Field Dependencies for Contact Properties

I would like to set up field dependencies for Contact Properties, to ensure that my Sales/Marketing team are updating contact details correctly.


For example, I would only want certain fields to be editable against a contact record if another field against the contact had a certain value.

Hi all, Jeff from the CRM product team. This is a great idea. We will consider it for the future, but we're not working on it actively today.

Please keep the use cases input coming, we're reading every comment on this thread.

Hey HubSpot community, I'm Jeff from the CRM product team.


I realize implementing this wish has taken much longer than anticipated - much longer than we expected as well. We believe what we're focused on right now is higher priority. Rest assured this has not left our list, and Dylan and I continue to read every comment left on here. No timeline update on this functionality at this time, hope to be back someday soon with more details.

Hello HubSpot Community, 

Thank you as always for your continued feedback, it helps us build a great product.

We are constantly evaluating and re-evaluating our priorities and roadmap to deliver as much value to our customers as possible. Dependent properties are cetainly something we see a ton of value in. Based on the comments and use cases you all have listed, we are reviewing this request and its feasibility among other priorities on our roadmap. At this time I don’t have any details around timing or delivery, but thanks to the comments and votes on this post we’re actively looking into what it would take to solve this problem.

Hey HubSpot Community! Dylan from the HubSpot Product Team here.

I found this post via @ChrisHiggins ' awesome post on an INBOUND wishlist

Transparently, this isn't something you'll be seeing this year at INBOUND. However, I really appreciate all of the input and suggestions on this post thus far. "Dependent properties" as we call them, are firmly on our radar. However, we've identified a few higher-priority improvements to be made to properties before we get around to building dependent properties. 

In the coming weeks, you'll start to see a beta version of properties that will ideally set the stage for us to include "Dependent Properties" in the future. Stay tuned, this is certainly on our minds as well.

yes please bring this feature asap. But please for all kinds of Properties and not only contacts. 




I would love to have this option available for deal properties! Excited to see this come to fruition.






Glad to read that this idea is being developed! Commenting to add an example of one of our use cases:


We log customers' Billing information in HubSpot using several custom properties, where one property is "Billing Method", with dropdown options of "Email", "Post", or "E-document". Each method relies on additional data in other properties in order to successfully bill this customer, such as "Billing Email".  It would be great to have a way to ensure that if Billing Method=Email, then the property Billing Email must be provided.


Hope to see this feature released soon!


Would love to see this functionality on DEALS!


@OvalTricia - 100% agree on field dependency on deals. That would be so helpful.


It should be available across every Hubspot Object Record view! How is this not available yet 🤔

Yes, please! We are migrating from SFDC right now and this would make our UX for our Sales Users so much better. 

I am about to have to create 16 separate Lead Source Detail fields and show them all on the Contact Record...😥

Should be able to say if Lead Source = X, then Lead Source Detail Picklist Options should show as Y....

Quick, entirely unofficial update on this...


I'm a UK-based HubSpot partner and was recently invited to a couple of calls with @shajones and her colleagues to chat about this feature.


For obvious reasons, I'm not allowed to share the specifics of what was discussed.  However, what I can say is that Shay and her team are 100% across the needs and use cases that have been written about here and elsewhere.  This feature has been on my own personal HubSpot wish list for years, and I'm super excited about what I've seen so far. 🤩🤩🤩


Genuinely no idea what the timelines are for this, and from what I've been told it seems that the feature will be rolling out in stages, so you may not get everything you want / need right away.  But rest assured, it's going to be really, really great when it lands.


Great news @Chris-Higgins !


@shajones Is there any update on the 'salesforce-like' dependency properties?
