Unlock the baked-in prioritization of tasks and projects

As CEO of an e-commerce company I have tasks and projects alike that requires an internal prioritization order. You might say a true backlog on company level.

The baked-in sorting of task and projects has little to no value other than pleasing my OCD and general prettiness-factor.

Would it be possible to have no restrictions on sort order regardless of space project or task?

AGILE Project Prioritization...

 

YES - our team really enjoys the abilities that come with making a project and actual "project" in WRIKE, but I am UNABLE TO PRIORITIZE our large backlog via drag and drop if I make all of my projects WRIKE projects. 

 

If we could drag and drop PROJECTS as we can tasks, that would resolve most of my headaches with WRIKE!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Thanks a lot for your feedback and gifs here, I don't think I've ever seen so many of them on one thread on our Community 😄

Hope you don't mind if I ask some additional info here - do I understand correctly that you're talking about dragging and dropping projects in the List View? Do you need this to be able to have a clear view of the projects according to their priority? Because it's so, one way to achieve this would be to create folders like "Priority: High", "Priority: Medium" and "Priority: Low", apply colours to them (for example, red, yellow and green) and tag your projects with those folders. Could you please let me know if this approach could help? Thanks!

Hi Lisa,

 

Thank you for reaching back out to us! As you can see, we're actually pretty thrilled to get this functionality. 

 

To answer your question, unfortunately, the project ranking we need has to operate exactly as tasks do on the table view (and list view). We need to be able to DRAG AND DROP projects in order of priority and not by custom fields of folders, as this is the most proper way to sort through the backlog. 

 

In other words, I should be able to open up my backlog and see (from top to bottom) all projects in the backlog from top to bottom. 

 

I am more than happy to jump on a call with you to show you our request and walk you through the business need. 

 

Thank you for your time!

Has there been any movement on this idea?  I, too, would love to see this implemented.

Hi Tina Mason, welcome to the Community!

Apologies for the late reply here! I've checked with the team, and they have plans to research sorting by priority in 2021. I'll let you know once I have more info on this.

I guess I'd like to weigh in on this with a slightly different use case.

I am a software product manager that currently uses Wrike to manage my strategic work. I intentionally keep this work in a different system from the execution work. Execution work is in Jira and due to lack of a real prioritization feature in Wrike I am under pressure to move that work to Jira. I REALLY don't want to do that.

The priorities of "High", "Normal", and "Low" are just not granular enough for the PM use case. Even if I created a custom field and created my own priority options, it is still a clunky work around. I need a relative priority system.  That means NOTHING can be the same priority. The priority is relative to the work items around it, meaning above and below. If I have 100 work items, I have 100 priorities. I can drag and drop and Wrike automagically change the priority numbers accordingly.

This is how product management (and development) works. I have used many other tools and almost always been able to assign relative priority. The fact that your product management team can't wrap their mind around this (I'm making this assumption as this request was opened a long time ago) or it's importance, surprises me greatly. Rally, ProdPad and even some tools I hate (Jira, Aha, etc.) all have this capability. If you want to compete with these tools (and your marketing collateral makes me believe you do) this is a must have enhancement.

I'd be happy to walk a fellow product manager through this if there still is ambiguity as to what the need is and why it is important.

Hi Lowell Higley, thanks for taking the time to share this detailed feedback with us here, we appreciate it. 

I wanted to share a little bit more detail on how we work with Product feedback. We have a process in place for how we decide what gets worked on and you can read more about it in this Community post. When a post gets 60+ upvotes, we'll add a status which indicates if the team have plans for this. As this suggestion is yet to reach the threshold, we don't have any information to share here currently, but we'll be sure to let you know if there are any changes to that. 

If there's anything else I can help with don't hesitate to ask. Oh and welcome to the Community 🙂
