A workaround we're using to map a drop down selection to both a custom field and the description...

  1. Configure multiple blueprint tasks containing each drop down selection's scenario prepopulated within the task description.
  2. Under Request Form settings, map the question's answer to the custom field
  3. For each drop down option, use the conditional assignment feature to configure the "replace task" and select the matching blueprint task. 

Upon submit, this will dynamically pull the correct blueprint task containing the content already in the description and then add the rest of the form's answers below that. The custom field will also be populated. 

This obviously only works/practical with Drop Down and Importance questions that contain minimal options listed and when there's just a 1 critical question in the form that you need to map to both areas.

Hi Wrike!

We'd love to see some time invested in this request. This would really improve our use of Wrike's features like reports, filters, calendars, dashboards, etc. To use any of those, we need to have custom fields filled in. But it's also very important that the task title includes several answers from our forms. Since we can only map an answer to either the Title OR a Custom Field, we're stuck either way.

At the moment we pay an external developer to write some logic using the API to automate the task title based on our custom fields - we have to ask for new logic each time we create a new folder or form. As you can imagine, this could be so much more efficient if Wrike would push this feature forward.

Thank you!

How many votes does this need to come off the backburner? If this is being implemented at some point, will there be any way to leverage system fields such as Project ID? It'd be great to be able to leverage the system's native object identifier for a project as the "Project Number" and add that to the Title dynamically as the Project is created.

Hi Jason DAquin, welcome to the Community, and thank you for checking in. Unfortunately, for now, the status remains as Backburner here. I've passed on your feedback to our Product team. 

As outlined in this Community post, the Product team looks at a wide range of data, user feedback, and Community suggestions/votes to determine what next to work on. The team always aims to focus on implementing the functionality that will have the widest impact and benefit for the most users, and it's for this reason, that we can't implement all of the suggestions we receive via our various feedback channels.

That being said, the Product team is still interested in this idea and they're paying close attention to the feedback here with plans to review it in the future.
