How to Create a Job Change Report in Salesforce

Last Updated: May 17, 2022

With Clearbit's proprietary job change data, it’s now possible to see when your existing leads, contacts, or champions change jobs. 

Our inactiveAt field represents the time at which we first believe a Lead or Contact became inactive at that position. It's updated nightly in Salesforce and is powered on 2 key data-points:

  1. Email Deliverability: once a month, we'll ping the email to make sure it's active.
  2. Employment: once a month, we'll check the Clearbit Person employment data for changes.

You can get started by running a report on all Leads (or Contacts) where inactiveAt has a value. Within a few seconds, you'll be able to save your time a heap of time by weeding out a group of stale contacts.

The way to surface this insight is to pull a simple Salesforce report. In Clearbit Analytics - choose the first report Recent Contact and Lead Inactive Emails.

  5. Confirm that the Create Date field is set to All time.
  6. In the Add filter search bar, find Clearbit: inactiveAt, and set it to not equal to "".
  7. Run the report, and that's it!

💡 Clearbit Tip: As a best practice, we'd recommend scheduling the report to run once a month.
