Is it possible to create leads in instance B based on the form fill out of instance A?

Hi All,

We have a situation where we need to create a lead in instance B based on the form fill out of instance A. The problem here is we have different pod urls for instance A (//app-sj25.marketo.com) and B (//app-sjf.marketo.com).

Is it possible to create leads in instance B based on the form fill out of instance A?

Thanks.

It's done like so:

MktoForms2 :: Cross-Post to another Marketo

(Was working on a blog post about why it needs to be done this way a couple of months ago -- will get back it now that the code is fleshed out.)

Below is the js code that we are using in the landing page of instance A to submit the forms.

<script src="//app-XXX.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.js"></script>

<form id="mktoForm_1780"></form>

<form id="mktoForm_1024" style="display:none;"></form>

<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-XXX.marketo.com", "XXX-XXX-XXX", 1780);</script>

<script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-YYY.marketo.com", "YYY-YYY-YYY", 1024);</script>

<script>

MktoForms2.whenReady(function (form) {

var emailAddress ;

form.onSubmit(function(){

var valuesForm1780 = form.getValues();

emailAddress = valuesForm1780.Email;

});

form.onSuccess(function(){

//on suucess of the form1 submission, we are submitting the second the second form

var secondForm = MktoForms2.allForms()[0].getId()==1780?MktoForms2.allForms()[1]:MktoForms2.allForms()[0];

secondForm.setValues({"Email":emailAddress});

secondForm.submit();//second form submission

});

});

</script>

C'mon, post the real code, not obfuscated, so I can tell you how it's done.

Please find below details.

Landing Page: https://mkto.test.com/Contact-Us-Simple_LP.html

Custom HTML with form details:

<head>

    <meta charset="utf-8">

    <title>Lead Creation Test</title>

</head>

<body>

    <h2>Lead Creation Test</h2>

    <p>Lead creation test page.

    </p>

    <script src="//app-xxx.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.js"></script>

    <form id="mktoForm_A"></form>

    <form id="mktoForm_B" style="display:none;"></form>

    <script>

        MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-XXX.marketo.com", "XXX-XXX-XXX", A);

    </script>

    <script>

        MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-YYY.marketo.com", "YYY-YYY-YYY", B);

    <script>

        MktoForms2.whenReady(function(form) {

            var fname;

            var lname;

            var emailAddress;

            let check = 0;

            form.onSubmit(function() {

                console.log('check in onSubmit' + check);

                if (check === 0) {

                    var valuesFormA = form.getValues();

                    fname = valuesFormA .FirstName;

                    lname = valuesFormA .LastName;

                    emailAddress = valuesFormA .Email;

                }

            });

            form.onSuccess(function(form) {

                if (check <= 1) {

                    emailAddress = 'ABC-' + emailAddress;

                    fname = 'ABC-' + fname;

                    lname = 'ABC-' + lname;

                    var secondForm = MktoForms2.allForms()[0].getId() == A? MktoForms2.allForms()[1] : MktoForms2.allForms()[0];

                    secondForm.addHiddenFields({

                        "Email": emailAddress

                    });

                    secondForm.addHiddenFields({

                        "FirstName": fname

                    });

Re: Is it possible to create leads in instance B based on the form fill out of instance A?

OK, thanks, now I can look at something.

Right away, I can see this is needlessly confusing:

var secondForm = MktoForms2.allForms()[0].getId() == 1780 ? MktoForms2.allForms()[1] : MktoForms2.allForms()[0];

If the "first" and "second" forms always have the same ID, there's no reason to go through these motions.

And MktoForms2.whenReady doesn't mean all forms are ready, so you can't immediately start checking indexes in allForms().

Anyway, the whole thing needs to be refactored and I can show you how it's done.

An alternate solution would be to create a smart campaign triggering off filled out form and calling a webhook and posting to the index.php/save endpoint of your 2nd instance
