Hi Jessica, glad you saw the new release! Let me know if I'm getting this right: you would like the person who created the task to be auto-assigned if a certain status is selected?

Hello, I was just going through my Wrike Deployment and during our process mapping phase we identified that this functionality would be highly valuable for a process in our company.  Please add my vote for this functionality.

We would love for our submission form to automatically assign the author in addition to our defaults.

Yes, it would be very helpful if the person that is filling out the project request form can be auto assigned as an owner.

Until Wrike provides a built-in way to accommodate this request (on task change to a specific status, assign the task to the task author), it's possible to accomplish via Wrike Integrate.

I've shared a sample recipe at https://www.workato.com/recipes/1066391

I have some blueprint templates with multiple tasks that are pulled by request forms. Some of the tasks should be assigned to the "requestor" but there is no workaround for this problem.

Can you tell me if an upvote is an ❤️ on the first comment of the thread? This is not intuitive for me.

Thank you for your feedback, Rui Oliveira!

I'm sorry for the confusion - you're right, an upvote is basically liking the orin=ginal suggestion at the top of the page:

Hi Selena Jeter, welcome to the Community! 👋

Although there's no update from the Product team in relation to this suggestion, it should be possible to partially achieve this using Wrike's Automation.

You can create a rule where if a new task, for example, is created in a particular folder or project (for example, your personal folder in Wrike), it will be automatically assigned to you:

Please let me know what you think!
