    Reading through the thread this feels like we're beating a dead horse, but another example of where this would be SUPER useful is in managing requirements traceability matrices and change logs. If i want to track an original requirement (or a new requirement) to the change log, I have no way of including a link or more information for tasked references. 

    Upvote x 10, please

    Agree, upvote x 1000 please, wee need this for meetings 😤

    @Wrike is almost there, so why not compleate the work?

     

    If not by using @then use the + add to folder/projects

     

     

    ...it is possible to add to project or folder, but when trying to link to a specific task or sub task or sub sub task then it don't ☹️

    Hey there, everyone! Thanks a lot for your feedback here, and it's good to see it's getting more popular too! More upvotes would definitely help our team see just how many of you would like this to be implemented. Please don't forget to +1 the original suggestion! I'll be back here in Q1 2020 and hopefully be able to share some good news 🙂

    Hi Lisa, despite my cynicism I haven't fully given up on coming back to Wrike, in particular as my license is paid up for many months still.  

    I would put this issue as one of the examples I have been presenting as how you guys handle your roadmap:

     

    - 60 vote number is arbitrary, seems like a way to justify to the community not moving on requests.  This is a big one, very old, has 40 votes, and is a fundamental feature of a quality Project Management App.  You guys are 1/2 to having the feature since you can already nicely unfurl tasks in description and comment canvas, and you can search for other other tasks with auto-complete in the subtask view.  So all you need to do is allow the ability, like Asana has, to search for the tasks with say an @mention, and then display its link as you do with unfurling.

    With that complete, if you could just add to the "@mentioned" task the reference in the other task, you have completed this feature and made a ton of users happy!

     

    - 2nd point:  You said in your last post you'd be back in Q1 2020.  Did you really intend to?  There are 6 days left!  And I can just see what you are going to say..."sorry guys, talked to the Product team, we have no update...oh and if you want to find out more about how we handle requests, here's a link to our policy..." 

     

    I do not intend to be obnoxious, but you guys bring this on yourselves and could easily prove me wrong by changing your approach to one that's more transparent (like connecting your weekly Release Notes - which are nice I have to say - to the actual community requests), and stop repeating the same comment in different words, which basically insults users' intelligence at this point.  I'd rather hear that "no this is not going to happen for the next 2 yrs because we are preoccupied with a new UI, speed improvements, Wrike for Marketers, catering to the Professional Services niche " or whatever it is.  

    I do sincerely hope to see movement on the 10 or so threads I'm following to this day with equally unhappy users, it would do a lot to change my thinking about you guys.

    Hey everyone, thanks for your feedback here!

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you here. I've checked with the team, and for now, they aren't planning to work on this in the nearest future. I'll continue to pass on your feedback and use-cases, and once I have an update from the Product team, I'll make sure to let you know!

    Coming from Jira this is a HUGE deficiency in the software. Even better than @ a task would be to have a link type and the ability to link them. Dependencies are great, but rarely covers everything.

    In our team we would like to use such links in custom fields as well. My example is duplicate tasks.

    User1 opens some task, lets call it Task A

    User2 opens a new but basically the same task, lets call it Task B

    I would like to close Task B with an appropriate 'Canceled' type of status/resolution, and link Task B to Task A in the custom field.

    That way anyone that opens Task B for any reason can easy see that it's a dupe and Task A is where they should capture any new information.
