I've created a custom source field for Contacts and mirrored it in Deals. The reason for this is because the Hubspot default options were too limiting and could not be edited. Now I want to map the fields so when a new deal is created from a Contact the source information is updated within the Deal. My ultimate goal is to map deals to sources.
Is this possible? If not, is there another way to approach this that will give me the same result?
Hi @TarynR The functionality that has been rolled out is the ability to use a contact workflow to copy a contact property value to all of the contact's associated deals, into a certain deal property. From a deal workflow, the functionality is the reverse, you can copy a deal property value to a contact property on all of the contacts associated with the deal.
This other idea is the concept of copying a value inward. So for example, using a deal workflow to enroll specific deals, and then copying an associated contact's property inward to that deal, thereby only updating some of the contact's associated deals with that value. If that's the case, please add your support to that idea! Or if any further clarification is needed please feel free to reach out to me directly
Note that while we're still collecting requests for customers who specifically want to upgrade immediately, we've also started the general roll to all customers. Customers who take no action, will see their contact workflows upgraded to the new tools soon. Please let me know if any questions remain!
Hi @SalesTeamSix Any customer who would like access to this feature can request it by filling out the linked form: https://forms.gle/oUkexNjHvqoKV4Bt7 You can expect access in your account 24-48 hours after submitting the form. Please send me a direct message with your hub Id if you have any further questions or issues getting access for your account!
Hi @AnaGut ! Thanks for reaching out, but no, that functionality is not part of this change. It's not currently possible to use contact/company tokens in an internal email in a deal workflow. I would recommend continuing to follow and add support to the other ideas post you shared, to communicate interest in that feature
On the other hand, you could leverage the expanded property copy capabilities this change does bring, to copy key contact property values from the contact to the contact's associated deal, and then add those deal properties as tokens in an internal email in a deal workflow.
This feature is currently in private beta: Copy contact properties to deal, quote, and ticket properties. As a part of the update, you can also set and clear deal, quote, and ticket properties with contact workflows. This feature will be available as part of a broader under-the-hood renovation: moving contact workflows to our new workflows system.
Fill out this form to request earliest available access for your account, which will happen when we begin public beta, over the course of the next few weeks: https://forms.gle/oUkexNjHvqoKV4Bt7
When access is given, your most recent contact workflows (those created after August 5th) will be moved to the new workflows system, which gives access to this feature and more. To move an older contact workflow to the new system, you can do so by cloning it: every newly created workflow in your account will then live in the new system.
Please note that once you are opted into the new system, you cannot be opted back out. Read about all of the changes the new workflows system will bring, here: A New Engine for your Workflows
Hi @anthonylin & all - Thanks for following up! I assure you we're aware of our customers' pressing need for this functionality. We're going to deliver this feature, and this is part of the team's highest priority project at the moment - we're actively working on it. We hope to deliver this soon. I will update this post as more specific information becomes available.
To follow up to @bmccluskey's observation, this feature will be delivered as part of an overall/ongoing effort to create parity between company/deal/ticket/quote workflows and contact workflows. Contact workflows were built on our original workflows system, and the others have been built on a new, more performant workflows system. We're actively working on moving contact workflows to that same new system, and as we make progress on this project you'll see many positive benefits, such as this feature of copying deal/contact properties in both directions. Stay tuned for more details!
Thanks to everyone for their comments and support of this idea! The team is now actively working on bringing the feature of copying contact properties to deal properties, to workflows. We'll update again, when there's more information to share.
