Remove the automatic "New Deal" from deals

When creating a deal from a contact record, Hubspot will automatically title it as the Company Name (great) and add "- New Deal" on to the deal name as well.   There is no way to configure the system so that it does not automatically do this.  

 

As we like to keep our company and deal names the exact same for uniformity, automatically adding the "New Deal" is something we are constantly having to delete.  I don't undertstand the reasoning for doing this as you can just runa filter if you want to see when a deal was created.  If you don't manually edit, then you can have a 3-month old deal that is titled "new".

 

Thoughts:

- Just use the company name for the deal name if auto-populating.

- Allow us to specify a property field/token for the deal name

- Allow for custom copy for adding additional language onto an auto-pop deal name

Yes, remove it! I have to delete the text every time and luckily I am creating a lot of deals Smiley heureux

Yes, the default text serves no purpose and we always end up deleting it here. 

 

Best case, it's a small waste of time for the sales rep...worst case, all that time adds up and keeps the rep from actually *working* their deals Smiley heureux

I agree 100%! 

 

The default "New Deal" serves no purpose at all. Please think about the removal of the text.

 

Thanks!

No response here from Hubspot. Another example how this system is bereft of simple logic in so many places.

 

Please remove this ASAP. It has absolutely NO value whatsoever, all it does is create work. Whoever coded this must have been a few branches short of a tree.

I would also like to see this setting turned off. Please work on removing this.

Please remove this feature! Our company removes the "New Deal" appendix but obviously we don't get them all, which leads to confusion when a deal is no longer new.

We echo the desire to have "New Deal" removed when creating a new deal.

How many do we need to get Hubspot to action this? Do we need to start a petition?

Upvote for this idea. @hubspot any update?

YES! This serves no purpose! I have to remove it EVERY TIME I create a new deal and it's getting OLD!

Coming up on our 2 Year Anniversary for this Idea!  Still having to delete that no-value-add text with every new Deal... Robot triste

It doesn't look like this is going to be addressed, but I'll chime in/bump it -- my VP of Sales and CEO both wanted me to find a way to remove it as some of our task automation is customer facing, and in the VP's words "Having customers see a '- New Deal' tag comes off as tacky, and we should avoid that."

I'd like to see this feature toggleable as well -- it should be a pretty simple fix to just not have it concatenate onto the name of a deal.

Please fix this Hubspot. I can not imagine your own sales people are not annoyed by this...?
