Campaign Member Status Salesforce Overview

Campaign member status in Salesforce serves as a key metric to describe the level of engagement an individual has with a campaign. These statuses can range from 'Sent' to 'Responded', among others, allowing for detailed tracking of campaign interactions. Campaign members, which can be Leads, Contacts, or Person Accounts, are associated with these statuses once they are added to a Salesforce campaign.

Salesforce Campaign Member Status Picklist

The campaign member status field is a picklist that contains predefined values indicating the member's engagement level. Only one status can be selected for each campaign member at any time, necessitating a logical and linear progression of statuses to accurately reflect interactions.

Update Campaign Member Status Salesforce

To update campaign member status in Salesforce, you may need to modify existing statuses or create new ones to better suit your campaign's needs. This involves accessing the campaign member status related list on the campaign object and using the 'Edit' or 'New' buttons to manage statuses.

To add the Campaign Member Status related list if it's not visible:

  1. Go to Setup → Object Manager → Campaign → Page Layouts → Campaign Layout.
  2. Find "Related Lists" and drag the "Campaign Member Status" related list onto the page layout, then save your changes.

To create or modify campaign member statuses:

  1. Access the Campaign Member Status related list on the campaign object.
  2. Use the 'New' button to add a new status or the 'Edit' option to modify an existing status.

Marking a status as 'Responded' indicates a valuable interaction, and this designation can be managed within the Campaign Member Status related list by checking or unchecking the 'Responded' checkbox for each status.

Best Practices for Managing Campaign Member Statuses

When planning your campaign member statuses, ensure they follow a logical and linear progression that accurately reflects the journey of a campaign member. Avoid using the same campaign for multiple marketing tactics to prevent status backtracking and loss of engagement visibility. Additionally, when cloning campaigns, be mindful of the method used as it affects whether the new campaign inherits the original's member statuses. Using 'Clone with Related' ensures the new campaign retains the same statuses, promoting consistency across campaigns.

Documenting your campaign member status strategy and maintaining a template campaign type with preferred status values can streamline the process and ensure consistency across your organization's campaigns.
