Ensure Proper Access with Field Level Edit Permissions

The key to an efficient sales team is a clean database.

To keep your database clean as your sales team scales, you need the right users to have access to the right data. If a sales rep has access to something she shouldn't, that distracts her from actually selling, and might put key team processes and reporting at risk.

With field level edit permissions, admins can lock down the values of specific properties to certain reps, so everyone on your team can edit exactly what they should.
Assigning permissions to properties is just like assigning permissions to any other asset in HubSpot.
Navigate to Settings > Properties. Click the checkbox next to one or more properties, then click "Assign Users and Teams." Select the users and teams who can edit values, and click save.
