HubSpot Ideas


Local time displayed in contact record. (Timezones)


I would like to see a feature that shows what the local time is for a contact. 

The community forum refers to Google Chrome extensions like Fox Clocks, but even then there is the work of figuring out what time zone they're in. 


It would be great if HubSpot took the data that it has and surface to show the local time.


This will help me not interrupt dinners, or worse call in the middle of the night.

I was just about to add this! It would be incredibly helpful.


If Hubspot can build this to off of either the address located in the relatd company or even the IP timezone (Which isn't 100% accurate but still helpful...)


If it can be displayed on the contact record, where their name and the action centre is, it can say '1:30pm Tuesday 10 January 2021 local time' It would save a lot of messing around of all sales teams...


Slack has something similar, when you start a chat with a contact you see immediately what thier localtime is. It is very convienient and reassuring. For example if it shows that the time is 7:00 AM then I will start by saying good morning, if it shows 12:00 then I know this is the mid of their day and so on.


Yes, time zone for a customer relationship is cursially important. I looked for a plugin or something from the conntected apps, I was hoping to see a plugin that reads the timezone and calculate the time for me but could't find any.


I envison this to work in few ways.

Hubspot automatically look at the phone number and fills the timezone field. or use the IP timezone field if all failed, I will manually enter the time zone.

Hubspot calculate the localtime and show it under the contact name


Has this been resolved? Really would like to see contact's timezone in HubSpot rather than having to check externally. 


Any work on the timezone requests?

Please do this. I have a worldwide client, and it would be great to see where the bulk of their customers are located. There are two fields in properties for Time Zone. It's mind-boggling that it's not automatically filled in based on the last known IP Address.


2022 now and we still want this *Bump*


This would be a super useful feature. I am working with customers from different time zones and I have to manually keep track of these in an excel file which is not ideal. The way I see this feature is either to be something automated based on IP addresses or mobile phone numbers as others suggessted, but I'd also like to be able to add the time zone manually when needed on a contact record. Please make this happen 🙏


Can we please get this going? If it doesn't update automaticlly, at least please let us manually update the record. Changing the time when scheduling emails is a total pain and not conducive for time management. If I have a sequence going, I want to be able to quickly work through personalizing their emails and then hit send later with the appropriate time coming up. Additionally, I wanted to be able to work through my sequence in time zone order. I shouldn't be getting PST contacts in my sequence before my EST. This seems like no-brainer functionality. 


Very simple functionality that would be very helpful.


If we know their street address (or their IP address, if not available) display their local current time in a property, also available at the top of the profile.


Also, please make this a Contact-level property so that we can sort View columns based on local time to make it easier to prioritize people on our lists.


Also would be good for Company object, too.


I would love this feature. 


It would make things super easier and would help a lot. Please consider it!

Hubspot please do this, especially since you're building out call functionality-- the Time Zone property has a thousand different values based on city.


The complexities of daylight savings and geo make this hard to capture in a standard workflow-- would be great if you could roll out a synthesized property for time zone that is easier to understand based on ie Eastern Time (2hrs behind) or soething like such. 


I think this new feature would be very well recieved by customers using hubspot calling tools. 


Please build this feature in, HubSpot. It would be super valuable for us to be able to prioritize contacts based on time zones.

This is one of those properties  OOTB that would be AMAZING paired with the calling tool. 


"It's 5am in ______"


Daylight savings makes simple workflows to do this a nightmare without opshub pro..



a simple CRM like Close I.O has this bult into it, all the fancy with hubspot and dont have this yet after 5 years of people asking for it... 



Having this same issue, it would be amazing if this feature was built in by default as it just makes sense to have.


As per above - we sell all over the world so knowing what time it is where the contact is makes everything so much more professional.


This is the feature we would like to use several time a day because your cotnact are all over the world and we do no want to call our custoemr when they are asleep...

How is this not a default CRM feature! 


This would make calling during business hours so much easier. 


This would be so helpful! Especially when calling contacts in different timezones.
