Allow Acquisition Programs to be Set via List Upload

Allow Acquisition Programs to be Set via List Upload

I'm currently in the process of backfilling several dozen acquisition programs to have historical members even before the current iteration of the program in order to keep consistency in reporting. While I can timestamp Acquisition Dates pretty effortlessly, adding/changing Acquisition Programs require Smart Campaign changes in order for Marketo to recognize manual overrides; I'd like the ability to add this via list rather than have it blocked by System Management.

Hi Courtney,

I gather that you are writing about the case when you have multiple, different acquisition programs for leads in a same import list ?

A workaround is to set them just after import using a "data value change". This means you would have to use an additionnal field to import the value and use choices to test that field value and set the right acquisition program.

Hi Greg,

This is actually what I wound up having to do; I'd just like in the future to not have to make a Smart Campaign to handle dozens of varied Acquisition Programs when I know what they all should be set to be in one go.

Would it only update if blank? How would you avoid overwriting existing data?
