Problem: How do you calculate the amount of "Email" Tasks for each Contact record?


Quickly deploy one of Rollup Helper pre-built rollups named, "Number of Emails." The Number of Emails use case calculates the amount of Tasks of type "Email" for each Contact record. This use case deploys one Rollup Helper setting and one field, "rhuc_Number_Of_Emails."

Once logged into your Salesforce organization click on the App Launcher or All Tabs and search for "Rollup Helper." Click on the "Browse Use Cases" tile and click Deploy next to the Number of Emails label:

  • Please Note: Field Level Security will not be automatically set when creating fields through Rollup Helper, and the field will not automatically be added to page layouts. Please ensure that the newly created field is added to all desired layouts and permission sets once the rollup creation process has concluded.
