Setting default column order in table view

Fingers crossed that someone has figured this out...

After just over a year in Wrike, I want to standardize the visible columns (including custom) and the order of columns in the table view of Projects.

As the account owner and admin, is it possible to set this up or make a batch edit? Or am I stuck going through 100+ active projects to update each manually?

Thank you!

Hey Susan Richardson!

At the moment, there is no way to mass-edit column orders in Table View across different projects. If you'd like, I can move this suggestion to the Product Feedback section? This way, other users can show their support and pass their feedback on to the Product team.

Agree totally with being able to batch update columns and they stay where they are meant to be - a real pain that every project you look at has table columns all over the place!!!!!!!!!!

How do you set the columns in table view as your default when you go to the page. I'm constantly having to update them. If I create a blue print with a set of columns when I use the blue print will they appear as I have set them in the blue print.

Hello John Brewer, the order of columns you arrange stays as your default for the next time on a project level. If you're looking to have the same order in other projects that's not a subproject of the rearranged one, you'd have to repeat the ordering manually each time.
 
Please let me know if you have any other questions 🙋🏻‍♀️

My working experience with table view is that the column order is undistinguishable from random. There should be a way of setting the column order based on a preset subviews of the table view. As well, there should be a way to mass edit the default column order on a folder, project and space level.

Am i reading correctly, that there is no way to lock what columns are shown on a table? ie: A budget tracking table? I would like to use this table to create a blueprint, so that we automate opening the budget tracker when the project is opened. It is a huge time suck to have to go in and add each of the custom fields and then arrange them in the order that I need them for the doc to be read correctly. This seems like it should be a standard practice, once the table is created?! AND when I added the table as a blueprint, all of my custom fields, as well as my formula fields, are no longer there. Thanks for any help in this matter.

Hi Erin Villareal, welcome to the Community, and thank you for posting. The order you set for the columns is sticky but you cannot lock the columns. Could you please check if you cannot see any of your custom fields under the gear icon?

It’s really annoying have to change column order in table view every time I need to review projects with the same structure. As Stephen Barnecut adequately put it column order looks undistinguishable random. Is there a way of setting column order default?

Hi, we are currently dealing with the same question. We try to understand what is the order of fields (columns) in table view. And why sometimes moving from a project to another it is not the same order ?

Hello Claire Esteban, thank you for your comment. The columns are rearranged per item, which means that if your team sets a certain order for the columns in a project, when opening a different one, the columns will have a different order as well, at least by default.

Please, let us know if you have any additional questions!

Hello! 

I just wanted to put my two cents in here! Being able to add a default column order to a specific view that could be used across items or for all projects in a space would be awesome! Our teams work on thousands  of projects at a time, and certain fields are important to every single project depending on the team (and, our teams manually add the same columns to the table for every project). 

Custom Item Types are great, because you configure the fields shown in the list/item view - but this doesn't really help you in terms of having the ability to view a project or folder and all of its subitems in a consistent way. If you weren't going to add the ability for users or spaces to have custom default tables that could be added to any item (this would be amazing, as it takes our project owners hours to configure projects uniformly) an alternative that could also work to at least reduce the current effort would be to be able to customize the default fields show in table view at the custom item level.
