Hello HubSpot community, 

When combing through this idea, there are 2 main themes. One of them is to clone the contents of one deal to create another, the second is to merge two existing deals together. 

For those interested in merging two existing deals together, I'm excited to let you know that we've heard your feedback and have launched the ability to merge deals. Here is a Knowledge Base article that describes this new functionality in more detail.

I used an automation tool (ZAPIER) to "clone" a deal. 

We add another Deal Stage called "CLONE ME" exclusively for Cloning. So once you update deal stage to "CLONE ME", it will trigger the tool to copy the value of your updated deal then produce new deals with the copied data.

SUGGESTION: Be able to copy an exisitng deal and create a duplicate deal. 

 

REASON: in a B2B environment we often create multiple deals for the same company. A majority of the time, only a few properties change (Amount, Close date, Descritpion)

 

I think this should be an easy option where the user could select CLONE DEAL and be forced to upate the Deal Property

 @Goohlay, thank you so much for sharing your solution. We are also trying to clone the deal with Zapier however we do not find the copy value. Is this happening on Hubspot or Zapier? Is there an additional step we're missing on Zapier? At the moment we have the triggers "deal entered a new stage" and  "create a new deal" but are unsure of where we can get the step to copy the data.

Just to pile on - I want this too!

We desperately need this as well!

To be more precise, creating a new deal and associating it with the company and contacts in zapier is not really enough for us. We need to copy all activieties (email history and notes) to the newly created deal as well!

@Bahar, you need to set the custom value of each field for the data to be copied.  See the step by step set-up of our zap.

1) Basically our zap, will be triggered once deals stage has been updated to "CLONE ME" stage.

2) I created a filter wherein the app will only clone deals with "CLONE ME" deal stage. (Please note that the alphanumeric value is the internal value of "CLONE ME" stage):

3) Set to create new deals then manually set each field and its customized data:

4) This is just optional though. Add another action by sending email notification to Hubspot Owner with the link to the newly "Cloned" deals:

BTW, we've tested the bulk edit and updated multiple deals. It cloned all deals with the updated deal stage Smiley Happy You can literally clone 2 or more deals at once.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

 @Goohlay, thank you so much for your detailed explanation! We ended up doing the same thing, but it is not really clonning the deal. We are basically creating a new deal, and mapping the properties. So we still miss the activieties (email history and notes)!

Definitely need this feature to clone a deal.  We use a separate pipeline to manage contacts (which could be done as a native object in Salesforce).  When a deal goes to closed-won in our sales pipeline, we need to duplicate the deal as to create a contract for it.

This is really basic CRM functionality that we need desperately

This is a request that has been going on for over a year now... HubSpot, this is a MAJOR pain point for us. Please update.
