Bring back ability to delete activities to new activity feed

by removing the little "x" on each activity it makes it virtually impossible to easily see the most important activities  I need tracked.    And your system tracks my internal communications to my colleagues - so once a question/issue is resolved I need to remove that from the activity feed and see other e mail responses

Interesting to see that 7 of the folks who have "upvoted" this idea are HUBSPOT EMPLOYEES

Anyone not thrilled with the latest release? Can't "Delete" conversations? Showing activity since the beginning of time?? Don't care as much about that, but not being able to clean up the feed so you can focus on the most important is just not good.....

Also you can't delete a notification! Let's go back to the previous version

I am 100% in agreement that not being able to delete activities from the feed is real nuisance - it plugs up the view of activities with endless stuff that is not relevant to my current tasks.  If I could revert to the previous version I would. Hey Hubspot - why do I need to see 317 activities from a client or prospect - I only need to know that s/he opened my most recent e mail. I don't need activity reports going back to 2016.  I want to delete activities that are no longer important

Thanks for your comments. Not sure Hubspot thought this through. Like you, I only need to see the "last" communication and whether THAT was opened and how many times AND delete irrelevant strings!!!

Since I have removed the possibility of eliminating I am already considering alternatives to Hubspot

Same here. I've had to remove the Hubspot extension from Chrome because it was logging all of my gmail emails. Including personal emails. And I don't have time to enter every email that I don't want the system to log. I agree! We should have the ability to delete irrelevent strings!!

Removing the function to delete old/accidental/unnecessary notification has made my activity feed more cluttered and doesn't allow myself or my coworkers who use HubSpot to see what really matters in our tracked emails. We are currently looking into other software because of this.

This has rendered the activity feed useless.  The feed is  just full of meaningless correspondence with existing customers that should be deletable.  Now we have to wander thru 100's of flotsam and jetsam correspondences just to find emails that are 'working" sales or service correspondence.  Why woulds you remove a completely hidden tiny x.  We don't even use the activity feed any more.  It's completely counterproductive in the sales process.  We too are interviewing other CRM's.  The activity feed was our most important tool in closing sales.  Now we use another email tool.

Thanks Will. Not sure what they were thinking, but if you find another program that will track opened emails, I would love to hear about it. Unless Hubspot brings back decent function. . . I'll be out too.
