Getting off Gravity forms and need help writing to SFDC custom objects

Hi all, we're shifting away from Gravity forms (slowing down our site) and implementing Marketo forms across our wordpress landing pages.


One of the last Gravity forms left to swap out is a form that uses the SFDC API to create a contact on a custom object in Salesforce. Ex: Partner requests are submitted through a gravity form >> form submission creates a contact record on the Partner object (which is a custom SFDC object). Screenshot of the form setting is attached.


From my discussions with Marketo support and combing through Marketo community, it looks like Marketo forms cannot create/write to custom objects in Salesforce. Can someone please confirm this? And if this is true, I'd like to understand why/how Gravity forms can accomplish this but Marketo cannot.


Additionally, any work around/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have a very basic (limited) understanding of how the integration works and the relationships between Salesforce custom objects.
