In HubSpot, you can log and comment on activities within records. Mentioning a team member in an activity or a comment helps to alert them to the activity.
Notifications are only sent the first time you mention someone on an activity. This includes when the activity is created, or when you mention the user for the first time when editing an activity.
Please note: users will not receive a notification if they mention themself on an activity, are mentioned an additional time on an existing activity, or if the activity was created via API. After an activity is created via API, you can comment to mention users from within its associated records.
Navigate to your records:
Contacts: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Contacts.
Companies: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Companies.
Deals: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Sales > Deals.
Tickets: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Service > Tickets.
Custom objects: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Contacts, then click the dropdown menu in the top left and select the name of the custom object.
In the activity or note editor, type @ and your team member's email or name. In the dropdown menu, select a user to tag them in your note.
Please note: both the user's name and the @ before the name must be half-width characters. If a user's name includes full-width characters, such as Japanese, you'll need to mention the user's email instead. If the @ still doesn't populate a user's name, even if the name has half-width characters, you may need to update your @ to half-width.
