View created documents in the CRM Card

The CRM card on a deal provides a summary of key details and actions related to that deal, such as deal stage, amount, close date, and next steps. It helps users quickly assess and manage deal progress. Also, within your CRM card, you'll find a Portant Card for running workflows directly within your HubSpot account and viewing your created documents. This card will appear automatically in your CRM once you've installed the Portant App. The installation process is straightforward; refer to this LINK to learn more.

View created documents in the Activity Section

The Activity Feed on a deal shows a timeline of interactions related to that deal, including emails, calls, meetings, and notes. It helps track the progress and communication history for that specific deal.

Open a deal and click the "Activities" tab:

Click "Filter Activity" and select "Portant | Google Docs & eSign" from the options:

Now you can see document creation activities related to the deal:

View created documents in the custom Properties

HubSpot custom properties on a deal allow you to track and store additional information specific to your business or process, enhancing the deal's context and relevance. Portant stores document details on a group of custom properties we add to your deal/contact/company/ticket. You can view them here:
