Email addresses entered into the Email field on a HubSpot form are immediately validated by HubSpot. Although email addresses cannot always be validated with complete accuracy, HubSpot will try to verify the following:
If you want to build a form with custom validation rules, you can work with your developer to integrate your custom form with HubSpot using the HubSpot Forms API.
No, it is not possible to embed HubSpot forms in your emails. Forms are not supported in emails across common email clients due to security risks. Instead, it is best practice to place a call-to-action or a link to landing page with a form in the body of your email.
Yes. When a visitor lands on your site, HubSpot tracks their activity and identifies them as a unique visitor by setting tracking cookies in their browser. Once the visitor submits a form, HubSpot will try to associate the new contact record with any previously tracked activity.
If a visitor clears their cookies before submitting a form on your site, HubSpot will not be able to associate previously tracked activity with the new contact.
If you need additional functionality that is not available with standard HubSpot forms, you can work with your developer to integrate your external forms with HubSpot using the HubSpot Forms API.
If you have a Professional or Enterprise account, you can use workflows to create and send custom internal notification emails in addition to the default form submission notification emails.
When a contact fills out a form, their lifecycle stage will be set to Lead by default. You can set the Lifecycle stage property with a workflow (Professional and Enterprise accounts only).
When a property has a default value or preselect value, the value will be submitted unless it's manually changed by the visitor before submitting the form. Whether you can enter a default value or preselect value when adding the property to your form depends on the property field types you're using:
|Default value property field types||Preselect value property field types|
If the Pre-populate fields with known values option is toggled on, the default value will take precedence and will not be overwritten by any existing values. This is useful when you want to pass a specific value with hidden form fields.
Unlike default values, if the Pre-populate fields with known values option is toggled on, preselected values will be overwritten by any existing values. If you're trying to pass a specific value with hidden form fields, it's important to note that pre-selected form fields can be overwritten by previously submitted form field values.
No, it is not possible to send visitors to different thank you pages based on how they respond to questions on your form unless you build a custom form and integrate it with HubSpot using the HubSpot Forms API.
If you have a Professional or Enterprise account, you can use workflows to send an email after form submission.
