Change data type for CRM field

Can we change the CRM custom field data type in Marketo eg. Suppose if field is Whole number in CRM then can we change it as Score or currency in Marketo? Please suggest.

Re: Change data type for CRM field

Hi Harish,

Yes you can. Pay attention to data loss if the new type is not compatible with the data. I am not sure that you will be allowed to make any sort of changed, though, but changing a number into a score is possible. We often do it for score fields. if the field has values that might have been set from the CRM, I would rather create a backup prior to doing it.
