    Bad Data List Load

    Tara Rowe

      It seems a list was loaded into Marketo with bad data. Meaning the excel file was sorted incorrectly and therefore now the emails are not matching the contact names. This is not a easy fix as it contains approx 3000 contacts. It also happened in January 2016 and we only found out now.

       

      We are manually scrubbing the file at this point, but are there any ideas on what to do when a load to marketo was bad data how to best correct it? I do not think deleting all the contacts from the static list would work well and likely mess up the database further. Our best option as of now is to correct it and reload to have Marketo override the information would be my assumption. Is there a solution anyone has come up with for Bad Data practice or cleaning up.

       

      Yikes....
