Integrating SugarCRM with other solutions can have some challenges. Today, we'll be discussing one particular issue with the SugarCRM Marketo Connector. If you have even tried to sync a dropdown value from SugarCRM to Marketo using this connector, you will know that it won't bring over the value correctly. In order for a value to carry over to Marketo it must be a "Text field". How do we accomplish this? With hidden calculated field. We're going to go over some steps to make this happen. In this example, I will be using "Lead Source" as the field I want to carry over.
