Program Status is Changed trigger

Can someone pick up something wrong here? This is a GoToWebinar event program.

I have a Fills out form trigger with a Change Program Status flow step. The flow step either changes someone to "Registered" or "Not in Program".

I have a second campaign that is a "Program Status is Changed" trigger, with the constraint New Value: "Registered".

I cannot for the life of me figure out how people who have been changed to "Not in Program" have entered my registration campaign?

What exactly do you want to have happen?

The flow step choice should be a positive statement. The problem is that when they fill out a local Form, they become a Member automatically, but then you are kicking them out and they already triggered the other campaign.

It might be better to explain why you want to take some people in, and others out. Usually, it's easier to block people at the Smart List level.

Re: Program Status is Changed trigger

I guess I'm trying to determine if the trigger "Program status is changed" is working correctly with the constraint of "New Status... is Webinar > Registered".

My 1st campaign is just to move people to the correct registration, or boot them from the program - are webinar is for a certain cohort of students, but not others (who also happen to be form fill-out tyre kickers).

I wonder if the GTW program regards any fill out form as a registration, not just a flow-step that specifically identifies when to change status.

In other words, this:

Seems to be accepting leads that are never having their status changed to Registered. The only status change they have encountered is a "Not In Program", and the reason is because Marketo is assuming (incorrectly), that any form fill-out attached to this program is a registration.

Re: Program Status is Changed trigger

oh hang on, I understand now what is happening, because Registered is my first step.

I have always updated my statuses using a flow-step.. it has never occurred to me that the first status is automatically assigned. I didn't even think membership was automatic. Is this the case for all programs?
