[Status: Launched! ๐Ÿš€] Custom field manager

Pinned

The ability to view, create and manage all custom fields (especially with dropdown lists) through a specific interface (not in the table view). ย This would allow:

  • management of dropdown lists to enable the same dropdowns to be used for custom fields and request forms (to enable population of custom fields from request dropdowns which I understand is in progress)
  • description of the field to ensure consistency of use
  • view / management of the folders to which the custom field is appliedย 
  • visibility of whether the field is a duplicate, redundant, etc. for maintenance

The custom fields could then be a select option in the "create folder template" (and then in management of that folder)ย to avoid the number of fields expanding in the task view as you tag with other folders.

Hi, I've seen that this Custom Field Manager has been implemented in a recent update. Is there a way to see where my custom fields are being used in this manager that I am not seeing?

Thanks Lisa,

ย 

Could that be taken a step further to see which folders and projects the custom fields are being applied to? Knowing what Space a field belongs to would not be specific enough to solve a lot organization issues I'd like to solve.

I agree with Brady above, being able to see more specifically would be much appreciated if possible! Our spaces have a LOT in them and when we finally dig in and try to clean up our custom fields it's gonna be a bear. Any additional tools and visibility will make a huge difference to us. Thanks!
