How to Set Up HubSpot Auto-Responders

Create a HubSpot workflow to automatically respond to your contact when a trigger keyword is sent to your dedicated number.

Step 5

Note: This step is optional, but we will now turn re-enrollment on.  Re-enrollment will allow a contact to be re-enrolled in your workflow, allowing it to run multiple times for the same contact.

We will now turn re-enrollment on by clicking the Re-enrollment tab and selecting the two checkboxes.

Click Save.
