Restrict Editing of Certain Properties and View history of User Edits

Currently if a user has access to edit one contact's property, they have access to edit all contact properties.

 

We have the ability to restrict a user from creating or deleting properties but it would be incredibly helpful to restrict the editing of certian properties.

 

We have employees who need access to edit basic property fields on a contact's profile (name, phone number....etc) however there are other properties we don't want them to touch which may affect conversions, sales, or customer relations - currently we cannot restrict this.

 

What's worse is there's no means of checking (other than one by one contact by contact). It would be helpful if we could run a report that says  Show me every time USER 1 edited the PHONE NUMBER property on all contacts system wide.

  1. Restrict certain users from editing certain property fields on a contact's profile
  2. View a history of when users edit certain contact properties.

This is a MUST! We have integrations and workflows tied to several properties now and humans are just not-to-be-trusted! Hubspot needs to have property-level permissions that the Super Admin only can edit.

Use case: I have two sales teams. One supports the other and needs access to certain properties/data from the other teams records but for security reasons we don't want that team to see things like names and contact info.

Hello HubSpot Community, 


Thank you as always for your continued feedback, it helps us build a great product. We recognize the value that field level permissions can bring and I’m excited to let you know that this is officially in beta for Enterprise users. Our solution will give administrators the ability to prevent a field from being edited by any given set of users or teams. At this point, the product does not allow admins to “hide” values.

If you are interested in becoming an early beta user and have an Enterprise subscription of any account please send me a direct message. Otherwise, we do expect this to be released to all Enterprise accounts in the near future.

@Dylan - is this a feature that has been designed to stay in Enterprise? I.e; this won't be coming to Professional and below level accounts? Do you only need one of your hubs to be at Enterprise level to unlock it?

Regular Contributor

Any updates here? This feature is a must.

Excellent news to report on this front... this is in beta right now! Users and teams configurable visibility for Company/Contact/Deal/Ticket property fields. Thanks for listening HubSpot... this is why we’re all with you. Orange is my favorite color today for sure.

Its a shame it is only for Enterprise. We pay a lot for Sales and Marketing Professional and expect to have this basic feature as well. Really bummed there....

@NCO  contact @Dylan, I hope I tagged the right Dylan (his response is on Page 2).

That response must have slipped by - appreciate it.

This is essential, especially for properties that factor into calculating commissions.
