Unique identifier for Deal records
This is database common sense - any object needs a unique identifier. We are not the only ones having issues with this lack.
This would help in a lot of ways:
- Allow other systems to identify the correct Deal - prevent duplicates. This is a huge miss, and a major block preventing us from utilizing HubSpot's CRM at all.
- Enable quick and definitive searches.
- Enable accurate reporting. Even if we were to do our reporting outside of HubSpot, this is needed to link Deals to any other object, like Contacts/Companies/etc.
