Answered by debbie Jha

 In the context of Salesforce, here are the steps given:-

Integration with email and calendar

You can use the Einstein activity capture for seamless integration with the email and calendar system used by your sales team.

Automatic data synchronization

Now you can use EACH ability to automatically sync data between the Salesforce and the integrated email or even calendar system. This would ensure that sales reps have up-to-date information within the salesforce without manual data entry.

Enhance sales insights

You can use the capture activities data to gain insights into sales reps' engagement levels, communication patterns and follow-up actions with customers.

Personalized engagement

You can use the insights gained from EAC for personalizing engagement with the customers. Tailor communication is based on past interactions, interests and preferences to build stronger relationships and improve sales outcomes.

Compliance band data privacy

You can ensure compliance with data privacy regulations during the time of capturing and storing activity data. You can implement appropriate security measures and user permission to protect sensitive information.

Here is an example given that would demonstrate how you can use the EAC for retrieving and analyzing the data:-

Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.BayeuxParameters;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.EmpConnector;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.TopicSubscription;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.example.BearerTokenProvider;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.example.Consumer;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.example.ConsumerExample;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.example.TopicSubscriptionExample;
Import com.salesforce.emp.connector.example.TopicSubscriptionListener;
Public class EACIntegration {
    Public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Initialize EAC connection and subscribe to activity topics
        BearerTokenProvider tokenProvider = new BearerTokenProvider(“YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN”);
        EmpConnector connector = new EmpConnector(tokenProvider);
        BayeuxParameters params = connector.login();
        TopicSubscription subscription = connector.subscribe(params, “/event/ActivityChangeEvent”,
                New TopicSubscriptionListener() {
                    Public void onEvent(Map event) {
                        // Process activity change event
                        System.out.println(“Received Activity Change Event: “ + event);
                        // Add your processing logic here
                    Public void onFailure(Throwable throwable) {
                        // Handle subscription failure
                        System.err.println(“Subscription failed: “ + throwable.getMessage());
        // Start listening for events
Here is the example given in python programming language:-
From simple_salesforce import Salesforce
From datetime import datetime
# Salesforce credentials
Username = ‘your_salesforce_username’
Password = ‘your_salesforce_password’
Security_token = ‘your_salesforce_security_token’
# Initialize Salesforce connection
Sf = Salesforce(username=username, password=password, security_token=security_token)
# Define the start and end dates for the time period
Start_date = datetime(2024, 1, 1)
End_date = datetime(2024, 3, 31)
# Format dates in Salesforce SOQL format (YYYY-MM-DD)
Start_date_str = start_date.strftime(‘%Y-%m-%d’)
End_date_str = end_date.strftime(‘%Y-%m-%d’)
# SOQL query to retrieve activity data from Einstein Activity Capture
Soql_query = f”””
SELECT Id, Subject, ActivityDate, Who.Name, What.Name
FROM Event
WHERE ActivityDate >= {start_date_str} AND ActivityDate <= {end_date_str}
# Execute the SOQL query
Query_result = sf.query_all(soql_query)
# Process and display the results
If query_result[‘totalSize’] > 0:
    Print(“Activity ID Subject Activity Date Who What”)
    For record in query_result[‘records’]:
        Activity_id = record[‘Id’]
        Subject = record[‘Subject’]
        Activity_date = record[‘ActivityDate’]
        Who_name = record[‘Who’][‘Name’] if record[‘Who’] else ‘’
        What_name = record[‘What’][‘Name’] if record[‘What’] else ‘’
        Print(f”{activity_id} {subject} {activity_date} {who_name} {what_name}”)
    Print(“No activity data found within the specified time period.”)
