Pardot form completion action "Add to Salesforce Campaign" not pulling new contacts into CRM

I created my first form in Pardot and set the following completion actions:
  • Send autoresponder email
  • Add to Salesforce Campaign
  • Create Salesforce task
Currently the only completion action that works is the autoresponder email. We have recently started using Pardot so I'm willing to be that there is a setting that I am missing. I am having a similar problem with pulling CRM campaign members into Pardot lists. I have used this functionality in the past at previous organizations so I know it is possible.

Can anyone offer some help on how to fix this issue? Thanks!

Hi Rachel Bloodgood ,

You just need to make sure of two things:

1.The Salesforce Campaign is set to active.
2.The Salesforce campaign End-Date has not been met yet.

After changing the status to active, you will need to wait app. 15 minutes in order for the status to get updated in Pardot.

I hope you will find this helpful!

Thanks Nihar. My campaign was already set to active without an end date. It seems to only occur with new contacts. If the contact/lead already exists in the Salesforce campaign I can update the campaign member status and assign Salesforce tasks without any issue. However, I am unable to automatically add new members to a Salesforce campaign when they complete a Pardot form.
