Initial data import to include attachments

SOLVE

I'm looking for a way to import around 6000 customers each has at least 1 attachment (some as many as 30) these are job packs relevant to each company and we 100% need to keep them.

Is there a way to do this as part of the initial upload of data or is it possible to add them in a mass upload later?

Hi @m13drk,

 

The HubSpot import process does not support attachments, unfortunately. This would have to be approached via the HubSpot API. See these threads:

Thanks Karsten,

Unfortunately I'm not 100% tech savvy, is the API something that needs to be done by a specialist such as a developer? I see you are a consultant is it something you could assist with?

@m13drk this would require a developer, yes. APIs are not an area of my expertise but you can find developers in the Slack community: https://developers.hubspot.com/slack
