Enable the Add new Task window at either the top or bottom of the task list.

Please enable the "new Task" window at either the top or bottom of the task list. This would allow users to create new tasks that are automatically assigned the highest (or lowest) priority.

Another great feature would be to right-click on tasks in the list view and select "add new task above" or "add new task below" to immediately place a task in the correct spot based on its priority.

Using the scrum process, I always have to move newly created tasks to another location in the list, and this involves lots of dragging and scrolling through a very long list.

@Michael, I understand how this would make sense for your team based on how you're creating and organizing work, it's a great use case. Thanks for posting here!

@Michael Great suggestion.

I would like to point out that we should keep the maximum room available for cards within the Board Layout. In case Wrike enabled this feature, it would probably make sense to keep the original position of the button for adding cards, but enabling your second suggestion, then we would allways have the possibility to select in wich priority level the new task is created.

Hi Miquel! Thanks for your input on how to implement this on the Board View, I think this is a really interesting way of enhancing the process. Our Product Team is interested in hearing thoughts and feedback about the new Board View, so it's great that you posted this here. :)

Any status on this? Is it implemented?

And if so how to I tell Wrike to place new tasks at the bottom of my list?

@Nikolaj, thanks for commenting here! While this hasn't been implemented, it would be great if you could add your vote to this request so we could keep track of its popularity - this can be done by clicking the "+" under the original post. :)

This is a great great great idea. Being able to add tasks above or below a task, as well as at the bottom or top of the list would be very convenient.

I'd like to add in particular a smaller "add task" window, right now the "+" creates a huge overlay, much less convenient than the likes of Asana or ClickUp where it's a small, unobtrusive window that can quickly be filled in with full visibility to the rest of the screen.  Also, it would be great to get a small "pop up box" that verifies the creation of the task, again like Asana, ClickUp, Jira, so you can know you created the task.  This is in addition to the ability to quickly create tasks inline, which already exists obviously and is key.

Thanks!
