Hi Marketo Community,
What is the best way to create/update a lead from an external form. This is the external form page: Scylla Cloud.
When someone signs up on this page, I want to create a new record if the lead is not in Marketo or update the record and log the activity of filling out this form.
You could try to do a background Marketo form submission when the record fills out the external form.
I am a little concerned about the password information you are collecting, be sure to ensure that you really need that piece of information in Marketo
Hope this helps!
Thanks Floyd! I'll try that. We don't need the password in Marketo so I'm not going to include that in the background form submission.
Good luck! Remember, you would need to ensure you are using the SOAP API names (and not REST API names) with this method.
Also note you're going to need to integrate with the existing validation framework on this form. It's not a vanilla HTML form, so you can't just hook the native submit event or you'll be posting partial/invalid data to Marketo.
