Wrike calendar pulling in unwanted subtask end dates

I have calendars set up for our emails that we're sending, but when I set my calendar to pull in the live date for our emails, it's pulling in subtasks tasks dates, too. It looks like we're sending 50 emails a week instead of only 2 or 3. How do I get the calendar to hide the subtasks and only show the End date for the parent task? 

Right now I have the calendar set to "Classic" and I am manually adding the emails to my calendar, which is not ideal. We have so many emails a month across multiple teams, I'm afraid I'm going to miss something.

Hello Brittany Stringer, thanks for reaching out!

Unfortunately, Smart Calendar Layers pull up subtasks by default, and there's no way to exclude them.

Here one can think of two workarounds: using a Classic Calendar Layer instead, as you've mentioned it, or you can also create a Custom Field (type "Checkbox"), mark the checkboxes for the relevant tasks, and make sure the Calendar Layer settings are set to include such tasks (Layer settings - "Add Custom Field").
Please note that in order to filter by a specific Custom Field, this field should be applied to the Folder (i.e. seen in the Folder) selected as the source for your Calendar ("Include tasks from" section). 

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the workaround.  One would think that a filtering option to include or exclude subtasks from calendars would be useful to many.

Hi
It is a shame that you cannot filter out the subtask. I want to do reports with the calendar for my managers and they dont really care about the subtask. Any plans to add this funcionality?
