    Hi Andrew, I think the Reports feature might help you do some of the things you mention.

    To get started:

    1. Select the Reports tab from the left-hand Navigation panel.
    2. You can use one of the five Report templates (if they fit your needs) or click "New Report from Scratch" to build a Report based on custom criteria. 

    If you build a Report from scratch:

    1. After clicking "New Report from Scratch", select "Tasks".
    2. Choose the Folders/Projects you would like to include data from. 
    3. Add Filters - this is where you can narrow down the tasks that you want to have displayed on your Report. It sounds like the "last modified date", "completed date", and "start date" might be helpful for your team.
    4. Choose "Table" for the report type.
    5. Click "Save & View". 

    Once you create your Report, you can share it with other Wrike team members, or you can create a Report Snapshot which you can share with Wrike users or non-Wrike users. Happy to talk through this a little more, let me know if you have any questions. In case it helps, there is also a Help Center page on Reports.

    I agree that this would be a useful and easy to to implement feature, as the data is there as @stephanie posted for filtering, but the collumn is not selectable in report view or export. I would like to be able to see the last modified date in the report view.

    I would also like to include the Value of the "Last Date Modified" into my Task Reports.

    We would greatly benefit if the last modified date was a column that could be added in the report view as well as the value of the last modified date.  

     

    For us, it would give users a snapshot on the tasks that haven't been modified/worked on for a while.

    Is this something in the works?  I need to be able to show when a task, specifically a milestone task, has been rescheduled.

    Wrike, please provide an update.  If it is a field, we should be able to report off of said field.  This field is vital to reporting I need to produce.

    @Sara Hey, thanks for reaching out here ๐Ÿ™‚ We add one of the statuses to the suggestions that hit 60 votes, so it will help if this post got more +1's - this is how our Product team estimate popularity of the feature. For now I have no update on this, but I think I can suggest a workaround: you can add a Custom Field "Last modified date" and enter the date there - it will show up in the report. I know it's not an ideal solution, but I hope it can help you ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Hi Lisa,

    Do you mean for me to manually review each task then mark the date it was modified in a custom field?  That is a process that would take a significant amount of time considering the number of tasks and sub-tasks we use.

    It is also not ideal for me to continue to post comments to reach the "popularity" vote you require to make this change.  If it is a provided field in the report filters, there is no reason it should not be reportable.  

    Sincerely,

    Sara

    Big upvote here. Being able to filter on the modify date is a good start (would be even better if date filtering let us select arbitrary relative date ranges, as some have suggested in https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000537149-Add-future-time-frames-in-Dashboard-filters), but being able to actually show the data on the report/export is important for people to understand what the report is saying, and how stale the task/project has become.

    I agree, this would be a great feature to add to Wrike report. If it was possible to automatically report on a date that the status was marked "Completed" etc., would be nice. We have many people on our team asking for this.

    At task level reporting, there are fields for created and completed dates.  This allows us to find out how long it took the task to get completed.  However at the project level, there is no completed date field.  It would be very useful to have that field added as it would allow us to see how long it took to complete the project.  The start date and finish date fields aren't of interest as it requires some manual interaction.  Would rather have the fields be auto populated when the task/project gets completed.

     

    Thanks again

    Todd

    Really need this one sooner rather than later, also commenting on the ability to use a filter "not modified in X days"

    Id really like an idea of when, First I am still rather shocked and irritated that only after I signed up I find such a basic value as "Last Modified" is not available as a column for viewing or exporting in reports.  Then to see it addressed with a coming in 2020. I am currently evaluating several other products who out of the box have this critiera, how did Wrike make such a miss? this is really the most basic of information.  Can you give us a better idea of time frame? if its fairly soon, otherwise I am not sure I can keep using this tool when it is impacting my ability to communicate with the business or their ability to efficiently monitor activity.  Thanks.

    @Lisa, thanks.  I would really like to see two data points on both tasks and Projects:

    - last modified

    - and completed.

    (In fact, "started" would be useful as well - I mean the date the actual status moves to "in progress" from "backlog," which very often can be different from the planned start date).

    Could you clarify if you guys are going to add both of these, to both tasks and Projects?  That would be a terrific addition, as I agree with most posters that this is sorely needed.  In particular, with all the great Gantt functionality in Wrike, I think it's a big missing piece that you can't see easily when a Project or Task is actually completed.

    Thanks again.

    I would love to see this feature!! What i think would also be useful within this feature is, when marking a task as complete, being able to "backlog" the completion date.

    Here is my specific use case - what if I have a task that is "Send email out" due 4/15, in which the email is automatically sent out through an online system, but I am out of office until 4/20, so I can't mark it complete until I get back to the office. My completion date will be 5 days late, but the email was actually sent out on the 15th. The work around of adding a custom field of actual completion will work, but a more concrete feature would be very useful in reporting and in day to day use!
