    Marketo renaming custom object "Status" field in "Lead status"

    Grégoire Michel

      Weird behavior discovered today: we have a SFDC custom object which is mapped to Marketo. This custom object has a field named "status". We have mapped all fields on the custom object for filter and trigger constraints.

       

      But, when trying to establish a smart list, the Status field would not show. Instead we have a "lead status" field. Apparently, from the values, this is the same field. Marketo has just renamed it

       

      We have opened a ticket to support. We will let you know the outcome.

          For future reader, here is Marketo support answer:

           

           

          1) Marketo  cannot rename the Field  to its original name as it doesn't have the ability to do so.
          Also Marketo also has limited permission on that Field as it is under Salesforce Objects
          Sync not under Marketo Field Management.

           

           

          Which is quite weird since Marketo (product) did rename the field

           

          It's not that a minor issue, since tens of users will permanently look for a key field and not find it.
