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.

Redesigned Notifications Sidebar

Now in beta is a redesigned notifications sidebar experience that matches the new HubSpot style and introduces new filtering capabilities.

What is this?

When in HubSpot, you shouldn’t need to leave the tool that you are working in to view your notifications. Yet in the previous notifications tool we made you do just that if you wanted to view all your notifications. 
 
The new notification center sidebar streamlines this process within one area that is accessible from any HubSpot tool. The notification sidebar was built with HubSpot’s new design language in mind and now matches other HubSpot products. You can read more about this visual refresh project here. This is a part of a larger effort to give HubSpot a more modern look and feel. Over the year you’ll see more tools across all of our products adopt this aesthetic. The sidebar now also provides full localization for your notifications, so if you use HubSpot in any of our supported languages you will get a consistent localized experience.

 How do I access it?

From any HubSpot tool, click on the notifications icon to the right of Academy mortarboard hat in the main navigation bar; see the GIF above for reference.

Why am I receiving this?
 
We are releasing this new experience to all members of the Marketing & CRM beta groups, as well as select other customers. We’d love to hear your feedback; you can leave your thoughts on the designated feature page here, or reply to the original email you received.
