NEW ON OCTOBER 1, 2020
Since the launch of the CMS CLI, many developers have made the move to local development. However, there are some CMS Hub specific intricacies that make the local development experience awkward.

Video Views on the Contact Activity Timeline
NEW ON OCTOBER 2, 2020
Tracking how customers engage and interact with your video content allows you to better nurture your customers and understand what content is resonating with your audience at every stage of the buyer’s journey. But in the past, it’s hasn’t been easy to track which videos individual contacts in your CRM are viewing. To make it easier to leverage video as part of your marketing strategy, you can now see video view events on contacts’ activity timelines in the CRM. This gives you additional insights on your contacts to better target and personalize their interactions.

Three updates to improve speed and permissions for file management in HubSpot
NEW ON OCTOBER 22, 2020
