Last updated: January 14, 2019


The HubSpot and Workplace by Facebook integration allows you to receive instant messages within Workplace when your HubSpot notifications are triggered. This article walks through setting up the Workplace by Facebook integration and managing the HubSpot notifications that are available to be sent to Workplace.

Please note: you need to be a System Administrator in Workplace to connect your Workplace by Facebook account to HubSpot. 

Set up the Workplace by Facebook integration

  • In your HubSpot account, click your account name in the top right corner, then click Integrations.
  • Click the Connect an app button
  • Search for the Workplace by Facebook integration, then hover over it and click View integration.
  • In the dialog box that appears, click Connect to Workplace by Facebook.


  • You'll then be redirected to Workplace in a new browser tab. In the dialog box on the page, click Install.

Please note: HubSpot notifications are sent on a per user basis, so other Workplace users will not be able to see your HubSpot notifications.

  • Click Create a Task at the upper right of the tasks dashboard.
  • In the pane that slides in on the right, enter a Title. Under Email reminder, click the Date dropdown and select the current date, then click the Time dropdown and select the next time closest to your current time. Then, click Create.

  • When the time is reached, you'll be notified in Workplace of the task via instant message. Click View in HubSpot in the message window to open the task in HubSpot.

What can I do if my HubSpot user email doesn't match my Workplace user email?

If your HubSpot user email doesn't match your Workplace user email, you'll receive an email and in-app notification to "Map your HubSpot user's email address to your Workplace user" when HubSpot attempts to push a notification to Workplace.

  • In the email body, click View in HubSpot.

  • You'll be redirected to the Integrations settings tab of the specific notification type that couldn't be pushed to Workplace in a new browser tab or window. Hover over the warning icon warning next to Workplace, then click Click here to map emails.

  • In the dialog box that appears, enter your Workplace email address, then click Verify in Workplace.

  • A modal will appear to inform you to go to Workplace to confirm your email within the next 24 hours. Click Done and navigate to Workplace.
  • In Workplace, you'll receive an instant message to confirm that you want to map your HubSpot user to your Workplace user. Click Verify to proceed.

  • You'll be redirected back to the Integrations settings tab of the notification type in HubSpot in a new browser tab or window. A dialog box will appear to inform you that your email addresses have been successfully mapped, and you'll now receive HubSpot notifications in Workplace. Click Done to finish.
