Follow the steps below to change the field type for one of your properties in HubSpot. For more information on the different field types available, check out this article.

Please note: many of HubSpot's default properties cannot be customized. The editing options will be greyed out when you click View or Edit on the property.

Changing an existing contact property to a different field may make previously captured information for that property invalid. It is recommended that you export all information prior to editing the contact property. To do this, create a list of all contacts who have a value for the property, then export the list.

  • Navigate to your contacts. Click the Actions dropdown menu and select Edit properties.
  • Hover over the property you want to change, click Edit. 
  • Click the Field type dropdown and select the desired type.
  • Click Save.
