Now that we can create custom objects, it would be very efficient to be able to create custom object flows through flow steps, exactly as we can do with tasks.
For each custom object defined in the admin, we would need 3 flow steps:
The create/update could also be replaced with 1 upsert one.
Obviously, if it's a SFDC custom objects, the fields available would have to be set through mapping.
With regards to Marketo custom objects, all fields created in Marketo should be available to be set in the flow steps.
All the fields of the custom objects could be set with tokens.
Typical usage : I create a custom object : product interest, with a few fields (Time frame, quantities). I Create the same fields at lead level, that I use in a form. Once a lead fills out the form, I create a custom instance and populate the fields with the lead tokens.
We should also be able to update them, though the same mechanism.
Greg, I'm at a point where the exact use case you mentioned is relevant. Do you have an explanation of how you currently accomplish this? We need to track product interests and we have far too many to track by adding fields into the Lead record.
I see 2 workarounds here:
Deleting records is very straightforward. Just select your deleteBy mode, either idField or dedupeFields, and include the corresponding fields in each of the records in your input array.
Need functionality - delete all records in a custom object without listing specific records for the "deleteBy" field. Without deleting the custom object.
We have a project underway which will indirectly support this. Stay tuned
@Mike_Crook7 Self-Service Flow Steps is currently in closed beta. This will allow customers and partners to implement services that can be deployed as flow steps within Marketo. There's some development required, but you can build a service to call our custom object apis in order to perform CRUD operations on custom objects.
