Adding multiple Contacts/People to a Lead

Seems like you can only have one person on a lead.  Would be nice to be able to have multiple contacts, as we keep opportunities in Lead status until we have a shot at it (at which point we convert to a deal). But, up until that point, we may discover multiple organization contacts (and organizations!)

    This is a very usual use case for us too.

    And not only inside the same organization, many of our deals require the contribution of resellers, partners, etc that are also key on one specific deal.

    100% - we would like to use Company as the basis for leads, and then have many contacts - currently only allowed to use People as the basis for Leads which makes management of an inward pipe somewhat challenging

    We could use this functionality as well. Sometimes when communicating/negotiating with a lead, I have to copy multiple decision makers on each message. Right now I handle this by putting reminders in tasks and notes to add these people by hand to each message (or using reply all, depending on where we are in the process). But just being able to have multiple people attached to the lead and they all get put into the address field would be helpful.

    Yes this would be a great help. I have multi leads or contacts in companies. Also being about to add more detail info like Birthday wife name etc would really help

    I understand the Lead being a person, but they are attached to an organization, which should have other people attached, as needed.  This connection is lost with the Lead data base. This is an issue, as discussed by the replies.

    Would also be very usual for our company too! multiple contacts / email addresses and be able to add multiple email addresses automatically when creating emails for the deal.

    100% agree with this. Must be a way to add another person based on preferred points of contact.

    agreed.  Have thought the same thing.   we may have influencers and correspondence related to a deal. Not always from or with the primary contact.

    Certainly this is needed. Pipedrive Leads would be a lot more useful for me if multiple contacts & email addresses could be added to them.
