    Hi Adrian, great idea here! Something I wanted to mention which is already possible, is choosing the default task type (backlogged or scheduled) and the default duration, this can be done from your Profile Settings.

    This would be of huge value to our organization as well, specifically the ability to set defaults for entire projects and all related tasks and sub tasks that fall into it. We have projects with hundreds of tasks and thousands of sub tasks so this would be a huge time saver for us, we normally have templates worked out for these big projects and mass editing them without having to import info from excel first would help us speed up project admin work that needs to take place before projects officially start.

    this will help us also. Because the first option is always the more frequent one

    This is something I'm looking for. Wrike allows to add a extra field set to percentage which works great with tasks under a project. If users type the progress of each tasks in percentage in this field Wrike makes the math correctly and shows at the top of each project the whole advance of the project in percentage exactly as MS Project. HOWEVER, to work correctly, when a task is created, the user should type ZERO in this field (doing this Wrike makes the math correctly considering all tasks and its percentage) but guest what... no one type zero when a task is created. This is why I'm trying to set zero as default for this filed. As the task is progressing, the user will update the value.

    This is also something we've been looking for especially for drop down columns which is common to have a default value.

    This is something that just came up, we would like to have the ability to have a default value set in custom fields so that when we create reports there are no empty values for this field. I tried without success. Hoping this is something you are looking at in the near future.

    Thank you for the update.

    I'd really like to se this feature land in wrike or its labs soon. Having the ability to set Default values for Task-Creation is very important to us.

    Looks like this is possible now. I'm in one of our forms and with a dropdown field option, I can select a default.

    We'd love to be able to set a default value for our custom columns as well. I see Samantha's post on 2/19/19 saying she was able to set a default, but I don't see this option for our dropdown fields. How can we set default values for our columns?

    Adding a vote here as well. Definitely would like the assignee to default to myself for tasks I'm creating. (Though I can see a reason for a manager who creates tasks for a team to want the opposite—so maybe the option to "default assign to me" is an on/off configuration.)

     

    Also wanting to set a default for a custom field that we've added to our Projects. The field was added at the topmost level, but some particular sub-projects will always be set the same. It'd be nice to choose a default state for tasks created in that Project.

     

    Thanks!
