Option to auto-assign new/added tasks to task creator

Would be helpful to have a check box somewhere (settings?) that any new task that is created has the creator made the assignee.

Hello John Rakoczy, thank you for posting, I've shared your feedback with our Product team.
 
In the meanwhile, I wanted to check with you a workaround using the Automation Engine. You can create a rule if a new task is created, @mention the author. The task author can then assign themselves to the task.
 
  
 
Do you think that'd be helpful for now?

@... that is a little helpful but not useful because you can't apply it to all spaces in an account ☹️  Automation limits the number of spaces a rule can apply to, and I think it is capped at 8 which we passed long ago.

Thanks for the reply John Rakoczy, I understand it's not an ideal situation. The Product team is aware of your feedback and if there are any plans to introduce this I'll be sure to let you know!

I would love to see this functionality both for task and for project.  If either are created, automation rule available to assign to creator.

Checking to see if there is any consideration currently being given to this?  Checked again recently to see if it was possible through automation and it's not.  We'd like to auto-assign the project to the creator as well as the tasks in certain scenarios.

Hi Elaine

although this is a relativley new request with few votes, I can't beleive it is the first one for this basic topic. I even requested this feature during our onboarding process several years ago.

I read this topic quite often everywhere in the community, for exaple here: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/17958738979735/comments/18018242948375 and here: Shortcut missing for "assign me" – Wrike Help Center

I think wrike should show more interest on basic features, like preventing unassigned tasks.

... please also refer to this article: Automatic assign yourself on private tasks. – Wrike Help Center (discussion in comments!) and this one: Assign a task based on its folder/project (default task owner) – Wrike Help Center

Hi Florian Kislich, thank you for your comments. I shared a similar suggestion with you in a different thread, but I'll include it here as well: tasks are automatically assigned to their author when created in My to-do section. Would this be an option for you? Otherwise, please feel free to share more details about your use case so we can better understand it and provide you with an accurate reply.

Thank you!
