Thank you for the continued feedback here. It's very helpful as we have been digging in to understand the use-cases better.
While we don't have anything currently planned here, we will update you if that changes.
I'm Jesse Tremblay, Product Manager for our Automation products here at HubSpot. Thanks for all of your feedback on this thread.
While we don't currently have anything planned here, we are going to be reviewing this idea. We will update this thread as we learn more.
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.
How many votes do you actually need to review this?
Anyone, here is +1 - very much needed
+1. needed feature
Another case where I would gladly have this feature enabled:
Had an error with a workflow where EVERY contact that was ever enrolled in the workflow, enrolled AGAIN. About 3.000, which all got another task. We had to manually go over these 3.000 contacts and complete the extra task.
This could have been an easy fix with an automated workflow.
Upvoting this idea! This "auto-delete" of already existing tasks would be helpful for sales teams.
USE CASE: Workflows are created for Sales reps that automatically creates tasks to follow up with new contacts. However, when those contacts have been disqualified for whatever reason, those open tasks still exist. Which means if there are multiple tasks that are created for every new contact a rep has, you're looking at a rep having to manually delete 3 tasks times 20 contacts = 60 tasks. In terms of keeping a clean and organized pipeline, this lack of a native solution is a headache for Sales teams.
SOLUTION: Create an action that would allow us to auto-delete tasks for contacts who those tasks no longer apply to.
Any plans on this request being put on the front burner soon?
This would easily save me days per year (not joking).
Yes please !
We actually love this idea for the use case of marking 'Sales' followups tasks complete once a deal is converted, rather than lost.
Possibly even for heading the task over to another team for ongoing customer engagement.
How is this still not a thing...
It is great that tasks can be automatically created in a workflow, but it would be great for the ability to have a task marked as complete when a property is updated in the workflow, instead of having to remember to go back and manually mark task as complete.
hey any updates here?
