Having a dynamic 'today' field in the 'Time between' feature

I'm in the process of setting up calculated properties to use the new "time between" feature in reporting, and realized that, in the 'time between' calculations for properties, I'd like to have access to the option 'today,' which would be a dynamic date set as the value of today's date.

That would allow me to track dynamically how long has it been since a deal has been created ('today' minus 'create date' = how far along we are in the sales cycle up till now).

Hi all!

It's Shay again from the Product Manager on the CRM product team.

 

Again, thanks to everyone for taking the time to submit, upvote, and comment on this Idea. We’re still reviewing this idea and trying to determine the best way to implement this in HubSpot. Turns out it’s a fairly complex engineering problem. To better understand all of the use cases for this type of field, we've created this survey and would very much appreciate it if you all could take a couple of minutes to fill it out.

 

Thanks,

Shay

This would be such a game-changing feature. 

Currently trying to calculate the time left on a trial/subscription for each user and this is impossible without the bloated and mistake-ridden workarounds.

Hi all,

 

This is way more confusing that it should be!

 

It's baffling how we cannot report based on a date field matching the date of 'Today'.

 

I'm trying to build a workflow that will trigger when a customer returns a vehicle. 'Return date' is the property. Is anyone able to simplify how i can use the 'Return date' to kick start my workflow? I'd massively appreciate it!

 

I'd even be happy for it to trigger based on it being 1 day out as I'd be able to put a delay in to compensate this.

 

All the best 👍

You can do this, to get you by, but yes this needs to be added: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/CRM/How-to-create-a-Today-s-date-date-property/td-p/389836

Is there any arrival date when this will be implemented?

Our company uses HubSpot and we like it. Their customer service on the
phone has always been excellent. But they seem to have just ignored all of
us on this topic. I've not even seen one response or update from HubSpot.
Maybe I missed it?

YES THIS! This would unlock so much value in viewing how long someone has been in their current stage!

Please, add this. It can't take too long to implement TODAY feature. It's essential to our analysis.

Echoing this idea - it's sorely needed for reporting and making use of the "Time Between" equation. Doesn't make it possible to create our own Days since _________ kind of properties

I've seen this requested by several customers. A today's date property is sorely needed. There is a workaround https://community.hubspot.com/t5/CRM/How-to-create-a-Today-s-date-date-property/td-p/389836 but it's added friction for our customer's exeprience!

Any update on this?

We are considering an option with custom code, which appears to be an action available to us in workflows. Using javascript, our intent is to create timestamp fields populated by our first custom javascript code, dumping the date and time to a field. The second will calculate the difference in minutes between two timestamps, excluding non-business hours. If anyone has any feedback on this idea, please share. Or if anyone has done this already, this group would likely benefit from anything you can share.

Almost two years on from adding my voice to requesting this essential functionality at my old company, it still appears to be nowhere near coming to fruitition so I'm posting again from my new company. PLEASE Hubspot - this should be really basic functionality 🙏
