Users with admin access in your HubSpot Sales Professional account can set up required fields for adding contacts, companies, and deals in HubSpot. This creates consistency in your account, as all users will be required to enter the same information when manually creating records. 

  • In your HubSpot account, navigate to Account menuSettings.

  • In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Contacts & Companies or SalesDeals.  
  • Click Manage next to Set the properties your team sees when creating contacts/companies/deals.
  • If this is your first time configuring which properties are shown when creating contacts, companies, or deals, you have the option to include your current default properties or start from scratch.

  • On the next screen, check the boxes in the Required? column next to any properties that you'd like to make mandatory when manually adding a contact, company, or deal to HubSpot. Some properties will always be required (e.g., Email for contacts, Deal Name for deals). If you'd like to add additional properties here, search or browse in the column on the left and check the boxes to the left to add properties to the Select Properties column.
  • Click Save

Moving forward, users will not be able to add a contact, company, or deal to HubSpot without entering values for these required fields.
