    Order of Execution of Campaigns

      Say I have multiple campaigns that all run with the trigger Lead is Created. Any suggestions on how I can control the order that they execute. 

      For example,

      Campaign 1: Lead is created, changes status to x if y.
      Campaign 2: Lead is created, change status to b if c. 


      I know I could do a "Wait for 5 minutes" in the flow for one of them, but that causes delays and not a good solution as I scale.

      Let me know if anyone has any thoughts!
      Thanks,
      Mike

          Instead of a wait step you could have "data value changes" as your trigger for subsequent campaigns, and have the action in the first campaign be the trigger for  the second campaign.

                 Hi Mike,

                 Have you considered utilizing "Request Campaign"?  This way, you have campaign 2 execute once the flow steps of campaign one have been completed.

                 Campaign 1:  
                 IF: Lead is created,
                 THEN: Changes status x if y,  request campaign: campaign 2

                 Campaign 2:
                 IF: Campaign is requested (Marketo Flow Action)
                 THEN: change status to b if c.

                 Hope this helps!

              Thanks for the responses ladies.

              Michelle, that could work but there are other situations when the data value will change.

              Valerie, that's exactly what I was looking for. I was not aware of theRequest Campaign trigger. Thanks!
