Updating Engagement Association Doesn't update lastUpdated Property


We are using the recent engagements API to sync Tasks. We keep track of the last date we’ve seen so that the next sync we get records that have been updated “since”.

If I go into the HubSpot UI and change the contact (or company, whatever) associated with the task the lastUpdated property doesn’t change so when we sync we are not made aware that the given task was modified.

Is this a know issue? Is there some kind of workaround?


Hi @homerlex,

I believe this is currently working as designed; similar to the ‘Last Modified’ contact property, only changes to properties are tracked, not associations. I can see the use case here; if you have the inclination, I would encourage you to check out the Ideas Forum on the HubSpot Community. I’ll also pass this feedback and your use case along internally to the product team.
