    Hi Jeremy, good idea here, thanks for sharing. Custom Field alerts/notifications are not currently on our Product Team's short-term roadmap but these posts help bring it to their attention when reviewing this feature.
     
    As a workaround, you could ask users to @mention assignees when they add a Custom Field. I understand this is not ideal but may help bring it to the attention of the assignees in the task. Thanks for sharing your feedback here!

    I agree with this.

    A custom field is part of the task or project information likely any other and is typically key data that is likely to be tracked in Dashboards and Reports, but doesn't create any notifications email, Wrike inbox when modified, they should, particularly for people who are assigned, who created the task or who is assigned as the Project Owner.

    it will be interesting to see the information in the comments. Like the one used for description update. Date + who.

    "The custom fields were updated."

    Better "the custom field xxx is updated"

    There also needs to be an audit trail of changes to custom fields, by whom and when it was changed.

    @All

    Not exactly what is requested here but I thought you all might be interested in the new history feature now available on Custom Fields 👍

    Since last message here was over a year ago, Trying my luck to see if there is any progress on this one.

    Sure would be handy to have a notification once a custom field is updated.

    If there is no ability to manage security at the field level (like make a particular field read only to specific users, for example) then a feature such as this is very important. I would like to know if someone changes a custom field so we can determine the reason of the change and if it is entirely necessary.

    Example scenario:

    If I am creating a field for baseline date and another custom field with an indicator to show if we are ahead or behind schedule (I know we can do snapshots but I want this to look at multiple project's baselines at once)......

    I only want the PMs or managers to be able to update those fields but would like others to see it for awareness. Others within the team with more than limited and collaborator access should not have the ability to change those dates. So, options would be - 

    1. Have security features by user to make fields visible but read only regardless of the users permission level.
    2. Be able to recieve a notification any time that field is changed on any given project or task. 

    I'm a bit surprised that there are not more people asking for features such as these since it seems like basic functionality that should be available. I'd love to hear other's viewpoints and hopefully get this pushed to the Wrike product team.

    Also looking for this feature.  We are adding a lot of financial information to a large number of projects and it's too manual at the moment to keep track of every custom field change on specific fields.  It would be great it this could be a report or tracked more visibly than at the individual custom field level.  Even just a red dot or some notification in the cell that it's been updated since last viewed in Report or Table view.

    Add me to the list of people that need this functionality! This is slowing down our reporting where we need to manually check for updates to custom fields. Thanks!
