Request Forms: Map Responses with Multi-Select

Hi! 

It'd be great to be able to map request form responses to multiple parts of a task. For example, have something be mapped to both a custom field and the title. Or have it mapped to the description as well. 

For example, we have a request form that maps the department name to the title, but it'd also be great to have it map to a custom field, so that we can do queries by department at some point if need be, to see which departments are submitting the most requests.

This would be an incredibly helpful, I've been meaning to make a product feedback thread for it for a while (in fact I thought I already had), so thank you for raising this Desiree Dixon.

Would really appreciate this one Wrike 😉😁

User cases for us:

-Retaining originally requested dates in custom fields (not in the stream) as well as mapping to the task S/E dates (which could then be modified by a project manager as appropriate).

-Wanting something to be mapped to the title and to a custom field. Saves me having to make the question twice, particularly annoying if it's a large dropdown with 50+ items. Saves the request form users from having to enter the same thing twice in two questions.

George Fiveash Yes, absolutely - I do not want people to have to enter the same data twice, so that it can be mapped to two places. Not a great user experience 😅

This would increase efficiency for us.  Here is are our current use cases:

  • When transporting code from one environment to another, we require the developers to enter a request.  We need to approve these requests as well as be able to report on them from an audit perspective (which is why we need the custom fields).
  • During our projects, if someone wants to make a change or enhancement to an approved design or already-built set of code, they need to enter a request.  We need to approve these requests as well as be able to report on which objects are impacted, hence the need for custom fields.

As a workaround, we are asking users to enter the information twice into 2 different fields - once so it can go into the description for ease of approving, and once so it can go into the custom field so we can report on it.

Hi Cansu,

That post is not quite the same - The forms as they exist today do allow custom fields to map at the task level, so the request here might already be resolved.

My use case is centered around allowing 1 input field (i.e. a short answer) to be mapped to both a task custom field and the task description.
