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).  

HubSpot updates
Status updated to: Not Currently Planned
Apr 24, 2020

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.

We really need Tasks to integrate with something.  Either a calendar entry in Outlook when due, or sync up with Microsoft ToDo app (which then syncs automatically with Outlook tasks).  This is a must have feature!

I came across this thread by accident but we are working on a tool to sync your tasks and calendar into an agenda so you can plan your day and share your agenda with your team. We are planning to include hubspot tasks as well as others, anyone here willing to join our beta program?

Hi jahson01,

 

Sure, I've stopped using HubSpot because of issues like this, I'd be happy to give it a go.

I've actually already built an app to do this very thing (Syncing a Task created in HubSpot with Google or Outlook Calendar). If you dont mind, check us out at calendarsplice.com and see if it may fit your needs. I've also posted the HubSpot Marketplace listing below.

 

  • We do currently support syncing to both, Google and Outlook Calendar. 
  • Updates made to calendar events will also sync back to their associated HubSpot Tasks.
  • You can also invite your HubSpot team to join your CalendarSplice team as well.

I'd appreciate anyone who can sign up and try it out. There is a 14 day trial period.

Any questions or feedback is appreciated as well.

I am shocked that with all the features of hubspot and the integrations of all your tools into one place, we can't get a way to integrate tasks/ calendars feature.   Meetings are great it sends it over.   But what about tasks.   I cloud, outlook , google, all can sync tasks.   I am stunned that I have to go to outside tasks, and outside calendar to get this done.  What is the point of having to create your tasks in file or say even tickets if it cannot be put on your calendar without having to do it 2 times.   If you had a hubspot calendar that I can add to my phone calendar, please let me know .    I want to be able to look at my watch and see my next task on my calendar.    with my carplay , I want to be able to have my appointments as I travel show up so I can get my next directions with the click of a button or through voice, like every other system does.    The tasks on here are very nice, easy to do and assign quickly , but without the sync, you basically have to do everytihng 2 times.  making this very costly with your time.

It would be a great feature. We will be very happy to see this as an added functionality.

YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE A MORON TO THINK THIS IS NOT A HIGH PRIORITY ITEM.... 

 

WHEN WILL YOU TAKE THIS CRM AND SET IT UP TO WORK AS A CRM???? 

THIS SHOULD NOT BE A THIRD PARTY ITEM BUT CORE FUNCTIONALITY

Occasional Contributor

When I follow up with a client OR prospect I need it in MY CALENDAR. TASKS ARE USELESS....

 

when i used other crm's this was a BASIC feature... no TASKS- only CALENDAR EVENTs/

Occasional Contributor

Wow nine pages of comments and no reply from HubSpot and no interest. That speaks volumes....
