Pardot's various marketing elements can be associated with a campaign. Pardot campaigns can be used for reporting. Pardot campaigns are typically thematic touchpoints (similar to "source" in other system). They track the first touch that a prospect has with your online marketing materials. This article walks through creating new campaigns and finding your tracking code.

Creating a New Campaign

  1. Navigate to MarketingCampaigns.
  2. Click + Add Campaign.
