Order of custom fields in the folder/project/task view

When viewing details of folder/project/task custom fields are displayed ordering them alphabetically. Such an order most of the times is not logical. For example fields starting with "%" will be displayed before any field starting with a normal letter.

For example the fields "Planned Cost", "Actual Cost", "%Cost Allocated", "Planned Man-Effort", "Actual Man-Effort", "%of Man-Effort Spent" will be displayed in the order:

%Cost Allocated

%of Man-Effort Spent

Actual Cost

Actual Man-Effort

Planned Cost

Planned Man-Effort

 

It would more logical to be displayed in this order:

Planned Cost

Actual Cost

%Cost Allocated

Planned Man-Effort

Actual Man-Effort

%of Man-Effort Spent

or in this order: 

Planned Cost

Planned Man-Effort

Actual Cost

Actual Man-Effort

%Cost Allocated

%of Man-Effort Spent

 

Please implement a feature to arrange custom fields manually and inherit it to the hierarchy below.

Agreed! I had these fields set up in a way that worked for me. I do NOT need them alphabetically, if I did I would have set it up that way. I need them the way I originally had them setup. Please change it back, or give the option to reorder them.

Ja ich stimme den Kollegen zu, in DE ist es auch notwendig die "custom fields" zu sortieren.
Eine alphabetische Sortierung macht wenig Sinn. Vielen Dank.

Agree with the urgency and importance of the order of custom fields.

Alphanumerical order makes absolutely no sense because it does not cluster the custom fields that are related or relevant, nor does it help in displaying the most important batch for individual use cases (for project managers, portfolio managers, regional specialists, engineers, back offiice staff, branch mangers, etc.).

We have custom fields that are used globally by various use cases, local custom fields by country, custom fields that are only relevant to certain areas or regions, etc. So naming or numbering them in a consistent way across the whole account is not possible.

I've also commented on the original "Brough to you by Wrike" post: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360044203093--From-Wrike-Custom-Field-Update-?page=1#community_comment_360012067133

Please change it back! We also had our custom fields sorted logically, not alphabetically. Alphabetic may be useful in some situations but definitely not all. Giving users the option to use the default (alpha) sort or a custom sort would be optimal.

Thank you.

When we originally setup our custom fields, we were advised that if we wanted to control the custom field arrangement on the project list view, use the table view and arrange columns.  We did this, and it had worked perfectly.  Now, the view has changed to alphabetically arranged and not helpful at all for us.  Please give clients back the ability to arrange the custom field views so that it reflects how their project teams need to see the data.  Thanks you for your consideration.

What's the status of allowing the admin to control the order in which custom fields are viewed on the project view like it used to be?

Are there any work arounds?
