HubSpot integration: Troubleshooting and FAQ
Troubleshooting integrations can be a little tricky when you don’t know where to get started. Should you be looking for a setting in Typeform or in HubSpot? Read on to find out how to fix some of the most common issues when setting up our HubSpot integration.
- Why does the HubSpot Source show "Direct Traffic" when contacts are created?
Is there a guide to setting up the HubSpot integration?
Yes, check out our step-by-step guide here.
Why are new HubSpot contacts not created?
If you see that no new HubSpot contacts are created when testing the integration, try to rule out the following two issues before further investigation:
1. Using the same device while testing the form.
There is a cookie in your device or browser that detects existing users and updates HubSpot contacts. For example, if you submit a form with one name, and then submit it again with another name on the same device, the existing HubSpot contact will be updated, but no new contact will be created.
2. Using an email address that has already been added as a HubSpot contact.
In this case the existing HubSpot contact will be updated with new information (if any), but no new Hubspot contact will be created.
Why does the HubSpot Source show "Direct Traffic" when contacts are created?
This happens when the UTM parameters in the URL of a typeform response are missing or incorrect.
Whether you've shared your typeform using a link, or embedded it on a page, you must make sure that the matching UTM parameters are included in the URL.

Why is HubSpot chat showing up in my typeform?
You’ll see a HubSpot chat appearing in your typeforms if the chatflow feature is turned on in your HubSpot settings. To disable chatflow, go to your HubSpot account and follow the instructions in this HubSpot guide.
Make sure to disable HubSpot chatflow before connecting your typeform to Hubspot. If you’ve already connected your accounts, you can disable the chat option by following the instructions in the targeting section of this HubSpot article.
If you can still see the HubSpot chat box on the Typeform container, try deleting the HubSpot integration, and connecting it again.
If none of the above methods worked, please reach out to HubSpot’s support team.
Why is there a HubSpot popup in my typeform’s start screen?
If you’ve created a pop-up in your HubSpot account, it will appear on your typeform’s Welcome Screen after setting up the integration.
You can use the inspect element tool in your browser to check for the HubSpot popup in your website code:
To disable this pop-up, go to your HubSpot’s account settings, and follow the instructions here.
Why are no properties updated in a HubSpot Form submission?
In some cases, you’ll see a “no properties updated” message in your HubSpot form submissions, like in the screenshot below:
This might happen when the only response submitted to a typeform is to the Email question, or if the answer to other questions matches the exact values that are already in the properties of the HubSpot contact.
Does disconnecting then reconnecting the integration generate a new Hubspot form name?
Yes it does! Each time the integration is connected, it generates a new HubSpot form name. You can see some examples of these form names in the screenshot below:
HubSpot form names are unique identifiers that can be used to set up workflows in HubSpot. These names change when the integration is deleted and reintegrated, which can affect the workflows you’ve set up based on name triggers.
Does typeform collect IP addresses?
Typeform doesn’t collect IP addresses, but you can use Hubspot’s tracking code to collect this information. You can find out more about creating tracking URLs in HubSpot here.
