We currently have a process to collect data values from prospects through forms. For example, "How many distribution centers does your network have?". Prospects will answer this information, which triggers an alert to me that an Earned Data field has changed. That field is synced to Salesforce and is write-able both ways. The sync IS working, and the value DOES make it into Salesforce.
However, periodically many of these fields are being overwritten and changed back to "Null". I will receive all of the alerts in the exact same minute - so, for example, at 11:09am two days ago, 17 fields were reset to Null from those fields. There are no existing workflows in Salesforce that would clean those fields. There is also no consistent time that all of the fields are changed.
I have no idea why these fields would be reset - this does not happen with fields other than those we're including in these forms. Any ideas as to why there would be a systematic reset of these fields!?! I'm stumped. Here's what the action log looks like:
The individual action looks like this:

Yes, you're just restating the issue, though. That does not solve the problem. We know it's pushing a null value back into Marketo - but the value had been "Mixed" in Salesforce before it was cleared.
In other words, the Salesforce value should NOT be null. It's clearing the value that was entered during the Sync for some reason. But we don't have any triggers to clear the value in Salesforce, so we don't know why that is happening. Could it be an issue with the permissions, that doesn't allow Marketo to permanently write the value in Salesforce? And if not, why would they all change back at the same time?
Hey Zach - you might want to start a new question on this; this thread is three years old and the OP's account is deactivated.
