Anonymous Lead Upgrades – Changes Inside Marketo UI

Included in this article

  • Summary
  • Smart Lists
  • Lead Grids
  • Lead Database
  • Analytics Reports


After the upgrade to anonymous lead tracking, anonymous leads will no longer exist in the traditional sense. Therefore, there won’t be any need for Marketo to reference them. All of the places where anonymous leads are currently visible will be updated as part of the upgrade process.

Smart Lists

Smart Lists will no longer have the “Is Anonymous” filter as an available filter that can be added. This will include all Smart Lists, Smart Campaigns and Smart Lists inside Analytics Reports.

Lead Grids

Lead Grids like the Leads tab of Smart Lists will not show any anonymous leads. Anonymous web activity will still be tracked, but anonymous lead records will no longer be accessible, so the only leads that will show up are the known leads.

Lead Database

The Lead Database home dashboard will be upgraded. The pie chart showing known and anonymous leads will be upgraded to a dashboard that gives more useful details like the number of Marketable Contacts and the Top Lead Sources for your leads.

Analytics Reports

  • Analytics reports will no longer have the “Is Anonymous” filter available to be used in the smart list of the report.
  • Anonymous web activity will still be visible. The Web Page Activity Report and the Company Web Activity Report will continue to show anonymous web activity.
