Custom fields are great. But we are a big organization with a lot of departments that don’t know each other, and we’ve now stepped on each other’s toes a lot without meaning to. We find it quite surprising to edit the custom fields in one project and suddenly get a phone call from someone we’ve never met, asking why we messed up their completely unrelated project.
Luckily, the UI does give you enough clues to figure it out: there is a warning that fields are shared across all projects, and there is also a change history for each custom field, so we can actually figure out who to get in touch with. That’s great!
But really, what I want is custom fields that I know only affect a single project.
