[Status: Not planned] Hide comments in project shared with collaborators

Hello,

One feature that is sadly missing for our team is the possibility to have internal communication Inside project shared with our client (collaborator license). Indeed, it's not possible to hide comments or have unshared tasks  in projects that are shared with clients.

If you have any suggestion to bypass this, it would be appreciated :)

Hi, I too want to be able to hide comments from collaborators without having to create subfolders or create another separate workflow.  Is there now an option to mark the message as private so only internal users can see and collaborators can't?

Having the ability to use internal comments is key for creating one threat with all communication centralized. Creating separate tickets is a work around, but not the way to go. Even having the ability for a secondary comment field which is aimed internally would be already good, as long as it shows up appropriately in the issue.

So for us it is crucial having such a function in place, where we do see this available in other tools.

Hey everyone, thank you for all of your input here. It's been passed on to the Product team.

I don't have an update for you at the moment, but as soon as I do, I'll let you know.

We really could do with seeing this added to the product soon - it's a big shortfall and is preventing us from using Wrike with our clients as collaborators - which we really want to do!

Wow, I had forgot all about this request. Disappointing to see it's still in the 'not planned' state especially considering how much time my project teams put into preparing status updates for customers. 

Literally hours of wasted effort every week across our entire project set because we want to keep internal communications separate.

Sorry for the late reply here, Michael Cassils! I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed. I've checked this with the team again, and they do have plans for customizing user permissions in Wrike that might help with the Collaborators' permissions and access. THere's no ETA for this currently, so I'll let you know once I have an update from the team.

Please add me to the up vote list.  An "internal note" (as it's called in Zendesk) is something that needs to be in Wrike ASAP at the task level (i.e. the internal note is tied to the specific task)!  Please... this thread has been open for 3.5 years!!

Dear all,

I just tried to solve this issue by creating private subtasks only for private comments (because duplicating a task to a different space is weird) as recommended by Stephanie Westbrook at the beginning of this thead. By the way her link to inherited sharing is invalid, so here's the right one: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500005219462-Selective-Sharing.

But I had to recognize that slective sharing is only available for enterprise users. That's quite bad, as you need that high costly licence for a workaround. :-(

So dear wrike team, would you mind implementing a very small option in your highly developed system to hide some bad comments from innocent collaborators? 😁

By the way: Thanks for your work, I'm still loving wrike! 😍

Florian

OP has 73 likes on the request.  This is a core function; if you are going to have an option for collaborators, you should know that they often come from external sources, ot within the company.  Notes and user info (name and email) should have permissions control for admin.

I have upvoted this too.  Wrike, it has been 4 YEARS now and all you have done is 'made the product team' aware of this.  Call me a skeptic but I don't think anyone actually cares about this feature at Wrike.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Max Matacchioni Wrike doesn't provide a public roadmap at the moment, but I'd suggest checking out our Betas & More forum to see the posts from our Product team on what they are researching currently.

Yea. It’s pretty ridiculous that you can’t comment private to a project manager about specifics on a task and you’re required to make another task, and copy/paste comments then later still try to manage that task as well, while you could easily send a private message to a specific person or group related to project .. either hiding from clients or other employees to keep performance and efficiency high. I’m thinking to switch to another solution, even tho it’s such a pain to
Migrate after 4 years
