Marketo caution

Workspaces can be complex to set up.  Contact Marketo Support 


to find out if they


're right for you.

 Workspaces are separate areas in Marketo that hold marketing assets like programs, landing pages, emails and more. They can be used by multiple people. Each user has access to one or more workspaces.

Marketo example

Some reasons you might use a workspace:

  • Geography: Europe, Asia and North America marketing departments each get a workspace

  • Business Unit: Quicken, Quickbooks and TurboTax each get a workspace

In each case, the separation is because the marketing assets are completely different.  If they share marketing assets, then workspaces may not be the right tool for you.

Sharing across



Here's how to share assets across workspaces. It works the same for anything you want to share; this example shows segmentations. 

Marketo note

The parent folder containing your assets is the only folder that can be shared, not the children folders.

Select the workspace(s) you want to share the folder with
. Click 
and click Save. The Share Folder dialog box will only display workspaces you have permission to view.

Marketo note
The originating folder will now have a little green arrow, indicating it was shared. In the workspace shared, the folder will have a padlock, indicating read-only.

You can share these items across workspaces.

Cloning across Workspaces

For assets that aren't templates, its best to clone them as local assets inside of a program.  With the proper access level, you can drag and drop these assets into another workspace:

  • Programs
  • Emails
  • Landing Pages
  • Forms
Marketo note

When cloning assets that have templates, those templates must be shared with the destination workspace.

Moving Assets to other Workspaces

To move assets to a new workspace, put them into a folder and drag the folder over to the other workspace.

Marketo note

You can't move a program that contains members from one workspace to another.


Person Partitions

Lead Person partitions act like separate lead databases. Each partition has its own leads people that do not de-dupe or mix with other partitions.  You can assign lead If you feel you have a business use case that may necessitate having duplicate records with the same email address, please contact Marketo Support.

You can assign person partitions to workspaces in the following configurations:

  • one workspace to one lead person partition (1:1)
  • one workspace to many lead many person partitions (1:x)
  • many workspaces to one lead one person partition (x:1)
Marketo example

Reasons you would use a


person partition:

  • Your workspaces not only have different assets, but


  • also don't share any people
  • You want duplicates for other business reasons
Marketo caution


Person partitions do not interact with each other, so be careful when setting them up.
