Read-only custom fields

We have custom field for persons in Pipedrive that indicate their subscription status in mailchimp.

This field is automatically updated using the API.

I wish I could mark the field as read-only for users so that it can only be updated using the API and not modified by accident by users.

    Thank you for your feedback @Peter Hultqvist , I can see how that would be useful. I've forwarded your suggestion to our team for consideration.

    This would be very beneficial.

    Currently, if users are able to alter id's which link up to other apps via the api, data in the third party is vulnerable to corruption.

    @Peter Hultqvist 

    I saw your note and thought you might like to know that we built an integration that does the exact same thing

    We have custom field for persons in Pipedrive that indicate their subscription status in mailchimp.

    This field is automatically updated using the API.

    We built Target Robot - Sync with Sales to sync contacts, companies, deals, and marketing campaigns between SalesCRMs and Mailchimp.  You can find it here in the Pipedrive marketplace.

    You might want to consider it as an option if you want to do more than just grab the marketing opt-in status. We also grab the campaign data as well as clicks and opens. We show all of the events in notes as well.

    Please let us know if you would like a demo or to just chat about it.

    Thanks,


    Bob
