Create Multiple Deal Pipelines in HubSpot CRM
Not all Sales cycles within an organization are created equal. In companies that offer several products, operate in multiple countries, across verticals, or simply have distinct funnels (e.g. new customer vs. Upsell), sales teams need the flexibility to track unique sales processes in different ways.
With today’s update, HubSpot CRM now provides that flexibility, allowing sales teams to create multiple Deal pipelines. This enables them to work more efficiently, and to customize their processes around the unique needs of their buyers.
How it works
Within HubSpot CRM, navigate to Settings => Deals, and scroll down to the section for Editing Deal Stages. Click Manage Pipelines, and you’ll see a new link to Add Pipeline. Once you’ve added your new pipeline, you can create and customize your deal stages to align with the unique features of the sales process.
When you head back to your Deal dashboard, the title of your pipeline will now be a dropdown, enabling you to select any of your newly-created pipelines.
Ready to get started? Create a new deal pipeline for your sales team now.

HubSpot Wish List
Webinar lead scoring with custom date filters
With a GoToWebinar integration, we should have more control over lead scoring. With every other lead scoring data point we can add a more refined filter by date.
For example, if someone has looked at a product page within the past 60 days, we give them more points as opposed to someone who has looked at a product page at any point in time.
Let's have that option for webinars as well. A lead is hotter if they have attended a webinar recently, as opposed to if they had attended a webinar, say, a year ago.
