Custom fields copied from Blueprints

As described on https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360023747733-Custom-fields-in-Blueprints- there is a distinct need to copy the enabled custom fields from a blueprint when using that blueprint functionality. Moreover, allowing users to add custom fields to blueprints gives them the impression that these custom fields will be created when they create the project, which is just not the case. This manual work takes up a lot of time and is something that your competitors offer. This should be a no brainer.

Surprised that I couldn't do this when I tried to. We use tasks for deliverables, and it creates a subtask when someone requests that deliverable in the form. If pulling from a blueprint, it's not able to copy the custom field to indicate the deliverable type.

Until this is fixed I just have to create the task outside of blueprints and pull that in from the form build.

I've tried to activate custom fields on a parent folder and the blueprint, which shows them.  When using the blueprint and placing the project in the folder, it only shows some of the fields.  I think has something to do to whether the field is from a parent, "this folder" or subfolder.

As a user, I expect to see the same functionality across the entire platform so I have a consistent experience. I thought I was going nuts when I didn't see the option between Attachments and Dependencies:

Custom fields on Blueprints would save me time so I don't have to manually tag our "business as usual" tasks for reporting purposes each month - How much work was completed by each team or was a combined effort? Which category was the work for? Which channels did we target? What type of work was it? What was the estimate? - all repeatable data points that serve the team and would save us time if it could be automated.

Would like the opportunity to add in a custom field numeric to a blueprint task.  We sum and roll up "Social Posts" based on subtasks that connect to Marketing Insights.  Currently I have to fill in the custom field in each subtask, but if the custom field was filled in from the blueprint, it would greatly reduce the time needed to fill them all in manually.

We would like the ability to copy Custom Fields when saving a Task as a blueprint. (I understand that this functionality already exists for the creation of Projects from blueprints, but we rarely create Projects from blueprints.)

We would also like the ability to pre-populate Custom Fields in the blueprint. This will prevent us from having to populate the Custom Fields for recurring/repetitive tasks.

Hello Michelle Nordwald, welcome to the Community, and thank you for posting!

I've shared your feedback with our Product team.

May I ask if you've considered using the new Work Templates? They would launch the custom fields you set when creating from it though it's currently not possible to create recurring tasks you can duplicate from it. 

Here is a detailed explanation of how to create task templates, please let me know if this helps 🙋🏻‍♀️
