Recalculate custom fields trigger for closed objects at least for Sys Admins

If there was an error in a field calculation, the calculation methodology has been changed or the field has not been updated for any reasons before the project closure, the calculated field just crashed, there is no easy solution to fix it, we have to go ahead and open up projects one by one and that would distort the Project's Actual Completion date.


Talking to the Support I had no satisfactory solution to fix my problem as the list of the impacted records is giant.

We badly need this feature to make our reports reliable and to enable the report specialist to be absolutely sure that the calculations are correct.

I also need to recalculate calculated fields on older/closed projects and requests. We slowly have been adding new calculated fields as we've matured, but in order to get historical data on older projects, we have to reopen them, recalculate, then reclose the projects. This is crazy time-consuming. The ability for at least system admins to update fields on closed projects is critical.
