Mandatory fields on imports

It would be great if we could choose which fields are mandatory for importing contacts (initially), in addition to those that are already pre-defined in Hubspot.

Agree! Even if its first/last name, email and type - it's killing me that people can upload thousands of garbage contacts.

I think it is critical that required fields are respected too during an import. Otherwise, this can be a potential cause of dirty data.

I totally agree! Please this should be basics in HubSpot. It really does not make sense to upload contacts without an email address.. but some people still do this, regardless how often you tell them not to do.

For an enterprise-level organisation, this is mandatory, because it would allow us to ensure nobody ever imports data that cannot be immediately attributed to a specific team.

Upvoting this as it would make it easier to ensure quality leads are uploaded and emails are important to deduplicate contacts

Agree! It makes completely no sense to have mandatory fields for creating contacts directly in Hubspot but its possible to import contacts without any information through a 3rd party tool like Lusha!
