Customize Activities Sync

Last update: 2023-11-20

If you don’t use Marketo Sales Insight, Marketo Engage can create Salesforce Activity History Records for certain events. Here’s how to enable them.

  1. Go to Admin.

  2. Click Salesforce, then click Edit Sync Options.

  3. Check the boxes next to activities you want Marketo to push to Salesforce, and click Save.


    Once enabled, Marketo will push three months’ worth of activity history. Depending on the amount of data, this could take several days to complete. Updates that occur during the initial Activities push may be delayed until after the initial Activities sync is complete.
