Known issues


  1. Calls dropped while navigating HubSpot website: While on a call, you may notice your call is dropped while navigating the HubSpot website. This is because HubSpot reloads the entire page, including any Chrome Extension, as part of the navigation. Page reloads reset every operation occurring on that page including the BT Cloud Work call.

Workaround: You can redirect calls to the BT Cloud Work App or BT Cloud Work Phone App. Doing so will retain the call in these apps while navigating the HubSpot site. Once the call ends, the Chrome Extension will allow you to choose an outcome and take notes on the call before the call is automatically logged into HubSpot.


  1. Many log notification messages pop for a single text: When the first text using the new Chrome Extension is logged, multiple log notifications will appear. This is due to the Chrome Extension logging the history of your text messages and will only occur the first time.

Workaround: Just wait for the messages to gradually disappear.


  1. May prompt you to create a new contact when the contact already exists: Occasionally, you may notice that the Chrome Extension is prompting you for a name and email address to create a new contact with the number, even though you already have a contact with that name and email. Trying to repeat the name and email and submitting the contact will result in a "Contact create failure". The reason is the index either hasn't completed or had an initial issue with syncing the contact record.

Workaround: By looking up the contact and adding a dot (.) or dash (-) to the number, you can trigger an immediate sync and the contact record will become available and match. Then you will be able to add your notes and call result (call outcome) to log the call to the contact.
