I’m a developer who is in the process of setting up integration between my company’s app and our hubspot account. The main goal is to be able to track certain events our users are taking within our app and allow the sales team to segment users in hubspot based on what actions users have taken.
Going through the list of API’s it seems that there are two main ways to do this. First would be the Events API. Second would be the timeline API.
The timeline API seems like the way to go but it also seems like it’s overkill for our particular use case. There is no easy interface to set up events and we also would have to set up oauth integration w. hubspot. This is in contrast to other products where you’d normally get a token. Likewise there doesn’t seem to be an official library/framework we can use to make these timeline calls - we’ll have to implement that ourselves.
The Events API seems simpler but is also limited to Enterprise customers. It also seems to be somewhat more constrained.
Before I started working on the Timeline API integration I wanted to make sure I haven’t missed anything and that I’m understanding this correctly. Is there a simpler way for me to achieve what I’m trying to do - namely to get events showing up/associated to our contacts and then do smart lists/segment our users based on those events.
