SalesForce Duplicating Tasks

Occasional Contributor

Have a question regarding a Hubspot campaign and the SalesForce sync creating a lot of duplicate tasks:


Currently, we are working on a campaign (e-mail campaign) for an event. We synced the Salesforce campaign with the HubSpot campaign. We have a problem here, because every time someone opens the mail, it creates a task in Salesforce.


Basically, that is very fine, except someone opened this mail 50 times. Here an example with only 4 times opened:


Is there a possibility to limit the amount of the same task?


When it was opened once, that is basically all we need to know on the Salesforce side. A second or 50th time is not necessary to know.


This happens for both automated and batch and blast emails.


I think this is a HubSpot problem, but if it's something on the SalesForce side and there's direction to be given please let me know, as well.

In that screenshot with the activity history, Salesforce is doing exactly as it is intended to do which is to show all activity.  Personally speaking, I wouldn't recommend showing an email open because people can open an email multiple times.  It's typically a matter of an invisible pixel loading in the email. It may be better to only track emails sent and clicked which shows you 2 things: 1. whether it was received and 2. whether they interacted with it.
