How are you doing this - is this a Chrome extension? @GuyTaylor

Hi @darynsmith,

Yes, this is a chrome extension which allows the UI to display and contacts API which allows the filtering.

interesting so you are developing a chrome plug-in to support these versus in system functionality?

@JustinPerkinsC  a good question.

We are in fact using the existing HubSpot filtering system via API. You might be thinking can't this already be done without anything extra, the answer is mostly yes!

Most of the functionality we are offering already exists within HubSpot but from reading all the posts in the community it seems the process of tagging could be made easier.

So our hope here is first just to make a easier to use and dedicated tagging system. After which we have some ideas for new functionality (which doesn't exsit) that can be built on top of it.

If you have any input/ideas, it would be greatly appreciated.

My thoughts were more security related to granting an application not directly built into HubSpot access to information/data. Be good to know what data is, if any shared/stored/etc.

Ah, I see. A good point to raise.

I would be happy to see this on the HubSpot marketplace. They do not encourage submissions from fledgling products but if a sufficient number of people find it useful it would be great to get this approved into the official marketplace.

At the moment everything is done thru the existing HubSpot system. Data never leaves your machine, nothing is sent to us.

Excellent @GuyTaylor! Back in the day I used Active Campaign, where you can use a ton of tags. I've been strictly HubSpot for some years now, but still get asked about them. Of course custom properties take the place of tags, but if you have lower levels of HS, our aren't as comfortable using it, tags could be a lifesaver.

 

Thanks for the video!

@GuyTaylor - this looks very interesting! Would this also work in an integration scenario? Say for example we integrate HubSpot with another platform which uses tags and we would like to connect and keep the tags between the two systems in sync?
Thank you! 

Top Contributor

Thanks @MariaMilea, this is a excellent idea!

My initital thoughts... it's very do-able and would be a useful feature. I would prefer to build a direct integration and skip past Zapier(and similar products) for now. So what product should we integrate with first?

Timeline - We are currently working on a import feature. This will allow you to import tags via excel or similar file. I'm sure this will take several iterations to get right and polish. Once the import feature is complete, barring something unforseen, we can start work on this tag-sync feature.
