Require task completion before progressing a Sequence

Scott from the product team here. 


In Sequences today, task completion is NOT required before progressing onto the next step in a sequence.  For a sequence with multiple email steps, call tasks, and social touchpoints, this means that if a task step is not completed, future emails and tasks will still get sent or created. 


We've heard from our users that there should be an option to require that a task be completed before sending the next email in a sequence, or before creating another net new task. 


To solve this, we're evaluating support for this feature in Sequences:

My team really needs this feature! It's hard to use the sequencing feature otherwise and we're now looking for a 3rd party sequencing tool that messes with my call flow. Help please!

@cbasaing  Can you let me know if you find something? We're in the same position. I had a nice chat with Glen (product at Hubspot) and it's coming up, but we're feeling the pinch as well.

I have been needing this badly for the last 2 years. Excited they are working on it. Can't imagine it being that hard of a fix.

We recemtly moved to Hubspot and I'm trying to replicate the sequences we use in Hubspot sequences - so that we can stop using and only use Hubspot. 


But I'm being blocked because of how hubspot sequences don't require for the task to be completed before moving on the the next step. 


How do I opt in for early access for this?

This work is currently in development. 


@OfferZenBrett  - we hope to have a closed beta ready for this in the coming weeks. I'll update the post here and create a very short sign-up form (email and HUB ID) to give early access to anyone that would like to be a tester for this feature.

Hi Sequences Community!


We are now collecting beta sign-ups for this feature. Please fill out this form to be part of this beta.

 - We are currently only taking Sales and Services Professional and Enterprise customers for this closed beta.



  • Several dozen of you that have reached out directly and are already included, but filling out the form will be helpful for our team
  • I have included a survey question to this form that again will also be very helpful for our team as we continue development
  • This work is still in development, I will update here once the beta is live


Thanks everyone!
