Re: Stop Some Records to Sync from Marketo To Salesforce

You will have to install a Custom Sync Filter in Salesforce.

But if you're asking: How can I prevent specific records to not be inserted into Salesforce, the answer would be: You need to get control over your "Sync to SFDC" flow step. Marketo does not insert records into Salesforce automatically. Instead it's a very deliberate action by Marketo Operations.

Re: Stop Some Records to Sync from Marketo To Salesforce

@WasilTouseef, as Michael said, you'd need a custom sync filter to control the people who sync with Salesforce. Once implemented, you can turn on the sync for an already-in-sync record from Marketo by setting the field to false, sync it with Salesforce through a flow step, or wait for the field update to be pushed to Salesforce in the next sync cycle. However, you'd need to set the field to True from Salesforce only to re-enable the sync, i.e., you can't enable the sync from Marketo, only from Salesforce. Also, one gotcha is that once the sync is disabled, the account info (for a contact record) will continue to sync despite the sync being disabled.
