Schedule a meeting for another hubspot user from contact record

Firstly, not to have to add an existing hubspot user as a contact to be able to add them.

Secodly, not adding the person who sets up the meeting as an attendee because they simply create meetings for other users and don't have to be invited to the meeting

I'm happy to share that after some time in beta, this functionality went live to all in July this year! You can now book meetings on behalf of others from any CRM record for users with a Sales Hub or Service Hub Pro+ seat. You all had been asking for this for a long time and I appreciate your patience.

Hi Community,


Sharing an update with you all to let you know that we've been following this closely the last several months and have begun to plan out a series of changes to the scheduling experience from a CRM record that would allow users to schedule meetings on behalf of other users, and more. For now, I'll share these concepts to show you how this might look. Details are subject to change based on technical limitations and feedback, but in summary we plan to include the following functionality in this experience: 

  • Schedule a meeting on behalf of another user
  • Reference availability for yourself or other users
  • Set and view location of meeting events from a CRM record (including Microsoft Teams)
  • Create custom outcomes for meeting events

Hi Community,


We are planning to prioritize some updates to scheduling from a contact record, which includes a solution that would resolve this issue.


Here are some details about current work which will influence our team's timing and ability to begin working on this solution:

The team is currently working on 2 projects:

  1. The ability to insert specific, clickable times into emails
  2. The ability for attendees to cancel and reschedule using the Meetings scheduling experience (idea here)


We then plan to pick up this project once the above 2 projects are out. This will likely happen later in Q4 or early next year. 


The solution we have in mind is currently being evaluated and reviewed internally, but we hope to make some changes to the scheduling experience on the contact record to:

- allow users to schedule on behalf of other users

- allow users in invite other users to meeting scheduled

- provide the ability to view calendar availability while scheduling from a contact record


Thanks everyone for sharing your feedback and comments on your use-cases how you'd like this solution to work!

Hi Communnity,


Thank you all for sharing your feedback!


For transparency I am updating this issue from "In Planning" to "Not Currently Planned" because we wont be able to get to this in the next quarter. Adding users  to a meeting invite, or removing yourself, is important to any sales teams structured with a SDR/BDR to Account manager handoff.  We are evaluating this closely, I will provide an update here once we are able to review this for planning.

We've been using the reps meeting link with Incognito so that tracking is not present. That is the only way we've been able to figure it out for now.


Definitely need this in place. Found out the other week that much of our data for 1st meetings booked and attended are not correct thanks to this.


This is a must for any modern sales organisation. Give this functionality the priority it deserves. And please let me know if this becomes a beta.


This is really mandatory for any sales process.



It's a mess to have to create contacts for internal users to be able to track this


We desperatelly need this. Any updates on the pipeline? Hopefully in the upcoming release??


Yes, please.  We also need this very badly. 


Any news on this update? 


We also have the added complexity that we have a New business team that book meetings but may not attend, we'd want to see reports for the meetings they've booked and for our reps the meetings that they sat.  Would this be possible? 




Please add this functionality. I like the feedback from another user from like 2018 that suggested we simply have the meeting scheduling tool, but internally. Being able to schedule meetings for others across a team is an incredibly important and common need for modern sales teams. 


This would be an extremely good case for easing the activity monitoring and getting rid of double logging meetings and thus cluttering the data with unnecessary meetings just for the sake of reporting!


Just adding to this, I think it is a super important addition! Just as we can associate meetings to various objects, we should be able to associate it to users so they get credit. We run into this issue a lot as multiple sales reps are on meetings. We had a way of doing this in salesforce and now in hubspot we are a little stuck. Hoping this gets added soon!!

Any updates on this? This issue is going to cause us to reevaluate the software. 


How is it possible that this still not a feature?


In may 2017 you guys said ''For transparency I am updating this issue from "In Planning" to "Not Currently Planned" because we wont be able to get to this in the next quarter.

You were talking about not able the next quarter, we are three years later!!!


Come on guys. You can do better than this.


I totally agree. In many situations, we have meeting with several Hubspot users and for the moment, we must create contact for each Hubspot user in order to link them all together. This feature should be mandatory. May we hope to have this feature in the near future?


Commenting to follow, also looking for an update.


We are also waiting for this feature, this is essential for every sales company with a front office or something like this.

Just adding to this one, I've had several requests from clients for adding this functionality - the ability to schdule a meeting for someone else directly from the contact record would be an excellent addition to HubSpot. Appreciate there are some workarounds but they are messy. 


Use case - SDR sets a meeting for one of their AEs


This has been going for 4 years, and its quite simple and crucial feature! Any updates? 

Did anyone find a hack to make this work? 

Mitglied | Platinum Partner

@FPastorelli The closest I could come to a hack was to use the Gcal sync in the other direction. Adding a gcal event with a client email and the correct sales agent email will update the contact record with an activity. You can create automation off of this activity. In Gmail - you can set other people to be owners of your calendar so they can add, remove, and move calendar events as needed. This does however replace the native scheduling feature. So while it provides some solutions, it's really not a full on solution. 

Mitwirkender/Mitwirkende | Partner

@FPastorelli we've been using the calendar in an incognito browser and completing it as if we are the prospect or customer to find a spot that works for the rep. It is not ideal however it has been working.



We also need this feature.


Furthermore, if there are 3 attendees from our company, each attendee should receive an "attendance credit" towards their meeting count. This could be a separate metric from the # of meetings logged - i.e. # of meetings per attendee, with an internal contact filter.
