Max number of "Add Choices" in a DVC step?

Hi,


So I'm creating a data normalization campaign for leads in our database to change state/province fields from abbreviations to the full state/prov name so they can be synced to SFDC.

Does anyone know the maximum number of "Add choice" options I can use in a Data Value Change, before it either doesn't work or is too taxing on the system and does something bad?

With my state/prov pick-list, there's 63, and it looks like I've been able to add all 63 add choice fields, but when I started choosing "state" from the if/attributes, it takes a few moments before it selects. If this isn't a great idea, wanted to check if there was another more efficient way to do this? Maybe split into a group of campaigns?

Thanks!

Hi David,

We have a case working with 250 choices.

Thank you Gregoire, that's helpful to know. I just ran the campaign, and it worked quicker than expected with 63 choices, so that's awesome.

That's impressive. Does it load in the UI ok? That's the biggest issue I have with more than 5 choices.

Yes it does, but better do in the morning in Europe

This is a flow that converts country codes. Hence the 250.

BTW, I did not do it. I would have used a webhook instead

Yeah, good call- Update: Our Marketo rep advised me that best practice is to have no more than 20 add choice amounts.
