Can I make custom fields read only for some users and editable for others?

 I see that I can share custom fields with particular groups or users.  Can I make custom fields visible to all users but editable for only some?

Hi Daniel, thanks for this question and welcome to the Community!  You can edit the Folder and Project permissions of users so that they can only complete certain actions in those Folders and Projects. By setting a user with Limited access they won't be able to edit Custom Fields.
 
Alternatively, If you add users as Collaborators they can view Custom Fields but they cannot edit their values. Check out our Types of Licenses to see what else Collaborators can do in the account. This article from Stephanie about what Collaborators see in your Wrike account may be useful to you too.
 
There is no option to selectively decide which regular users can edit Custom Fields only, but it's an interesting idea. Perhaps you'd be interested in suggesting it in our Product Feedback section so others can vote and discuss it's implementation.

Hi

As this post has been quiet for some time now, I was wondering if we have any recent changes facilitating this request. We have a similar use case: custom fields visible to all users, but only editable by a selected group.

The workarounds suggested in the previous post are not applicable in our use case because users needs editing some custom fields in the same folder.

Many thanks.

Hi Paco Cuesta, thank you for reaching out! Apart from Access Roles that Stephen mentioned previously, there are no changes in relation to editing custom fields. 

Just in case you missed this update, our team has recently released custom field management section in settings that allows account admins to access the account-wide custom field management.
