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.

Totally agree with this - this feature is very needed indeed!

The automatic association really makes no sense at all and makes importing contacts almost impossible. Adding them manually is the faster and safer way up to a number of at least 50 or so. We are a b2b business and we almost always have different offices of the same company in our system, so location Berlin, location Stockholm, location Paris, etc. They all have the same domain - so when we import contacts, it almost always creates a mess.

We focus on small, privately-owned businesses and many use gmail, not a unique domain. Could we verify by Company Name and Street Address, for example? There needs to be a way to match Contacts to a Company based on an alternate field than email domain.

This is a must have and should be enchanged in next release; severe limitation of database management.

Had I known this limitation I would not have moved to HubSpot sales.
