Ability to use task and projects fields as variables in descriptions and comments

Often times I need to mention some information from the task itself when I'm editing or commenting on it. We can mention users and tasks, but my suggestion is to be able to "mention" values from the project or task, specially the custom fields values.

Example/real case:

We have templates for social media posts and they have several custom fields for things like where the post must be published and how much money should be put to promote it. Some of this information like the task title and the other ones I've mentioned are often repeated in the task description or comments. I know this may sound redundant, but often times the information are used/repeated in a context, inside phrases and explanations. Would be great to be able to use them as "variables" and when their values are changed in the custom fields, they are always current in places we want them to be like that.

Hi Neyl Walecki, thank you for sharing these suggestions, I totally understand the need here, especially with the custom fields. I've let the Product team know of your feedback.

I also would like to mention, we do offer quoting from the description field, which I thought might come in handy for you, if you're already not utilizing it 👍🏼

Great suggestion Neyl Walecki!

This should be easy for Wrike to implement because pasting a link automatically puts in the title.  Think of the @ mentions in Google Sheets, allowing cross linking and person tagging.
