I'd like to be able to use a hubspot workflow to enroll (and trigger) a contact into a sequence in the CRM.
I'd like to execute a sequence we've built in our HubSpot CRM when a contact property changes. eg; when contact property is set to 'X' trigger sequence 'Y'
I hope not. If only available to enterprise customers that would be silly. This is a basic feature that should appeal to customers of every size.
My take on @glencornell's post is that only Enterprise customers will get this functionality in Workflows but both Pro and Enterprise customers will get the lighter version in Sequences. If you watch the video, you can see that the Sequences implementation will support changes to Properties and Deals as triggers, which is what I suspect most people here want. It's not clear if you can use multiple parameters or if you're limited to using only one.
Thanks @netsquire Maybe I'm wrong, but it appears you can trigger a workflow from a sequence, but will you be able to put someone in a sequence from workflow?
If this workflows >> sequences function is only available to Sales Enterprise for BETA, then I can understand that. However, since Workflows is on the Marketing side of the house, surely any customers at the Professional and Enterprise level for either Marketing or Sales (we are currently Marketing Enterprise + Sales Professional) would be valuable enough customers for the full functionality post-BETA. I would hope, anyway... 🙂
It's great to see updates about sequence-workflow integrations. I'd also like to have:
1. A set of workflow triggers for Templates that we use in sequences. Such as, IF contact opened/replied to template A email, then set property value to B. Right now we can do this for marketing emails only, I guess. If I'm wrong could you all please point out if we can do this already?
2. Another integration could be, if sequence open rate/reply rate is equal to or greater than X, then enroll all of its contacts in this workflow while automatically excluding bounced/error contacts.
Yes, this is a feature that is absolutely necessary. Would open up a world of automation capabilities.
I'd like to share some updates on the current beta for Enterprise customers and the upcoming features for Professional customers! A the bottom I've included a view of the designs we are currently planning and working towards for the Professional tier automation in Sequences.
Sales/Service Enterprise feature: Enroll in sequence and unenroll from sequence workflow actions:
Sales/ Service Professional feature: Embedded automation within Sequences settings
Very interested in this idea, looking forward to testing it when it comes out (beta or otherwise)
Hi guys, I'm using this feature now, thank you.
- When you go to create a new workflow
- When you add the "Enroll in a sequence" action
- It asks you for Sequence, Sender, and From email address. Makes sense.
BUT, when you go to choose a Sender, it only gives you a list of named senders. It does not allow you do choose "Owner" or "Contact Owner" or "Deal Owner."
This limits the usefulness of the feature. As you know, sequences are automatically unenrolled when a person either A) replies to a message or B) schedules a meeting.
If all the sequences are sent from a specific named sender, then all of the (possible) meeting invites would reveal that same sender's calendar.
We'd like to be able to choose "Contact Owner" or "Deal Owner." And maybe if one does not exists we can specify a default owner.
@glencornell Thanks for the update Glen. Super excited about this feature - I've been pestering pretty much everyone I know at HubSpot for sequences / one-to-one email automation since you guys launched sales automation way back at INBOUND 2017. 😁
With regards to triggering a sequence via a form submission, will it be possible to make the firing of the sequence conditional on a specific variable in a specific property on the form? As an example, if my form has a dropdown that lists three different products / services, and I want to send a different sequence to a contact depending on whether they're enquiring about product A, B or C, will that be possible?
Thanks again for the update, and really looking forward to seeing this functionality in the wild.
This would be life saving, I can do it with apollo and would love to avoid using a zapier or 3rd party integration to do that.
Nice work @glencornell ! Once you've verified that there isn't abuse happening with auto-enroll, is that something on the roadmap to open up to Professional seats? I'd love to be able to trigger enrollment in a workflow, based on a particular custom property value.
How do we get access to beta?
I was wondering if there is an update on this topic, and on which plans it will be available?
Also, is there any possibility to enter the beta testing ?
Thanks in advance!
@parkerwoodward @rodericks Beta access is dependent on your relationship with HubSpot, I think. If you're a partner, try your CC. If you're a direct customer, speak to your customer success manager.
On availability, there's no official announcement on which plans / hubs will get this, but @glencornell has dropped some hints in a few of his posts back in the thread. Sounds like enterprise (presumably Service & Sales) upfront, with Pro getting a lighter version at an unspecified future date.
Fantastic idea. I have heard about the Beta testing for Enterprise customers and am looking forward to it when it is opened up for Professional customers as well.
@glencornell i requested to be a beta participant some time ago. Is this still a possibility? Also, any news on when this will be released to the masses?
Really glad your team has taken the time to prioritize this powerful feature!
Thanks for this feature. This is a super powerful tool. I learned two things when using this funtion...
(1) When enrolling into a sequence from a workflow, I have to pick the sender name and email for the ssequence. I'd like an option to use the contact owner here so that in the case of round-robin assignment we don't need a separate workflow for each user.
(2) When the sequence emails send, they do not pull in the sender's email signature. I've put in place a "stop-gap" by hard coding a signature in the specific temaplate, but this means a I need a separate set of templates and sequence for each sender. Additionally, if you change this so that the user's email signature is pulled in, it would be good to know so I can update my templates to avoid a "double signature."
Thanks for innovating in this space. This is a really nice function to have.
The ability to enroll a contact into a sequence or set criteria to unenroll contacts, is now live to all Service Enterprise and Sales Enterprise customers! You will see the 'Enroll in Sequence' action listed under actions in Workflows.
We are still working on several related projects that I recommend folks follow, especially if you are interested more ways to set up automation between Sequenes and Workflows.
