Understand 'Original source drill-down' properties

Last updated: June 25, 2019

Original source drill-down 1 and Original source drill-down 2 are two analytics properties included on every HubSpot contact record. Older HubSpot accounts may have the properties Original source data 1 and Original source data 2 instead, which contain the same information.

These properties store further information about the source of the contact's first visit. Their values vary depending on the Original source property.

Please note:
  • There may be a discrepancy between a contact's Original source and Original source drill-down property values if their Original source value was manually changed by a user.
  • The Original source drill-down 2 property value you see in HubSpot is not the value to use when filtering on this property in lists or saved filters. The internal value must be used to filter on this property instead.
