Company fields in forms

My company consults with other companies on a B2B basis for training their staff, we build a company profile and an organisational needs analysis (ONA) for those companies to identify their training needs.

 

What I find strange is that we can only create forms with contact property fields and not company fields (Deal fields too). A contact record does not need a "Total company wage bill" property for example, but I'm forced to create one in order to copy the property over to the company record using a workflow. See: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/articles/kcs_article/workflows/choose-your-workflow-actions#copy-a-pro...

 

I'd like the ability to add company fields into a form, to bypass the need to create unnecessary workflows and contact properties. I could see a use for deal fields too as a way to collect order information

 

(I'd be surprised if I was the first person to suggest this idea, but I couldn't find any related posts around the subject. Let me know if this is a duplicate)

I need this too! I want to be able to collect deal specific information via a Form and have it populate  Deal Properties. Since my customers have multiple deals at one time, each with different values, I can't do this from the Contact Properties.

This is yet another OBVIOUS feature that Hubspot continues to overlook. Hubspot is supposed to automate things and make them simpler but I can't help thinking that I spend more time constantly trying to build workarounds to complete what would be very quick and straightforward tasks if HS was listening to its community and building the obvious features that we all need.
