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. Users that are mentioned a second time on an existing activity will not receive notifications.

Please note: mentioning your own user will not send you a notification.

  • 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.
