    Hi Andrew! I know you were referring to saving filters for Folders here, but in case this helps, I wanted to mention that in Wrike Labs you can test out the Default View Picker, which allows you to set views such as Timeline, Table, List, as the default on a per Folder basis. Happy to hear your thoughts about this!

    I agree that this would be a useful feature.  In my case, I don't mind that List view is the default when selecting a project, but I would like the be able to set "STATUS: Any" as the default (I currently have to always change from STATUS: Active).  I'd also like all subtasks expanded by default.

    Hi 

    It is a nice feature, but at this moment after setting a default view, you can switch between default views, but you are not able to cancel default selection (switch back to a state where there is no default view

    On different issue, it would be great if time log filter would have options (like added lately to time log report) such as: Today, Yesterday, this week, ........

    Hi Tamir! You're right, I just checked in with our Product Team, and there's no way to completely reset a chosen Default View. That said, they're going to look into ways to change that, so thank you for sharing your feedback here!

    It would be good if the "default view" were set up to allow for selecting the default at the group folder level vs having to set it up for each project within a folder structure.

    Thanks for your input Mark. Just to be sure I completely understand, do you mean you want to be able to select, at a Folder level, which default view is set for all that Folder's Subfolders/Subprojects? Thanks

    Yes Stephen, that would be beneficial in my role as I have access to multiple groups folders. It would be great to be able to set a default view from the higher level vs each folder at a time.

    Setting the default view in larger groups would be helpful. But the larger, more time consuming issue - as @Howard Kim noted - is that the filters and sorting don't stick. I want to see All Status every time I go to timeline view - always! otherwise dependencies are unclear. I don't want to have to resort my rows and rearrange the order of columns every time I go into Table view. Wrike, please make the views sticky by user!!

    We definitely need this!  I want default views for Timeline and List Views to be for every task within a project, not just active tasks.

    Please make the default view "Status: Any" instead of "Status: All Active".

    The "Status: All Active" default view is extremely inconvenient for me and every member of my Creative Team who need to be able to jump between task and project views and see all dependencies. Please either make the global default change Krista suggested, or, better yet, make it a customized configuration setting so that any team or individual user can choose the default view that makes project management most efficient for them.

    Hi guys, thanks for this input. I can definitely see how having statuses customised can be useful. Thanks for sharing here so others can discuss and add valuable input for our Product Team's discussions.
     
    I wonder if using Dashboards might be a solution you could use for now. You can set up custom widgets, that shows selected tasks in any statuses you choose. You can also set the assignee filter to 'Current user' so that when you share with your team, the Dashboard will show tasks that they're  individually assigned to. You can also select 'All assignees' so everyone can see all tasks assigned to tasks.
     
    I understand this is not exactly what you've requested but I would love to hear your thoughts on this option 😊

    Fully agree with Andrew. I think it is good the idea of the "active" tasks filter but it should be possible to change it and fix it for a certain folder. Something similar to what it is possible to do with the Default Workflow

    Hey everyone! I'm happy to share that saving filters is now available in one of our beta features - new Timeline. Feel free to enable it in Wrike Labs and give it a go. :) Is this something you'd like to see for other views? Please share in comments!

    • My Work Update
    • Wrike Party Themes
    • New compact task list (😍)

    @Vicious_  I see the timeline as the very first option in the Lab.  We also received an email "This Month at Wrike" that has a link to it from Evan from Wrike today.

    @Stephen Orowe - Dashboards aren't practical for us based the multitude of projects we have. 

    @Serge - Glad to hear that timeline view will have the ability to save filters - that is certainly the most critical view for it.  Yes, please do add the option to save filters to other views.

    We would like to see this functionality for the other views as well, please. It comes up ALL the time for us, and seems at first blush like a simple fix. Thanks

    I agree with Justin. It would be great to be able to have this feature in all other views. Not having this is frequently a source of frustration for members of our team.

    @Vicious_ thanks for opening a ticket about this! I wanted to mention that in case anyone else runs into this, in some cases hard refreshing the page could help (Ctrl+F5 on Windows, and Cmd+SHift+R on a Mac). Let me know if that doesn't help!

    Thanks everyone!

    @Jean-Philippe, in your case, you can achieve this with the help of Timelog Reports. Just select "Last month" option in the filters section of the Report Builder and you'll see the relevant tasks each time you open your Report.

    There will be no need to filter out the time frame each time you want to see timelog entries for the last month. Please give it a try and let me know if that works for you! :)

    One very important from side.

    Is it possible to add this Time Frame feature to this report and custom fields feature?

    We also use time logs to generate invoices and we need exact dates and custom fields data in this case. For the being we have to generate reports using 2 different reports from Wrike (time logs of each task export and other report which has custom fields data). It is very time consuming and with risk of mistakes creating this kind of combined one report. 

    I think that it should not be a big effort to add these 2 features ( time frame and custom fields) into Timelog report because they already exist in Wrike.

    Please let me know if you will be able to implement this in near future.

    Best regards

    Kris

    Hi Serge, I had already checked this and just gave it a try

    Problems are : 
    - The format is not the same.
     - It's not available for PDF export on the client side. 
     - Excel is not client friendly for everyone
    - if you force the print, it is not looking as good as the print fonction for the timelog
    - if you want to send it automaticaly, it is not possible on a monthly basic. 
    - It does not give you a total, only a sum per folder.
    That mean, you have to be very very carefull at not having a task with his folder and a subfolder at the same time, because they will be accounted twice and the client will not like that.
    - The report page doesn't group reports, so ... it is the root of a mess.
    - Because it is so different, I cannot change client habits to receive their log in PDF.
    - For our own log, we have to do it manually anyway.
     
    The timelog has to be improved. For the last month it only got worst because of the default folder view that has interupted my workflow...
