Custom fields - cached values

Postby grahamb » Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:16 pm

What are the rules for setting the cached values checkbox for a custom field, i.e. when should it be left unchecked and when should it be checked?

Cached fields updated every time, when you update task (modify it, add message, etc). So, if custom field value depends on CURRENT task properties only - you can cache value safely. But if value depends on system properties (current time) or other tasks - you shouldn't cache it.
