When you create a custom property in HubSpot, the type of information you want the property to collect and store will determine the field type to select. There are 11 property field types in HubSpot:

  • Single checkbox: stores two options, on or off. Often used if you need a property value that is strictly true or false. In forms, they appear as a single checkbox.
  • Multiple checkboxes: stores checkboxes that contain several, usually related options. In forms, they are frequently used with the help text Check all that apply
  • Date picker: stores a date value. In forms, they are used to allow visitors to input a specific date in a standard format.  
  • File: stores a file associated with a contact. In forms, they are used to allow visitors to upload files as part of their submission. The uploaded file's link is available from the individual's contact record. Please note that this property type is only for contact properties. 
  • Number: stores a string of numerals or numbers written in decimal or scientific notation. You cannot use decimals or negative numbers in your filters when segmenting lists or workflows by number properties.
  • Radio select: stores several options, and only one option can be selected as a value. In forms, they function similarly to dropdown select fields but appear differently.
  • Dropdown select: stores several options, and only one option can be selected as a value. In forms, they function similarly to radio select fields but appear differently.
  • Single-line text: stores a string of any alphanumeric characters, such as a word, a phrase, or a sentence.
  • Multi-line text: stores multiple strings of alphanumeric characters, such as a paragraph or list of items.
  • Calculation: (Enterprise accounts only) stores custom equations based on number properties. Calculation properties can not be used in forms. Learn more about creating calculation properties.
  • HubSpot user: stores a list of HubSpot users in your account. Only one HubSpot user can be selected as a value.
