Project Status

Table 9. Availability - Legacy plans


Any users except for collaborators can change project status if they have a full or editor access role.

Use project statuses to indicate how your project is progressing. As your project advances, update it with the relevant status. The status you choose will be displayed in the status field and changed to the relevant color.

Professional and Free accounts have five default statuses:

  • New

  • In Progress

  • Completed

  • On Hold

  • Cancelled

Business and Enterprise accounts can set their project to have any of their custom workflows.

By default new projects are created with the New status, or the first status in the custom workflow you assigned the project.

Change project status

There are several ways to change project status in Wrike:

  • From the project item view click the status field 1 and choose from the drop-down menu 2 . Click the preferred workflow status of the project.

  • Navigate to the space where the project is located and right-click the project from the left-hand panel. Next, select Change status 1 from the list and choose a status from the drop-down menu 2.

  • In Table view, Click on the three-dot button 1 or Right-click the relevant project, select Change status 2, and choose a status from the drop-down menu 3.


All of these methods give Business and Enterprise users the option to change the workflow of one of their custom workflows.


You can filter out completed and canceled projects so they don't clutter the left-hand navigation in a space. Hover over Projects and folders, click the three-dot menu 1 that appears and select which projects you want to show up in the left-hand panel 2.
