Have a sequential deal number created each time a deal is created

This would essentially allow us to create a unique job number with each new deal. It would be so useful and would then be used as the root for a whole range of quotes and orders.

There is a similar request here https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Deals-Automatically-Associate-A-Consecutive-Number-To... which is marked as resolved. However this is NOT true. The problem solved is a unique ID to avoid duplication, NOT a sequential 4/5 digit number increasing with each new deal created.

 

I really would like a sequential , human useable number to be generated with each new deal within a range of contexts i.e. across company or within a given pipeline etc.

I'd like to be able to set the seed number i.e. a 5 digit number starting 10000.

I'd definitely want the number to be available to add to the deal title when it is created.

No, something really simple that they have been pushing to the bottom of
the list.

This would be a VERY helpful addition. It's one a the few things our team still has to do manually with an excel sheet.

Ive heard this so much from several companies. But we still can not manage
to get HubSpot attention.

I don't understand why this isn't done. I would need it for several objects (standard and custom) not just deals.

I dont even know what else to do, but it seems that we haven't been able to
catch their attention, i am already looking into other CRMs with more
flexible features.

I too am looking into alternatives. They just do not listen.

This is so frustrating. I've cancelled my Pro renewal this year, in part because of basic missing features like this.

Us too, we recommend to use Odoo so many functionalities for less price.

I honestely can't believe HubSpot does not have the option for an incrementing number sequence for Deal ID Numbers. We often have multiple open deals for the same customers and we need to be able to differenciate between the different deals.

I was told by my Hubspot rep this was available when I purchased a month ago now being told that it will require another upgrade to Operations Hub, this is basic functionality that even ZOHO has.  We were also told we could make simple changes to the quote layout, now it wll require a developer and more $$.  Getting frustrated.

Hey! Matt from Unmatched here.

 

We've built an app for this! Sequential does exactly what you're looking for, it adds a sequential number onto a deal when it's created (or whatever your workflow criteria is).

 

Here's the link to the App Marketplace Listing.

 

Enjoy! Any questions, please reach out to me on LinkedIn or via our website.

I have a client expecting this as standard after agreeing to migrate from Dynamics. Now having serious questions. They need it to integrate with their other systems.

 

I'm interested in the solution from Matt above so will look in to that.

Matt - Perfect. Well done. A very simple app and nicely executed. Does what it says on the tin. I will now share this with a number of our clients!

It's good to see that there is a solution with the Sequential app integration from Unmatched.  But what about those of us on Sales Hub Starter package (workflows not available on this subscription)?  We are stuck with no simple solution to generate sequential IDs.  Sooooo frustrating!!
