Please make DEAL ID a field that can be made visible in deal view.  We would like to use the DEAL ID as our Project ID as a project moves through sales cycle and into production process but this field cannot currently be made visible.  EASY CHANGE I should think.

    Hi @Ann Hamilton 

    Thanks for sharing. Could you tell me a bit more about how your project process works? Do you create another deal for it in Pipedrive you want to have linked to the original?

    @Mike van der Valk  I want to be able to see the Pipedrive Deal ID that is assigned when a new deal is created.  That way our company could use the same Project ID through from lead to project completion.  The PD ID could move with the project through to our project management system outside of PD and be noted on all folders within our servers, etc. so that all are tied together with the same identifier.

    Hi @Ann Hamilton in this case you can see the Deal ID in the URL of the page when you look at the deal. It can also be pulled via our API so that it can feed into any third party tool you are using.

    Hi Mike,  the Deal ID is displayed in the sales docs feature as a printable field, but it doens't appear when selected and printed. Correct?

    I would also like to be able to have the deal ID in the deal name automatically for the same purposes as AnnHamilton above.

    Hi!

    Yes, for me it would be very useful that pipedrive creates a new unique Deal ID everytime I a new deal is created. That could be used as unique Project ID-number.  

    If I understood it correctly at the moment the Deal ID is only shown on the docs (i.e. for quotes) to be sent or printed, but I can not see this ID in the deal in pipedrive. 

    Is it possible to modify that?

    thanks

    Hi Mike,

    Can the Deal ID be a custom field in the deal view?

    Unfortunately not @Matt Keppich with a little setup you can automate it though. You could create a custom field named Deal ID or something else and use for example Zapier to automate. So when you add a new deal, Zapier sees that, pulls the ID and then copies that ID in the custom field.

    Hey Mike, trying to do exactly this.

    We're having a hard time attempting to pull the deal ID using Zapier as it the ID itself doesn't exist anywhere on the pipedrive deal itself other than its URL.

    Is there anyway to call the PD system deal id associated with the deal? Or do we have to use a GET request to get the deal ID for a deal?

    Hi @Andy Seo 

    It's hard to say as I'm not sure how currently your Zap is setup. Our support or that of Zapier should be able to help you out if you provide some screenshots.

    However, the GET request is indeed an option. Again hard for me to judge where it's going wrong now sorry. I'd recommend checking in with the support teams, I'm sure they can help you out as the Deal ID is available :)

    Is this still outstanding? The deal ID is essential to track into accounting for invoicing purposes and to track backwards for sales attribution.

    Without it how can we reconcile / control that all our won deals have been accounted for?

    Is there a free alternativ to Zapier that can do the same thing (ie when new deal, copy URL ID to a customer field (called DealID)?

    Hi Ann, Agree that is a field which should be visible. I did the following now. Created a custom field and I fill this when creating the deal and adding the Deal ID to it manually. Not the best way to do but at least you can use it for exports and other purposes.
