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.

 

Thanks!

Steve

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.

@shajones  Any update on this feature?

This would be very helpful for us...

Crazy that this "idea" has been submitted in 2017, and a SaaS does not implement a basic feature like this for five years. Other CRMs with less cost have it.

Any updates on this? This feature would be extremely valuable. 

 

Thanks!

Having field depencies on Deal Line Items would also be incredibly helpful. It will allow for much more flexibility for our team who has multiple products to sell that require different information to execute.

Any update on this?  Would love to know if it's out of review and in Dev't!

Had a meeting with Product team about this yesterday (PM and Designer), so
they are on it. No indication of timeframe for beta or wider release, still
seemed quite preliminary unfortunately.

Would love to see this implemented! Specifically, we'd use this in deal properties, where it would only show certain properties based on selections for the type of deal they're working. For example, we have some software subscriptions that would have ARR / deal terms attached, and other deals that would just be one-time project fees. Our Sales people get confused when they see a list of fields that aren't applicable to them, and being able to only show what they need would be SO helpful for adoption.

Any updates on this? This is extremly important for HubSpot users. I see so many use cases for this and Enterprise customers can't live without this feature. 

 

One of many is that companies have a dropdown for closed won/lost reason (Tracking reasons for winning/losing deals). Text is good to have but analytics wise quite impossible to follow. So having an option in a dropdown that states ''Other'' and when chosen the user would have to write the reason. 

 

For global companies this is a must have feature simply for segmenting their customers based on country/region. 

 

Really hope to hear some news regarding this soon.

Hi @jschmid !

 

It is great to hear that you are working on it and hope we do not need to wait to much to have it online. It would be important to have this feature not only for contact properties, but for all subjects (tickets and deals). I believe the use case is valid for all subjects.

 

Thank you in advance,

Victor

@shajones Wahoo!!! Best news. There are tons of situations where this is necessary. I can't wait until this is in beta.

This would be VERY helpful for us! 

We have a "Contact Type" field with options for Prospect, Client, Industry Contact, etc, where Industry Contact is essentially a referral partner. We would like to have a dependant field for "industry type", i.e.: Broker, Attorney, Staffing, Consultant, Other, that is required and preferably automated when "Industry Contact" is selected. This will enable us to create lists we can use for sales or marketing campaigns with specific messaging that is targeted by the referral partner's industry.

Can you provide us with a rough estimate of when we can expect this feature?
