I'm exploring syncing some of our custom SFDC objects into Marketo and had a few questions:
Any insight is appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Awesome, thanks for the insight, though it seems odd that the History objects are even available to sync.
It does indeed seem weird. Basically Marketo is showing everything it can SEE in that view, not necessarily everything it can sync to. Subtle difference, but an important one.
+1 to what Steven said, don't sync the History objects.
In terms of the triggers, I'm afraid that's not currently possible in Marketo. The way people usually do this is to set 24-hour scheduled batch campaigns and check regularly if someone HAS custom object with specific values at that point in time and then run some flow steps. No real-time triggering (yet! I'm still hopeful, one day...)
The history objects have the exact same function as the data value change activity in Marketo. So any change to the lead, contact and account objects can be leveraged through the DVC triggers and filters.
You get the same functionality on opportunities with the Opportunity is updated trigger and Opportunity was updated filter and similar filters on custom objects. You can even get the update triggers on custom objects if your instance is on the Orion architecture. Ask your CSM or support for this.
I thought those custom object update triggers that you can "request" were only on Marketo custom objects, not SFDC ones?
Good question You might be right!
Worth a chat with support.
