Conditional Formatting of Tasks

It would be nice if there was an ability to have tasks show up in certain colors if they met certain conditions, especially in the Table view.  The conditions and color choices would be configurable.

For example, milestones could be in a blue italic font when viewing in the Table view.

When a task is marked complete, its row in the Table view is shaded green.

Parent tasks could be bolded.

Conditional formatting could visually call out certain project aspects that the team needs to focus on as shown below in a mock up I put together.

I have been missing something like that too

It would have been also great if Kanban board task sheets would be colored conditionally. That would be visually more attractive for team members to follow-up their tasks.

Upvoting this feature - would be very beneficial to see from a glance what tasks are overdue, pending, not yet started, etc. without having to create a filtered report or dashboard.

As an account owner still in our Implementation, I am in agreement with this suggestion.  I have had my PM's request this capability multiple times over the last few months.  Is it on the roadmap?

Following. I anticipate this will also be a hot request from my team as I begin rolling Wrike out for our project managers.

We could really use this feature as well.  MS Project has a similar feature and those that use Excel for project management.  Would love to see this in Wrike!

I agree - adding conditional, table, and text formatting and color/shading options would be highly beneficial for projects with a lot of parent tasks, subtasks, status changes, etc.!

YES! The value of this feature would be significant! If this feature would be implemented, the ability to hop into a project or folder and quickly within seconds absorb status detail without having to scan/read each line would be awesome and have great ROI.

I manage creatives on our in-house Marketing team and the ability to have a more visual way to interpret the big picture through color would be a huge upgrade.

We want to make the switch from Smartsheet, which has tons of conditional formatting options. The lack of this in Wrike is going to make it a tough sell to the team and our customers who we share our project plans with.

Ariel Browne — just a curious user...can I ask why you are looking to switch over to Wrike from Smartsheets? My team is looking into consolidating Project Management platforms after a recent merger. I'd love to know your high-level reasons for migrating if willing to share. Thank you!

Kelsey Ireland, a new manager likes Wrike better and used it at a previous company. I believe it is the capability to consolidate reporting, track time spent, and enable approval workflows. I myself am finding it hard to navigate and trying to figure out how to do simple actions (like re-order tasks in my project? It seems I can't drag and drop tasks in table view). I'm hoping my inability to pick it up intuitively can be solved by training, but when I realize what I am trying to do is actually due to a feature gap (like this conditional formatting), that always concerns me.

Hi Ariel Browne, welcome to the Community and thank you for posting!

We do understand onboarding can have its own challenges and we have various trainings and webinars on how to get started in Wrike. This Community post suggests a journey to follow including links to our educational videos for different levels of Wrike Users (beginners, individuals, leaders, champions) and webinars for beginners and admins for Wrike. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions 🙋🏻‍♀️
