    Hi Calum, welcome to the forums! I completely understand not wanting to have to work out of email and being able to work completely in one place. Tighe actually posted a request asking for that functionality as well. Could you +1 his post? That will help us keep everything consolidated.ย 

    I'm going to rename your post to "More Inbox Notification Options" just to make it easier for others to find and edit, that way we can send them here to +1 your request.ย

    I completely agree with the request.

    "For example, I'd like to get notifications in Wrike when data/assignee/status is changed on tasks, someone comments without @mentioning me (on a task I follow), task is deleted, etc.. All of these are available for email, but email notifications suck and there isn't an option to have them natively within Wrike."

    The ability to get notifications for changes to a task I follow via email is something that we really need. Is this somethingย that is currently being looked at?

    Agree, this would be a great feature to add in Wrike Inbox. Too many email notifications leads users to disabling them all, which defeats the purpose of notifications.

    This is the one BIG thing Wrike is missing.ย  We tell recommend our users to "live in Wrike" and if it's not in Wrike then it doesn't exist.ย  Problem is often times there's a Workflow status that signals to the current Assignee that the next step in a process can occur.ย  However, neither in a workflow customization, or via inbox notification does it allow us to provide a notification to the user WITHIN wrike, that the status change has occurred.ย 

    The perfect solution is for the workflow to include the option to "Notify current assignee(s)" for any workflow step.ย  There's an option to re-assign which is great as it pushes a notification to the new assignee; but if the duty falls on the current assignee then there's nothing.

    Upvoting because after some years of using Wrike, it still happens a lot that discussions on tasks go unnoticed.

    The reason is simple: If I comment without @mentioning the others, the comment is not shown to the others. And after years, the habit to @mention someone has still not formed across the entire team.

    Expectation when commenting on a task:

    • The author gets notified.
    • The assingees get notified.
    • Everyone who participated in the conversation gets notified.
    • @mentions are only required to notify someone who is neither assigned nor commented on the task before.

    Again from work experience: Everyone I've introduced into Wrike did expect that it just worked the way as explained above. It takes training and concentration that a discussion on a task does not get lost.

    This is really the one thing that bugs be about Wrike.

    Yes please... same deal. Why can't inbox get the same notification settings as email! Here is my rationale: Since wrike takes LOOONG to load from an email notification, if want to unfollow a task (to keep my notifications meaningful) I have to wait toooo long.

    If all of that was in my wrike inbox, unfollowing could be quick quick quick. Don't want that notification? Unfollow!

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease do this for us. This would allow me to get better adoption from my team, and therefore achieve better results in our endeavours.

    Thanks for listening. :)

    This is a huge miss and drives people back to their email rather than staying in the Wrike inbox.ย  Please update!
