Add CC and BCC capabilities to emails from HubSpot

We have a need for the option to add CC and BCC to emails that are sent from HubSpot. We have two important use cases for this.

Use case 1:
We have a registration form set up on our website. When someone registers, they receive an automated email from us through HubSpot saying "Thank you for registering!". Since we have a lot of different people signing up, it's very important for us to follow up on that email.

If we could add CC to me on the email that is sent out, I could pick up the conversation with the person registering very quickly. I could simply press "Reply" on the email and continue the conversation with the lead.

If I want to do this now with today's HubSpot solution, I'd have to copy/paste the lead's email address from the internal registration confirmation email, write a subject line that wouldn't confuse the lead, and then write the message to the lead. This delays the response time dramatically, and takes up substantially more resources.

Use case 2:
If we could add BCC to emails as well, it would give people two great advantages;
(1) HubSpot emails could easily be integrated with almost ANY CRM (ex. Email to CRM option), and
(2) it would add the contents of the email to the CRM (more than just "Sent Subject Line").

If anything is unclear, I would loooove to explain in more detail.

Statut mis à jour : Not Currently Planned

Hi folks- 

Just dropping back in to say thank you for all the comments & thoughts here. For transparency, this is still not yet on the roadmap. We are evaluating it as something to add in the back half of this year, but nothing is yet planned. 

 

Please keep upvoting this, and dropping your use cases for it. We are following it and listening. 

 

Cheers,

Jake

Statut mis à jour : Not Currently Planned

Thanks for your comments on the idea. This isn't planned for development in the next quarter. For transparency and clarity, I'm updating this issue to 'Not currently planned' for the time being. We are evaluating this feature, but it requires substantial changes in how a number of our backend systems work. Specifically how our event (open & click) tracking works today. 

 

If you are willing to jump on a call to talk more about this functionality, and your specific use cases send me a direct message.  I would love to understand and learn more from you. Please feel free to upvote and continue to leave feedback on this thread.

Hi all, wanted to chime in here to let you know that we're definitely paying attention to this idea post, it's gathered a lot of votes, rightly so. At the moment we don't have a clear answer on when this might be available, I wanted to make sure and be transparent here to let you know. Your feedback and unique ideas/use-cases are really important so please do keep sharing, and as we have a clearer plan here I'll be sure and keep everyone posted. Thanks!

How this is not yet happening? It's a must for B2B companies...

Hi, is there an update on how this idea is progressing in the pipeline?

I placed that request in three years ago....  

I am no longer using Hubspot.

I really can't believe that this has not been actioned.

 

I have been told that having people copied in could mess up knowing who has read the email but as we already copy people in manually, this is not a valid point.

 

There are so many use cases for this and hundreds of people have asked for this. 

 

Ideally, I would like to be able to add cc and bcc recipients to templates. A way around this could also be to allow @Someone's-email in the body of the text and they get copied in like with Gmail.

 

Please Hubspot, action this.

Having to request this type of functionality for a software in this day and age seems ridiculous, CC and BCC are a normal function of email, I am very interested to see if this will be resolved by HubSpot.

Use Case: when a quote is signed, and an Implementation Manager is assigned (this is a property that we have on the Deal, of type "HubSpot User"), I want to send an automated email "from" the Deal Owner (salesperson) to the Quote Signer, cc'ing the Implementation Manager, making a warm intro.

 

Today, our salespeople are asked to do it manually, quickly, but they forget and are slow (and sometimes can't act immediately because the Implementation Manager hasn't been assigned right when they look...


Please add this!

Hey Hubspot, how are things going with this? Upvoting & commenting to keep attention on it. It's been years now & people are still asking. It would be great to send marketing emails with someone else from my team CCed.

Maybe we shall all comment again here and share usage cases we could think of for the feature. Also please don't forget to comment with your hubspot contacts!!! Happy summer to everyone!

Repeating what I have already said but I STILL really need this... and it looks like plenty of other customers do as well.

 

I have templates for numerous resellers around the world and for each template, I shold be able to specify the CC as the reseller for that country.

 

Also, when I send an email following a sale, I should be able to CC Production in to give them warning etc

 

Please look at this, it is not difficult. Even if you had the option to have in the body of the email '@someone@email.com' to include them - the same way it works in Gmail

 

Thank you,

 

Matthew

We've been asking for this since 2017, I don't think they are going to fix
it by next week.

This is very much needed, especially for accountability in a large team!!!!

Use case-

When sending marketing emails our customers often require a personalised follow up. So we need to include our teams on the initial mail out (either the same people in cc for all emails, or the 'contact owner'). This is an important feature for our teams.

Need BCC for BOTH Marketing Email and Sequences
Usecase, simple. We have an in-house service that needs to be BCCed on all email communications.

It's crazy that this feature is being ignored. For our company-based association, sending bulk emails with our secondary contacts cc'd, is a necessity.

We also need the ability to allow Personalization Tokens as part of this as well, such as sending an email to one static email and one Personalization Token email as part of the same cc: email.

We would like to see this added, as well!

Hi, me and my team are still struggling because we cannot add BCC to our marketing emails and log these emails in our CRM. Are there any plans to implement this on the roadmap? Thanks.
