Hello everyone,

 

I have a contact who works in two different companies. I want to associate to this two companies, but i can´t do it. If i associate to one companie the contact de-associate to the other.

I guess, that the unique solution is to duplicate and create a contact-2 to assign to the company B.

Do you have any idea to solve it ?

Thanks a lot

Hey @roldannn at this time it is not possible to associate one contact record to multiple company records. You can vote for this feature request here: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Associate-one-contact-to-multiple-companies/idi-p/192...

 

It is possible to create parent/child relationships between two companies and then associate the parent company with the contact in question.

Another approach you might find useful is associating a deal to the contact and to a different company than the one the contact belongs to.

This way you can have a "freelancing" contact you can communicate with concerning different companies.

Does this work also if I associate the contacts in two different deals? 

Is there a way to see t only relevant emails for each deal?

Seems to separate the communication pretty effectively, I cannot figure out the logic without further digging though. Email subject is a guess, sending relevant emails per deal through Hubspot from the email tab of the Deal would be the way to safely do it.
