How to Filter Contacts in HubSpot

Filtering contacts in HubSpot is a powerful way to segment and manage your database.

View and Filter Records on an Object Home Page

To begin filtering contacts in HubSpot, navigate to your CRM records. This can be done by selecting CRM > Contacts from your HubSpot account. Here, you'll find the home page for contacts, which displays all contact records. HubSpot also allows you to filter companies, deals, tickets, and custom objects in a similar manner. If you're dealing with objects that have pipelines, like deals or tickets, you can toggle between a list view and a board view. The list view displays records in a table format, while the board view visualizes records moving through different stages of a pipeline.

To access a specific view, click on the view's tab. If the view you're looking for isn't displayed as a tab, click +Add view and select from the dropdown menu. You can also search for a specific record using the search box located at the top left of the view.

Filter Records and Save Views

HubSpot allows you to segment records based on the object's properties. To filter by a common default property, click the dropdown menus above the table (e.g., Contact owner, Create date, Last activity date, Lead status for contacts) and select your filter criteria. For more advanced filtering, click Advanced filters. Here, you can add or update filters based on other properties. You have the option to use AND or OR logic when setting up filters, allowing for more precise segmentation.

Select Filter Criteria

Before selecting criteria for your view, it's important to understand how to choose filter options to segment your records effectively. You can only filter by the object's properties on each home page. Depending on the property's field type, you'll have different options to set criteria for that property. Some common options include contains exactly, doesn’t contain exactly, is, is after, is any of, is before, is between, is (not) equal to, is greater than, is less than, and more. Each option allows you to specify how a record's property value should relate to the criteria you set, enabling you to build a view that matches your specific needs.

Customize a View's Columns or Board Cards

To customize how properties appear in list view, click Edit columns in the top right of the table. In the dialog box, select the properties you want to appear in the table. You can reorder the columns by using the drag handle to drag and drop properties. To freeze the first column of the view, ensuring it remains visible as you scroll, select the Freeze column above checkbox. Click Apply to save your changes. For board view customization, click Board options and select from sorting cards based on property values, editing stages in your pipeline, and customizing how cards appear.
