Custom Views: Push view to child projects and folders

Custom Views are a good start, but the are only available on the project or folder view where you first build it. If you go down one level they disappear.

Really we need an option to push a view we are happy with to all the child folders and projects.

The only way to get this now is to be very meticulous about building blueprint and then ensuring that all of the projects are created from that blueprint or duplicated from a project with the views.

Another example where Wrike does do what we want but it is very fiddly and fragile. Touch your nose, stand on one leg and spin counter clockwise and it works perfectly :)

Stretch goal: Allow administrators to add custom views as universal options to the Add view to this project menu.

A simple "Copy this view, or Use Existing Custom View" option in the dropdown list would also accomplish this. As Owen noted, while the custom views are awesome, it's a process that becomes more painstaking than necessary. It would be absolutely awesome to get a "Views" section in the account admin area that would show View Type (List, Table, etc.), Sort Tasks By, Filters, and Custom Fields included.

This! We manage a lot of creative projects/timelines within client folders in Wrike and I wanted to set up a Custom View that shows only timeline-related fields for the purposes of exporting a "timeline" .xls file for clients (and vendors). Would be great to do it once and have the child folders assume rather than manually creating each time.

This! It would be great if the default view could be set at the top level, and all projects and sub-projects would be a lifesaver. It would be even better though if there was an area in the admin where we could set the default view for all projects, folders, and spaces.

Any updates on this? We are also in desperate need of applying custom table views with columns in a specific order to multiple folders, rather than having to create each one every time in different folders. Please, please make this possible! :)

To add another use case to this, we have some custom views created in Blueprints, but we've run into a situation where we want to make a change to that custom view and apply it to all projects that include that custom view. Like others have said, some admin way to have custom views and update them on projects would be great.
