Introducing new Leads API endpoints

Effective from July 23, 2020


We have now added the brand new Leads resource to the Pipedrive API.

In the sales world, Leads are potential Deals that are stored separately from Deals in the Leads Inbox inside Pipedrive.

Leads resource allows to get, create, update and delete Leads, Lead Labels and get Lead Sources

Is there a trigger for a new lead?

For Webhooks? Not yet.

That would be very cool for our Zapier integration

The people at Zapier are usually pretty quick to add triggers so I’m sure it will be added in the not too distant future.

It’s also not a bad idea to reach out to them and explain the need. Might add some urgency to being completed.

Is there any way to create Activities related to a Lead using the API yet or is this in the plans?

Hi @fujikawa,
sadly it currently isn’t possible to add an Activity to a Lead but we’ll consider adding it in the future.

This would be a blocker for us to fully integrate leads, since people do wish to associate calls etc with them.

Hi James,
I’ll pass your feedback to our development team. Hopefully we’ll get the ball rolling for this capability sooner rather than later.

Hi @Elina - what about an API for converting a lead to a deal?

Hey @dzisner - we are aware of the need for this endpoint and it’s in the backlog but sadly I can’t give you an ETA.

Thanks @Elina, will appreciate being updated once it’s available :slight_smile:
