There are two ways to delete a custom field in Uku. If a custom field is not connected to a task, you can completely erase it. If the custom field is connected to a task, it is not necessary to remove it from each task. Instead, you can archive it. In the case of archiving, the information remains in the report.
Deleting custom fields helps to keep the list of custom fields up-to-date and eliminates the possibility that the employee uses the wrong custom field for tasks.
