How do I import contacts into HubSpot and prevent them from syncing to Salesforce?

Last updated: October 6, 2015

Applies to:

  • There are two ways to import contacts to HubSpot while keeping them from syncing with Salesforce
  • The first is, when importing a file, make the Default Lifecycle Stage for These Contacts Subscriber
    • By default, Subscribers will not sync with Salesforce
    • An import cannot rollback the Lifecycle Stage of an existing contact, so any contact that already exists will not be made a Subscriber
    • If you are using an Inclusion List, all contacts on the list will sync - even Subscribers
  • The second option is to create an Inclusion List which does not include any of the contacts on your import
