Creating a Workflow for Associating Calls to Contacts and Companies

SOLVE

Hi,

 

I would like to set up a workflow that creates a task for myself whenever a new Zoom call gets logged, but I'm not sure which triggers to use. Any suggestions?

 

PS: We need this workflow because when we use a direct Zoom link, our associations on the call are left blank (company and contact). If there a solution to automatically updating associations without calling directly from Hubspot, maybe we wouldn't need the workflow.

 

Thank you!

Hi! Are you using the phone icon on the contact record via HubSpot or calling from the zoom phone app? If you call via the phone icon on the contact record it should do that for you automatically based on the contact being associated to a company (so the call will be associated to the contact and company). With that being said, you would/the sales rep would add their Zoom Phone number to their phone number area in settings within HubSpot. I would normally show you all of this on a step by step Loom video but I’m on PTO and without my computer or I totally would— I’m sorry!

So, if properly set up, the team would use that to call out on (not just adding the number but connecting Zoom and HubSpot with the soft keys, etc).

If they use a cell phone, I would recommend enabling caller ID so that when they call they know which contact is calling their Zoom Phone number (if the two are connected). You do that in your phone settings. Steps for caller ID: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/mobile/enable-caller-id-in-the-hubspot-mobile-app

I know this can be confusing so if you want, I can jump on a call with you next week and walk you through this!

@YGalan - definitely better to use the method Christina outlined going forward to ensure auto association and logging.

For the old bookings/meetings - are these Zoom calls being manually logged by the sales rep? 

You could perhaps use the Activity properties as enrolment in the workflow. E.g. if there is a descriptor in the call title or notes:

I meant when a contact calls them, they know who is calling them (on a cell phone) 🙂

Hi Christina,

 

Thanks for getting back to me! Yep, we already use the call function on Hubspot and it's been associating the contacts perfectly. We'll be using the feature moving forwards!

 

However, because we are only new to Hubspot, we have old bookings/meetings that were set up with an old process (which was to send our Zoom link manually). I'm hoping for these meetings, I would be able to set up an alert or task for myself to manually associate the recorded Zoom calls with empty contact/company fields 🙂
