Hello HubSpot community, Smiley feliz 

Thank you all for your continued input on this idea. I'm a product manager on our CRM team and wanted to provide you all with a status update here as the status of this issue is a bit complicated.

For starters, @JoeMayall recently made an update to the core idea. There was a technical error on our end that increased the number of votes on this issue by about 300.

When it comes to cloning deals, we hear you! We've been steadily looking into all of the context provided here and its clear there is product pain in a few areas.

Recurring revenue - the ability for HubSpot to support a recurring revenue model can be painful due to the fact that deals need to be re-created month over month, or quarter over quarter.

Saving reps time - sometimes deals are created that are very similar to a previous deal and the rep creating the deal wants to use the same data. Re-typing this data is inefficient.

Regarding recurring revenue: We're currently working on several aspects of the product that will help recurring revenue models. This includes invoices, reports, and even forecasting.

Regarding saving reps time: Our entire product is shaped to help you grow better. When reps are doing duplicative tasks, this slows you down and hurts growth. However, different businesses have different needs around "cloning". Some want just the deal name, others want the same deal amount, others want to copy the entire contents of the deal (including activities and emails), some want the deal to be included in the same reports as other deals. Since there are such vast requirements amongst our user base - this would inherently create the need for "settings" to allow admins to choose exactly how a deal cloning would work.

Both of these things are goals that we have our eye on. The problems that are expressed here are likely to be solved in many ways. There is not a "clone deal" silver bullet. We plan on working continually towards solving all of this pain, every day. However, at this time we do not have immediate plans to build or launch a "clone deal" button and have our energy focused on solving other problems that help our customers grow better.

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.

Our sales team needs this ability too. Duplicating some deals that call for it would be way more efficient then the current situation. This duplicating of deals is determined by the Sales rep and a workflow is not the solution as it isn't a cut and dry trigger for enrollment into a workflow. We simply need to have the ability to hit a button to duplicate a deal and update the close date and other info as needed.

 

Again, a workflow is not the solution for this. I saw a 'solved' idea that claimed the workflow resolved it. That isn't the answer to this issue. Take another look at the request!

Agree! Us too!

This idea was submitted over a year and a half ago with no response from Hubspot.  Any idea when it will be made a reality?

 

Is there any reason that it hasn't progressed at all?

It would make the sales team's life way easier if this feature was in place.

Glad to hear it's in the works!

This would indeed be a useful feature. Especially after a data migration, allowing for a quick implementation of Hubspot without spending too much time on checking whether you're deleting the right deal.

YES! Please make this a priority!

Sad to see this doesn't exist yet especially with so many requests over two years. Would help us a lot too.

Colaborador Iniciante

This is an awesome idea and needs to be in place. When I used to work in my prior companies, we were able to duplicate deals. 

Colaborador Iniciante

UP yes plz

Colaborador Ocasional

We would love to use this as well. Especially because some steps of the pipeline are synced automatically with our ordering tool via API and some steps are not.

Totally agree
