Demodesk logs all relevant information back to Salesforce so you can track relevant data and run extensive reports. To enable data logging in Salesforce, you need to integrate Demodesk with your Salesforce account.
Demodesk automatically logs every meeting as Event in Salesforce. See below for an overview of activity fields and labels that are reported.
