How do you load info to User object in MDA?

I have created two new fields in MDA on the User Object. They are "Last Survey Date" and "Next Survey Date". The intent was to pull from the Survey Participant table to snag the most recent date the customer was sent a survey from us. I was then going to load that date to the "Last Survey Date" field. Finally, I would add X days to that date and post the new date to "Next Survey Date". The end result is knowing that a customer is not receiving a survey from us more frequently than X days apart.

However, I am not seeing the option for the Users object when attempting to Load to MDA via a Bionic Rule. That object is just not listed when I attempt to add it and select the necessary fields.

I read through https://support.gainsight.com/Product_Documentation/Data_Management_and_Integrations/Gainsight_Standard_Objects/Gainsight_User_Object, but that didn't clear up my question (or I missed something).

Anyone have an answer here?

Or even better, a more recommended workflow to accomplish my end goal?

Thanks!

Hi Ben,

The User object is not available as an option in the Load to MDA action, however there's a separate "Load to User" action which you can use to update records in the User object.
