Hatchbuck Automations are a great way to update your contacts and trigger different sequences to occur!


  • Actions can be applied manually from the contact/company/deal tabs.
  • Automated actions (Automations) can be triggered by form submissions, webpage visits, or links clicked within emails. 



Main Actions [view from contact/companies/deal tabs]

  • Update Contact Record - You can update any of these five fields for a contact: Contact Status, Sales Rep, Temperature, Lead Source, Referral Source. 
  • Add a Tag to the Contact - Add any existing tag you have to your contact OR create a new one on the fly (by simply entering in the new tag name).
  • Create a Task - Create a personalized task associated to the contact and assign it to a specific user or the contact's sales rep. This notification will only be received in the "task" section of Hatchbuck.
  • Start a Campaign - Kick off a campaign for a contact. You can skip this step if the contact has already received the campaign previously.
  • Stop a Campaign - Stop a specific campaign or all campaigns running for a contact.

Other Actions / Automations [view from contact tab, campaign step, link click, webpage tracking & online form tabs]
