    Hi Lucy! Thank you for this feedback, I haven't heard this suggestion before and I think it's really interesting. I'd love to learn about the statuses your tasks typically go through, and the particular ones you're interested in tracking. It's always useful to learn more about your processes to understand where the need for certain functionality comes from. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hi Anastasia,

    Thanks for getting back to me! I'll use the example of our graphic designers and the way their tasks typically work. So their tasks typically exist as one, for example "Project 1", and this project has several stages of workflow such as; -

    'Added'
    'Briefing'
    'Moodboard'
    'Design'
    'Client Amends'
    'Complete'

    Using workflows for our task structure simplifies the management and individual viewing of tasks, so the designers can manage their workload in the 'board' view as opposed to dashboards or my work, which works much better for them visually.

    This falls down with timetracking. As a business we need to understand how much time was spent in 'Briefing', and how much time was spent in 'Client Amends', for example, but at the moment we can only understand time as a whole across the task, not within the workflow statuses.

    Does that make sense? Thank you for your help!

    Lucy, thank you for taking the time to write that up! That definitely makes sense and I can see how that could help with reporting and planning for future Projects. I really appreciate this insight!

    What Lucy describes applies to part of my team as well. Especially for the 'in progress' status. So imagine that as soon as someone starts working on an 'active' task, we switch the status to 'in progress'. Later on and when switching to another task, we switch it back to active or even to 'completed' if it is done.

    Now, it would be great if wrike could automatically track how long this task stayed as 'in progress' status. This would mean almost automatic time tracking for some of us, since most of our work tasks are in wrike already. Of course this goes side by side with an appropriate report.

    It would be great if you could consider this or a similar feature request.
