WBS codes

It would be nice if we could create WBS codes for a Project. 

 

For example, for each Project we could create a Code Prefix for its tasks using numbers, letters or symbols.

Using basic numbers, the subtasks would be numbered as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3... And if you move or delete a task, they would be automatically updated.

Hi Marcelo, welcome to the Community :) Automatic assignment of numeric prefixes sounds very useful, thank you for sharing this idea here! I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I wanted to mention that when you duplicate a Project or Folder, there's an option to set a prefix for its tasks and Subfolders/Subprojects. This prefix is carried over to all items inside the new Project/Folder, to avoid any confusion when duplicating tasks with the same names several times:

I've been looking for the WBS structure at Wrike but it seems that it is not possible to assign WBS codes/numbers on project tasks, the same way we've seen on MS Project. It would be really nice if we could create WBS codes for a Project.

I am in a trial now.  I am comparing to ProjectManager.  I like Wrike better generally, HOWEVER, ProjectManager has a really nice WBS feature... its a task list COLUMN which automatically re-numbers a multi level number in the column.

 

If you move a task, it renumbers all appropriately.  

 

This would avoid the very tedious renumbering within the Title column, and the need for leading zeros etc... ("00123")  

 

Please add WBS!

Hey wrike forum post followers, there is a bit of WBS related momentum in a different post (which you might already be following).  If we can get a few more votes there, it might encourage wrike to consider some development.

I assume (hope) that there will be an opportunity to help wrike product developers figure out the scope to best deliver the specific feature you are interested in.
