Job Title

Job Title is an important field for us. I was able to add it as a custom field but there are numerous places where we need to see it including leads inbox, "people tab" of contacts, "people panel" of an organization, "participants panel" of a deal. 

Can we get the job title to appear in the participants panel of a deal and the people panel of an organization like this for example?

Can we get the job title to appear in the popover, that appears when hovering over a person's name, like this:

    @Mike van der Valk This continues to be a source of frustration and others are asking about it too.  See the post from @Erik Mosselaar  here

    Hi @Michael Barshinger and @Mike Harrigan

    Unfortunately right now there are no concrete short term plans to make these improvements. With many customers and requests and with limited development resources we need to prioritise and make choices what to deliver first. However, I have again made sure our team will consider your suggestion for future developments.

    This is where we make all product update announcements, make sure to follow them:

    • Follow What's Planned to know what we're currently working on and what’s to come.
    • Follow What’s New and don’t miss any new release announcements.
    • Join our Research and Beta Testing channel for the chance to try out early versions and give us your opinion about new and improved features before they go live.

    Hi Inês, 

     

    Thanks for your input.

    I know It's very easy to add a custom field for the Job Title (it's the very first thing I did in my account, along with removing in the contacts array the Labels and replacing it with Job Title).

    But still, it seems really weird to me that Pipedrive, as a CRM solution, doesn't have this field by default.

    How come a CRM doesn't have Job Title field for Contacts and display it in all the places where the contacts are shown? It's a bit as if a car vendor would tell me : "Sorry, our brand of cars doesn't have speedometer and we don't have concrete short term plans to make this improvement".

    Job Title is one of the 5 or 6 indispensible fields needed for any Contact... If it was a default field, it would be possible to:

    • Display it in all the visualisations of contacts
    • have the LinkedIn smart enrichment functionality
    • Probably many other uses that I can't think of at the moment

    Another important remark: LinkedIn, having close to 700M users (so I guess they know what they are doing), displays this field second, right after the name. It certainly means something in terms of users needs and about the importance of seeing this information right away...

    @Michael Barshinger Thanks for sharing this request with details and screenshot example.

    It is really frustrating to keep navigating to the full contact view then back to the organization view just to know the person's job title.

    We would really appreciate it if you implemented this feature @Mike van der Valk 

    Please keep us posted regarding this request

    Unfortunately it's not implemented, best is to also write to support about it so they can use their process to request this from the product teams.

    Hi @Michael Barshinger

    I'm new to Pipedrive. I'm frankly shocked I had to look up how to add a job title to a CRM platform for one, then even more shocked to find that it doesn't exist. 

    A grave fundamental flaw. 

    Jaw on floor. So incomprehensibly weird. 

  • Wow, I thought I had missed something in my initial configuration. When we sell to a company, we are actually selling to a person, apart from the name, the next most important thing to know is what position this person is holding. How come this issue doesn't have more votes?

    Thank you @Michael Barshinger
