Am I the only one who wants to be able to create deals from person created automatically and have all fields transfer over, INCLUDING single option fields so I can use them also for insights? Who wants this feature? :)

    I could see this being a good use case depending on your pipeline set up. So right now our pipelines are set up to only go after those who are "qualified". However, if you have some early stages in your pipeline like an interest or new prospect bucket as your first stage I think this could be very useful especially until Leads Inbox is set up fully. Have you take a look at automations in pipedrive? It looks like this automation template exists. It's under Templates, Then "Add Deals", it's called "Every time a new person is added create a deal."

    The automation exists and can be created as well. the problem is that the automation does not pull the existing information from the person to the deal if its not open text. since insights only reports on deals and not 'leads' i am having to do a lot of improvs to get reporting on the whole cycle

    Thanks for sharing @Yuval. I'd like to share it with our team but I hear you talk about deals, leads, contacts, automation, custom fields and insights reporting... could you explain to me what problem it is you're trying to solve?

    Thanks @Mike van der Valk . The core problem is the insight reporting. to report on a custom field, you need to have it be NOT open text, so it has to be single option lets say.. when i create a deal, the way they are created (again because of how the platform works) the through my process is the following:
    FILL OUT WEB FORM > ZAPIER PASSES INFORMATION > PERSON IS CREATED IN PIPEDRIVE > AUTOMATION IN PIPEDRIVE CREATES DEAL FROM PERSON.
    when the deal is created automatically, the single option fields on the person are not transferred over even if asked to. this creates the problem of having a deal without the necessary fields added automatically, and thus creates manual work to add the field so we can use in insight reporting. hope that answers your question.

    @Yuval gotcha, will pass that on to our team! I guess the only workaround for now is to also use Zapier to create the deal and pass on person values to the deal. Just need to make sure you set up the right custom fields on the deal level as well.

    Thanks @Mike I tried that as well but there apparently is a bug on Pipedrive that is not letting it work either through your own automation or through zapier.

    @Yuval have you reached out to our support team? Perhaps there's an expert there that can understand what's happening, for me it's hard to troubleshoot now sorry..
