Embed external content on a HubSpot dashboard to display that content alongside your reports. For example, you can embed a Google Slides presentation or Twitter feed.

Embedded content counts toward the limit of items you can have on one dashboard, but does not count toward your limit of custom reports. Learn more about these limits in HubSpot's Product & Services catalog.

To embed external content on a dashboard:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Reports > Dashboards.
  • In the upper left, use the dashboard dropdown menu to select the dashboard you want to add content to.
  • In the upper right, click Actions, then select Embed external content

  • In the dialog box, set up your external content:
    • In the Title field, enter a title for your content.
    • In the URL or embed code field, enter the URL or embed code for the content you want to add. A preview of the content will then appear. If your content doesn't appear as expected, check out the troubleshooting steps below.
  • Click Create.
  • To update external content, hover over the content card, then click the verticalMenumenu icon and select Edit. After making your changes, click Save.

Troubleshoot embedded content

If your embedded content isn't appearing as expected, try the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Ensure that the URL begins with http://https://, or //.
  • Check the access settings on the content you're trying to embed. You may need to publish it or otherwise make it available outside the source website. For example, you may need to make it public. Some providers may require users to log in to view the content.
  • Check to see if the provider offers an embed code or link specifically intended for sharing. It's recommended to consult the content provider's documentation for further embedding or sharing requirements.
