New Dashboards

Table 1. Availability - Legacy plans


New Dashboards are available to all users on paid accounts except for collaborators.

New Dashboards offer enhanced customization for a deeper understanding of project KPIs and task progress.

Customization at Your Fingertips: Create, customize, and save various charts as widgets, enabling personalized views for operational and analytical purposes.Robust Features for User Empowerment: Engage with capabilities like widget duplication, intuitive drag-and-drop organization, effective grouping, innovative navigation, and public link creation.

Analytical Enhancements: Utilize comprehensive features such as date breakdowns, simultaneous multiple metrics analysis, and detailed approvals reporting.

Chart View Enhancement: A specialized chart view, leveraging the same visualization engine as New Dashboards, focuses on graphical data representation. Available at the space, folder, or project level, it complements the dashboard experience without aggregating data across spaces, a feature unique to New Dashboards.

Empowering Decision-Making: Designed to meet diverse user requirements, New Dashboards facilitate enhanced decision-making through extensive customization, adaptability, and collaborative functionalities, ensuring users can harness the full potential of their project data.

New dashboards have been designed to cater to diverse user needs and enhance decision-making processes through flexibility, customization options, and collaborative features. Key highlights include:

  • Data Source: You will have the ability to pull data from multiple locations like folders, projects, and spaces. To do this, you must have the necessary permissions to access these locations. In other words, you must have direct access to these locations or these folders, projects, and spaces need to be shared with you.

  • Layout Options: You can choose between a flat list or hierarchical layout for organizing data, providing visibility or nesting as required.

  • Widget Resizing: Widgets are resizable, allowing you to adjust their size based on preferences and the amount of information displayed.

  • Sharing Dashboards: When you create a dashboard it will be private and visible only to you until you choose to share it and start collaborating.

  • Adding New Fields: You can add new fields or data points to widgets, enabling customization to meet evolving business needs.

  • Groupings: Grouping functionality helps organise and categorise data within widgets, facilitating analysis and understanding.

  • Public Links: Now, you can easily share a dashboard via public links outside of your team, plan, or even organization. Anyone with the link can view this dashboard, but they cannot edit or open items to see more detail.


New Dashboards will only have access to fields and data elements that are available in the plan that customers are subscribed to.


Access New Dashboards

You can access your dashboards from the sidebar under the More button 1 . In addition, all dashboards in Wrike belong to one particular space, so they can also be accessed under Tools  2 in the sidebar. While each dashboard can belong to only one space, they can contain data from any number of other folders, projects, and spaces.

If you're a space admin, now you'll be able to create new dashboards and widgets in the space that you manage. If you're not a space admin, you'll be able to view new dashboards created in spaces that you have access to.


Upgrade existing Dashboards to New Dashboards (and revert back if necessary)

To upgrade to New Dashboards, here's how to proceed:

  1. Navigate to Dashboards 1 either from the sidebar or from tools in the space you are in.

  2. Next, open the dashboard you want to convert.

  3. Click the Upgrade to new Dashboards 2 button. The next time you access this dashboard, it will appear as a new dashboard rather than the classic version.

  • If you want to convert it back, click the Three-dot menu 3 on the toolbar and select Return to classic Dashboards 4 .


The next time you access this dashboard, it will appear as a new dashboard rather than the classic version.


Dashboards that have been converted can be found within the Tools section of their respective spaces. If a dashboard wasn't linked to any space, it can be located in the tools section of the dashboard creator's Personal space. Additionally, they can be accessed in the dashboard list under the "Dashboards" category.


If I Share a Dashboard, What Can My Teammates See?

When you share a dashboard, your teammates' visibility of the tasks within the widgets depends on the specific sharing settings applied to those tasks or folders.

  • Shared Widgets Based on Account-wide Tasks: If you create a widget that compiles tasks from across the entire account, teammates can only view the tasks that are shared with them. This ensures that each user's view is customized based on their access permissions.

  • Widgets Based on Unshared Folders: When a widget is configured to display tasks from a folder that isn't shared with a user, that widget will appear empty for them. This applies even if the user has access to some tasks or subitems within that folder.


Always verify the sharing settings of your folders and tasks to ensure that your dashboard displays the intended information to your teammates.

How Can I Ensure Subtasks Are Visible and Not Hidden Under Parent Tasks in a Widget?

By default, subtasks are nested under their parent tasks within a widget. To make each subtask visible separately, follow these steps:

  • Click on the three-dot menu at the upper corner of the widget.

  • Select the 'Show as a flat list' option from the dropdown menu.

This action will display all subtasks separately within the widget, ensuring none are missed during your review.


Utilizing the 'Show as a flat list' feature can significantly enhance the visibility of all tasks and subtasks, making your dashboard more effective for task management and tracking.
