    Wow, Zack, thank you so much for this! I'm sure it will be helpful for many people on the Community - I for one didn't know about this option ๐Ÿ‘

    Here's a screenshot to add to your amazing post

    I'd add that you can also rename a Custom Field to reuse it.

    Thank you again Zack, I'm moving your post to the Best Practice section ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Super helpful!ย  As we mature in our use of Wrike certain fields are no longer necessary, so this really helps clean house. ๐Ÿ‘

    I understand you can delete a custom field from the certain folders but is their way to delete the field all together out of Wrike? I've removed a custom field from my blueprint but when I create a new project from my blueprint the field still populates.ย

    Lisaย - I stumbled upon this thread, and it still appears true. Am I looking at this correctly? My options are only to remove it from the folder/project or reuse it as something else? I'm unable to completely delete a custom field entirely from Wrike? If so, this sounds similar to hiding it but in a "more pleasing way."

    Dang. I will have to remember this when creating them. As PM with a team new to Wrike, we're still creating many new processes. This has allowed us to fine tune ourselves as a department, but there are some that may not work or we may not use exactly how we thought. Thus, we would want to entirely delete an item like a custom field when it's not used - and never will be used.

    We'd really like the option to completely erase custom field titles as well!ย
