Phone numbers pulling to in app calling function

When I imported my contact leads, I used custom properties (found below) since we had three separate numbers per contact. We weren’t using Sales Starter with the in app calling function. 

Phone 1

Phone 2

Phone 3

 

We have now started using Sales Starter and are using the in app call function for our contacts.  We discovered the following.

  1. Our Custom made properties (Phone 1, Phone 2, Phone 3) aren’t pulling in to the call app.  The only property that will pull into the call app and populate the number without you manually doing so is the default property PHONE NUMBER.
  2. We have to have the default property PHONE NUMBER in order for our Sales Starter call functionality to work. 
  3. We have three phone numbers and have to stack them all into the PHONE NUMBER property unless there is another way.

My questions.

  1. Can I make the custom properties (Phone 1, Phone 2, Phone 3) the default properties to pull and populate the phone number in Sales Starter call function?
  2. If I have to use the default property PHONE NUMBER, can you have three phone numbers in one property and still have the call functionality?
  3. If I have to use the default property PHONE NUMBER, is there a convenient way anybody can think of to MASS migrate the fields Phone 1, Phone 2, Phone 3 into one property PHONE NUMBER? Or. . . . do I have to manually do this???

Q:

-1- Can I make the custom properties (Phone 1, Phone 2, Phone 3) the default properties to pull and populate the phone number in Sales Starter call function?
-2- If I have to use the default property PHONE NUMBER, can you have three phone numbers in one property and still have the call functionality?
-3- If I have to use the default property PHONE NUMBER, is there a convenient way anybody can think of to MASS migrate the fields Phone 1, Phone 2, Phone 3 into one property PHONE NUMBER? Or. . . . do I have to manually do this????

 

Longer A:

-1- No. The default calling number cannot be changed to your custom properties.


-2- No. You cannot stack multiple phone numbers into one property and still have call functionality.

 

-3- Use workflows as follows.
-WF1- Enroll all contacts whose Phone Number is unknown | Copy Phone 1 to Phone Number
-WF2- Enroll all contacts whose Mobile Phone Number is unknown | Copy Phone 2 to Mobile Phone Number

 

The above steps presume Phone 1 was ALWAYS populated before all other phone numbers in your original setup.

 

The above will allow you to select either Phone Number OR Mobile Phone Number from the calling dropdown when calling from within HubSpot. If the Contact is associated with a Company, you'll also have a 3rd option (for Company Phone) in the dropdown.

Frank,

 

Thank you for the detailed explanation.  My last question is on 3.  

 

-WF1- Enroll all contacts whose Phone Number is unknown | Copy Phone 1 to Phone Number
-WF2- Enroll all contacts whose Mobile Phone Number is unknown | Copy Phone 2 to Mobile Phone Number

 

Can this be done at a mass level, or does this have to be done manually one by one with me going into each contact?  I'm not familiar with what you mean by "Enroll all contacts whose Phone Number is unknown.  What does this look like?
