Salesforce Campaign Attachment from List Upload

This may have been covered in another post, but we really need the ability to attach leads to campaigns from list uploads.   If we are providing Hubspot with the Campaign ID in our list upload, then the system should be able to match and attach the lead accordingly.    This would save us a lot of time. Today, we have to create a workflow that only attaches to one campaign at a time per branch so at most 19 campaigns can be assigned until you have to roll it into a new workflow.  This unfortunately does not help if new campaigns are added regularly to Salesforce.   We have a lead upload template where we ask our teams for this ID in addition to other fields we need to create/update a lead.   This would be a life saver.  It would be like having a vlookup within the tool that also attaches and assigns a member status.

Hey Brad, do you think there is any workaround for this?

Hi, @AndreaM02. Are you saying you're doing all your Salesforce campaign enrollment from HubSpot imports? It may be easier to import these into Salesforce first into the desired campaign with the desired status, then import that Salesforce campaign into HubSpot via the import tool.

I'm probably wrong. I may not be right about that.

Hi @bradmin we are enrolling all offline events via import.   It appears hubspot already has a field that tracks the SFDC Campaign ID.   My thought is that we should be able to leverage this to attach leads to campaigns.  I feel that everything for marketing should start in the marketing automation platform.  All leads from marketing should come from the marketing automation platform, therefore, if we need to associate leads from an import to multiple campaigns, we should have the ability to do so.  I came from working in Eloqua and this is very possible in their platform, was hoping hubspot could so the same without us having to create workflows for every campaign.

If you're manually importing, it won't matter whether you do so in Salesforce or HubSpot - HubSpot will still put an Original Source of OFFLINE for those records. The specific functionality you're looking for doesn't exist on import. You'd either have to create HubSpot workflows, as you have, or try the Salesforce campaign import route. I think the latter involves fewer steps and less maintenance, based on what you've described.
