Custom properties for products and line items

Hi,

 

We would like to add a custom property to products called "catalog number" and one to line items called "extra info". After I do this, I am then planning migrate our current list of products into hubspot, i.e. write a script (that uses the hubspot API) that uploads our product list from outside hubspot into hubspot, with the aim that our sales people will then start managing our product list via hubspot.

 

I have a few small questions related to this:

 

1. Is it possible to add these custom properties via the hubspot UI? (e.g. by going to settings -> properties -> create property). If it's still not possible, when do you expect this to be possible?

 

2. More importantly, if I create these custom properties (say, via the API if needed), will I be able to see them in UI (when going to settings -> sales -> products & quotes and selecting a product and when creating a quote and editing its list of products)?

 

3. And a bit of a side question - in the developers documentation, is there a page with the list of default properties for products and line items? I could only find this page: https://developers.hubspot.com/docs-beta/crm/properties, but it only has contacts, companies, deals and tickets.

 

Thanks in advance, Ori

Hi, @ArtelyeInc.

 

Sincere apologies for the delayed response.

 

Custom product properties were released to general production on April 10, 2020. These properties can be created and managed in-app like contact, company, deal, and ticket properties.

Hello @oriyudilevich 

 

Custom properties for Products and line items are yet not manageable via HubSpot UI though can be created and populated via Create a new object property .

 

The created properties will not be visible under HubSpot properties section but can be seen when creating contact lists into HubSpot ( but I think it needs access to paid sales plan ).
For default HubSpot product/line item properties, you can confirm it by trying creating contact lists in HubSpot. They are like this:

Hope it will help.

Thanks.

Dear @himanshurauthan ,

 

Thanks for your quick reply.

 

Is there any estimation as to when custom properties for products/line items will be visible in the UI? They would be very useful for us, mainly for adding these fields (like catalog number of a product or extra info of a line item) in the quote PDFs our sales people prepare for our clients using the hubspot UI.

 

Thanks again,

Ori

Hii @oriyudilevich 

 

Sorry for writing late. Honestly, I do not have any timeline for this. This was proposed in the community few months ago to have this feature included in UI. May be it could be in progress.

@IsaacTakushi any comments here?

 

Thanks.

Hi, @RustamA.

 

Yes, beta support for custom product an line item properties was added last week.

 

If you are beta tolerant and willing to give feedback, I'd be happy to request that you be given access. Are you interested?

@IsaacTakushi yes, absolutely. I've 2 different HubSpot accounts associated with this account. Can I get beta on both of those?
