hint text or separate triggers for visits web page URL and Marketo LP name

I think it's confusing from a user perspective that you have a single "visits web page" trigger when you must enter the values in completely differently.

For non-MKTO pages, you use "contains", remove the https:// or http://, and plug in the URL.

For MKTO landing pages, you use "is" and use the formal Marketo name of the page.

But this isn't really documented anywhere and isn't even a hint text on the trigger on how to use it. Extremely difficult to figure out for new users.

It also causes the user to have to implement separate triggers anyway.

I'd give this a like if it said "hint text for how to set value of Visits Web Page trigger". All in favor of hint text, but I think separate triggers would be more confusing.

Thanks Grant!

You can use "is" for external URLs, Marketo just has to have registered a visit to the page already in order for it to be considered a valid target for the trigger/filter.

although this doesn't always seem to work.

This should work as Kenny says but it won't always have the "http://" or even "www."

Visit an external page with Munhckin on it, wait 30 mins, and then try to enter a few queries into the box. Something should come up. Let me know if it doesn't.
