Sync Tasks with Calendar (Google/Outlook)

When I schedule a task (eg call) I'd like a check box to show the task in Google Calendar (like meetings, but without mailing the contact).

Status updated to: Not Currently Planned

Hi folks,

 

At this time there are no plans to implement this Idea.  I’d like to stress that “Not Currently Planned” does not mean HubSpot will never build this feature, just that it is not on our current roadmap. We reevaluate Ideas every so often, so please feel free to upvote and leave feedback on this thread.

 

I understand this answer may be disappointing to some of you, but HubSpot believes in transparency whenever possible.

 

Best,

Joe

Hi all,

 

Scott from the product team here. Just want to surface my previous comment (from April 2019).

 

At this time, we are focused on baseline improvements to tasks that are required before we can successfully build the calendar integration described. That said, we certainly see the value in showing tasks in google calendar and will update this issue when we shift our focus towards solving this problem. 

 

If you’re interested in chatting with us about how you’d expect this sync to work or if you’d like to be kept up to date as we begin work on this feature, please fill out this form.

 

Thanks,

Scott

Hi all - Scott from the product team here to provide a quick update. This is absolutely a must-have, and we appreciate all the feedback you’ve shared to help validate that for our team.

 

That said, it’s going to take some time for us to make the changes required to support this integration. As a first step, we’ve restructured our product and engineering teams. Today, we have an entire team focused on improving the sales rep experience -- cutting out those added steps and inefficiencies many of you have laid out in this thread. One of the first things this team has prioritized is the baseline improvements to tasks that are required before we can successfully build the calendar integration described.

 

If you’re interested in chatting with us about how you’d expect this sync to work or if you’d like to be kept up to date as we begin work on this feature, please fill out this form.

This would fill a major gap!

+10 for this feature, I love working with tasks and put them in my calendar all the time. It would really help to have one place for all my appointments, meetings and tasks that gives me reminders.  That the tasks are not synced from and to Hubspot with google calendar makes tasks in HubSpot not usable for me, although I love to log every task that I have planned and completed for an account.

Product Team: This idea should be towards the very top of your To Do list. 

 

Thank you in adavance!

I have the same needs. I am used to work with outlook calendars and usually synchronize different calendars with outlook. It would be a great idea to get HubSpot CRM tasks sync with tasks so that I don't need to connect to CRM every time I have to check for tasks due  date and issues

I just got a reply from assistance and be pleased to be informed as soon as possible

Hi there!

Any news on this topic?

Thanks a lot!

Even if there was a way to do it through Zapier, but I can't find anything...

Love this idea!

Hi Hubspot team. Any updates on the ETA for Integrating tasks with Outlook Calendar? Please advise. Thanks!

New Contributor

This is definitely something we'd like too please! Two-way task integration would be ideal, but one-way (i.e. Hubspot tasks -> Outlook or Outlook tasks -> Hubspot) would be workable.

New Contributor

Hello??? 

 

Any ETA here? 

 

If only the Development Team at Hubspot responded as fast as the Sales Team...

Having this feature unavailable is making Hubspots CRM unusable for my team. Extremely frustrating.

+ Vote. We would like to have this feature too.

Agree - would like to see this. When doing a follow-up or assigning a task, I should be able to choose from open slots in my calendar. This seems possible since Meetings work this way. You define a time when you are available and invitees can choose. Tasks, it seems, should act the same way...

Occasional Contributor

This would be a great addition to hubspot as all our staff use tasks for all their callbacks. there is also no efficient way to set a meeting while logging a call whereas tasks can be set while leaving a note while logging a call

@sjudson  after 3 years of asking, I think our company has made up it's mind to leave foe SalesForce. This TRULY IS a dealer breaker as showing tasks on a calendar (whether it be Google or Outlook) is a structure needed for our sales department. It doesn't seem like it would be difficult to create and API to allow even something like Zapier to provide the functionality to allow this process. Too bad, as there is so much work in switching CRM's, but core functionality is just not including some basic needs for businesses the size of ours. Too bad the Dev management at HubSpot aren't more concerned with our requests...

Hey. Sam here.

I'm an application developer.  I'm looking to see if I can solve this problem for the community via a MarketPlace app.

Hey, anyone from the Dev Team visiting the Idea Forum? This is a must! It will help our teams saving a lot of time. Nowadays, they have to add a Task and also add it to the Calendar. Ususally, we find a lot of missing tasks or events not added to Calendar.

We need a single place for our users to view EVERYTHING that they are scheduled.  It is crazy to think that you woud look in Hubspot task list, and then switch to Google/Outlook calendar trying to see what is scheduled.  This makes it difficult to see when you are availble when talking with a client...  "Hold on, let me check my calendar,  oh hold a min more while I look in Hubspot....  Now when do you want to meet..........

 

If there is one major think I would like to see Hubspot address, it is the ability to look in one place and see everything I need to do!  Currently I have three or four different applications / pages that I need to visit.  Help make us more productive!
