Issues Log on Dashboard

Is there a way to display an "Issues Log" on the dashboard?  This, combined with widgets for status of all projects in a folder, overdue tasks and tasks starting this week - would provide me with all I need to run the program.  However, I do not see a way to easily track issues for a project or program.

I have seen a few of these comments on different community boards, but no responses really.  Risks and issues are IMPORTANT to manage actively.  How does Wrike provide this functionality?  Where are the templates? Whats the best way to use the tool to do this?

@Allie @Liam Could you give me a little more details about what you would want to see in an issues log? Are these specific tasks that always meet certain criteria or are they completely random and disparate tasks (or maybe they're not even tasks 😯)? If you could share who needs to see the information and what needs to be done with items in an issue log that would be extremely helpful as well.

Funny you sent this.  I just created something and will experiment with it.  I have added a set of fields... 

  • RI Type (Risk or Issue)
  • RI Date opened
  • RI Status (open or closed)
  • RI Impact (LMH)
  • RI Description
  • RI Contingency Plan
  • RI Owner
  • RI Final resolution (if closed)
  • RI Date closed

You can enter this data on a request form and it will populate this "risk register" in the fields identified.

It is a little clunky, and still preferable to use my excel workbook.  Things that would be helpful:

  • Ability to remove some of the default fields like "Description", "Assigned to", "Start Date", "End Date" - as those are irrelevant for this.
  • Ability to move through the risk and issue register during a meeting and make updates easily in the TABLE view... AND the ability to tweak that view and have your tweaks carry over to the next time you open it.  (For example, if I resize a column it doesn't keep that setting, so I have to resize it every single time i go in, which is annoying.)

To help people get this done, it would be nice to have had some instructions that remind you to.... create fields that make sense (i.e. how I put "RI" in front of them), suggestions for what fields to include based on how you want to use and report on the information.

@Allie Well that was great timing, love those fields! We're working on enhancing the Table View and I think some of what the team has planned will help for your use case (just can't share details yet).
