Issue When trying to clone a Form or Landing page from Design Studio to a specific Program under Marketing Activities, there is no list of programs that appear.   Solution This is expected behavior. When you don't see a program listed, this is because the number of programs in Marketing Activities actually exceeds what we're able to display at one time. If you start typing into the Program field in the pop-up window, you should start to see programs listed in the drop-down. For example, you enter the name of the particular program, you will get a result.

Issue Does Marketo re-use or recycle old deleted lead IDs?  Root Cause After a lead is fully deleted, it would be very rare for the lead ID to be re-used. The vast majority of the time lead IDs are unique and not re-used. If you have an external database or reporting system that relies on a unique lead ID, the best practice would be to ensure these systems are up-to-date on all lead deletions.

Issue You receive the error message of "exceeded limit" for Program Member Custom Fields (the documented limit is 20), but you don't see 20 fields listed in the Admin > Field Management > Program Program Member Info area.   Root Cause There may be Program Member Custom Fields in your Marketo instance that are hidden. These hidden fields still count toward your limit of 20.  As next steps, in Admin > Field Management, review the Hidden Fields area to find the hidden Program Member Custom Fields, and un-hide them. After un-hiding them, they will appear under Admin > Field Management > Program Program Member Info. To resolve the "exceeded limit" error, unused fields should be deleted. Reach out to Marketo Support to delete Program Member Custom Fields.

Issue An email asset with a program MyToken is not reflecting correctly after a campaign send, even though the email asset is within a program with the correct token value. Root Cause If the smart campaign that sent the email is in a different program, the MyToken reference will come from the program of the sending smart campaign, not the program where the email lives.

Issue The SFDC sync error "Unable to process due to no XML response from Salesforce" appears. Root Cause This error means Marketo received an invalid XML response returned by SFDC. Most often, this is a transient error from SFDC and resolves on its own in the next sync cycles.  If the error persists or is continually blocking your sync, please reach out to Marketo Support.

Issue Leads are stuck in a smart campaign's Wait Step and have not moved onto next steps, even though the Wait Step has been updated/shortened and the lead should move onto the next step. Solution When a lead enters a Wait Step, it remains in the Wait Step as defined at the moment they entered it. For example, if the lead enters a 1 week Wait Step, it will remain in the step for 1 week. If the Wait Step is updated to be longer or shorter (for example, shortened to 3 days or extended to 2 weeks), the lead that already entered the Wait Step (when it was 1 week) will remain in the Wait Step for the original duration. New leads entering the Wait Step will abide by the new duration.

Issue Customers may run into limitations with Webhook providers or other third party REST services that require their fields are an integer type field.  This may present issues with those values being inputted to Marketo (and other systems) accurately if a record has a value outside of the integer value limitation range: -2147483647 to 2147483647   Environment Marketo/Third Party REST/Webhook Providers Solution There is no way to increase/modify the integer value limitations on the Marketo side.  This is not a Marketo product limitation, it's the defined constraints of Integer data types. If you're running into issues with values from a third party/webhook provider falling outside of the limitation range, this will present issues with the field value being accurately logged in Marketo. In this scenario, it's worth checking with the third party/webhook provider to see if they have any flexibility around which field types they can allow (for example, String or Float type fields have less limitations and will allow for larger or smaller numbers outside of the -2147483647 to 2147483647 range). For a full overview of Marketo field limitations, you can visit the below article: Marketo Field Limits by Field Type

Want to gauge how many leads clicked through a link you have in your social media or other outlets? This can be done using URL Parameters at the end of the URLs you use. Basically, you just add a little bit of code to the end of the hyperlinked URL. When leads click through and arrive at your Landing Page, that code can be captured into a hidden Form field. Here’s how to do it.   Quick Overview of URL Parameters In the structure of a URL, there are two main parts. The first part is used for navigation, and the second part is used to pass data along. The two parts are separated by a question mark. For example, let’s look at this URL:   www.myawesomewebsite.com?URLParameter=ThisIsAParameter   The first part of the URL, “www.myawesomewebsite.com” is the main part of the URL used for navigation. The whole rest of the URL from the question mark on, “?URLParameter=ThisIsAParameter” is referred to as a querystring. It isn’t needed for navigation to the page specified, but can be used to pass the extra data you want to include.   This is a article attached image   The querystring contains the URL Parameters, which are used to push data into the hidden Form fields. In the querystring “?URLParameter=ThisIsAParameter” used here, “URLParameter” corresponds to the name of the parameter you use when designating the value for the hidden Form field, and “ThisIsAParameter” will be the value that is actually entered into that field. You can add additional values into additional other fields by adding those into the format of the URL separated by an ampersand like this:   www.myawesomewebsite.com?URLParameter=ThisIsAParameter&URLParameter2=ThisIsValue2&URLParameter3=ThisIsValue3   In this example, you’ve got the same initial value being pushed into the first hidden field, but now two more hidden fields will store the next two values as well. The name of the parameter for the second hidden field would be “URLParameter2” and the value put into it would be “ThisIsValue2”. The third hidden field parameter name would be “URLParameter3” and the value put into this field would be “ThisIsValue3”. This is a article attached image Applying This to Social Media Use So, how does this let you track leads coming from each of your social media sources? Well, in setting up your different promotional channels, when adding the hyperlink, you can customize the URL parameter for each channel so that the values passed will input the information specific to where they came from. The parameter values will change from one social media outlet to the next, but the structure and format will stay the same.   Let’s use the social media sources of Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook as examples. Since you’re looking to identify the source of these leads, you’d likely want to name your parameter as “Source” so that it’s easily identifiable. Using the same base URL, let’s see how you’d structure the URLs. For hyperlinks placed on Twitter: www.myawesomewebsite.com?Source=twitter For hyperlinks placed on LinkedIn: www.myawesomewebsite.com?Source=linkedin For hyperlinks placed on Facebook: www.myawesomewebsite.com?Source=facebook   When leads fill out the form on your landing page, the Source field will then tell you exactly where they came from! The best part, this is completely customizable and scalable. You can add more parameters and hidden fields to capture additional information like what campaign it is for.   Documentation How to make form fields hidden: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/en/docs/marketo/using/product-docs/demand-generation/forms/form-fields/set-a-form-field-as-hidden How to define hidden form field value: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/en/docs/marketo/using/product-docs/demand-generation/forms/form-fields/set-a-form-field-as-hidden (Look for the section on URL Parameters in particular) Using the URL builder to generate the URLs you’ll be using: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/en/docs/marketo/using/product-docs/demand-generation/landing-pages/personalizing-landing-pages/using-the-url-builder

Summary The customer wants to know if a nurture email was not sent to a recipient due to communication limit, then will it be sent in the next cast, or that email will not be sent again? Issue Individual(s) were supposed to get an email from a Nurture (Engagement) Program cast but failed to receive the email due to hitting the communication limits set in the instance. Do you need to manually send the email to the individual(s) via a separate Smart Campaign or will it be sent, automatically, on the subsequent cast for the Nurture Program? Environment Marketing Activities Nurture Programs Engagement Programs Admin Communication Limits   Solution You don't need to act on these scenarios as the individual(s) impacted by the Communication Limits will be sent the applicable email in the next cast for the Nurture Program. The only reason that the individual wouldn't be sent the email in the subsequent cast for the Nurture Program would be if the person would hit their Comm Limit again. Should that happen, you might want to review your Communication Limits settings or review the individual(s) impacted and see why they keep hitting the Comm Limits. Reference: How Do Communication Limits Work? - Marketing Nation (marketo.com) Root Cause Communication Limits being hit during Nurture Program cast execution

Issue You have a Batch Campaign or Email Program setup where the amount of people qualified is more than what's listed under the Smart Campaign Person Restrictions limit (for more context, see Enabling Person Restrictions for Smart Campaigns). Within that same program or campaign, you calculate that between the number of qualified people reduced by how many are blocked from processing puts the total count of records below the Person Restrictions for the instance. Would the campaign or email program still execute and process the appropriate leads that aren't blocked or does Marketo solely look at qualified members to determine if that's more than allowed based on Person Restrictions? Environment Admin Marketing Activities Marketo Scheduling Solution Yes, the campaign will still run as expected. Both Email Programs and Smart Campaigns effectively disqualify non-marketable people before processing records towards the Campaign Processing limit. Example: Your instance is setup to limit campaigns from processing more than 500k records in a given Smart Campaign. If you have 600k qualified for your Smart List (Audience) but 200k of the records are blocked, the campaign will still run as only 400k marketable people qualify to actually get processed through the campaign. Blocked records don't get processed through the campaign execution and, therefore, don't add or contribute to campaign processing limits.

Issue Field values updated in Marketo do not sync to SFDC when the record exists as a Contact.  Environment Marketo - CRM Native contact Sync Solution The issue is caused by the interaction of the Block Field Updates with the conflict resolution rules for Contacts described here.  The Block Field Updates will prevent Marketo from writing values from Salesforce into Marketo, but it does not prevent the sync from attempting to sync those values. If a field has Block Field Updates enabled to prevent updates from SFDC and that fields gets updated in both Marketo and Salesforce at the same time, Marketo will attempt to use our conflict resolutions rules to allow the update from SFDC to override the Marketo updated.  The Block Field Update prevents this from occurring which leaves the records stuck unable to update the value in either system. To resolve the issue for the specific records, the Block Field Updates setting must be removed for the specific values to allow the values from Salesforce to sync down. Then the feature can be re-enabled. To prevent recurrences of the issue in the future, Users and processes in Salesforce must be prevented from editing those values to prevent a conflict from occurring.

Summary Marketo Form Does Not Appear on a Landing Page Issue Marketo Form embedded on a Landing Page and the Form does not load.  Environment Marketo Solution If you are able to reproduce the behavior in a Private Browsing window using Firefox, then issue is most likely caused by the embed being used. Examine the embed code on the page and ensure that the Form is loading using your instance's Landing Page Domain.  For example you may see your embed code formatted as   <script src="//app-sj01.marketo.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script> <form id="mktoForm_1"></form> <script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//app-sj01.marketo.com", "123-ABC-456", 1);</script> It instead it should look like  <script src="//123-ABC-456.mktoweb.com/js/forms2/js/forms2.min.js"></script> <form id="mktoForm_1"></form> <script>MktoForms2.loadForm("//123-ABC-456.mktoweb.com", "123-ABC-456", 1);</script> Once the embed code has been updated, load the page again and the Form should now appear.     Root Cause Firefox released a privacy update that blocks loading of certain elements directly from the marketo.com domain. This prevents Marketo Forms from loading when they point to a source of marketo.com. Updated the embed code to use your Landing Page Domain allows the form to load correctly.
