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.

View a click map visualization for links clicked in your emails

One important way to determine how well an email is performing is looking at the links clicked within your content. Now in beta is a new way to view click performance on the email post send screens. In addition to the ranked clicks graph, you can also now view performance in a click map visualization, showing click rates for links as they appeared in your email. 

What is it?

Open up one of your recently sent emails and jump to Performance > Clicked. Below the list of 'Clicked Links', you'll see a new section for the 'Click Map'. Note: this is only available for emails that were sent after August 4th.

Hover over one of the click rates to see the number of clicks and the URL. Your 3 best performing links will be indicated by a number next to the click rate so that you can quickly see your top links at a glance. 

This new feature allows you to gain more insight into the effects of the layout and positioning of your links on their performance, in addition to the actual link content.
