Is there a way to make a custom field mandatory to add a value before the task can be completed?

Hi Ryan Wirth!

It isn't currently possible to set a custom field as required in Wrike. The Product team is interested in this suggestion, but there are no plans to implement this in the short-term. I would recommend adding your vote to this Product Feedback post about the suggestion so that you will be kept notified if there are any changes here.

If you need anything else, be sure to let me know.

The mandatory custom field is very much needed.

I was able to get this going by adding an automation rule on the tasks within a particular folder. When the task is marked as completed, I create an action to check if the custom field is empty. If it is empty, then I change the status to "In Progress" and then also create a comment on the ticket to fill the custom field. That way, I was able to enforce in making a few custom fields mandatory.

My team really needs to be able to make certain custom fields mandatory. We have also expressed that with our account reps a few years ago.

This is making our reporting time more than double as our team has grown globally. It looks like other individuals have expressed the need for this update, but yet it keeps being deferred into a "voting" type manner.

This update shouldn't affect customers who don't need it, but be tremendously helpful for those who do. 

If this isn't addressed I will be suggesting we move into another platform that does.

Raj Srinivasan Thank you so much for sharing your workaround with the Community 🙌

Mario Parker Welcome to the Community! I understand your disappointment, and I will let your Account team know about your sentiment. Unfortunately, our team can't commit to working on every suggestion that we receive. They still listen to feedback though, and many of the planned enhancements are based on the feedback in this Community. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.
