NEW Created by property

I am finding that records do not have a property that documents which user created the record, only who owns it. This is problematic from a reporting and workflow perspective. I would like to see ALL records across ALL objects include a System property for Created by...even if a deactivated user. Both reports and workflow should have access to this System property.

would also like to see a 'created by user' property. 

 

this is also valuable from a data hygiene perspective.

I'd also like this. At an even more basic level I'd like to see the information that is current on the contact feed such as "This contact was created from Organic Search from Unknown keywords (SSL)" or "This contact was created from Offline Sources from Integration" as a property on the contact. This would be very helpfull.

Hello, I also need this. My users who are used to salesforce are used to something like this

We also need this because we want to run reports on deal creator, not deal owner. Our SDRs are responsible for creating a deal, but the owner changes once it advances to a particular stage. We need to know who created it, as a field. 

I spoke to Hubspot and they don't have a way to extract this information in a workflow either.

This is VERY MUCH NEEDED 

 

This is a common property available in other CRM's and it has a valuable place in data tracking and especially whern trying to sort/clean data. I've worked with your support team and they did their best, but there's no way to track which HS user created a contact. 

 

I thought a workflow + custom property could solve the issue, but it's not possible to have a workflow that inserts 'current user' into a property! 

 

Please make this a priority.

This must be implemented. Currently, I'm doing all the work but another Salesperson is getting all the credit because they are the owner.

I'm sttil confused that something so basic is not available for hubspot users. On a CRM the information of whom created the recorders id needed for a lot of actions. Please make this a priority.

I just realized that this deal property doesn't exsist even though the action is recorded in the timeline. Very weird. 

 

We need this. Please prioritize.

Can anyone advise if this is in the works, maybe in the alpha stage?

As a CRM Admin at my company, knowing easily who is creating what, is a must for ensuring that the users are inputting info correctly. This is definitely a needed property.

Hubspot, please make this a priority. If not, we need to move away from Hubspot within a couple of months.

 

A must need is to understand and be able to run reports on deal creator, not deal owner in a CRM. Our SDRs are responsible for creating a deal, but the owner changes once it advances to a particular stage. We need to know who created it, as a field. 

 

Thank you!

This would be such a valuable tool for not only reporting purposes but training and data quality control as well. PLEASE get this added asap!

Yes! All meta data about creation please!

Created By informs how we report on sales activity, showing how a rep is prospecting. Or the impact of certain team members on the database. Plus of course for traceability and auditing. PLEASE!

Totally agree! There are several ways to bring contacts and companies into HubSpot and it would be nice to know who brought them in or how they came in if from a MailChimp or Constant Contact integration, etc.
