How can I select a bunch of companies (let's say around 10,000) and sync those onto Salesforce from Hubspot?

 

Is this possible?

Hi @Drishtii 

This is what I found :

 


When does HubSpot create new accounts in Salesforce?

 

The Salesforce integration will create an account in Salesforce if the HubSpot company is associated with syncing contacts, or if a user has manually forced the HubSpot company to sync.

 

When a company is created in HubSpot, the integration will not automatically create a Salesforce account if:

 

  • The company is not associated with any HubSpot contacts.
  • All of the company’s associated HubSpot contacts are syncing with Salesforce leads.
  • None of the company’s associated HubSpot contacts qualify for your Salesforce inclusion list.

You can manually create a new account in Salesforce by navigating to the company record in HubSpot, and clicking Sync on the Salesforce Sync card.

 

Let me know if this helps?

Hi @Drishtii

There are two ways to do this: 

  1. You can follow these tutorials, but this will import all accounts from Salesforce to HubSpot
    1. Import Salesforce records
    2. Sync Salesforce accounts to HubSpot
  2. Or, you can use Selective Sync (Salesforce settings) to select which specific contacts/accounts you want to sync into HubSpot

 

Let me know if this helps, 

 

Best,

Hey @sferreira - I am aware of the support articles and information you've shared with me here. What I am trying to achieve is the opposite - Selectively sync companies from Hubspot to Salesforce. 

 

I am unsure if this is possible at the moment.

Thanks for the clarification @Drishtii ! 

For the moment inclusion list would only target which contacts do you want to sync from HubSpot to SFDC but, this doesn't apply to companies. 

 

As soon as Company Sync is enabled, all of them will sync. 

 

Wondering from SFDC support side if there's any custom rule to avoid having Companies being created from HubSpot to SFDC?

@sferreira - No, I don't see any restrictions or criteria from the SFDC side. What I am seeing is that the sync page on HS says sync SFDC accounts to Hubspot and not the other way around.

Question: If I mark my companies as target accounts, will they sync then?
