Your Lift Custom Object Interface will now be connected. You'll be redirected to the main screen to begin creating custom objects. The object display view will be empty except for a line of text letting you know you don't have any custom objects created.

  • Determined that a custom object is the best solution for your problem
  • Outlined how your custom object fits into the Entity-Relationship-Diagram for your database
  • Outlined your new custom object's initial schema

3. Fill out the form to create your object. 
Note: For help with filling out the form, here are the meanings of each field: 

  • Object Name: The name HubSpot uses on its back-end to refer to your custom object. The back-end is the only thing that uses the "Object Name", but it should be consistent with your Object Labels.
  • Object Label - Singular: The name HubSpot uses to refer to a single record of your custom object.
  • Object Label - Plural: The name HubSpot uses to refer to multiple records of your custom object. The Plural label is used in your custom object's views and property settings.
  • Primary Display Property Name: The name of the single-line text property that will be defined when your custom object is created. This will be the name of the property that will hold the data that best identifies any record of your custom object. The data for the Primary Display Property is used on associated records of other object types, used to search through your custom object records, and required to create a record of your custom object. 
  • Associations: The objects associated to your custom object by HubSpot's back-end. By defining associations you can associate records of your custom object to records of other types, so you can access the data in one of your custom object records that is relevant to a record of a different object type.

4. Click the "Create Your Object" button.

2. Update the corresponding fields.
Note: For help with updating fields, here's a list of what each field means:

  • Primary Display Property: The property that is the best identifier for one of your custom object's records. This is the property with data displayed first on a custom object's record, anywhere it is displayed.
  • Secondary Display Properties: A maximum of two properties that provide significant context to one of your custom object's records. These properties are displayed by default along with the Primary Display Property wherever a custom object's record might be displayed. 
  • Required Properties: The properties required to manually create a new record of your custom object. The data held in these properties are the bare minimum required for a record to have value in the CRM.
  • Searchable Properties: A maximum of 3 properties (usually including the Primary Display Property) that can be used to search through all of your custom object's records. These properties should hold data that can be fairly unique to each record.
  • Associations: The objects associated to your custom object by HubSpot's back-end. By defining associations you can associate records of your custom object to records of other types, so you can access the data in one of your custom object records that is relevant to a record of a different object type.
