    Agreed! I had these fields set up in a way that worked for me. I do NOT need them alphabetically, if I did I would have set it up that way. I need them the way I originally had them setup. Please change it back, or give the option to reorder them.

    Ja ich stimme den Kollegen zu, in DE ist es auch notwendig die "custom fields" zu sortieren.
    Eine alphabetische Sortierung macht wenig Sinn. Vielen Dank.

    Agree with the urgency and importance of the order of custom fields.

    Alphanumerical order makes absolutely no sense because it does not cluster the custom fields that are related or relevant, nor does it help in displaying the most important batch for individual use cases (for project managers, portfolio managers, regional specialists, engineers, back offiice staff, branch mangers, etc.).

    We have custom fields that are used globally by various use cases, local custom fields by country, custom fields that are only relevant to certain areas or regions, etc. So naming or numbering them in a consistent way across the whole account is not possible.

    I've also commented on the original "Brough to you by Wrike" post: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360044203093--From-Wrike-Custom-Field-Update-?page=1#community_comment_360012067133

    Please change it back! We also had our custom fields sorted logically, not alphabetically. Alphabetic may be useful in some situations but definitely not all. Giving users the option to use the default (alpha) sort or a custom sort would be optimal.

    Thank you.

    ADMIN .

    When we originally setup our custom fields, we were advised that if we wanted to control the custom field arrangement on the project list view, use the table view and arrange columns.  We did this, and it had worked perfectly.  Now, the view has changed to alphabetically arranged and not helpful at all for us.  Please give clients back the ability to arrange the custom field views so that it reflects how their project teams need to see the data.  Thanks you for your consideration.
