Yes, this is an excellent idea! I ran into this as a problem today. We can merge contacts and companies but not deals, so it shouldn't be too hard to implement this problem. 

This feature is so important!

We've been exclusively using HubSpot for almost two years, and this is a constant issue. Deals need to be able to be merged! Before we started paying for HubSpot, we used a free version of another CRM and deal merges were included with that. As a CRM, this is a necessary feature.

Agreed ^ HubSpot can you give us an update where this stands?

Major problem when migrating to Salesforce...all kinds of duplicate deals now. I've had to zero out the amounts and add labels in the Deal names just to keep it all straight. Especially bad because there's no way to map all the notes and attachments over to Salesforce so I need to keep those deals around for historical context in case someone comes knocking.

Needed please. Was an important feature we used a lot on Pipedrive, and it s a loss in productivity not to have it in HS. 

Two opportunities can be worked on by 2 sales rep. Then  merged with one taking ownership, and all deal data gets combined.

Hi @cfleishman, I haven't read all the comments but if you are using HubSpot Sales Pro there is a way to "clone" a deal without an external app. You can use a series of workflows to clone the deal for MRR, with re-enrollment so that as each deal closes it opens up an identical deal in the pipeline at a specific stage. In addition, you can set tasks for this deal - so if you have a 90 day notice outreach you can automatically set the task for this and any additional tasks for each MRR deal.

 

If you haven't already figured this out and want any more information on it you can let me know by tagging a reply in this thred and I'll respond with the information.

@dan_sitton thanks for the info. This is an okay solution for us but not best. We don't use contact owner instead we have different fields for our contact owners because it's possible that we could have five different sales persons for one contact depending on what is being sold. Being able to simply hit a "clone deal" button would allow us to clone all of the information including the "deal owner" versus the contact owner.

Dang. I was disappointed to learn this isn't already a feature. Upvoted for justice!
