Create a 'Today's Date' field in Hubspot

Currently, you have no date property that tells you today's date. This is genuinely a critical function if you are going to compete with other CRMs. How can a sales team set and keep SLAs if they can only look at the time spent in stage retroactively? Please fix it or bring in a "Today's Date" field so people can work around it using a calculated property and some basic automation i.e.

 

  • Enters deal stage > set date picker to "date of entry"
  • Calc field = time between "Date of entry" & "Today's Date"
  • Report = all deals with "Calc field" >7
  • Automation = id "calc field">7 notify salesperson and manager.

 

This is a huge hole in the system and is going to cost your partner's deals. A simple addition like this would unlock a lot of potential within the system.

Mind blown that this doesn't exist. The absence of this function is all over the "ideas" section, albeit in different posts. I've now spent three weeks working with the support team to attempting to create a workflow that will do this (there is a workflow design posted in the community but unfortunately, it wouldn't work). I am less than delighted that something so basic is not available. Wonder how much time HS has spent in support solving this for many customers over the years - might have been easier to just have the programmers put the function in. I discussed this with my programming team to see if I was missing some complexity that would preclude this. We're baffled as well. I'd be curious to hear why it's not there? It's always tempting to program new things but the basics shouldn't be ignored.

To utilize today's date in a workflow is simply foundational to any marketing automation platform.

Yep. I don't need a today's date field. I just need for the calculation of date to include today's date as an option when picking the fields! I also need it to calculate SLA.

This would really be great to have and such a basic funtionality.

There are at least three different threads requesting this basic feature and hundreds of upvotes, but I can't see any response on any of them from HubSpot. Why?

Hubspot. You have to get it together. Your functionality is lacking in so many areas compared to Salesforce. I am crippled without functions like this. Please actually listen to your CRM driven clients and make updates that get a high volume of votes.
