Automatic assign yourself on private tasks.

When working with many private tasks in projects and folders, it takes a lot of time to assign every task to myself. What about making tasks created in private areas automatically assigned to me?

Alexander Numann The work related to the New Wrike Experience was based on user feedback, research, and investigation that showed that our UI and UX needed improvement. I'm really sorry to hear you don't find it useful. I hope that further updates to the New Experience will make it more useful for you!

Hi Lisa,

I'm very happy about the New Wrike Experience, it was a big step in usability for me.

But I agree with many others that some details are still nerve-racking in daily business, including this issue here, which has nothing to do with NWE.

I too was wondering if the Wrike development is too much focused on new projects instead of fixing some very essential issues, you know, like this one: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002774389--Status-Backburner-Editing-Notification-Types-in-the-Inbox

But I am confident that you're going to satisfy these requests in time.

Florian

Hi! Was there a development on this? I find this still very annoying, everything under personal should be assigned automatically to me, then if the project/task will move, I or someone else will change it consequently. Thanks!

Hi Virginia Cecchini Kuskow, welcome to the Community, and thanks for posting 😊

There are no updates planned in the short term, please allow me to share a little detail on how we process Product Feedback. We receive many great ideas on Community, and we pass on all feedback to our Product team. If you'd like to find out more, this article explains what happens after we receive Product feedback. 

We check with our team and assign a status after a thread receives more than 60 upvotes according to our Product Feedback Guidelines & Statuses. This suggestion at the moment needs more support. In the meantime, if there are any updates in relation to this suggestion, we'll be sure to update you here. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Virginia Cecchini Kuskow I wouldn't expect any movement on things like this. Wrike doesn't seem to care about requests from customers, no matter how logical, easy to implement, or how much the issue is affecting day-to-day work.

 

I have at least two active bug reports that I have been waiting for progress on for well over a year. These are EASILY REPRODUCIBLE, and affect my work daily (one is related to editing a task description with an embedded picture - super basic product functionality), but my "customer success manager" still has no ETA on when it may be fixed by the engineers.

 

Wrike only seems to care about fancy interface updates no one asked for, rather than focusing what their daily users are actually asking for. It's a shame.

Don't believe the 60 upvotes thing from Cansu either - ALL THAT DOES IS GET THEM TO CONSIDER WORKING ON IT (AND AFTER CONSIDERATION, THEY ALWAYS ELECT NOT TO).

Alexander Numann You're right that our team doesn't commit to working on all or even most of the suggestions here. There still are suggestions that our team has implemented or is planning to implement in the future. For example, here's the last year's list.

I completely understand your disappointment with the fact that not all ideas will be worked on due to various reasons, but I hope you know that your feedback is being heard and reported, even in cases there's nothing more we can currently do. And the votes do really matter and help, so please consider upvoting the suggestions that you find useful.

I'm not sure if anyone else in this thread has discovered a fix for this but there is a way if you have a sufficient Wrike plan for automation. Just create an automation rule to apply to Tasks and select the source as Personal, select New item created as the trigger and select the Action as Assign to and select yourself.

Sarah Irving great suggestion! Unfortunately I'm not an account admin and don't have access to that. I don't seem to even be the admin of my personal space (seems weird?).
