Activities are interactions that are recorded on a record's timeline. They include notes, emails, calls, tasks, and meetings. Certain activities can be edited after being logged on the timeline (e.g., you can edit the contents of a note).

Please note: activities such as logged emails from an inbox cannot be edited, and therefore will not have a history. Only editable activities, such as manually logged emails and calls, will have a history.

To view a history of changes to an activity:

  • Navigate to your records:
    • Contacts: In your HubSpot account, navigate to CRM > Contacts.
    • Companies: In your HubSpot account, navigate to CRM > Companies.
    • Deals: In your HubSpot account, navigate to CRM > Deals.
    • Tickets: In your HubSpot account, navigate to CRM > Tickets.
    • Custom objects: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > [Custom object]. If your account has more than one custom object, hover over Custom Objects, then select the custom object you want to view.
  • Click the name of the record you want to check.
  • Locate the activity you want to analyze. If the activity details are collapsed, click the right right arrow in the top left of the activity to expand it.
  • Click Actions.
  • In the dropdown menu, select History.


  • In the right panel, view the history of changes to the activity.
