With tickets, you can organize all of your customer inquiries in one place and track any interactions or information about that issue over time. Learn the different ways of creating tickets.

Once a ticket is created, you can access the ticket record to record or retrieve information. This allows you and your team to stay on the same page with a customer inquiry.

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Service > Tickets.
  • In your tickets index page, locate the ticket you want to work with and click its name. This will bring you to its record.

The following sections cover the left panel, middle panel, and right panel.

Associated records and additional tools

In the right panel, view the other records and tools associated with the record. You can rearrange the sections by dragging them.

Record associations are displayed under the respective record type sections (i.e., Contacts, Companies, Deals). Learn about associations between different records.

To associate your ticket record with another record:

  • In the relevant record type section, click Add.
  • You can either create a new record to associate to the contact, or associate an existing record to the contact.
    • To create a new record to associate the ticket to, in the Create a new [record] tab, enter information into the fields, and click Create.
    • To associate an existing record, click the Add existing [record] tab, search for the record, and select the checkbox next to the record in the search results. Click Save.


If the ticket is associated to a thread in the conversations inbox, the conversation will appear in the right panel. To navigate directly to the conversation in the inbox, click the name of the conversation. The conversation will open in another browser tab where you can review the thread or follow up as needed. Learn more about working with tickets in your inbox.



You can attach files to the ticket record by clicking Upload file or Add file. You can also view attachments that were sent as part of a logged email to a contact who is associated to the deal record.
