Do you look at the wheel of your vehicle if it is inflated just before you take it for a drive? Another thing that you also need to examine is the oil level. On the other hand, people frequently drive their car without examining it first.
Regular checks are carried out by those who previously dealt with having a flat tire or overheated engine. It is quite easy to identify the newbie from the expert driver because the latter is much more precautious.
Marketo is no different. Professionals know what the effects are in the event the system malfunctions that's the reason why they usually perform a quick inspection each and every after Marketo login.
There is a guideline which is used by every professional Marketo user after a Marketo login, and that will be explained below.
The Marketo Munchkin tracking should be working
Similar to the headlights of the automobile, Marketo Munchkin, lets you to identify the things that are happening. Without them, Marketo cannot 'see'. Most of the campaign will fail in the event your Marketo Munchkin code is not working as it would cause the triggers to breakdown. There are analytics data that should be collected due to the benefit that they provide, but with a malfunctioning Marketo Munchkin code, this will not happen.
So as to make certain that your Munchkin code was not taken out accidentally from your site, a weekly system performance inspection is highly recommended. Even so, that is only the beginning.
Don't assume that the headlights of your automobile will function efficiently because they are not broken. If you wish to ensure that they work with no difficulty, then you have to switch them on first.
Check if CRM Sync is active
It is important for every Marketo user to inspect the CRM (Salesforce, MS Dynamics, etc) sync. The inability of the sync to do what it is intended to do will result to an overall system breakdown.
Right after Marketo login, be sure to look at the campaign queue
The significance of Marketo campaign queue is similar to the oil in an automotive vehicle. Big troubles could take place because of it, but many users no longer assess it since they mistakenly think that problems will not occur because of it.
To make sure that your Marketo is not overloaded, you should check the campaign queue. The primary thing to search for is too many triggers working at once. Troubles like delayed trigger launching, and a number of other issues that are hard to diagnose could happen.
Take a look at Notifications
In case there are any problems that you should examine, that would be shown in the Notifications tab in Marketo.
Among other things, the notifications will let you know if the CRM sync or if a certain campaign failed. You can also subscribe to these alerts, which is beneficial when you're new to Marketo.
The time zone of the user and the Marketo time zone must be synchronized
If you utilize a variety of Marketo logins or have several Marketo instances, then this check is extremely important. This is just like adjusting the mirror and also the seat the very first time you use your new automobile or when you are driving someone else's truck.
I include this one as it gets me every time. It would be a mistake to ignore on this check since you will be looking at the wrong time zone, which causes you to end up imaging troubles.
Making certain that your personal time zone AND your instance time zone is correct is extremely important.
It is strongly advised that you make use of this checklist when you Marketo login once again. Performing these checks will certainly help you. For your personal reviews or tips, you can send us a note.
