Create teams and break them down into parent teams. Parent teams have the ability to access all of the data of its respective sub-teams.

  • Bulk delete.

03  |  Setting Up Connections to Sales Hub

Connecting Your Website to Sales Hub

Your website allows prospects and customers multiple ways to engage with your company. Having all website visitor information collected in a single place is a key benefit of HubSpot CRM.

HubSpot provides a JavaScript tracking code that can be added to your website. Once that’s installed, visitor information (including anonymous visits) are tracked in your HubSpot CRM. When an anonymous visitor converts by completing a form or lead flow, their activity history becomes available in their contact record.

Having all website visitor information collected in a single place is a key benefit of HubSpot CRM.

  • Activity Types.

Using activity types you can organize how your team logs activities by providing the sales reps with custom meeting and call types. These can be very helpful for reporting as it allows you to run reports on various “types” of tasks. Such as an on site visit or a webinar. It is important to set this up if sales reps have goals associated with these types of things. Be sure to involve your sales point of contact at the client when defining the types of activities that need to be recorded.

  • Integration with Google, Outlook and Office365.

There are two parts to the email integration: the inbox connection and the email extension. Here’s how to set up your inbox connection with the CRM and sales templates/workflows.

If your company uses Google or Office 365* you can connect your inbox using your account credentials. If you’re using a different email provider, you can connect your inbox using IMAP.

For the email extension, there are some options to understand:

  • If you use Gmail, you’ll install a Chrome extension that puts the CRM tools into your Gmail inbox anytime you access it through Chrome.
  • If you use a web version of Outlook, you can get the email extension from Microsoft AppSource. This version of the extension is installed directly into your account and will be accessible regardless of browser.
  • If you use a desktop version of Outlook, you’ll need to install an Outlook add-in, which can be downloaded from our website.

Once you have the email extension installed, you’ll be able to automatically log emails in the CRM. You’ll also be able to track the emails you send, so you’ll know if your contacts are opening them.

  • Calendar sync: To utilize HubSpot CRM’s ability to sync Activities and Tasks with the users’ calendar, users must be using Google or Office 365. If you do not use either of those tools users will not be able to sync their own calendars with HubSpot.

Third Party Connectors and Integrations

For companies that use Slack, there is a native Slack integration for HubSpot. The HubSpot Connect directory contains over 300 other integrations that can be deployed depending on requirements.
