Good Morning - We want our sales people to be able to see all contacts but management wants to lock it down where the sales folks can not see eachothers activity inside that contact.  Is there way to do this?

Q: We want our sales people to be able to see all contacts but management wants to lock it down where the sales folks can not see eachothers activity inside that contact. Is there way to do this??

 

Short A: No.

 

Longer A:

Once visibility to a contact is granted there are very few restrictions you can place on further visibility within the actual contact -- i.e., Deal Amount (which actually isn't 'in' the contact record at all).

 

Considering the excellent new HubSpot Contact UI, this is an especially useful feature you might want to add to the Ideas Forum. Let us know here and we'll upvote it for you.

We've got a similar requirement, has this changed at all since the original post? We either want to limit what activities appear with a contact, or not allow different sales teams to view specific contacts but still be able to communicate with them from within a deal...

Hey @cjmil 

 

Thank you for reaching out. I was doing some tests on my own portal and what are you looking to do is not currently possible. The best thing you can do is create a team for those users who needs to reach out to specific contacts from a deal and the owners...

 

Thanks

Sharon

Our Managing Director has a similar request - using Teams won't work, unfortunately. He wants all team members to see the Contact and most things on their record - however if there was a particularly sensitive email that he didn't want all staff to see, he'd like to be able to restrict that email (or note or other record) so just management could see it. This is a really important feature I think, so I do hope they come up with something. Thanks!
