It would be SO helpful to us if approvals acted as regular tasks.
We primarily use proofing and approvals in our creative workflows. When we set up our workspace, we didn't have this feature, so we set up our content template in such a way that each step of the workflow was a separate task, like this:
After using Wrike for almost two years and really getting a feel for what works best for us, I would like to move away from this type of set up. To me, the less tasks in the workspace, the better.
So in the example above, I would want to condense this blog post to one to two tasks at most. The individual task would move through a custom workflow and the proofing and approvals would be contained within one task.
The issue everyone has is the fact that if they are assigned to proof and approve something, it doesn't show up in their task list. I know that you can set up dashboard widgets to track files that require your attention, but that doesn't really give us the work visibility we're looking for.
