Issue Description When you go through the "Add to Named Account" or "Remove from Named Account" flow actions, those changes sometimes aren't immediately reflected in the named accounts' dashboards. Issue Resolution ABM runs a recalculation task every 30 minutes to check for any changes in account scores, membership count, opportunity count, and pipeline for all of your existing Named Accounts. When you run a flow action to add or remove people from your named accounts, those changes will be reflected immediately in a smart list for "Member of Named Account". However, ABM can take up to 30 minutes to update, until the changes are captured by the next recalculation. If you are seeing a delay longer than an hour for your dashboards to update, submit a ticket to Marketo Support, and they can force a recalculation and investigate what could be causing the delay. Who This Solution Applies To All clients with ABM.

Included in this article How many total named accounts can I have within Marketo ABM? There is no limit from a product perspective. How many account lists can be created? 1,000 How many Named Accounts can be added to the Account List? 500 Is Marketo ABM Workspace specific? No. Named Accounts are visible to all the Workspaces. But Lead Partition rules are still honored. Which means you can see a named account in multiple Workspaces but depending on the Lead Partition rules, you can only see leads belonging to the corresponding Workspace within that named account. Which lead attributes are used for Lead-to-Account Matching? It is based on 3 lead attributes: Email Domain, IP Address and Company Name. We convert Email Domain and IP address to the Company Names and match all 3 to identify strong and weak matches. How are strong lead matches to Named Accounts determined? When the Company Name matches 3 out of 3, or 2 out of 3 times, then we consider this a strong match. How are weak lead matches to Named Accounts determined? When the Company Name matches only 1 out of 3 times, then we consider this a weak match. How can you make Marketo ABM automatically associate leads to Named Accounts? When you create a Named Account from any of the Discover grids, Marketo creates rules which then going forward are used to do automatic association of leads from the company to Named Accounts. Do I see all the CRM accounts in the Discover CRM grid? Yes, all the CRM accounts that are synced in Marketo show up here Does the number of CRM accounts match the number of CRM accounts shown in Discover CRM grid? Not necessarily. Marketo ABM does light de-duplication by CRM account names. First, we remove company suffixes before matching to company names. (Ex: Co, Corp, Corporation, Gmbh, Inc, Incorporated, LLC, LLP, LP, Ltd, PA, PC, PLC, PLLC). Second, we merge companies or CRM accounts in Marketo with duplicate names (not case sensitive) What does the Discover Marketo Companies grid show? This grid shows all the CRM accounts as well as Marketo Companies that we found in the Marketo lead database. What happens if I delete Named Accounts? None of the leads associated with the Named Accounts will be deleted. You can always go back to the Discover Companies grid and re-create the Named Account. Can I merge duplicate companies or CRM accounts manually in Marketo? Yes. You can use Discover Marketo Companies to do that. How is the week-over-week engagement over time chart determined and how frequently it is calculated? We take daily account scores and show the maximum account score for that week. This chart is calculated every 8 hours. How is the week-over-week pipeline chart determined and how frequently it is calculated? We add the total sum for the 'Amount' of all opportunities except closed-won and closed-lost. We show opportunity amount on last day of the week. This chart is calculated every 24 hours. How is the week-over-week revenue chart determined and how frequently it is calculated? We add the total sum of the 'Amount' of all the closed-won opportunities on a weekly basis. This chart is calculated every 24 hours. Does Marketo ABM backfill data for engagement over time charts? No. Engagement is tracked from the time Named Accounts are created. We don't backfill. How far back can I see engagement over time, pipeline and revenue charts? 90 Days. How far back are email and web activities calculated for? 30 Days. How is pipeline determined? Pipeline is calculated as a sum total of 'Amount' for all open opportunities except closed-won and closed-lost in CRM accounts. How frequently are account scores calculated? Every 30 minutes. How is Currency calculated? Currency is the Subscription currency. Marketo ABM does not covert the currency. Does Marketo ABM support Account hierarchy? Not in this current version, but it is planned for future versions.

Included in this article Lead-to-Account Matching Why aren't leads automatically associating with my named accounts? Because the named accounts have not been created from the Discover Company grid or Discover CRM grid. Marketo ABM only supports automatic association when you create Named Accounts from Discover grids. Why do the incorrect leads get associated with my Named Accounts? The most common cause of this is an error made associating the company to the incorrect Named Account. The Support team has the ability to delete the rule for further association of the wrong leads to accounts. Contact Marketo Support for more detailed information. Discover CRM Accounts or Discover Marketo Companies Why do I see fewer numbers of CRM accounts in the Discover CRM account grid than in my CRM system? Marketo ABM de-duplicates the CRM accounts based on their account name. (e.g. the 2 CRM Accounts "Acme" and "acme" would show as 1 company in discover grids). Why can't I see the new contacts and opportunities automatically associated with my Named Account that I created based on that CRM account? Make sure the Named Account was created from the Discover CRM grid. Make sure the CRM account name in the CRM system has not changed. If it has been changed, then go back to the Discover CRM grid and associate the new CRM record in this grid with the existing Named Account. I can't see any company names in Discover CRM grid or Discover Companies grid. This will require help from the Support team. Contact Marketo Support for more detailed information. I have a bunch of leads from a specific company, but I don't see this company in the Discover grid. It can take a few minutes up to a few hours to process the new leads in the lead database before the company is proposed on the Discover grid. Check if the leads were recently created in the system. The company name on the leads could be different than the company name in the Discover grid. One of the databases we use matches companies to domains used, but another one may have a different company listed, which will get sorted out as the databases update the records. This issue could also be caused by information from those leads coming from an ISP, or if they have public email domains (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo). We don't show these company names in the Discover grid. Top Accounts Why I can't see any named accounts in my Top Named Account list? ABM won't show Named Accounts in Top Accounts with ZERO pipeline or ZERO account score. Top People Why can't I see people with stars and flames at account level? This will happen if your subscription doesn't have Sales Insight enabled Interesting Moments Why don't I see Interesting Moments at account level? This will happen if your subscription doesn't have Sales Insight enabled Email Activities Why can't I see Email metrics such as number of emails sent at account level? This will happen if your subscription doesn't have Email Insights enabled User License Why can't my users see the new ABM Tile? Each user must have an ABM license issued in order to access the tile. User Permission Why can't I create/edit/delete a Named Account, Account Lists etc. This will happen if the user doesn't have permissions enabled to create/edit/delete Named Accounts. Logos Why can't I see the Logo for my Named Account? Logos are not supported when y ou merge 2 companies into 1 Named Account Additional Documentation Here are some links to related Documentation that you may find useful: Account Based Marketing (ABM) FAQ - Product Facts & Figures Account Based Marketing Overview - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Issue a License - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Permissions - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Configure CRM Mapping - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Account Score - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Account Lists - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Add People to a Named Account - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Discover Accounts - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Lead to Account Matching - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Named Accounts - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Account Filters - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Account Triggers - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - ABM Main Dashboard - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Account List Insights - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Named Account Dimension in RCA - Marketo Docs - Product Docs Account Based Marketing - Named Account Insights - Marketo Docs - Product Docs

1. In order to improve our targeting abilities, once a known lead is visiting your website we are overriding his company name by using his email domain. This way, even if the visitor is not currently at his office, but visiting your website from his house, instead of appearing as an ISP (Comcast Cables / AT&T..) he will appear as coming from the company associated with the email domain he used. For example, someone is known in Marketo Lead Database as john@yale.edu – once he will visit your website he will show up as coming from Yale University even if he is not currently at his office.   2. IP based geo-location targeting has a 95% accuracy rates for country level and around 85% for states which is why you may sometime see discrepancies. Location identification is not 100%, especially with ISP’s.   Given this information, the visitors might be at their home using an IP that is registered as in the wrong city and sometime even state. Once we override the company name they will still appear as coming from their company but a wrong location. Is this article helpful ? YesNo

The IP geolocation lookup for ISPs (Internet Service Providers) is 95% accurate, the reason is that they use different physical proxies and change their routing more often. Over time we follow the changes and update our database continuously. For known leads - the system tracks your leads regardless of their current IP so you can also use the lead database fields (like scoring). Is this article helpful ? YesNo
