Calculated Fields

We need calculated fields. I.e. if I have a field called Date of Birth, would be great if there was a self calculating field that shows age or when I create a template, to be able to do a formula.

    Yes, yes, an even more enthusiastic YES for this.

    The current solution is to use Zapier for this, but it wastes a lot of tasks credits.

    Yes, I've asked PD for a simple age calculation from the day I became a user.  I'm curious about the Zapier solution and what is a task credit?

    @Steve Johnson this is something we'd definitely consider exploring in the future. First up on our to-do list is mandatory fields though when it comes to fields, so stay tuned :)

    Every action step in an automation consumes one task credit in Zapier. A task credit is the currency/unit that you get when you subscribe for a paid plan.

    In Zapier, set up a trigger for 'Deal is updated', and opt for mathematical calculations in the action step (if required), and then use the result to update the deal.

    In your case, now() - deal creation date should give you the most recent age calculation.

    I use Integromat for anything like this - works a treat, way more capable than Zapier. Cheaper too.

    Calculated fields is an important missing feature in Pipedrive.  I have many uses for such a field type.  It would be ultimately handy if the resultant of the calculation could select an input on a single option list.

    I want to have a commitment date on a contract, which calculates 45 days from a contract date.  It is very important we have a calculated date field.

    @John Katsougrakis It was mentioned above that the only way around at the moment is Zapier. You can consider it if it is critical for you. 

    Otherwise I have a long list of examples where I would use calculated fields. It should not be a huge development, so I really hope that we all will be heard soon.

    I've run the numbers.  The math on calculated fields checks out.  Please add feature!

    Pipedrive really needs to implement this, I feel like this is very standard in other CRM systems and I'm surprised there is no update on this

    Hi @Ann Hamilton thanks for writing. It's definitely on the wish list but so far other things have gotten priority over it unfortunately.

    I don't understand what can be more important than a SO BASIC ability as to calculate fields... 🤷‍♂️

    Please guys, don't make the same mistake than your competitors : when your clients ask you for a terribly missing feature, listen to them. 😳

    To be forced to go through Zapier just to do an addition or a multiplication is nonsense! 🤦‍♂️

    Completely agree with Bill and Oliver. Huge mistake in dismissing the importance of this. I get that implementing calculated fields doesn't make for a shiny new product video but it's a huge capability miss. I think you might be underestimating the importance of this in helping bring in new (especially bigger) customers and also retaining existing ones as they grow.

    Hi @Bill Barlas @Olivier and @Alex Gero 

    Thank you for your comments here. I'm going to connect with our team working on the data fields here at Pipedrive. I wish I could make you any promises but unfortunately I can't :( 

    I hope you understand that prioritising for all our customers is one of the hardest things to do. We try to give you some sneak peaks of what we're working on here. And also hope that you continue to enjoy what we are releasing and communicating over here.

    I will do my best to make sure that your words here are heard and the team will look into this.

    PLEASE ADD CALCULATED FIELD. Documents without that feature are quite useless. Listen to your clients
