Auto Fill values in Custom Fields

Hi,

I am looking to see if we can add a new functionality to Wrike. I want the values in the custom fields of the project to automatically fill in the values of the custom fields that are within the new tasks created within that project. I spoke with your customer support and they said that is currently not possible.

This functionality would be really great for us too.

We're creating new projects from request forms (which in turn duplicate blueprints) - so the custom fields are completed via the request form and then auto-populated at the project level, but the task custom fields are all left empty.

We need tasks within a project to auto-inherit custom field data, so that users and approvers have the detail they need on the tasks they're contributing to... but it's far too inefficient for the team to populate all of the task custom fields separately. So we're stuck!

Any help would be brilliant.

This improvement would also be very helpful for us! is there no way to solve this with an automation in the meantime?

Hi Bas Rijks, at the moment, autofill is not possible. I can recommend setting up a rule for @mentioning the followers if a custom field is empty but this will apply only checkbox or single select custom fields.

I'll pass on your feedback to the team, and we'll be sure to let you know if there are any updates here.
