[Released] Recurrent Tasks Beta Program

Recurring tasks have been the topic of one of our hottest Community discussions, and in June we launched a beta program packed with changes based on your suggestions.  

 

Quick recap of what things were like before:

  • All tasks in a recurrence were created at the same time and were immediately shown in the Workspace, which resulted in a whole bunch of identical tasks. 
  • The maximum number of recurrences in a single chain was 60.

 Now:

  • Tasks are created (and appear in the Workspace) right before their start date. Each task in a recurrence is created one working day before its start date, at around 5 o'clock in the morning (your timezone). Example: If I have a weekly recurrence on Monday, a new task is created every Friday.
  • The maximum amount of recurrences was raised to 999.

What else?

  • Future tasks (that haven't been created yet) don't show up on the Timeline or Workload View.
  • When a recurrence comes to an end, the author and assignee get @mentioned on the last task with a message letting them know that the recurrence had ended.
  • Recurring task titles are based on the original task’s title, and the start date of the recurrence is added after the original title.
  • If you’re not using a recurrence, Wrike automatically pauses it. If 15 tasks weren’t modified, Wrike Bot lets you know that the recurrence is now paused. Need to unpause it? Just modify a task.

If I can still test, I'd love to! Do sub-tasks carry over too? I was never able to figure that out before.

I'm in - this is crucial for me if since I use it a lot on the platform, I'm considering moving away from.

Anastasia,

Having the tasks popping up one day before they are due is not working very smoothly for us.

We should be able to choose how many days in advance we want each recurring task to pop up into our workspace, as many tasks require significant work to get completed. (i.e Payroll final report issuing - 5 days before due date).

Having the tasks up one day before they are due makes it very frustrating to plan for them!
