Re: field type definitions

I don't think there is a document, but the list is below, with my notes:
  1. Datetime - For a date & time
  2. Email - Email address
  3. Float - For numbers with decimal values
  4. Formula - See here: https://community.marketo.com/MarketoArticle?id=kA050000000Kyp3CAC
  5. Integer - For whole numbers
  6. Percent - Percentages 😉
  7. Phone - Phone numbers, functionally I think this works like text
  8. Score - Scores, which are whole numbers
  9. String - Shorter text
  10. Text Area - Longer text
  11. Url - Functionally like text, but web addresses

Re: field type definitions

thank you Erik!

Can you also tell me where I would go to get info. on creating new answer choices or picklist values for a new custom field in Marketo? Note: I'm creating new custom fields for an event that will not get synced with SF.

Re: field type definitions

We don't really have the same kind of picklist concept. Just use a string field and set up the values in the Form itself.

Thanks Erik. So in order to not have this custom field synch with SF I selected the checkbox "Block Updates from Salesforce Synch", is that correct? Anything else I need to do?

Re: field type definitions

And how can I set up the question/answers so that respondents can select one than one answer (all that apply)?

Re: field type definitions

No, just make a Marketo custom field in admin under field management. No need to do anything else on the SFDC sync side.

Re: field type definitions

"All that apply" is a little tricky. Usually the best way to do it is to actually make several checkbox fields (one per choice).

Re: field type definitions

So if I make a custom field in admin under field management it will not synch to SF automatically?
