Did you know that importing contacts as part of an opt-out list does not actually create contacts - it merely updates the email address’ subscription status for your portal on the backend. Thus, it doesn't count towards the portal's contact limit

Hi @JessicaH ,
What a great idea starting this thread 🙂
I will be sharing mine...
Do you know If you have multiple Google Calendars, but want to restrict one from connecting to HubSpot, you can do so in the Google Calendar settings?

Did you know that if you centre a workflow around a date property but then change that date property to a different date, the actions would execute based off of the old date. If you want to base it off the new date, you'd need to have the contact unenroll from the workflow and reenroll based on the updated property.

Brilliant! I didn't know I could do that! I was sending separate emails to keep data analysis separate. This will save me loads of time. Was easy to find. I like that HS is so intuitive, lot's yet to discover for ahaa moments like this!

Did you know that you can use active lists and list membership as a way to get around enrollment limitations for workflows or to improve lead scoring criteria?

Did you know that when you're composing an email from within HubSpot in your browser you can now (this changed in maybe June) select any text and insert a meeting link without changing the text?
For example, if your meeting link normally displays as "book some time in my diary" but, in the context of this email, you'd rather say "find some time for a chat", just select that text, insert the meting link, hey presto.
I was so blown away by this I had to reach out to Support and thank them - I'd been inserting links then changing them for AGES!!!

Did you that you can create custom owner properties in HubSpot in addition to the default "Contact Owner"? Sales owner, services owner, etc.
I didn't know about this until recently.
It's especially useful if owner properties are needed both for user permissions (e.g. which user can view/edit/communicate with contacts in the tool) and for personalized emails from different teams (e.g. automatically populating from name and from email in an email).
I've used this to
a) limit permissions and contact access for regional marketing teams in international companies (using the system default contact owner) and
b) creating a sales owner property for from-rep-email-sends
The steps are explained here: https://www.hubspot.com/product-updates/assign-objects-to-multiple-owners-using-custom-owner-propert...

Did you know that you can’t add the “internal contact record” personalisation token unless the email has specifically been saved for automation? Otherwise, it just won’t appear as an option.

@JessicaH "Did you know that you can’t add the “internal contact record” personalisation token unless the email has specifically been saved for automation? Otherwise, it just won’t appear as an option."
I ran up against this one a while back and it was for sure a, "what the heck" moment! A great one to share here!

Did you know that if you want to leverage Webhooks in a Contact workflow you don't require Marketing Enterprise. It can be done using the workflow extensions API.
This can be useful if you're a marketing professional customer who wants to send data to another system when a specific trigger occurs in the CRM (Page view, CTA click, Form submission etc).

Hi @Bryantworks @Nynke_HM @ojobson @AM8 @MatthewShepherd @Joe-Kelp @GuyTaylor @JanetArmstrong @DAnaGuiloff @louischausse, I just wanted to inform you about this thread. I'm sure you have some interesting moments to add?

Did you know you can connect branches of a workflow together by using "go to other action" and pointing directly to it? It has been a life-saver and reduced the complexity of building out duplicate workflows for minor branches in logic. You can learn more about it here.
Did you know you can rename your branches in a workflow instead of just using "Yes" & "No"? It is a great way to give quick context as to which path a contact will take in your workflow so you can make sure you have taken all paths into account properly. You can learn more about branching here.
Did you know you can test a workflow to make sure it is working as intended? You can select the contact to test for AND have the system send you the emails that the workflow would deliver so you can double check it all quickly. You can learn more about testing workflows here.
As an operations-minded person I can absolutely say, workflows in HubSpot have grown tremendously over the past few years and just get better and better. The HS automation system is the best out there, by far, and absolutely worth the upgrade to Marketing Professional for ANYONE that wants to make their efforts more efficient and streamlined.

Did you know that you can use lists to set up the criteria of contacts you want to build a report for?
Whenever you're having trouble in creating a criteria for your reports, create a list first, save it and then click 'Action'> 'Create a report'.
Your report will be automaticaly filtered based on the list criteria.

Did you know you can use URL query parameters to populate HubSpot form fields? Handy for scenarios such as passing data collected on one page to a form on another page e.g. if a visitor is sent from a product/service page, then populate that product/service into your form on the next page: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/forms/can-i-auto-populate-form-fields-through-a-query-string
Also on the topic of URL parameters, did you know you can use HUBL to dynamically change the text on your HubSpot pages based on URL parameters? Useful for creating paid landing pages where keywords change based on the parameters sent through the ad URL.

Did you know that a Deal in your Deal Pipe needs to travel between the stages otherwise the Reports/Dashboards can't visualize that conversion between the stages or visualize that data at all – so actually you need to move through the stages in this example from Appointment > Qualified to buy > Presentation > buy-In > Contract Sent > Closed Won/Lost. As opposed to going directly from Appointment > Closed Won/Lost skipping the inner stages.
A little something, something!

Here are our Aha moments from our first 9 months of implementing Hubspot.
From our baby HS phase:
Did you know objects (contacts/companies/deals) are separate and so the properties from one object won't show up for the other objects? If there is information in companies you need to inform something for contacts, you might need to create a separate contact property and workflow to pull that information over.
As we grew:
Did you know that subscriptions only affect your ability to send emails to folks (if they are opted out) they do not determine who is sent emails. So if I try to send an email to Sam and Sam is opted out of that subscription type then they won't receive that email, but if I set an email to the subscription type "best friends" and send it to a contact list that Sam is not on, Sam won't receive the email even if they are subscribed to "best friends".
Did you know that you can personalize the properties that show in the record preview pop-up by hubspot users. Your admin can set the account defaults through "records customization and you as a user can personalize the properties that show under the about section through entering the "View all properties" page of an object record.
Did you know that marketing emails can be set by workflow and templated emails under conversations can be set by sequences? Sequences would allow you to customize each email and it might have a better delivery rate since it is coming directly from you. There isn't currently a way to automate subscription to sequences, unfortunately. Here's more on this.
Did you know there is a lot of really good content on youtube that will help you set up and resolve issues in hubspot? Here is one good channel.

Did you know that when using the button module in the drag and drop email that you can use that button to display a CTA?
Did you know you can also use that same button as a file download, schedule a meeting, email address, email subscription, and more?
