Custom Fields for Tasks ONLY

Unless I'm missing something, it would be really nice to have the option to apply a custom field to ONLY THE TASK vs having to apply it to "tasks, projects, and folders". The way we set up work in Wrike is to have a project that is then populated with various related tasks (I assume that's how a lot of people use it). In a lot of cases there are things we would like to denote as custom fields that only apply at the task level and not at the project level. Having them also populate at the project level is cluttering and confusing.

I agree with this! Task level fields would be so helpful are very much needed. There are a few fields that we only want shown at the task level and have no business appearing at the project/folder level. It becomes cumbersome to look at all the custom fields at the project/folder level that are irrelevant to those containers.

Hey folks, thank you for this feedback! 

Have you tried using Work Templates yet? It's an experimental functionality that account owners and admins can enable from Wrike Labs. When you use them, you can set up which custom fields can be visible on tasks created from those work templates. 

Please let me know if that can be helpful!

Lisa I am trying out the project template functionality now and it seems to be addressing my needs around the custom fields. But it also seems to be missing the aggregation of time spent on a project (rolled up from time logged to its tasks). Is it there somewhere and I'm missing it or does it not exist in this project template view?

Yes, I desperately need this! It's confusing for my team when task-specific custom fields apply to projects. I know Work Templates are a workaround, but this is an issue for all of our existing projects.

We currently use Wrike as a project management system. We are so close to also being able to utilize a space in Wrike for ad placements, but there is one thing stopping that! Our need is to have Project Specific Custom Fields and then Task Specific Custom Fields. Currently, the project has triple the amount of necessary fields in order to get them accessible on the task. I tried Work Templates but it was too clunky for our needs. Please, make make custom fields have a task-only option!😍
