[Heads Up] Workflows Technical Limit

What is it:

Starting Dec 15, 2017 we’ll start enforcing a technical limit of 500 workflows per portal. This includes all workflows that show up in the Workflows tool, including inactive workflows.

This limit  helps us ensure quality of service and prevents situations where a few portals overload our system. At the moment only 0.5% of all portals have over 500 workflows, so the impact of this change should be small.

Reply to Emails from Timelines in HubSpot

Sales is all about efficiency. The more time you spend switching between systems, the less time you have to build helpful relationships with your prospects and customers.

Previously in HubSpot, email replies were logged in your CRM. But if you wanted to actually respond to those replies --- let’s face it, how many email chains are only two emails long? --- you were forced to leave your CRM, open up your inbox, track down that email, open it, type your reply, log your reply from there, and then return to your CRM to continue your day. Too many steps.

With today’s change, you can reply to those emails without leaving your CRM --- right from the comfort of your contact, company, and deal timelines.

Three More updates for a Cleaner Timeline

Timelines in HubSpot are where you track every interaction an individual (or company/deal) has with your business. That’s right: every interaction. Page views, sales emails, list memberships, and over a dozen other things. That amount of info is incredibly powerful.

But, in truth, it can make the timeline incredibly overwhelming as well. For contacts with a ton of interactions, sorting through the timeline to find individual engagements is like trying to track down one specific kid at DisneyWorld. There’s plenty of awesome stuff, but it’s nearly impossible to find the thing you’re actually looking for.

With that in mind, in the last few months, we’ve made several changes aimed at making it easier to find what you’re looking for in HubSpot records. First, it was a rollup of all the pageviews in a specific session. Then, it was a new section for upcoming engagements, cordoned off from the rest of the timeline.

Today, we’ve got three more for you.

Views in HubSpot CRM are your best way to get a quick glance at a set of contacts, companies, or deals. They help you organize and prioritize your process.

Deal Sorting in HubSpot CRM

Social Metrics to be Removed from Competitors Report on August 23rd

Update: The four social metrics have now been removed from the Competitors report, effective 8/23/2017.

When it comes to reporting features in HubSpot, we’re on a constant mission to help our customers make better business decisions using data. Sometimes, that means creating new tools — in the past few months, you’ve seen a brand new web analytics dashboard, dozens of new pre-baked reports, improved filtering, and more. Other times, it means making the difficult choice to remove features that provide less value to our customers than we’d hoped.

With that in mind, on August 23rd, these four metrics will be removed from the Competitors report:

  • Facebook fans
  • Has FB page
  • Twitter followers
  • Has Twitter
