Why join the Beta Program?

HubSpot beta testers get early access to the features the development team is working on. The program is exclusive - only made up of the most beta-tolerant and sophisticated of HubSpot users. We want to make the software better for you so we want thoughtful feedback on each new release from our testers. How useful did you find it? What bugs still need fixing? What could be improved, added, or taken away?

Keep in mind, this program isn't just a walk in the park. Being a part of the beta group at HubSpot is a commitment. It means you agree to use some software in your daily life that is bound to be a little rough around the edges. It also means you’re willing to take the time to help us smooth out those rough edges. 

How it Works

Step 1
Tell us more about you

The first step of applying to the beta program is to fill out an application that tells our team a little more about you, your company, and what HubSpot tools you're using. It's also essential for us to get a sense of how comfortable you are with buggy software and how often you're willing to provide feedback. 
Step 2
We review your application

We'll look over the applications to determine if the beta program is the right fit. There's a chance that based on the answers given on the beta survey, some applicants may not have quite the level of comfort with buggy software that we’re looking for. To put folks who are less than extremely beta-tolerant into an intensive beta program is just unfair, so not everyone is accepted.
Step 3
You get an answer

All applicants will receive an email back from our User Experience Research team. If we've determined that the beta program isn't the best fit, feel free to respond back to our email with any questions or feedback. If you've been accepted into the beta program, you'll start receiving emails about new beta releases.

CRM Task Queues

Now in beta for your account is a brand new productivity tool in HubSpot CRM, introducing Task Queues. With Task Queues, you'll never let a follow up slip through the cracks. Think of it like a playlist for your to-do's in HubSpot. Just press play and get your work done.

How does it work?

  1. Navigate to the 'Table' view for Tasks in your HubSpot CRM.
  2. Using the “Add a Queue” link on the bottom left side of your screen, create a new queue for a specific category of Tasks. You can base your categories on priority, day, time zone, etc.
  3. Add any set of tasks to the queue by dragging/dropping one-off tasks or bulk-selecting a group of tasks from either the Tasks homescreen or from a view of contacts, companies, or deals.

How do I get started?

  1. To work through a Task Queue, navigate into a queue and press “Start Queue" in the top right corner.
  2. You’ll be cycled through the tasks one by one. For example -
    • If the first two tasks in the queue are “Call Andy” and “Follow up with HubSpot,” you’ll first be taken into the “Calling” tab within Andy’s contact record.
    • When you complete the call, the task will be automatically completed and logged in Andy’s timeline (no need to head back to the Tasks home screen).
    • For the next Task, you’ll then be brought directly to the emailing tab on HubSpot’s company record -- the next task in line.

No more clicking back and forth between the Tasks home screen and your contacts, companies, and deals. Just press play and get your work done.
