Introducing New App Certification Submission Limits

Starting Friday, March 29, 2024, significant changes will be made to the app certification submission process for app partners. Aimed at ensuring equitable access to certification resources and improving the efficiency of the review process, we're implementing a new policy that limits each app partner to one app certification submission at a time.

What does this mean for app partners?

  • Single Submission Policy: App partners are now restricted to submitting only one app for certification at a time. This policy is designed to streamline the certification process and ensure that each app receives the detailed attention it deserves from HubSpot’s Ecosystem Quality Team.
  • Sequential Submission: Once an app has been successfully certified, the app partner can submit another app for certification. This encourages app partners to prioritize their submissions based on readiness and impact.
  • Canceled of Multiple Submissions: In compliance with the new policy, if an app partner submits more than one app for certification simultaneously, the additional submissions will be canceled in the order they were received. This measure prevents resource monopolization and ensures a fair and efficient certification process for all partners.

What's changing?

  • Submission Process: App partners must now adhere to the single submission policy by only submitting one app at a time for certification. This change is enforced to optimize resource allocation and review efficiency within the certification process.
  • Certification Review: The Ecosystem Quality Team at HubSpot will thoroughly review each submission based on established certification requirements. Successful certification of the app allows the partner to submit a subsequent app.
  • Impact on Redundant Edits: By limiting submissions to one app at a time, we aim to significantly reduce the occurrence of redundant edits identified during the certification reviews. This enhancement will streamline the certification process, benefiting app partners and the review team.

This update is part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and efficiency of the app certification process. We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to submitting high-quality apps for certification for HubSpot’s App Marketplace.
