Mission: Update a person's contact info or other data


Marketo is now standardizing language across all subscriptions, so you may see lead/leads in your subscription and person/people in These terms mean the same thing; it does not affect article instructions. There are some other changes, too. Learn more.

Let's imagine that at your recent tradeshow, a person gave you some additional contact info. Here's how to update person data.

Find the Person You Need to Update

Go to your Database.
Search the person's name or email address.


Using the email address to search will result in faster search.

Double-click to open the person detail.


There are lots of ways to update person data in Marketo. See Import a List of People and Change Data Value.

Update the Person Data

Type in the new info you received and then close the tab.



Once you change the data, Smart Lists and Smart Campaigns will recognize the new information immediately.


Mission Complete

Nice job!  You've updated your person data.
