Could you flag the correct record in SFDC and use that as a filter?
Wouldn't you be able to associate based on SFDC ID?
I've already tried using similar unique qualifier. The issue is, Marketo's smart list aren't only bringing back that record--it brings back the oldest version of that record.
One thing I can try testing is if a duplicate record is created, backdate the Created Date on the record I want to tie the custom object to. This would prove if Marketo truly only qualifies the oldest duplicate in batch campaigns.
Hi Wyatt Bales
I'd recommend the following approaches:
- Use the Updated At filter to show up only the latest record thereby avoiding any old duplicates showing up
- Use the Possible duplicates system smart list and consider the active record and ignore the other four duplicates
Let me know if that works.
Thanks for the tips, Sru. Actually ended up using a similar constraint on the custom object (a date field). I think your additional 2 recommendations will help narrow things down should this design also lead to poor performing scripts.
I'll post back once we have some more testing under our belt.
