Form Flow: Avoiding Overwriting Certain Data if...

So we have a subset of folks for which it *may* be important, on occasion, to avoid overwriting certain associated data.

I now realize there are other ways around this, but for these cases, we created separated marketo first name, marketo last name fields.

My question: I’d like to run a smart campaign that copies the marketo first and last names in the already existing first name and last name fields, ie:

Change data value ‘marketo first name’ to {{lead.first name}}

Will that work? The other method would be to export all subs, manually copy the fn and ln fields in the marketo fn and ln fields, then reupload.

Thanks,

Dan

Ah ha, must have been why it didn't work. Thanks, Devraj.

Just checking but would you need to add a choice step in this case? You could build the smart list to include the leads you want copied and then just use Change Data Value to the First Name value.

BTW, voted for the idea

Seconding Emily -- what's the condition/choice here?  All I see is a CDV to a {{lead.token}}, which does work. It's the comparison to a token that doesn't work.
