altering a field upon import

I am wanting to place a value in a Hubspot field when I import a file, in my case, Zoominfo.  The idea is to be able to find all records (in this case, contacts) that were imported from that particular file at a later date in Hubspot.  Has anyone done this?  I thought about using the multiple file import, but am looking for another way.

altering a field upon import

Hi @DGarbarz 


Thank you for reaching out. 


If I understand correctly, your end goal is to be able to filter all contacts that come from a specific import you did in HubSpot, correct? If so, you don't need to create a custom property. What you can do is create a list (Contacts > Lists) then filter by Imports and then choose your import name from the list. 


You can also create a saved filter using the Original Source Drill-Down 2 Property that gives you the name of the import; using the internal value for this property. This will work if the import created the contacts in HubSpot. 


Hope that helps.
Have a lovely day,
