All products and plans

You can add or edit a property value from within an individual record. If you'd like to edit records' property values in bulk, learn how to edit from the object's index page, through an import, or using a workflow.

Please note: read-only properties (e.g., Create date, Original source) are set by HubSpot analytics or third-party integrations and cannot be manually edited.

  • Navigate to your records:
    • Contacts: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Contacts.
    • Companies: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > Companies.
    • Deals: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Sales > Deals.
    • Tickets: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Service > Tickets.
    • Custom objects: In your HubSpot account, navigate to Contacts > [Custom object]. If your account has more than one custom object, hover over Custom Objects, then select the custom object you want to view.
  • Click the name of a record.
  • In the left panel, About section, click a property to edit and select or enter a property value. Once you're done, click Save.

    • On the Manage properties page, search or browse for a property, then click the dropdown menu or text field to select or enter a property value.
    • In the bottom left, click Save.

If you're unable to save the new value, the property may require a unique value. If you don't see a property that matches the information you want to add to your record, you can create a custom property.
