Automatically associate Contacts with Companies based on Company Name property

Currently, HubSpot will only automatically associate a Contact with a Company if the Contact's email sending domain matches the Company Domain Name of a Company record. If a Contact is using an email address that was not supplied by their company, it would be great if the software could instead match it to a Company record via the Contact's Company Name property.

I need it too.

Wow, I can't believe this is not supported...

Agreed, CANNOT BELIEVE this hasn't been addressed yet. It makes our data fairly unusable when we can't properly format it for targeting.

Please can you do this - trying to move 10 000 emails from a competitor CRM and a lot of our clients have personal emails. Makes us not want to move from Copper to Hubspot. And the really silly thing is you can individually connect a contact to a company which means it doesn't have to link to the URL.

+1 the need for a workflow to assign contacts to a company - cannot believe we have no way to do this. We need this functionality badly.

Yes, please! Must have!

I'm not saying this is an acceptable solution, and it definitely needs automated, but, you can do this yourself, by exporting all your "stray" contacts and a complete list of companies. The contact list should include Contact ID and Company Name, whereas the company list should include the Company ID and Name. Match them in Excel using the "Name" / "Company Name" fields as the unique identifier, and reupload them into Hubspot in a doc containing both the Company ID and Contact ID on the same row. Hubspot will associate the contacts to the companies during the upload.


Time consuming, yes, but if you do this once a month or once a quarter, it'll keep your portal from growing arms and legs.

Hello HubSpot Community, 

Thank you as always for your continued feedback, it helps us build a great product.

We are constantly evaluating and re-evaluating our priorities and roadmap to deliver as much value to our customers as possible. At this time, this is not something our team is currently planning to build natively into HubSpot. This is certainly subject to change in the future and we will update this idea if that becomes the case.

From my point of view, I actually hope and believe this idea is solved with the same core technology as this other popular post!
