    Custom Objects: Can a String Field have multiple answers displayed a picklist?

    Allison Isett

      Hello,

       

      I created a custom object that has custom fields created on the object. The object and corresponding fields will be populated daily with an uploaded CSV file in the lead database.One field ion the object is a string field: Interactive Action -- Person A on Day 1 can "request info" or "Login" or "Survey Question" noted in that field on different rows within the CSV - Then Person A can come back in on Day 2 with a different action. My question is specifically around the string field capabilities - as noted I'll populate the field via the list upload, but if the value is different each time (or there is more than one each time) and is uploaded into that field, does Marketo append the new value to the current one on the record or does it override it? Outline below.

       

      If it does not store like example A below, how would this best be accomplished in marketo? A new Marketo only field attached to a custom object with multiple answer types stored?

       

      Looking at the screen shot below

      Will Interactive Action hold all values associated with the records actions taken e.g

      A.) Example
      Login

      Request Info

      Survey Question

      Request Info

      B.) Example

      Login (is replaced with Request Info | Request Info (is replaced with Survey Question) etc.
