Once you've integrated your Google Calendar or Office 365 calendar, you can schedule meetings with contacts from contact, company, deal, or ticket records and send a calendar invite to the meeting attendees. You can also add users as meeting attendees.

This article applies to users who are using the Google Calendar or Office 365 integration with HubSpot. If you connected your calendar to the meetings tool, learn more about creating and editing scheduling pages

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to your contacts, companies, deals, or tickets.

      • The contact needs to have a valid email address populated in the Email property to receive an invitation.
      • Once the meeting is scheduled, your contact will receive an invitation with an .ics file which can be added to their calendar.
      • A meeting will automatically be created for you in your calendar.

Please note:

  • If you have not integrated with Google Calendar or Office 365 Calendar, you will be prompted to do so when scheduling a meeting.

 

The meeting will save as an engagement on the record's timeline. After the meeting takes place, you can assign a meeting outcome to better track your meetings with contacts.

Please note: changes to meeting descriptions on the contact record will only be sent to attendees if you are using Google Calendar and have turned on the Google Calendar two-way integration with HubSpot. If you are using an Office 365 calendar or do not have the integration turned on, update the meeting description in the calendar event to send changes to the attendees, not in the contact record.
