HubSpot Requirements and Gotchas
The standard HubSpot object “Companies” must be enabled in your instance of HubSpot for the integration to work.
You may run into a connection issue if you delete your HubSpot data source in the Matik app and try to add it as a data source in Matik again.
This can be resolved by going to HubSpot settings > Account Setup > Integrations > Connected Apps, then uninstalling the Matik App. After completing this, you should be able to add HubSpot back into Matik using the instructions above.
