Allow creation of datetime field from Contact Property area (not just API).

AJLaPorte_diagr

There are many times when a datetime field can be beneficial for use in the contact properties. There are currently a few fields (HubSpot defaults) that contain this data but you cannot create a custom property for this kind of data through the editor screen.

Allowing this would help with building more precise workflows when it comes to email sending or time-sensitive emails like drip campaigns from workflows.

According to the doc: https://developers.hubspot.com/docs/methods/contacts/v2/create_contacts_property , we can create a custom property of data type 'datetime' but the field type can only be 'date'. And when you create/update a contact  by specifying that custom property value say '1569925412000'(which is UNIX timestamp of Oct 1, 2019 6:23:32 AM in millisec) and then fetch contact info, you'll indeed find that property value is '1569925412000' but in the Hubspot UI, if you go to the contact and view this new property value, you'll only see '10/01/2019' which is because we've set the field type to be 'date' as we have no other suitable option.

It would be great to track our tasks, so when finishing one I could type in the time I needed so that helps us as Support / Customer Success Team to see how long certain tasks take us and how much workload we have as a team, also to give the management the insights and to optimize processes that take to long.

Oh yes! A must need. Sadness for all of our team unless this is deployed!

This would be very helpful for us, as it would allow us to trigger different actions for support issues raised off-hours, cutting down our response time.

The ability to create a custom "datetime" field would be very beneficial; right now we can only create a "date."

Agreed. It doesn't make sense to me that we can't use an existing data type for our own custom properties. Some of these fundamental missteps with data types and transformation are so odd. HubSpot shouldn't purport to offer an "enterprise" platform when it's riddled with very basic issues like this.

Agreed! We would love to be able to copy a Date picker field from the contact into the Deal using a workflow.

I have no idea how this is not a feature still. 

I simply want to create a funnel to see if someone downloaded a lead magnet first and then converted or they converted and then downloaded. 

This feels like it's a core functionality that is sadly missed p to today still.

This is a real need. It's blocking me from moving my Sales Process to the Hubspot CRM.

How does this only have 52 likes. This a date and time field is such an important criteria for so many applications in automation.

Hi all! Jeff from the HubSpot CRM product team.

 

DateTime is absolutely part of the properties story for HubSpot in the future. We have some product and technical challenges to work through still, so no firm promise on timing, but will keep the group updated as this functionality comes along.

Would love to see this. You're already halfway there - the time is being captured in the date picker property, it's just not being displayed. Please add this!!!
