*See our Safe Harbor Statement below Hello, welcome back to GRAX Labs. This is Dave Mackey. We're going to take a quick look today at the GRAX History Stream and how to configure the History Stream objects. So you can see here, I'm in my GRAX console. I'm on the History Stream tab here. You can see I've already configured two objects, the contacts and the account objects we can see ran earlier today. And that the records written for each object were two. Those were two new records. If I click on ‘configure,’ I'm able to add in any of the objects from my Salesforce environment, that I've backed up into my History Stream. So if I type in ‘case,’ for example, bring that over, click ‘update’ my list. I'm going to get my selection here. That's going to save. I can click ‘back’. You can see here last time this was written. It was November 1st.  So a few months ago, that's now going to update when this runs shortly. And then we're going to see those records then get populated and I'm able to then use those downstream for History Stream. We aren't going to go into detail today of how History Stream works, but important to know here, this is how we configure History Stream with GRAX. And then, once we have that configured, this is where we're then able to unlock all of the great data and analytics. And answer those important business questions that we can answer with all versions of all backed up data and all archive data, and being able to report on that data, using all those analytics tools such as, AWS QuickSight, Tableau CRM, Tableau Desktop, PowerBI, and other tools such as SQL databases as well. If you have any questions, please contact for more information.
