Cannot see Company Name on dashboard for some contacts

When I imported my original contact list the company name shows.

However, when I manually enter everything the company name doesn't show on the dashboard. I entered a company and associated it with the contact. Not sure what to do from here, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @dkolewe

 

It could be because the associated company and the contact property 'Company name' are two different things. 

 

If you uploaded company names onto contacts during an import, they will be in the Company name contact property. If you manually enter and associate a contact with a company, that contact's Company name property may well remain empty. 

 

Hope this makes sense.

dkolewe,

In what format did you import your contacts into Hubspot?

If it's CSV or Excel, I can recommend to take advantage of automated data migration service Data2CRM. It allows you to import data from CRM/CSV/Excel into Hubspot smoothly and secure. You just download file into the system, map fields (if needed) and the service will do all the hard work for you. No tech skills needed at all.

Moreover, Data2CRM and Hubspot are official partners.

 

Try to put some amount of your contacts into Hubspot to see how it'll look like and see how the system works. It's free and secure.

 

Best.
