Custom fields optimizer


I've run Custom fields optimizer on '0 project' fields, so it changed Context from Global to No context so this fields is no longer available on screen.

Did I miss something or this feature is dangerous?

It's not dangerous, it doesn't remove fields from screens, it just changes the context to "where a field has been used".

Hi Guillaume,

It shouldn't be dangerous, but I would check if it actually did anything int eh background. When I did it on the 0 context fields it didn't actually execute a change.

However, I would also suggest reaching out to your users and setting a delete date for those fields. If they aren't being used they are causing unnecessary overhead in the instance.
