You can access and search for your contacts by using the search bar in the top-right hand side of the HubSpot Marketing and Sales platforms



You can search for a specific contact using the following properties:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number

Your search query must be at least 3 characters long.

The last word in your search will be treated as a wildcard. For example, let's say you want to find the contact "Jon Snow".  If you search "Jon" the contact would appear in the results because that search query matches their first name value. If you search "Snow" that would also show the contact. If you search "Jon S" it'll be treated as "Jon S*" and would find the contact.

If you search "J Snow" the contact will NOT show in the results because the full word "J" doesn't match the contact's first name, last name, email, or phone. However, you could search "Snow J" and that will function like "Snow J*" because "J" is the last word in the query, and you will find the contact.
