For those of you who aren’t at INBOUND… this ep’s for you!

I (Carina) did a Sales/CRM workshop this week and it was, as they say, LIT -- and inspired most of the content for this week.

If you've got questions on the HubSpot Sales tools, let us know!

Property of the Week: Hidden Reporting Properties

Entered Stage Date

I learned something new this week.

I did a Sales/CRM workshop with a client and we built a whole bunch of custom reports for their sales team.

In the process, I discovered there are deal properties that are ONLY visible when building custom reports with the reporting add-on, and not in an actual deal record! What?!

They’re categorized as “Deals Calculated Information.”

There’s even a property I found that’s not even listed in the list linked above: Entered Stage Date.

HubSpot Wishlist: Report on Days Open for Deals

My client this week wanted to have a widget that showed how many deals have been open for 1-30 days, 30-60 days, 60-90 days, 90-180 days or 180+ days.

There currently is no way to report on this, or even just see how many days a deal has been open easily on the deal board.

This is an important thing for sales team members to be able to see!

Also, I hacked out a way to basically see this with the “hidden property” I found! If you want to hear the secret sauce, shoot me an email!
