Customize Your Daily To-Do

It would be ideal if your daily to-do could either show all tasks assigned by you OR have the option to get a daily to-do email that just has your tasks assigned TO you. My daily to-do used to be helpful but after our office manager left, I had to change some of the to-dos. Now I have 80 to-dos instead of 15-20 and it's no longer helpful for me.

Hi Christine, thank you for posting here! I just wanted to quickly clarify something. Currently, the Daily To-do has two categories:

  • Tasks for Today - active tasks assigned to you, where today's date is the start date, due date, or falls into one of the days of the task's duration.
  • Overdue Tasks Created by You - active tasks which you created and where the due date has already passed.

Would you like for there to be an option to remove one of these sections, and keep the other? Let me know if there's something I missed! Alternatively, I wanted to suggest giving Custom Dashboard Widgets a go - they're fully customizable and you can choose to view only the tasks you're interested in seeing at the start of the day by adjusting and saving a certain set of filters. Happy to answer any other questions about this!

In regards to the Daily To Do email that Wrike sends out, would it be possible for you to add the folder/project and parent task if it's subtask? Currently, the email only includes the task name. Often, I don't include the context of the task in the task name because I get this from the parent folder/project and/or parent task when using Wrike. If it's a subtask, I would like to see both the parent task and folder/project list Wrike does.

Currently, I can't tell what the task in the email is related to.

Thanks,
Keith

I completely agree that the daily to-do is not very useful in it's current configuration. I would like to be able to customize it further.  Even be able to create several types of notifications if I had the need.

I see this is an older thread, however I've had requests by Collaborators to organize the Daily To-Do email by Project. They are on multiple projects with similar tasks and similar subfolders (which is all that is visible in the Daily To-Do) -- so they are confused as to which task belongs to which project.

I agree with all of these. I need to see the parent folder name in my daily email so I know without having to click on it which task it's referring to. Customizable notifications would be wonderful! I don't want to have to keep Wrike open just to see my task list, plus I can set follow up (pop-up) reminders on the email notification but don't think I can do that in Wrike other than changing the due date.

I agree. It would helpful to see a related task to which a sub-task is attached in the daily to do email. Many sub-tasks have similar or generic names that are best understood by knowing the task to which they relate.

I have the same request from my team (generic naming) based on the feedback here I wanted to ask if this has this been added to the roadmap?

The parent task would be extremely helpful since we don't always include a ton of detail in the subtasks.

For example:

 

Parent task: CTAA Tradeshow

Subtask: Prepare list

 

The subtask needs the context of the parent task to make sense.

Agree on this as well. There should also be an option to include a list of Projects as well if you want to make this truly functional, otherwise pretty useless feature for teams that traffic workflow based on Projects & not really on assigned tasks. Our team would then just use Dashboards as we currently do. Same can be said for the "Created by me" section as well. Currently Wrike seems centered around management of TASKS rather than at the PROJECTS level, expanding that functionality across the platform to allow for workflow to be trafficked more efficiently at the PROJECTS level would make it so much more functional & user friendly for many teams like ours!
