Hi Jory, although it's not possible to add a prefix to a Project, you can, from today, specify prefixes in Request forms that create Projects from templates.

By selecting a question to trigger the prefix (except Upload and section header), the answer to this question will be added as a prefix to all Subfolders/Subprojects, tasks, and subtasks of a Project. As outlined above, the Project title will not have any prefix.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of this.

Stephen, Thanks that works. Would be great to get a Suffix option too!

Hi Stephen, Is the prefix as the only option for automatic renaming of folders and projects when duplicating a template? This makes it difficult to navigate the left panel since the prefix pushes out the more descriptive names of sub project or sub folder elements. I realize that the user can drag out the width on that left panel, but it would be really nice to have that suffix option when renaming duplicate templates. I already upvoted Jory, but I wanted to share why I think this is important. Thanks!

@Jory - glad to hear the prefix work for you and we really appreciate the feedback on the suffix too.
 
@Anne - thanks for your input here too. I understand that adding a prefix makes the names a little larger. The suffix would be helpful to identify tasks without moving the panel so thanks for feeding that back to us.
 
If there's an update on this soon, I'll be sure to update you all here. Thanks again 👍

Hi, 

Here to support suffix option too! 

Will also like to suggest having prefix/suffix with running numbers. For example, auto naming task 1,2, 3, 4, etc

Please make the suffix option possible. I have a 147 line project template that is made up of a combination of folders, projects, and tasks that I manually add a suffix every time I duplicate it for a client.

Our team would really like to see a suffix option added as well for the same reasons mentioned.

Any progress with this? Also seeing if you can add auto naming/numbering tasks.

Lisa, is your team looking at how many similar requests are on the platform? I've found at least 7 other requests for this product within your help forum. I'm sure if your team did the due diligence to see how many requests are out there, it would be 60 at least!

Suffixes would be very useful for us. We would greatly prefer to suffix our project numbers on tasks as opposed to prefixing them.

Hi everyone, thanks for your support here!

Ashley Parks you're right, here's a thread that already has a Product status:

I'll be updating it again in the coming weeks after checking with the Product team 🙂

Hello, I love the Prefix option on the Request Forms, however, referring back to part of Jory's initial question: "Be able to add a prefix or suffix to an existing project . . ."  We ALWAYS rename a project after it is initially created. It is still extremely tedious to update the prefix for each task individually. Help!!!

Hello @everyone, thanks so much for your input and feedback here. I've checked with the team as the post reached the 60+ threshold, and for now, adding suffixes to Projects is not planned by the team.
 
The Product team will continue to actively monitor feedback posted here as well as the number of upvotes. If there are any changes to this, we'll be sure to let you know.
 
Thank you again for all your support and contributions 🙋🏻‍♀️

I see the last post is from a year ago. Is there by any chance a change around this topic because for us a prefix for just projects would also be helpful?

Hi Els Vermeulen, welcome to the Community 👋

There are no updates at the moment, and the status here remains "Not planned'". I will nevertheless pass on your interest in this functionality to the team.

Why isn't this planned? We collect information for various reasons at our company and want to view it by the requester's name, not by a series of numbers. Please change! There are so many people commenting on this post. Why does Wrike appear to disregard the overwhelming amount of repeated feedback the users suggest?

PS - also include the prefix in regular tasks, not just in subtasks.

Hi Naomi Bush, thank you for sharing your feedback here.

Please let me address your question on why this is not planned and share some detail on how this Product Feedback forum works. We have a voting system here where any Wrike user can upvote a suggestion when visiting the Community. There are other ways to let us know your feedback, and the Community is one of them. We have a process for reporting all suggestions, feedback, and votes from this forum to our Product team, and they continuously review all of this data. Once any suggestion reaches the 60 votes threshold, we add a Product status to it. You can check out more info on that and on the list of statuses in this post.

The team has been reviewing and continues to receive feedback here, but they can't prioritize it over other planned releases and enhancements. If we do have an update for this suggestion in the future, we will let you know about it here in this thread.
Our team can't commit to working on all or even most of the suggestions in this forum, but at the same time, feedback from this channel is still important to them. 

We really appreciate your feedback here and we will let you know if there are any changes here in the future.
