Percentage in a Property

eisenbri

Within deals we have to be able to put percents into property fields that read as percents to avoid confusion. For example, when working with partners, they get paid different percentages and this is used to calculate their commission and then final net deal value. There isn't a way to designate % as a number, only as text. Then this can't be used later for calculation. Or it has to be read as a whole number such as 10 instead of 10%. Seems like it should be a simple fix.

+1 from us. We can add currencies, why not percentages?

Similar to us! And on top of this, we have a product based on a percentage of transactions a company does.

Not only very useful but a must in our case. Percentage as a field type with a % format but number value for using in calculated fields, i.e. 50% = 0.5

Just searching for a solution to this. Wanted to added % custom property so we can include it as part of a calculated property. Definitely a must.

Totally agreed.  Had to do a workaround in a calculation and add /100.  Totally weird to have to do it.

% Probability x Revenue = Forecasted revenue should be how it is but:

50 probability x Revenue and it multiplies it by 50 so I have to add a /100.  O_o

Definitely a must! Seems strange that HubSpot has a default Percentage field but doesn't let us create a Custom field of the same type...
