HubSpot Ideas


Allow workflows to delete or mark tasks complete

USE CASE: We use a custom property to identity when a contact is known to be a dead lead. However, many of these contacts have pending tasks associated which are no longer applicable once a contact is dead.

PROPOSED FUNCTIONALITY: Add a feature to workflows which would allow changing the status of a task or deleting it. Basically this would be just the opposite of creating a task from a workflow ... but perhaps a bit more complex to implement . Currently workflows auto create many tasks which now no long are applicable and must be manually deleted.

It is much needed feature as plenty of tasks are uncompleted because one department is not responsible for the complete process. Once the job is given to the other department, earlier department leave the task open and this shows tasks pendency in the system.


Should have option to complete or delete the tasks throug workflow based on certain action(s) and have clear system.


Clean system can help us to have smooth process functions


Would love to see this functionality implemented. The ability to delete tasks and other object records via workflow would enable a lot of automated solutions in the platform that currently aren't possible.
