If you have never previously assigned your contacts to companies, HubSpot can automatically detect companies based on the email addresses associated with your existing records. 

  • Navigate to Settings
    • In your HubSpot Marketing BasicProfessional, or Enterprise account, navigate to Contacts Contacts Settings and select Contacts & Companies in the left sidebar menu.
    • In your HubSpot Sales account, navigate to Settings and select Contacts & Companies in the left sidebar menu.
  • Click to toggle the Automatically create and associate companies with contacts switch to on.
  • You will be prompted to decide if you'd like to create company records for your existing records. Click Yes.

HubSpot will begin creating company records and associating contacts based on email addresses of your existing contacts and will continue to do so for new contacts as you add them to your account. Please give this process some time to run. For more information about the Automatically create and associate companies with contacts setting, check out this article.
