[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Set "Required" custom fields

Currently a user can create a custom field for their projects and tasks. 

 

It would help if, there was a way to set these custom fields as required.

And, if the problem is because the fields are specific to the user, then I would like the ability to make custom global fields that are required.

It's the missing ingredient in custom fields. They're useful for one person. but human nature means they might not get filled out, unless forced.

Maybe there's already a way, or already a suggestion for this

Hi Regina Ball, thanks for getting back to me. I totally do understand, I'll pass on your feedback to the team. 

Florian Kislich, thank you for the feedback! The good news is the team is working on Automation this year and there might be more news 👀

Hi - We also have the same need to make custom fields required for certain blueprint / work templates - whether the task is in certain statuses or when completing a task.  

I'm considering of using other tools that enforce this validation as this is really hard to swallow that Wrike doesn't have this feature.

Hi Benjamin Lee,

are you aware of requestforms in wrike? Using this you can mark every question as required, including custom fields.

Adding a vote to include this feature, it is much needed! Utilizing required fields in the request form won't work for our needs - we need a feature that won't allow the user to mark a project status "complete" until all custom fields are completed. Please prioritize this with your development team - thanks!

Unbelievable, this feature has been suggested since 2017, OP received 200+ likes and has not been taken seriously.

My team really needs to be able to make certain custom fields mandatory. We have also expressed that with our account reps a few years ago.

This is making our reporting time more than double as our team has grown globally. 

This update shouldn't affect customers who don't need it, but be tremendously helpful for those who do. 

If this isn't addressed I will be suggesting we move into another platform that does.

I'm agree with you, really bad customer experience!  customer centric, customer voice, customer satisfaction...blabla.  May be not significant in the Wrike company..

Unfortunately i think to change of platform for these little things

Hi folks, thank you for reaching out!

Please allow me to share some detail on how this Product Feedback forum works. We have a voting system here where any Wrike user can upvote a suggestion when visiting the Community. There are other ways to let us know your feedback, and the Community is one of them. We have a process for reporting all suggestions, feedback, and votes from this forum to our Product team, and they continuously review all of this data.
Once any suggestion reaches the 60 votes threshold, we add a Product status to it. You can check out more info on that and on the list of statuses in this post. The status for this particular suggestion is currently 'Backburner', which means that the team has been reviewing and continues to receive the feedback here, but they can't prioritize it over other planned releases and enhancements. If we do have an update for this suggestion in the future, we will let you know about it here in this thread.
Our team can't commit to working on all or even most of the suggestions in this forum, but at the same time, feedback from this channel is important to them. As an example, here's the list of Community-generated suggestions that the team has released last year.
If you have any questions or concerns, I'm happy to let your Account team know about this so that you can discuss it case-by-case.

I hope this info was helpful, but if you have any questions, please let me know.
