The new custom pipelines feature is really great. It works well for custom objects, and I'd love to see if expanded to lead status as well. For now, there are two adjustments I'd love to see:
1. Required fields by stage - we have a well defined process that we've moved into HubSpot and would like to require different data points to be filled in in order to progress.
2. Have the stage field filter by pipeline - for a deal, once you select a pipeline, it only shows you stages for that deal. On custom pipelines, you can select a pipeline and then any stage across pipelines. It should winnow down the stage options to only what's included in that pipeline.
