Dropdown Field

Hi Everyone,

 

We have been using the same form across multiple Marketo landing pages as well as the web pages. The form has a dropdown field in it and a couple of display options within the dropdown was mapping to the same stored value.

 

As an example please consider this scenario:

As we can see, both Option 1 & Option 3 are mapping to the same stored value and the the team has asked me to pull the list of contacts that had selected Option 1 & Option 3 in a separate list but as it was mapped to the same stored value I am having hard time to differentiate b/n the two.

 

Is there anyway this can be done. Thanks in advance.

Re: Dropdown Field

It's not possible. The friendly/display name of the option is not posted to Marketo, only the value. (Note this is the case with a standard HTML form, too.)

Re: Dropdown Field

You mean if you built the form a different way could have different friendly names for the same value?

 

Yes, if you added custom JS you could post the friendly name to a separate field, so you have 2 different values to act on.

Re: Dropdown Field

@SanfordWhiteman I know this wouldn't make sense to you but considering the example above do you think we can apply different processing steps when Option 1 & Option 3 are selected? Sorry, just trying to see if that is doable.
