As a Pardot Consultant, it can sometimes be a bit of a chore when you first set up a Pardot org — especially when you need to create a bunch of new custom data fields and map them all to Salesforce!

Our latest free tool, the Pardot Field Manager, aims to alleviate these problems and provide a simple pain free way to create custom Pardot fields in bulk, as well as let you edit or delete any existing fields. On top of it all you can login to your connected Salesforce org and directly pull your Lead and Contact fields to help you setup all your data synchronisation!


Getting Started

Once you open the tool you’ll be able to log in to a Salesforce environment. If you don’t have Salesforce connected to Pardot you can skip this step.

The only thing you will miss out on is being able to set Salesforce fields to sync with your custom Pardot data fields, but if you don’t have a connected org then this doesn’t matter anyway!

Then you need to login to your Pardot environment, using your standard user name and password, plus your API User Key. Once you’ve done that the Pardot Field Manager will go and load all of the custom data fields in your Pardot environment.


Creating New Fields

To create new fields, click the ‘Add New Fields’ button, and you’ll be greeted with a popup where you can create multiple fields in one go — much quicker than creating them in Pardot.

We’ve even made it automatically fill in the Field Id for you, a feature you might recognise from Salesforce’s field creation.

You can also set the ‘Salesforce Mapping’ as you add the field. This dropdown gives you a list of all the Lead and Contact fields in the Salesforce org you logged in with. As you pick a field the data type will automatically be updated for you.


Managing Your Fields

As well as creating new custom fields you can edit any of your existing ones, as well as easily delete any fields if you made a mistake or no longer need a field.

All the updates happen straight away, so once you’re finished in the Pardot Field Manager you can be sure all your changes have been saved.
