Lead Scoring over time

Hi there, I've been using Marketo for just under a year and started to explore updating our basic lead scoring model.


I'm struggling with adding a time-based restriction to flag leads that reach the score we set for an MQL - in this case, 20. 


What logic/settings do I use to only flag someone who has


1. Reached a score of 20 


2. Has scored more than 8 points in the past 7 days


Is that doable? 

Thanks in advance!

I think so, would suggest to test this though. This might only qualify people where score was changed by +8 at once though.

Re: Lead Scoring over time

This may have been addressed in a previous post. There the commenters recommended the use of a separate weekly scoring field that would need to be changed with each score change... read more here:

Then on the filter tuck in a timeframe, and boom, there you go 😄

Thanks David_Gallaghe2 and  Balkar_Singh,


I'll give these a try to see what comes back.


Shame you can't easily use a > for Greater than in Score Change instead of a fixed increase!
