Approvals showing up in Dashboards, Reports, My to-do

Hi there,

We love the new Approvals and how they integrate into the workflow! There is one issue though that is deflating the experience: Approvals don't show up in Dashboards, Reports or My to-do.

When I am assigned as an Approver for a task, I only get an E-mail Notification and it shows up in my inbox.

When some-one gets a lot of approvals assigned to them, or an approval is scheduled a bit in advance, it gets lost in the Inbox really easy. We use Dashboards to keep our teams on-task, and because Approvals don't show up on the dashboards, they tend to slip through the cracks - exactly the opposite of what we want Wrike to do for us!

It would be great if they could show up in as a minimum the Dashboards so we can track who's doing what & when.

Thanks,

Jaco

This is a critical piece of being able to effectively leverage approvals.

You can add an Approvals widget to your dashboard - this is what we've done. It's one of the filters.

But I agree they should appear, like tasks do, in other views through Wrike

Dropped here at this page for the same issue.

I need in particular to report approvals (who approved, who is pending to approve, who rejected) in a report column.

As of today I need to manually update an export to excel file.

Please Wrike Team! Thumbs up!

I agree - this at the very minimum should show in My To-Do. However, I can't even get the Dashboard widget to work. I don't want to work this hard to know that I need to approve something.

100% agree - approvals need to show in my to-do as a minimum. Too easily lost otherwise.

We need this functionality as well. Approvals should appear in "my to-do".

An approvers dashboard should show the due date of the approval - not the due date of the task. An approval is started and assigned to someone with a due date - that's the date that should populate in the approvers dashboard. This seems like it would be super easy fix.

I have the approvals widget on our dashboard but it isn't functioning. I have looked at all the filters and I have a pending approval that should be showing up and it's not. I agree with others on that an approval should be added as a task or react the same way as a task, it gets so lost and forgotten in the inbox system.

Chiming in to add my voice to this feature request. We have collaborators who do nothing but review. They do not request work, have task assignments and do not need any other functionality in Wrike. But they may have a number of items to review at a given time. Since collaborators cannot view dashboards, it would be great if their approvals would show up in My to-do since the inbox isn't the most intuitive view for infrequent users & doesn't give them an indication if they have completed a review or not.

I don't use the to-do list because I can't control the output. I really need this in a dashboard feature widget. But yes approvals get lost in my stream because I have so much "streaming" in there.

Many members of my team aren't assigned to tasks, but are added as "Approvers", so much of their time is spent looking over files. We have weekly meetings where I share a report of our teams' workload and current project count and completion. I would like to be able to report on how many tasks or files have been approved by team members so their workload is also visible to the team. Is there a way to do this?
