To undo an import in HubSpot, there's no direct 'undo' button, but you can use advanced filters to delete incorrect data or import a file with historical values to revert changes. Another option is to contact HubSpot support for potential data reversion.

Efficient data management is crucial for maintaining a clean database.

Enhance your HubSpot data management by automating tasks like syncing and updating records with Bardeen.

Delete Import HubSpot

Deleting an import directly in HubSpot is not straightforward as there's no "undo" button for imports. However, there are workarounds to manage and remove unwanted data.

  • Use the advanced filter to select records from your import file and delete them. This method is useful for removing duplicates or incorrect entries.
  • For bulk reversion of property changes, importing a file with historical property values can help revert the changes made by the initial import.
  • Opening a support ticket with HubSpot's customer service may provide a solution for reverting data to a backup pre-import, although this option might not be readily available to all users.

Additionally, the HubSpot community has suggested creating a static list to identify imported contacts for deletion or utilizing the "Original Source Drill Down-1" property to filter out imported contacts. Once identified, these contacts can be deleted in bulk.

If you've imported a list by mistake and it has created unwanted records, you can delete these records by creating a view of contacts with a create date matching the import date and then deleting them. This method requires manual selection and deletion but is effective for managing incorrect imports.

For ongoing management and to avoid clutter, users have also expressed a need for the ability to delete past import history. While this feature might not be directly available, engaging with the HubSpot Ideas forum and upvoting relevant suggestions can signal to the product team the demand for such functionality.
