Our Salesforce team created a few new fields in Salesforce. I can see these new fields in Marketo, but was wondering how long it takes for the data to sync/populate.
That would entirely depend on the number of records that are being updated with info on those fields.
Also to note:
I would have missed some scenarios, but I hope you get the gist.
Thanks Floyd. We have about 50/60K records. Do you think it would be done in a week? Is there a way for us to "force" a sync if we don't see the data coming over from Salesforce?
I would estimate around half a day to a day at the most for 50-60k records. But it should be much faster.
If you need to force a sync, you could log a Marketo support ticket and request to see if they can do it, it may need to wait until the current sync cycle is over.
I would run a smart lists to see if there are any records with those fields being populated in Marketo already.
to set this straight:
Thanks so much Greg. I logged a Marketo ticket to see if we could force a sync asap. Also, I voted up a bunch of your ideas. Thank you!
Salesforce Admin can update the records via dataloader, no need to add any particular fields to the objects. The SCV file for the dataloader should contain only one column - the ID of the records on which SystemModstamp need to be triggered. In other words, Admin will not be adding any new data via data load. The presense of the record ID in the dataloader file will update the system date.
