Define our Fiscal Year / Quarters

We have a lot of very nice "This Quarter", "Last Quarter", "Next Quarter" filter functionality in HubSpot CRM....buuuuut, if your Company's Fiscal Year is not the same as the Calendar Year (as many are not), this "Quarter" filter functionality is not valid, and actually becomes misleading (or at best unneeded / unusable clutter in your filters).  You then must go to the "Custom Date Range" filtering functionality to obtain the correct date range.

 

It would be helpful and less misleading to have a Setting to define the organization's Fiscal Year.  Canned "Quarter" filters would fall inline correctly from there.

 

Thanks!

plus 1 this our year is ALSO not Jan 1 to Dec 31... whats the number of comments or thumbs up that gets hubspot to take notice of requests like this?

Another vote for this - an easy coding issue to resolve!

As many have mentioned before me, this is a common scenario and not having this as a standard reporting feature creates a lot of headache for building reports and dashboards. Please resolve this.

Totally agree.

 

This anaylsis is key to any business feeding back forecast info that will be used for planning

Calendar year and quarters only give so much of the picture.

 

At the moment i have a workaorund to this by manipulating deal data epxort in excel with various formulas and pivot tables.

If this was native in HubSpot that would be even better.

My "Year #2 Check-In" on this one.  Bueller?

@Siddall hahaha but seriously adding my +1 again why isnt custom date range already here!

Has anyone found a way of fixing this yet? Surely it's a simple fix for @HubSpot to implement? We are delaying further investment until we know this issue will be resolved, and our directors are now asking us to look at other options.

This is a fundamental requirement for any CRM given the variation in fiscal years across many of our customers. I believe that it would be to HubSpot's benefit to sort this out as a priority as it can often be a dealbreaker for sales teams.

I'm new to Hubspot, and am seaching for this feature... It appears it's not been applied / thought about?

New Contributor

We need this! Our fiscal year is not standard. This would make reporting in HubSpot so much better!

New Contributor

Agreed with fellow commentors. Please add this feature to customize fiscal year. I understand there are ramifications for reports and likley other dependancies, but I would imagine it is the majority of B2B companies who do not have a calendar fiscal year.  

Regular Contributor

Yes!! We need this. Having to deal with the custom date range just to handle standard fiscal quarters is a big problem.

Occasional Contributor

Well should I also say it? Please please please we need this functionality.

I have clients that need this feature added for reporting.  I hope to see it soon!!!

Like most businesses we run and are measured by quarter, which does not align with the calendar year.

Have had to use the Zoho reporting solution to get results we needed, which is sub-optimal from a salesperson's user experience.

Regular Contributor

Any update on this functionality? This is very much needed.

New Contributor

Agreed, we are starting to integrate a lot of the business into hubspot and relying on the reports and our fiscal year runs from June - May.

Occasional Contributor

Any updates?  This is very much needed.   Thanks so much!

I'm on the same boat here, totally agree!
