Before You Get Started

To create and execute sequences, ensure your HubSpot user account meets the following criteria:

  • The account has a Sales Hub Professional, Enterprise, or Service Hub Professional, Enterprise seat.
  • A connected personal email address is required. Team email addresses connected to the conversations inbox cannot be used.
  • The account must have Sequences permissions.

Be aware of the limit on the number of sequences that can be created in your account and that any tasks in a sequence will be assigned to the user who enrolled the contact.

Create Sequences

To start creating a sequence:

  1. Navigate to Automation > Sequences in your HubSpot account.
  2. Click Create Sequence.
  3. Select Start from scratch or choose a pre-made sequence template.
  4. Click Create sequence.
1. Navigate to Automation > Sequences in your HubSpot account.
2. Click Create Sequence.

Next, name your sequence by clicking the edit pencil icon. Then, add steps to your sequence by clicking the plus icon. You can add automated emails, or create email, call, or general task reminders. Customize the delay between sequence steps to control when emails and tasks are executed.

Edit Sequence Settings

After adding steps, you can edit the sequence settings:

  1. Click the Settings tab at the top of the sequence editor.
  2. Toggle the Execute steps on business days only switch off if you want to send emails on weekends.
  3. Customize the timing of each follow-up email using the Automated email send window time pickers.
  4. To receive an additional email reminder each time a task is created in a sequence, toggle the Email reminders switch on and select the default time for the task reminder.

Save your changes once you've edited your sequence settings.

Edit Sequence Enrollment Automation

To edit automatic unenrollment triggers or set up workflows for automatic enrollment or unenrollment:

  1. Click the Automation tab at the top of the sequence editor.
  2. To unenroll all contacts at the same company when a contact replies to an email, toggle the Unenroll: All contacts at the same company from this sequence switch on.
  3. To create a workflow, click Create workflow and follow the prompts to set up triggers based on form submissions or page views, and actions such as unenrolling or enrolling a contact in the sequence.

Remember to save your changes after editing sequence enrollment automation.
