Disable the automatic field for closed date on deal level and disable any automatic field aside from create date on all contact, company and deal level.

Absolutely agree with this comment but also think that create date should be able to be edited.  The ability to customize both create and close dates across all three major sections makes the information more accurate when it comes to analyzing the data.

Completely agree. It is really a pain to have to go in and delete it/change it on new deals. In my opinion, there should be a field for Estimated Close Date, then when the deal is closed won/lost, the Close Date field should auto-populate, but also be editable.

Customized close date and create date would be SO HELPFUL!  We have a 6 month sales cycle and having to edit the close date for every deal is an added step.


Agree with editing the create date as well. Would love to see these changes

Agreed, we're on a 6mo sales cycle as well.

Agreed, this feature needs an update...

I gotta lend my voice to the need for this feature. It also just doesn't make sense regardless of how long someone's average sale cycle is: if a deal is ceated on the first of the month, it defaults to a 30-31 day expected close day. But is you create a deal on the 28th, it assigns a close daye 2-3 days from the creation date. Being able to set up an automatic close date which is 3-6 months out would be a lot more helpful.

I agree this doesn't work with our sales cycle and just takes up space.

For our model the date the deal is closed can be very fluid for months.  There is really no value in projecting a close date.  It would be nice if this date could be default blank until we proclaim the deal closed.

Totally agree - all sales cycles are different, so are close dates are different! Please build this out!

Agree as well! Customly set or non at all
