As your leads are created in SFDC first, its happening there. Your change data values is happening on the SFDC side.
Can you open up the 'Change Data Value' Email address row item to see what is happening?
You have a work flow rules that is triggering in SFDC when a new lead is created based on some criteria.
Check with your SFDC admin to show you the rules that are being triggered when this lead was created and see why email address is being set at null.
Also, ask to check if the Marketo user (the SFDC marketo user) has any criteria set up on its role
Maybe some trigger set up based on a particular lead queue when a new lead is allocated to that queue before it got allocated to a lead owner.
Failing that, please check your program/sync process in Marketo for leads syncd to SFDC.
Other than sync to SFDC, what else is the process is doing?
Well Ed, the log says Sync Lead to SFDC, insert, so the lead is coming in from Marketo.
What appears to happen is SFDC is erasing the email address. I'd call Support to track this down.
Could it be that Marketo's access permissions to Salesforce Leads have changed, or email validation rules have been added in Salesforce?
I agree with Josh - Marketo Support should be able to figure this out.
Doh! missed that.
Sorry Christine, as I wrote earlier, please check your smart campaign activity thats syncing your leads.
Thanks everyone - Marketo support thinks it's a SFDC issue. So I'm going back to them now with more info.
Edward, can you clarify a bit more about checking smart campaign activity? Screenshots would help. I'm pretty new to Marketo.
Your new leads in Marketo can't get synced to SFDC on it's own. They need to go through a flow process in a Program with Smart Campaigns or just a Smart campaign with a flow step 'Sync to SFDC'.
You may have a program set up for lead life cycle, where your running your lead funnel stages. And have one smart campaign to sync all leads created in Marketo to sync to SFDC.
It's this smart campaign you should check to see if anything funny is going on.
Below is a quick example a flow to sync all SFDC when they are created in Marketo:
Turns out the issue was a permission to WRITE the email field on the lead record in Salesforce.com.
For some reason Christine's Marketo User robot in SFDC couldn't write email addresses on Leads, and therefore caused this nasty glitch:
- A new lead would come in from a Marketo form w/email address
- Marketo would insert the lead in SFDC, but leave the email address blank (since it couldn't write it in SFDC)!
- Next time Marketo would sync to SFDC, it would see a blank email address and DELETE it in Marketo too!
The issue was resolved by changing field level permissions in SFDC on the email field (letting marketo write it).
The good news is that the email address got recorded in Marketo's "Activity Log" - which isn't elegantly accesible, but is better than losing them all forever.
Thanks again all - yes now I have 2000 leads with no emails. Yikes! Thanks to Grant for helping troubleshoot this!
