How can I add a description to my contact property?

January 31, 2018


The description field on your contact properties is an internal field that can be used to add notes to your properties. This can be useful if there are multiple HubSpot users in your company and/or if you create a lot of custom properties and would like to be able to define each property and how it is used. 

  • Navigate to your contacts. Click the Actions dropdown menu and select Edit properties.
  • Hover over the contact property in question and click Edit.
  • Edit the description accordingly and click Save.

You can also hover over any contact properties that appear in the About card on a contact's record to see the description for that property. This gives your team a reference point for how each property is used and how it is defined within your organization.
