With Sherlock Actions, you can trigger an event to post on the Hubspot timeline of. a contact or company. These events will be posted when one of your users or accounts meet the trigger criteria of your Action. You can then use these timeline events to initiate other workflows in Hubspot.

2. Set a Trigger

3. Select Hubspot

4. Select the Task Action, select Add event.

These timeline event can then be used in segmentation or in workflow automations in Hubspot. They will show up as Sherlock: Subject Completed Action (for companies) and Sherlock: User Completed Action (for users).
