HubSpot Wish List

View / control for 3rd party apps that are accessing HubSpot

I have set up 3-4 third party programs that are NOT a part of the HubSpot integrations, with two of them being Databox and StartaFire.

Currently there is no way for me to see all the programs I have granted access to within HubSpot that have not been "approved".

Since I was about to go and add the Linkedin/Slideshare integration with my portal, I started to look at the permissions I give to these platforms, and realized I have no easy way to manage this if I have to.

I'd like to see something like Twitter has ( where you can see what programs you have authorized, and have an easy way to revoke access when needed.

Was very surprised to realize that this is not already baked into the HubSpot platform!
