Issue You want to re-map a synced SFDC field to a different field in Marketo. Solution Yes, it is possible to re-map Salesforce - Marketo fields after initial sync. For this you need to Contact Marketo support with a request for your current field mapping and your desired field mapping. You will need to provide the Marketo Field(s) and the Salesforce API Name(s), then format your request similar to the example below.   Important Note Before initiating the re-mapping, please export the records and their field values from Marketo and import the values into their Salesforce or create a smart campaign to write the data from one field into the other. This is important so that there is no data loss after the remapping work has been performed. Marketo will not automatically push these values to SFDC, after the mapping is complete.   Example Request Current Mapping: Field Label: [Marketo Field Name 1] CRM Field Map: fieldName__c (SFDC Lead)   Field Label: [Marketo Field Name 2] CRM Field Map: fieldName__c (SFDC Contact) Desired Mapping: Field Label: [Marketo Field Name 1] CRM Field Map: fieldName__c (SFDC Lead) fieldName__c (SFDC Contact)   Field Label: [Marketo Field Name 2] CRM Field Map:   Limitations - Fields need to be of the same type (String/String, Date/Date, etc) - Fields can only have one of each object type (eg: A Marketo Field could be mapped to a SFDC_1 (Lead) field and a SFDC_1(Contact) field, but can not be mapped to both SFDC_1 (Lead) and SFDC_2 (Lead). - Fields can be mapped to a maximum of 2 SFDC fields - SFDC fields can only be mapped to one field in Marketo   Please note that there may be additional limitations in certain circumstances. The Marketo Support agent that handles your request will provide any further details should such a situation arise.

Issue My SFDC production instance is undergoing Instance Refresh Maintenance in SFDC. Will this impact the SFDC and Marketo sync? Salesforce Article: Help And Training Community Solution Provided the org ID of your SFDC environment stays the same, it will remain connected to your Marketo instance. As best practice, double check with your SFDC team that all of your SFDC records will retain their unique IDs after the refresh. After the refresh occurs, double check that the Marketo connection in Marketo (under Admin > Salesforce) is intact.

Issue You encounter a "Couldn't connect to host" SFDC sync error. Environment Salesforce Solution This is a message returned by Salesforce to Marketo indicating that for some time, Salesforce couldn't be accessed because the SFDC servers were temporarily down. This could be caused by transient SFDC Server issues/outages but is most commonly caused due to scheduled Salesforce database maintenance. When these errors occur, Marketo will continue to sync to SFDC where it last left off once the Salesforce servers are back up and running - however, this only applies to records already syncing with SFDC. If any records affected by this sync error were attempting to initially sync (through "Sync person to SFDC" flow steps, for example), then the flow steps need to be run again to push any of those records to SFDC for the first time. The global background sync works on its own and will automatically retry to sync any recently updated records (that were already previously syncing with SFDC) after the Salesforce server outage has been resolved. Root Cause Server outage or scheduled maintenance on SFDC servers

Summary Admin unsubscribe HTML is overriding unsubscribe language hard-coded into an email template Issue You are trying to add unique unsubscribe text to a specific email asset template's code (for example: unsubscribe text in another language), but the Admin Unsubscribe HTML found in Admin > Email > Settings is overriding it.    Environment Design Studio/Admin Solution To implement dynamic unsubscribe text by language into an email asset, we recommend using the Segmentations and snippets, placing the {{system.unsubscribeLink}} directly into the email asset via the snippet as the presence of this system token in the email asset should override the Admin unsubscribe HTML.

Issue You notice that new records in Marketo have the 'Website' and 'Company Name' fields populated with the domain of their email address.     Solution This will happened when a new lead is created by a form fill-out.

This design decision has been a part of the code for many years where the domain of the email is used for the company name and website fields on the lead record. This feature cannot be disabled.

Issue How page views and form fills are counted in the statistics section of a Marketo Landing Page asset. Solution How they're calculated When viewing the Landing Page asset in either Design Studio or Marketing Activities, the statistics section provides information regarding page views and form fill outs, if the page has a form located on it.  The page views are a cumulative total indicating how many times the page was loaded, regardless if the visitor was a known record in the database. This means anonymous people can record a view here, due to Munchkin tracking on the page. This section provides a total number of views, not unique visits. This means that a person can load this page multiple times and each visit will be tallied in this section. The form fills section (x Filled out Form (x%)), indicates how many times a visitor filled the form out on the page, if it has one. This total is also counted in the same way the views section is, meaning it's a total number of submissions. Therefore, if a record in your database fills out the form more than once on a page, it will be counted toward the total.   Difference between calculations The difference between these two metrics is that the page views will keep a historical record of visits to the page. This means the total will not change if you happen to delete a bunch of records that visited the page in question - the total persists regardless if the record is no longer in the database. With that said, the forms section does not. This area is tied specifically to the existence of that known record in your database. This means that, once a record who filled the form out is removed from your database, the submissions they performed will be subtracted from the total.

Issue You may notice that there may be a block in SFDC that stops syncing unsubscribes from Marketo to SFDC. After fixing the block in SFDC the new unsubscribes will sync as expected.  Here is how to get all the unsubscribes that happened before this fix to sync into SFDC. Solution You would need to set up a campaign to reset the field value. Smart list: Unsubscribed = true Flow: Change data value  "unsubscribed" -> False Change data value  "unsubscribed" -> True   That would take everyone who is currently unsubscribed, switch to false and then back to true. That should cause the true value to sync up to SFDC for all of those records. However, make sure you do this at a time when you are absolutely positive there are no email campaigns going out.

Issue Leads are members of a Marketo Program that is synced with a SFDC campaign, but there are some leads that have not synced to SFDC. Solution 1.) First check to see if this was caused by a Salesforce Sync Error. This can be checked in the Admin area under Admin > Salesforce > Sync Errors. Additionally, errors will appear under Notifications, check for the subject 'Salesforce Sync Error: Unable to Add Leads to Campaigns'. This will list the details of the SFDC Error and a list of sample leads along with the Salesforce campaign that they failed to sync to Example error: INSUFFICIENT_ACCESS_ON_CROSS_REFERENCE_ENTITY: insufficient access rights on cross-reference id Sample Leads:    Salesforce Campaign lead1@mail.com    Campaign name lead2@mail.com    Campaign name 2.) This can also be caused by mismatched statuses between the Marketo Program and the SFDC Campaign.  If the status doesn't exist on both sides, leads with the problem status can fail to sync. 3.) This can also be caused by a backlog for the program/campaign sync. Check with Marketo Support to see if a backlog is present.   Who This Solution Applies To Customers using Marketo with Salesforce integrated

Question: Is it possible to assign a lead owner during a list import?   Answer: No. The reason for this is because lead ownership is a Salesforce functionality and should be first done from within Salesforce. If you are not able to do the assignment in Salesforce, here is one option that is available to you within Marketo:   1) Upload your leads into Marketo's Lead Database without lead owner information. i.e. your import CSV will not have any lead owner column in it. More information on importing leads can be found here: Import a List of Leads from a Spreadsheet into Marketo (Import List).   2) Once the list import is successfully completed and your leads are in Marketo, you can use the "Sync Person to SFDC" flow action to assign lead ownership. More information on the "Sync Person to SFDC" flow action at Sync Person to SFDC.
