This field is used in a template and cannot be edited

I have created a field in my project called Task progress this is not from an existing template when I go to edit this one field I get the following message

Hi @Hilary_Williams and welcome to the forum:wave:,

It looks like this is an Asana created field based on the description. You are unable to edit any of those that are created by Asana. If you created a custom field you may have grabbed the wrong one when importing into your project. I’ve done that before, especially if my custom field is called something similar to the Asana created one.

Asana has changed some of the features within custom fields so there are more notifications about when they are in use across the organization before you delete something. For more information about custom fields you can read more in their documentation.
