Receive notifications from HubSpot

Objective

The tool being so huge, the possibilities with HubSpot are almost unlimited. In this guide we will work on sending a notification when a user finishes filling out a HubSpot form. Of course, this guide is just a rail to guide you, feel free to take liberties.

HubSpot workflows, the perfect tool to interact with Hook.Notifier

Workflows are a set of tools that allow you to trigger automations based on events taking place on HubSpot, such as when a user performs a conversion, a form is submitted or someone interacts with an ad.

All or part of this guide may be subject to a HubSpot pay-as-you-go plan, so feel free to inquire as to your needs.

1. Creation of the form

We have created a simple contact form, any type of form would be fine.

Our simple form

2. Creation of the workflow trigger

Go to the Automation > Workflows menu and create a workflow from scratch. In our case we start with an empty template from the Contact enrollment type because we want to receive a notification when a user fills our form.

Click on Set up triggers, all kinds of triggers appear, in our case we choose Form submissions then we select our form.

Finally HubSpot wants to know if we should trigger on all pages or on specific pages depending on where you put your form. We will choose all pages to simplify the process.

So we have our trigger! Rather simple, but effective, we do not dwell on all the options, because HubSpot is not stingy. Be curious!

Add a step to your workflow by clicking on the +, select Send a webhook and the POST method.

Let’s move on to your webhook, you can prepare your url with our pre-composer, you can find it on our website, create your notification and copy the pre-composed link to paste it in the Webhook URL field.

Do not select authentication.

Regarding the request body, you can choose to integrate all the data in your notification or customize it. HubSpot is very, very, very talkative about data, we advise you to customize the fields integrated in the notification body or to add the preventData parameter to your configuration.
