Types of Tasks with Estimated Time to Complete

It would be great to categorize tasks in ways like:

  • Blog Post Writing
  • Design a Marketing Slick
  • Publishing Blog Post
  • Design Logo
  • Design Stationery
  • Design Brand Guide

Then Wrike learns how long tasks in that category typically take to complete after category has been used 3 or more times with the same person assigned. Then when you assign a new task with that category, it can estimate how long it will take for that assignee to complete.

So let's say John Doe is a copywriter and it takes 25 minutes for blog one, 41 minutes for blog two, and 33 minutes for blog three. When John is assigned to blog four, it will then say "Estimated 33 minutes to complete task"

This would be a helpful feature because everyone has a different role with various tasks in my marketing team and when our managers are assigning tasks, it would be helpful to see that there are 5 things assigned and how long those 5 things might take someone so they know if they have light or heavy time-consuming projects.

Hi Casey Capece, welcome to the forums 👋 We're happy to have you!

I agree with Pietro Poli, I'd definitely suggest checking out custom item types (CITs) - they allow you to create fully customizable task- and project-based item types that can be tailored to the needs of your whole organization or specific departments and teams, like objectives, key results, user stories, bugs, requests, HR candidate cards, or any other item type you need. For your use case, these could be custom types for blog posts, design, etc. They wouldn't cover your entire use case, so I'll share your idea with our Product team, but can still be a useful tool 🙂

Please let us know if you have any questions!
