Custom Fields to Products

Right now, the products feature only supports 1) the product name, 2) the product quantity, 3) the product cost, and 4) recurring or fixed price.

 

It would be incredible if I could associate custom fields with products. In my world, I need to be able to add things like Unit of Measurement (which, could be a drop-down feature).

 

This would make product reporting amazing for my company.

I agree - Need to be able to add unlimited custom fields. It would make this feature so much more functional.

Top Contributor

Agreed - It'd be great to remove the 'Products' field from the create deal form as well, at the moment it's a default field.

This would be critical for us to adopt Hubspot as our CRM - which we're currently reviewing

Hi everyone! 

It will be grat to see HubSpot allows us create and pick properties for products. This will be a easy way to keep the products organized by brand or solution.

 

Do you know if HubSpot is working in something like this?

New Contributor

I completely agree! It would be extremely beneficial for us to have the same sort of customer property  and customer form functionality that lies in the contact, company, and deal screens.

Occasional Contributor

We are setting up the Ecommerce Bridge API and the lack of a list of all Product Properties is very frustrating. We need at least a way to see the product properties we have to work with.

Occasional Contributor

One problem we have in our company is keeping a really nice product database. We were talking today and what we really want is a database for products that is extremely similar to how your contact database is structured.

 

I know Hubspot is not an ERP solution, but this may be a great feature to consider since you almost already have an exact system built.

 

We use our product catalog to 

  • Create line sheets, catalogs, and order proofs.
  • Our sales team constantly sends product photos.
  • Get pricing
  • Determine deal lead time
  • Determine deal profitability

Features that would be nice

  • A database similar to contacts ( Structured fields with a schema like formatting )
  • Ability for custom fields ( We could store additional details, pdf sheets, approval documents )
  • Store images ( great for line sheets )
  • Exporting ( Import it to accounting software )
  • Ability to comment other team members ( Hey, this product description is off )
  • Lots of numbers, SKU's, barcodes, GTINs, and more ( great for opening more channels quickly with accurate info )

 

Just wanted to pass along.

We would also need to add customized fields to the product entity. We cant treally use the product feature without the capability to add custom fields.

New Contributor

Also it would be very helpful if products can be adapted as part or workflows. Currently products are not part of workflows at all.

Occasional Contributor

we want this too. 

Occasional Contributor

We want this too!  We want to add items like a anticipated product delivery date and a GL Account code or financial category.  Additionally, need all of these fields included for reporting with deals and ability to export information.

+1, without custom product properties it is very hard to integrate products properly.

 

Also we would need computational properties in quotes (discount tiers as product property that can then be conditionally selected in a quote).

New Contributor

I agree, as a real estate busineess we would like to attched custom fields to each product (8 - 10 fields) so that we can sort by different variables

Please let us know how soon this can be done??

Esteemed Contributor

Wholeheartedly agree. We use PandaDoc now and it gives us the ability to itemize certain products since each of our products can be customized to the likings of the Customer.

 

Product A:

Item 1

Item 2

Item 3

 

Product B:

 

Item 1

Item 2

Item 3

 

That way the customer can see what goes into a system and not just the product itself. Quite important in our world. At this point in time, we have no use for either add-on Smiley Sad

New Contributor

This would be great!

Occasional Contributor

Couldn't agree more. Right now we can not incorporate HubSpot due to the lack of info we can store about products. 

It would be great if there was similar product database like the contacts one. I am talking about ID's (maybe barcode), SKU's, some kind of pricebooks, our costs and definitely custom properties. What a shame. 

New Contributor

It would be awesome to add as many fields as we want. I want to get the MKT Pro, but as a B2B company, having limited products fields is holding me (and my boss) back.

Regular Contributor

This would be very important to us as well. Please rush this!

The fact that Sku is not already built in to this solution for products is a major painpoint and I'm personally concerned that this was not a field included from the get-go - what companies don't use unique identifiers for their products?  Why wouldn't this already be a property for a product?  As it stands now, even with setting up Sku as a custom property, not being able to view or modify this value directly through the interface, and additionally not being able to search by a custom property field, is a major fail - the sooner that custom properties are added to the interface, the better.
