Hello HubSpot Community, 


Thank you as always for your continued feedback. It helps us build a great product. We understand that the behavior can be missed, unexpected, and/or unwanted. While the team is still discussing if we should disable the behavior, we agree that a necessary first should be to notify users that this behavior occurs.

Please update - this is resulting in a lot of wrongful data in our database and extra work for our sales reps!

+1, creating an unnecessary extra step for the reps and resulting in accurate reporting data

+1 Agreed, our sales are long term quotes sales process, and having an accidental quote having a close date throws us out by $$$$ thousands on reporting.

The "Close Date" logic definitely needs an update. No need for this take an automatically assigned value, unless it moves to Closed Lost / Won. We would like to be able to create logic to automatically update the estimated Close Date based on where the deal is in the pipeline.

Hi team! Commenting for a customer here

Wondering if there's any update to this?

Even if we can't manually set what the default close date should be (e.g. 60 days from now/ 90 days from now), I feel that the default behaviour should be close date being left as empty.

Thanks!
