Issue Your Salesforce sync cycle is taking longer than usual.  How long is too long?     Solution By default, Marketo starts each Salesforce sync cycle five minutes after the previous cycle completes.  Each sync cycle may take a couple of minutes or a couple of hours, depending on how much data needs to be written across.  If you notice your sync cycles seem to be taking longer than usual, here are some things to check. Have you done a large update recently?  This can create a backlog that can take time to work through. Have you added new fields to any of your synced Salesforce objects?  The more fields on the object, the more data needs to be written across, extending the sync cycle. If you would like to streamline your Salesforce sync, do an audit in Salesforce of fields visible to the Marketo Sync User.  If there are any fields that are not used in Marketo, remove visibility to them so Marketo does not waste time syncing them.

Issue Lead conversion/qualification through workflows in Microsoft Dynamics CRM resulting to duplicates (i.e. Lead and Contact) in Marketo Environment Microsoft Dynamics CRM Lead conversion Sync Solution While lead qualification through workflows is currently not supported, one approach that we saw implemented by a customer that did not result in duplicates is by redeveloping the lead qualification workflow using the msdyncrmWorkflowTools (1.0.54.0): QualifyLead step. Dynamics-365-Workflow-Tools/Qualify Lead.md at master · demianrasko/Dynamics-365-Workflow-Tools This was verified to result in no duplicates as the workflow writes the "Create [Qualify Lead]' operation type to the Marketo Log which is like the standard qualify button. Should there be any further assistance needed in developing the lead conversion workflow, it's recommended to engage with our Professional Services / Consulting team Root Cause Marketo's integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM currently does not support custom qualify workflows.

Image: Step Flow for Predictive Content for Web and Email What is Auto Content Discovery? This post explains the first part of the flow image above: discovering, mapping, and tracking your content assets. Content Discovery is used in the Predictive Content app to auto-discover all the content assets (videos, pdfs, blog posts, press releases, white papers, etc.) on a website/domain. Once discovered, you can see how your content is performing and decide which pieces of content should be prepared, approved, and enabled for the Predictive Content outcomes on web (either in the recommendation bar or rich media) and email.   Setting up Predictive Content and Content Discovery See Set Up Docs: http://docs.marketo.com/display/public/DOCS/Getting+Started+with+Predictive+Content Steps RTP Javascript tag is installed on all your web pages (Note: RTP is now called Web Personalization) Set Asset Discovery to On Asset Discovery auto-discovers extensions (PDFs, PPT, MP4, OFF, WEBM) and a click/view on embedded videos (Youtube, Vimeo, Wistia) Create URL Patterns Setting URL patterns auto-discovers content when a web visitor clicks on the HTML web page relevant to the content pattern. The URL syntax pattern determines your ability to use this feature optimally (e.g., to create a pattern for press releases, your press releases should all be stored on a page identified as www.yoursite.com/press-releases/*). How is content auto-discovered? The content discovery technology uses an event listener that runs on every web page (where the RTP Javascript tag is installed) and waits for a web visitor to click on a URL link or arrive directly on that web page in a browser. If that link includes an extension (PDF, ppt, embedded video) or matches the URL pattern defined, then it will be discovered and added to the All Content page in the Predictive Content app.   Only content pieces that a web visitor interacted with (clicked on or viewed) once the RTP Javascript tag has been installed are discovered via Content Discovery. If the content is already discovered, it will add to the tracking and views of those discovered pieces. You can also manually add new content to be listed and tracked in the All Content page.   Image: All Content Page in the Predictive Content app displaying and tracking all discovered content What data is discovered? Visitor Data (Used for Analytics + Predictive Algorithm) Pages Viewed  - number of page views by the user in the session Visit Count for Web Visitor Last Content URL Seen Last 5 Content Assets clicked via Predictive Content that this visitor has seen in the last 90 days Last Web Campaigns Seen - 10 last campaigns per session (within the last 5 sessions) Inferred Organization Inferred, Industry, Size, Revenue Inferred Country, State, City Search Term   Content Data   Extensions Video (Youtube, Vimeo, Wistia) Video Name Video URL Video Image URL PDF PDF Name PDF URL   URL Patterns (HTML pages) Found via metadata of the HTML page Content Name Content URL Content Image URL Content Description What data is auto-populated during the auto-discovery phase? Based on the content data we discover, the aim is to populate as much of the Predictive Content as possible, making it quicker, easier and involves less prep work for you. However, you still need to review the discovered content and then approve and enable it for the Predictive Source (Email, Rich Media, Recommendation Bar). Assuming we discover an HTML page defined in URL patterns, this HTML content piece will be populated in the following fields in Predictive Content:   Predictive Content Fields Auto-Populated Value Notes Content Name (Content Name) Unique Value Content URL (Content URL) The URL is consistent for all sources (email, bar, rich media) Categories Video OR Category Name from URL Pattern If Video is discovered, the category is populated as Video. Category populated from defined URL Pattern. e.g., Marketo.com/blog = Blog all discovered content based on this URL would receive Blog as a category Category is consistent for all sources (email, bar, rich media) Content Title (Content Name)   Email Title (Content Name)   Email URL (Content URL)   Email Image URL (Content Image URL)   Email Button Label Read More Not Auto-populated. Default is "Read More." Rich Media Title (Content Name)   Rich Media URL (Content URL)   Rich Media Image URL (Content Image URL)   Rich Media Description (Content Description)   Bar Title (Content Name)   Bar URL (Content URL)       Image: Example of Populating Metadata for HTML content into Predictive Content

Issue When searching or grouping a list of leads based on email address filter ‘Contains’ @ sign, you may encountered the different numbers in the ‘People’ tab (result). Environment This behaviour is specific to the email filter as it uses two main indexes; we’ll call them Index 1 and Index 2 when using the contains/not contains operator. Index 1 searches for the entire email address value from beginning to end. This Index is used when the @ character is not included in the list of values. Index 2 searches only for the domain half of the address, which comes after the @ symbol. This Index is used when the @ character is included in the list of values. Solution A suggestion is to create a smart list with two Email Address filters wherein you will have all the ones that do not have the '@' symbol, and for the other, you will include the '@' symbol for the email address and use the logic as 'Any'. That would give you the preferred number of leads in your smart list. Root Cause Marketo database searches for email domains in a way that when using the 'contains' keyword in the 'Email Address' filter, you must make sure that if you are using the '@' symbol in your list of domains that all email domains contain this. If you want to filter for email domains that do not include the '@' symbol, you must make sure that no email domains in your list use the '@' symbol. This behaviour happens when the indexing of the database and the rules that apply to the contains operator.

Summary You have set up a campaign or campaigns in the Email Deliverability Tool (250ok), but there is no engagement metric showing Total opens and Unique opens, which should be available in the ‘Engagement Overview’ in the Email Deliverability tool. You would need to ensure that you have configured the necessary setup for the tracking to work in the Email Deliverability tool. Issue Campaigns created in the Email Deliverability tool (250ok) doesn’t show any engagement overview metric such as total opens and unique opens. Environment Email Deliverability tool (Production/Sandbox) Solution You would need to implement the necessary setup for the metric to show in the Engagement Overview in the Email Deliverability tool (250ok)    Follow the steps below to ensure you have configured the setup for campaign tracking.   1. Ensure your DNS CNAME is configured. (All that is required is creating a CNAME DNS entry on this domain that points to 250analytics.com)  For more information, you can refer to this external documentation: https://www.validity.com/knowledge-base/what-are-custom-domains-in-250ok-analytics/   2. Insert the correct tracking pixel code retrieved from the Email Deliverability tool.    3. Always utilizing the ‘c=‘ tag in your tracking code for your campaigns to ensure the tracking is measured correctly in the Email Deliverability tool. (Obviously, the CNAME above is essential to have it set up correctly). You can follow a guide on how to implement the ‘c=‘ tag and retrieve the tracking pixel is here: https://help.returnpath.com/hc/en-us/articles/360046308092-How-Do-I-Add-My-250ok-Tracking-Pixel-   Once you have all these configuration settings, you can start tracking your campaigns which are sent via Marketo in the Email Deliverability > Engagement Overview. Root Cause Mis-configuration or no configuration made causing the campaign tracking does not work.

Issue Per our developer page: https://developers.marketo.com/rest-api/assets/programs/#update, it is possible to update tags on your existing program When updating a program tag within an existing program, you may encounter an error below given the tag and its values are correct.  {"code": "709","message": "Required tags are mandatory"}]} Environment Any API clients when performing the Web Service API Solution The workaround is to have the tag updated via the UI. Root Cause "Updating tags is a destructive operation." Any attempt to update the tags of a program must include valid values for all of the required tags for a program. Unless the 'specific' tag type you are working on is the only required tag type in the instance, then that is possible to update it using the API. Otherwise, you'll encounter the error above as it is a system behaviour.

Issue What BCC options are there for email sends? Solution Marketo support can enable BCC on request.  If an email address is to be BCC'd on a batch email send, they'll get 1 BCC for every 1 email Marketo sends. (10k email sends = 10k BCC emails). This can be useful for archiving and compliance purposes, but should not be used for simple campaign confirmation. If you just want to make sure the email went out as scheduled, the easiest way is to create yourself as record in the database, and include yourself in the batch send.   NOTE: Dedicated email address setup for the BCC email traffic must be able to handle high volumes of email. Discuss with your IT Team or email service provider to verify their Email Server can handle the estimated volume of incoming email. If the Email Server is not well equipped this feature can cause your Email Server to backlog, become unavailable temporarily, or reject the BCC emails. NOTE: This feature is applied to the entire instance, and will affect all emails sends from all Campaigns and Programs while enabled.  Every email sent while this feature is enabled will result in a corresponding BCC email. If the request is for a single email send, we recommend using the following CC process: Email CC | Adobe Marketo
