WrikeBot - Subtask Completion does not necessarily have any bearing on Primary Task Completion

I'm not sure why the default logic here is that if a subtask is finished that it has any relationship at all to the primary task being finished, triggering a pseudo-helpful prompt into my email notifications. 

I use subtasks as just that and the completion of a subtask is of course in the vector of complete, but the completion of any subtask has absolutely no bearing on the completeness of the total project.

If accounting creates an estimate for me on a subtask and completes it when my primary task is tracking a physical object through 10 more steps, the extra email from WrikeBot is not only unnecessary, it's becoming annoying. My primary case has so many other things to do in it before I create another subtask that I need a pack slip to send a repaired object back out, and THEN it still stays active, because I'm not creating sub-tasks for every action I take, I move tasks in and out of multiple folders to track progress.

I agree Brad! We need to be able to disable that notification.

A simple checkbox "don't show again" would be amazing.

Definitely agree here, Brad and Dave. Being able to disable Wrike Bot would be great for my team as well. Can we make this an option, folks at Wrike?

Hi all, you can now disable product-related emails that come from the Wrike Bot. View your Profile, by clicking the profile image on the top right of the Workspace. Then select Email Subscription from the left-hand side tabs. Scroll to the bottom until you see Product Reminders. You can now choose to untick the checkbox so you won't receive these emails.
 
Any questions, let me know 🙂

My issue is not with emails, it's in the pop-up message that comes up constantly, asking me if I want to complete the associated parent or sub-tasks. I very rarely do!

Hi Dave, thanks for your Feedback on this. My post above is specifically about the email notifications. I understand that an option to remove the prompt to complete the parent tasks after subtasks are complete may not be needed in some cases. Our Product Team are aware of this post, however, this change is not on their short-term roadmap. If there's any update I'll post here. 
 
@Everyone, please make sure to upvote and comment your use cases to help our Product Team understand the need and implementation of this suggestion. Thank you 👍
