    Welcome to the Community, Sofie! Thanks so much for posting your feedback here. This is an interesting idea and I see how it can be useful. A little clarification, am I right in understanding that your end goal is to be able to set Custom Fields visibility for parent and children Folders in just one place (during Custom Fields creation or editing) and have them show up in multiple locations at once?

    Yes, that's correct. Currently if I create custom fields on a parent folder, they will be applied to the children folder in my view. However, if I share one of those child folders with another user who does not have sharing privileges on the parent folder, they will not see the custom fields because they don't have access to the parent folder where the custom fields live. So yes, it would result in the custom fields showing up in multiple locations at once.

    Hi, this issue is exactly what I'm facing at the moment as well. I totally agree with Sofie.

    In our case as we have > 100 projects at a time, it is not handy to ask the user(s) to add a custom field manually when we add something on top level.

    I would highly appreciate if this feature would get its way into wrike.

    Hello! This is something we are looking for as well. We're moving project between folders and may not necessarily want users to see all folders within a parents folder to minimize any confusion, hence not sharing the folder with them but then the custom fields aren't showing up.ย 

    ย 

    Is this something that is still in the works?ย

    Hi. Are there any updates on this request, or is there an ETA on a solution? Our team just purchased Wrike and I'm setting up our portfolio. Having to add custom fields at the sub-project level is very burdensome, and adding a user at the custom field "paren" folder level doesn't make sense as there are users who shouldn't have that specific access.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Brigitte

    My problem with custom fields is similar, but I would like more control over which fields are visible when the task is open for edit. The task seems to take on and show all the fields for every folder it's affiliated or tagged to. If one folder it's in has 10 custom fields, and then that task is tagged to another folder and that folder has 5 custom fields that are different the sum total of custom fields for the task is 15. There are some instances where the task will show custom fields even though its in a folder that has no custom fields active for the folder. Somehow the fields are coming from some parent folder. I even have instances where the total fields available for the task are more than the number of fields on the folder. Definitely, would like to see improvement on what fields show. I feel like if a field is shown in table view then only those fields should be shown when the task is opened for editing.ย
