Last updated: January 29, 2024

Available with any of the following subscriptions, except where noted:

All products and plans

You can edit and organize the properties that appear in the About section of your contact, company, deal, and ticket records. You can select up to 300 properties to appear in this section.

Users with Account and Edit property settings permissions can also customize the properties that appear by default in the About section for all users in the HubSpot account.

  • 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.
  • Click the name of the record.
  • In the left panel, at the bottom of the About section, click View all properties.


  • On the Manage properties page, to add a property to the section, search for and hover over the property, then click Add to your view.

  • In the left panel, you can do the following:
    • To reset the properties in the About section to the default, click Reset to account defaults. This will reset the About section to the account default, but will not update custom sections included in a default sidebar.
    • To remove a property from the About section, click X. If the X is greyed out, the property is an account-wide default property that cannot be removed.
    • To reorder properties in the About section, click and drag properties in the left column to the order you want.

Please note: if you previously modified the properties displaying on the About card of a record, any new default properties added by your administrator will be added to the bottom of the card.
