Can collaborators create their OWN to dos?

We are implementing Wrike so that we can get rid of Basecamp and Trello. We would like to set up most of our employees as collaborators to ensure that our project process flows smoothly but we would like collaborators to have the opportunity to add to dos to their OWN board. 

For example: Trello allows me to have my own board so I can assign/prioritize my day to day items that are not project specific. 

I've played around with the collaborator role and I don't see the ability to create tasks for myself. Anyone know if that's possible?


Thanks

Hi Marcia, welcome to Wrike! :) The Collaborator license is intended mainly for clients/partners outside of your company or team, these are users who typically don't need to create any data, and this is why their user license permissions are limited. This also means you can have unlimited Collaborators in the account. If someone from your team needs to create data, we recommend granting them regular user access, and if there's someone outside of your team/company with that need, an external user license will work best. Check out our post about When to Make Someone a Collaborator for some more tips, and definitely let me know if you have any other questions! :)

This line of thought is strange.   There is another user type out there - someone who isn't a project or process owner, will not be building projects or creating custom fields, but mainly gets assigned work and should be able to update custom fields, organize and create their own personal tasks, etc.  This is my biggest gripe about Wrike, which is otherwise a great tool:  Give me a license type than is between a regular user and a collaborator that is more than "free" but a lot less than a regular user. I want to only pay for what I use, and while Wrike offers some superior functionality compared to its competitors, I'm not sure that the value delivered per $$ is there as I have to pay for a regular license for someone who just needs to log in an update more than just the status or add a comment, but will NEVER build out a whole space or project plan, or own a project.  With the introduction of custom fields and item types, it's strange that it never occurred that when a custom item or field is built, we might need someone to just update that field and log out.

Thanks a lot for such detailed feedback Andrew Cornell

I would suggest looking into access roles, but that would still be customizing access of regular users. Our team is also researching potential user license updates, we'll keep the Community posted on any news 🙂
