Bulk blocking email domains from forms

Hi there 

 

Super quick question - does anyone know if there is a way in HubSpot for us to bulk block an email domain from submitting forms? 

 

I know there is a way to block domains from individual forms, but surely this is a way to multi select the forms and do it in bulk?

 

Thanks!

Mark

Hi @markjnor 

 

Funnily enough this has never been possible at the portal level, only at the individual form level. Its a useful idea though. I recommend you check the ideas forum to see if it has already been suggested or not. 

 

Hope this helps.

Normally, HubSpot email domain-blocking functionality occurs at the form level. However, we successfully deploy a single 'Screen <select> Email Domains' workflow on portals where the impact to reporting isn't a concern.


The result is a single point of triage for undesirable email domains associated with contacts who can be flagged for deletion either immediately or at a more appropriate time -- i.e., generally within 7-10 days.

From my understanding, no. I asked a similar question to HubSpot chat today. 

 

I am constantly adding domains to the "email domains to block" on forms. We have around 8 forms though that we don't want these blocked domains to complete, so it's very manual to copy and paste each time. I asked if there is a way I can somehow include a list instead of adding each domain to each form separately - or choosing multiple forms at and mass updating. I was told no, there is no way to do this currently. Would be really helpful though!! It's very easy for contacts to slip through the cracks this way.

You would think there  would be a way to block a domain globally on all forms, can't believe there isn't.
