I have a date field on the contact that I also want to show up on the account. Is there a way to map this to the account?

I figured it out. I need to note that the Next OB Session on the Contact was changed for the criteria.

Yes Claire,
Create a field in Account (Date)
Create Process builder on Contact and update record on account obj by selecting Date field.

I did that. I have the contact field filling based on if there's a future event scheduled and clearing when the event is edited and it's in the past. 

I set up a process to have the account field equal that but every time I create the event to test it I get a workflow error based on the first process I built to fill the date field on the contact side.

Can you please update some pics?

The first 4 pictures are the Event > Contact process. The last 2 are to map date field Contact > Account.

So you have a Field called OB Session date on contact
you want to populate the same OB Session date on Account aswell (Assuming we have a date type field is created)

Am I correct Claire?

Yes exactly. I have the field built on both Account and Contact and called the same thing

Last question?

What is the criteria for updating contact back to account?

So I initially had no criteria and added this in when I kept getting the error. It's saying that the Next OB Session date field is either populated or empty. Probably isn't necessary but I was trying some things

Disable this if its enabled in any of the PB, this option will be seen in object selection screen.
