Overview

All users (except collaborators) on all paid accounts can use date rollup.

By default, start and end dates for all items within Wrike are completely independent. For example, if you have a task with subtasks, the task and its subtasks can have different dates (they aren't automatically aligned). The same holds true for project dates and the dates of tasks within it.

You can roll up dates from the Gantt chart. Rolling up dates means that a top-level item’s dates are based on the dates of items within it. When you roll up dates:

  • Start date: the earliest date that an item within it starts

  • Due date: the latest date that an item within it ends

Important

This is an experimental feature, and as a result, it may have bugs, is subject to change, and may be discontinued at any time. Please feel free to use the feedback links in Wrike Labs to share your thoughts on this beta feature.

Enable dates rollup from Labs

All users (except collaborators) on all paid accounts can enable dates rollup from Labs for their individual accounts.

  1. Visit Wrike Labs.

  2. Scroll to Roll up dates on the Gantt chart.

  3. Click Enable.

Note

If the feature is enabled, the bracket will be displayed with the project’s own dates as a bold filling, while the part representing dates of tasks that fall outside this timeframe will have no filling on the timeline, just an outline. This way you can see the actual dates of the project and when tasks in this project are scheduled.

How to roll up dates

To roll up an item's dates:

  1. Navigate to a folder, project, or space you need and switch to the Gantt Chart.

  2. In the table portion of the Gantt chart, right-click the parent task or project with dates you want to roll up.

  3. Select Item Rollup.

The parent task or project’s dates change and are rolled up from the items within it.

Note

If you roll up dates for a top-level item and no item within it has scheduled dates, then the top-levels dates are cleared.

To roll up dates for all items within a branch (all items nested within one item):

  1. In the table portion of the Gantt chart, right-click the parent task or project with dates you want to roll up.

  2. Select Branch Rollup.

Wrike starts rolling up dates starting from the bottom. Dates are progressively rolled up for items higher up in the branch until the dates on the selected parent task or project are rolled up.

Note

When rolling up dates, Wrike only takes visible items into account (i.e., items that are hidden by filters aren't taken into account).
