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

HubSpot Updates
In Beta
September 14, 2023 08:21 AM

👋Hi all! I'm Rachel from the Product team. An update for you  - we are now in private beta for Conditional Property Logic, a feature that will enable you to set conditional logic for enumeration properties. This logic will be triggered when users make edits to properties across the CRM - specifically, in the ‘create record’ form, on the record page, and on the index page. If a property is required, users will not be able to save their changes until the required property has been filled. This feature is available for all Hubs, Professional+ subscription. 

 

Your Customer Success Manager can request access to this beta on your behalf. We plan to move this feature to public beta in the near future based on usage and customer feedback, at which point customers will be able to opt in themselves. Thank you all for your feedback!!

⚠️ UPDATE May 18, 2023: Thank you all for completing the application form! Registration for this study is now closed, as we have recruited the number of users needed for this study. We had a huge number of applications for a relatively small number of spots, and some specific internal criteria for who could take part. If you weren't able to help this round, please keep an eye out for future research studies!
 
Next, we'll conduct that research and use what we learn to build and adjust our proposed feature. Stay tuned for more updates!

Hi everyone! My name is Kyle and I’m a Product Designer at HubSpot. Good to meet you!
 
Some good news: after a really informative beta period, we're working on expanding on this new feature. With these new updates you'll be able to show and require properties related to a chosen option in another field, throughout the entire HubSpot CRM. To make this work, we're trying a more centralized location for managing this logic, which means some fairly big changes to how the feature works.

Based on what I’ve been reading here, I think this would solve many of your needs. But first, we have to test it to make sure it’s easy to use and understand. That’s where you come in.
 
Would any of you be interested in participating in a paid user research study, testing conditional logic settings? In order to ensure that this feature is effective and easy-to-use, we need to test it with you, our users. That will help us understand how well it works and meets your expectations.
 
Session details:
- Participants will be paid upon completion of the session
- Session will require no more than 60 minutes of your time.
- Session will consist of a recorded Zoom call where you’ll complete tasks using a prototype of this new feature
- You’ll be asked to provide honest feedback as you go
 
👉 Interested?  Please sign up using this Google form. If you qualify, we’ll email you to set up a time to talk. Registration for this research study is now closed. Stay tuned for more updates as we learn and build!
 
Once you’ve submitted the form:
If you qualify, you’ll receive an email within the next 48 hours with the subject, “Schedule a HubSpot UX Research Session”. Just pick a time and we'll do the rest. We’re looking forward to sharing this prototype with you and gathering your feedback.

Not Currently Planned

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.

agree this is needed.

Is this likely to happen? It can be done on web forms, why not contact records...?

Tell everyone! This needs more upvotes.

Where are we with field dependencies? Such a fundamental piece of data management. Need it!

valigara

Definitely needed!

F.i. if I select in Contact field "Type" the value "service provider", I want to see in the dependent field "Subtype" the values "legal, accounting, copywriting"
And if I select in Contact field "Type" the value "partner", I want to see in the dependent field "Subtype" the values "industry leader, reseller, governmental"

We need this as well! It's natural to just want to show the most revelant data and strive for simplicity. Very simple example, I want to show state field and require it only for US and Canada and not show this field at all for other countries. Currently I cannot do that...

Bonjour,

 

Tout à fait d'accord, j'ai aussi besoin pour mon organisation d'avoir des champs qui ne s'active que si on sélectionne une option. Cela est très important.

Honestly if I want to put in a region in my city and then the neighbourhood as being a sub-element would be a grand help.Dependencies are greatly needed

I agree, I think it is a must-have. Also for Companie Properties.

This would indeed be a useful logic to add into the properties. Please advise if there are any updates to this?

 

Thank you

yep, really need this!!

This would be extremely useful.  I'm working with a client who will close different service types and dependant on the type this will inform the product types they deliver - it would be great to be able to put this against the deal.

We need this very bad on the deal properties.  If status = x, show the following fields

We're really looking for this! It would help a lot.

 

Now you have no possibility to force e.g. sales team to fill out more information when needed.

This is a must have!  Making fields required after creation is super important.

Is there any updates on this idea? This would round out the CRM capabilities immensely.

Are there any updates that can be provided? Having field dependencies would greatly increase the functionality of the CRM
