Access the Workflow Tool
Log in to your HubSpot account. Click on the "Automation" tab in the main menu. Select "Workflows" from the dropdown menu.
Create a New Workflow
Click the "Create workflow" button on the Workflows dashboard. Choose "Start from scratch" and click "Next." Select "Ticket-based" or "Deal-based" as your workflow type, depending on your needs, and click "Next." Name your workflow (e.g., "Task Management and Collaboration") and provide a brief description.
Set the Enrollment Triggers
Click the "Set up triggers" button. Choose the enrollment trigger for your workflow. For example, you could use "Ticket property" and select "Ticket status" to enroll tickets when they are created or reach a specific status. Set the desired criteria (e.g., "Ticket status" equals "New") and click "Apply filter."
Add Actions to Your Workflow
Click the "+" icon to add a new action. Choose the appropriate action(s) for your task management and collaboration process, such as creating tasks, assigning tasks to team members, or updating ticket properties. For each action, configure the necessary settings, such as setting task details, assigning tasks to specific team members, or specifying which ticket properties to update.
Set Delays and Conditional Branching
To add a delay between actions, click the "+" icon and select "Delay." Choose the duration of the delay (e.g., 1 hour, 1 day) and click "Save."
To create conditional branches, click the "+" icon and select "If/then branch." Set the condition (e.g., "Task completion" equals "Yes") and click "Save." Drag and drop actions for each branch (e.g., "Update ticket status" if the condition is met).
Test Your Workflow
Use the "Test" tab at the top right corner to check the workflow functionality before activating it. Click "Run test" and choose a ticket or deal to simulate the workflow. Review the test results to ensure the workflow is functioning as intended.
