Single record delete permissions

  • What is it about: A revamped way to manage the deletion of CRM data on a per-user basis.
  • What are the benefits: In the HubSpot Users & Teams panel, you can specify what rights users have in your HubSpot account. The admin has control over data, elements, and functionalities in their HubSpot account. CRM data is the most business-critical part of the system, so more control capabilities have now been created to manage it. Before you could choose whether a user has the right to mass-delete data in the system, in parallel with this, it is now possible to prevent even a single deletion of data from the database. The new feature gives you even more control over what information your users have the ability to delete on the system.
