Update/Overwrite/Append Data Options for Contact Property Fields
Basically for each property I want 3 options to choose from: 1) Update value if blank 2) Append to value 3) Overwrite value
Sample use case(s): Append Option: Notes Field I have a comments field on my contact form where someone sends us a query. If that contact later submits another query I don't want to lose the previous info from my records. I want to see the new information appended to that field. (Can't keep creating new properties and using smart properties).
Overwrite Option Standard as happens curently with most fields, if a contact enters a new phone number it overrides the previous data to keep it updated with the latest information.
Update if Blank option - Lead Source When a lead comes in, I assign the Lead Source to it, but I only want that updated if there is no previous Lead Source assigned to it. I don't want subsequent forms to overwrite the value. Smart Field(s) works only partially because if I use the API to submit forms, smart fields do not stop it from being overwritten.
Thank you as always for your continued feedback, it helps us build a great product.
We are constantly evaluating and re-evaluating our priorities and roadmap to deliver as much value to our customers as possible. It is currently possible to append data to a multiple checkbox property. Here is an article that describes that functionality. However, at this time, adding additional functionality to our import tool is not something our team is currently planning to build natively into HubSpot. This is certainly subject to change in the future and we will update this idea if that becomes the case.
