I'd like to be able to affect multiple people to the same task but with different individual allocation %.
For exemple on a give task "storyboard" i may affect 3 people. But only 2 of them will be 100% on it versus the creative director may only be 20%.
We also could really use this ability to assign allocation uniquely to each person on the task individually. I realize a work around is to use sub-tasks/individual tasks assigned on a 1:1 ratio. But our group does not have dedicated project managers so assigning granular tasks like this is not feasible. We need to track single tasks at a bit higher level with 2 or 3 people assigned to the task, and each person having their own effort allocation depending on their role. When everything needs to be added as a separate task just because the person has a separate role/allocation, it becomes unmanageable. So we are currently sacrificing a bit and not getting good estimates for some resources that are assigned to a multi-person task with very different allocations. I would like to see Wrike have the flexibility to assign allocation to each individual uniquely for cases where you don't need exact/granular task tracking for all the start/end and other task details; you just want to see the workload view snapshot for all your resources, with minimal project management investment. Wrike's flexible workload and timeline views are a huge selling point and they would be so much more useful if more people could be assigned to a single task and allocations simply tracked at the person level.
