[Status: Not planned] Poll inside an task, new function in Wrike?

Lets say, you get a Task into a project/folder or what else...

This task is a software function that is not in our software. Or can be a bug that is not important, but really interresting.

Could be nice to have an option to make an poll inside the task, and tag some team mebers for it. Where they get an notice/alert and can make theyr answer based on the set questions on the poll. 
Then laster based on the feedback on the team members, it will be set into production or not.

Tagging, using the @mention and asking the question manualy to all team members could take time, and not as nice/good looking that a small simple poll can be.
Hope this could be added to the system.

Hi Kim, that's an interesting idea, thanks for sharing! Something I can recommend in the meantime is using Custom Fields. Each created field can be a poll parameter, for example, "Important", "Moderate", "Not Important", and then the values in the field can be numbers. Each time someone goes in and wants to choose a certain option, they add a +1 to the counter. Then, you'll be able to easily see this data in Table View, Reports, as well as filter for certain values. Does this make sense? Happy to discuss this in more detail!

A workaround that seem to be taking unnecessarily long time then just had some simple pol thing inside an task. @mention is also making it more messy inside an task that might already have several comments.

Hi Jason, currently there are no plans to add this to the Product Team's roadmap. Perhaps linking to a third party poll (link this one from Survey Monkey) might be useful for now. If there's any change to this request we'll be sure to update everyone here 👍

You can create a custom field (polling) with the voting value (high, med low) or (1,2, 3, 4, 5) to capture an entry from a system user. Now that the custom field history feature has been applied, you will be able to see each person's response. I think this solves it relatively well without the need for development for such a simple function. If you had a lot of people voting it may be less manageable, but a quick glance at 20 or less is not a lot of effort in my opinion.

There is probably a smarter way to add the different values entered (aggregation to average?), I tried the instructions at https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/209603049-Custom-Fields under "Aggregate and Sort Data" but I couldn't get it to work. I don't get a "carrot" icon. But I tried bother "dropdown" and "Number" custom field types with aggregation set to "sum" and then "average" but nothing visibly changed onscreen. Maybe the instructions are missing "where the result displays"? I can't see it. Someone else might have mastered that. If there is a way to do that, in my opinion that would be full functionality for basic polling solved.

I have surveymonkey and a devoted live-polling software system, but for such simple polling (vote on whether this should go live), I wouldn't bother using those applications, to me it would be overkill and I'd rather have the data held within the task. This would also be dependant on whether it is just Wrike system users polling, or you had a greater audience outside of the system.

Any updates on the addition of voting functionality within a task? This would be extremely helpful and add efficiency.

 

Thank you for your consideration of the add/update.

Hi everyone! While I don't have an update for voting functionalities within a task at the moment, I'd recommend using Approvals in the meantime. Seeing how many approve or unapprove a task can act as a form of voting and help you make decisions in relation to your work.

Once I have an update for you in regards to voting, I'll let you know!

+1 on this. Would be an amazing feature to have.

@... the workaround is great but for larger teams it is useful to be able to vote properly imho. Thanks for considering it

Hello everyone! Thank you for your support for this suggestion!

I've checked with the team as this post reached the 60 upvotes threshold, and for now, they are not planning to work on such a function. At the same time, we will continue to pass on your feedback to the team and check on updates regularly.

For now, I'd like to suggest a workaround that might work in some cases: you can use emojis for voting under comments in your tasks, projects, and folders. For example, you can use these: ➕ and ➖. Hope this can help!
