    As a safety measure, you could probably run a quick check to see if that "value" is going to overwrite any existing custom field values. If there are ones that exist, give the user the option to continue or abort the change. Maybe adding a message to have them consider creating a new custom field value and then discontinue the use of the old one.

    Food for thought anyways.

    Fully agreed.  You could then do things like set up the first field as "SUV's" or "sedans" and then choose based on the first choice, like "Forerunner" or "Rav4" etc.  You could then report on all SUV's or all Cars, as well as the individual types in each subgroup.

    The inability to inherit custom field data is a huge roadblock for us. The duplicate data entry across parent/child is prone to error and makes our reports inaccurate and therefore meaningless. When users cannot trust that the data is correct, they are reluctant to use/rely on the new system. This is wreaking havoc on our Wrike utilization figures.

    Hey everybody this is a +1 for me: takes me an intolerable amount of time to manually go through custom fields, so please automate these things
