Adding comments to workflow actions allows you to give context to an automated process and collaborate with your team. 

For example, you may want to leave a comment on a delay action to ask a colleague to double check workflow timing.


Comments can be added to all workflow actions, including if/then branches. You can edit or delete a comment after adding it.

To add a comment to a workflow:

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Automation > Workflows.
  • Click the name of the workflow.
  • Hover over the action that you want to comment on. In the bottom right of the action, click the comment icon comments .  
  • In the comment field, type your comment. To tag another user, type @ followed by their name.
  • To save your comment, click Save or hit enter. Once a comment has been added to an action, the comment icon will display so that others know the action has been commented on.
  • To edit or delete your comment, click the comment icon comments , then click Actions and select Edit or Delete. You can only edit or delete your own comments.
