Job Roles in Reports

The new job role function is a really useful feature that needs to be more readily available in different areas of Wrike. It is only possible to use this feature in individual tasks and in the workload view but not in reports, dashboards or anywhere else. In order to predict and plan resource against capacity in future, it would be great to be able to pull Job Roles into reports the same way we can assignees.

Hannah, you mention using Roles in workload view. How do you do this? I don't see how to add a role to a workload chart, only users and groups.

I fully agree that you need the job roles and the assignee's in one overview to enable good resource planning

Hey everybody, thank you for all of your feedback! It's been passed on to the Product team.

Jason, you can see job roles on the Workload chart if you click add grouping in the top left corner of the chart. The option to group by job role should appear then 😊

@...  Yes, this allows you to group by role, but it still only shows assigned tasks. It does not show you a Role as a generic holder for assignments. You have to use the Backlog Box to see those; they are not included in the actual workload chart section.

Hannah Corbett, thanks for submitting this. I tried exporting a project plan to excel and the job role function didn't appear in any of the assignments. This was really disappointing. Any update on this from the Product Team?

Hi Lisa, sorry just to check are you releasing the ability to export job roles in to reporting? Or are you saying it will be feasible to assign tasks to job roles in the workload view rather than the backlog view.

Lisa  I have noticed that Roles are not included in reports recently, but I thought for sure that they were working before. I have a big report that I export in order to calculate resource forecasts over time (something that Wrike doesn't really do). This is an important report built in Excel with a lot of data and calculations. 

I used to export the report and dump the data in, but now I am seeing that all of the assignees that are Roles are missing. In my old versions of the export I see roles included. I feel that this stopped within the last couple of weeks or months.

Now it takes me a very long time to go back through the exported report and fill in all of the roles that weren't included. This is very time consuming and makes this weekly update take several hours to do. 

Why did this get removed and how soon will it get fixed?

 

Thank you.

Hi Jason Pontius, Job Roles are not available in Reports yet. Could it be the case that the file you have mentioned was the export of the Table View? That's where you can have Job roles:

​Table View format is very similar to the format of Reports, and you could create a Custom Table View and use it for export as a temporary workaround until Job Roles are released in Wrike Reports. Would that work for you?

Please also subscribe to Weekly Release Notes to stay up-to-date about new improvements, we have so many plans for this year!🙌

Lisa K., no I was not exporting from the table view. I have a report that I use to export all tasks and efforts so that I can generate a forecast heat map of workload over the next year with graphs, summaries, etc. Each time I export, I have to go back in and manually add in all of the roles since they don't export. 

I don't believe I used to have to do this. I have been using this report for many months and I don't recall having to re-enter these roles every time. 

In either case, I really need roles to be included in the report just as users are. The Assignee field should include whatever is assigned in the tasks, be it roles or users. Otherwise the report is not true to the actual task data.

Table view really doesn't work because that would have to be for a single container (folder, space, project, etc.).  My report includes data from multiple spaces as it is all of the active and potential work from design, production, sales, etc.

Thank you.

Jason Pontius, I understand that having Job Roles in the Report would be much more convenient than exporting tasks from the Table view. While we don't have an ETA to share yet, our developers are planning to make Job roles available in native Reports (and other places across the platform) soon. In the meantime, let me suggest a couple of workarounds:

  • Tag all the folders you currently have in the report within a single Space/Folder and export it from the Table view.
  • Use a Custom Field for Job Role.
  • Create dummy users and assign tasks to them instead of Job roles.

The workarounds are not perfect, but maybe they could be useful while our engineers are working on the enhancement. We will do our best to improve your experience with us and make sure you have the best resources for capacity planning. Please stay tuned for updates! 😊

I would like to comment on Job roles.
We used the Job roles as a dummy user, so the quantity has increased a bit.
I tried to check the existing Job roles.
In account management:
- I can't check who created Job roles and when.
- I can't cut and copy the Job roles list.
In activity report:
- It is no information of Job roles ㏌ audit operation as "Work Item Assigned".
In Backup:
- There is no files of Job roles in the backup.
- work_assignee.csv does not include Job roles records.

If you have plan of Job roles enhance in the future, consider these items as well.

Came across this thread as having job roles in Wrike reports is important for us too!  Wondering what the status is on this feature as I saw it was to be released this year?  Thank you!
