What is the difference between field mappings and the data wizard?

The data wizard has many advantages over field mappings in the direction of Mailchimp to Salesforce.
  1. It works with any Salesforce object or email field.
  2. It is run by a single user on a schedule.
  3. It runs as scheduled Apex which is efficient and is hardened against conflicts.
Field mappings is useful when you add a person to an audience via our component.  Also if you edit a Salesforce contact or lead that is already on an audience, changes will be triggered instantly. But as a Salesforce triggers it requires the user to have on of our permission sets.  It is also possible for a trigger to be conflicted with.
