    Hey Evan,

    This is a commonly requested feature that I'm not sure Wrike will implement. This thread has a fair amount of traction: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115003695025-Delete-custom-fields-

    As a work around for us, I basically rename those custom fields and prepend it with a "z" so it's at the bottom of the list. Further more, I'll revoke who has access to the field, so not everyone can see it. Then, when I want to create a new custom field, I'll check to see if there are any "z" fields available and repurpose those before creating a new one. Something like this:

    Having said that, it would be nice to have these deleted, but until that happens, this seems to work fairly well for us.

    Best,

    Tim

    Thanks @Tim!

    Beautiful screenshots.ย 

    We have a similar system in place now to mark items as "z.Delete" and assign them to a designated admin.

    Best,
    Evan

    The fact that an administrator cannot manage this is a bit troubling. End users shouldn't be adding custom anything, even though the concept "sells" well. We can clearly see the mess it makes.ย
