Automation Action - Change Custom Field - Dates

Greetings,

I have been digging through the forums and have noticed several people have been asking for similar enhancement that I need(I didn't find it on the product feedback forum).

Add an option on the "Change Custom Field" action to allow you to insert a date into custom field. Have the option to insert today's date, a leading or lagging date, or a static date.

Primary ask is to put today's date in the field the rest would be a bonus

 

Thank you for your consideration

I would love for this to be added! For reports, I need to see what date tasks hit a certain status. 

Currently the only way I can get an accurate read on this is to manually check each task.

This is critical for us! we need the tasks to power dependencies but we need custom fields for reporting. I would love an automation for a custom item type date change to change it's matching custom field date.

This has also been an urgent request from our team. We want to capture the initial due date of our go-live milestones for products and compare the initial date to when the go lives are completed. This will allow us to measure whether we are delivered behind, ahead, or on schedule for various products. The only solution currently is to manually input an initial due date and with over 100 active projects (with multiple products), this is extremely time consuming.

Ben Thomas thanks for the comment, definitely understand that struggle, been doing the same with about 40 projects. 100 sounds beyond overwhelming and error prone

Lisa This is must have. Having an automated pop up "Change Custom Field" action to allow you to insert a date into custom field, may be "Today's Date".  It will save many steps and finding out cycle time between various custom fields will be easier and data we will get be genuine.
Lisa you can merge my post https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/22238763491095-Automations-Custom-Field-Date-as-Action?page=1#community_comment_22474773372695  in this post.
We are already using the solution given by Ped Watt in my post, but this method does not ensuring that crucial date-based data is consistently captured and genuine.

We have the exact same request as Ben Thomas. "This has also been an urgent request from our team. We want to capture the initial due date of our go-live milestones for products and compare the initial date to when the go lives are completed. This will allow us to measure whether we are delivered behind, ahead, or on schedule for various products." Currently, the process is manual, time consuming and error prone. Has there been any updates on when this feature will be added? Thank you.
