Hi all, welcome to a bit of product feedback focused on the recently released (and long awaited) custom fields history. So, without-further-a-due...
PROBLEM / USE CASE
I'm very excited to use the new "custom fields history" feature within Wrike, we've been waiting for it for a long time because currently we've had to restrict all our regular users from changing custom fields in most locations to prevent them from changing the features without alerting us. Therefore all changes have to be communicated to my team and then we have to make them manually (in most but not all cases) for our area.
The current manor in which the "custom fields history" is great for if you made a mistake while entering a value or accidentally deleted some data. However it does not actively alert you when a value that you care about is changed, instead you have to notice this yourself and then seek out the information regarding the change yourself.
Due to this limitation of "custom fields history", although there is no reason not to enable it, my team will still be forced to make all changes our selves and not allow customer departments to make changes.
I would like for option (possibly toggle-able in the account options) to report all changes to custom fields in each task's/project's stream (the comments section). This has happened for a long time with date changes, assignee changes and folder changes for example and the options are there to decide whether you would appreciate emailed updates from these (dependent on whether you're following or are assigned the task).
Thanks for taking the time to read this, keep up the great work Wrike and God bless
