[Status: Not Planned] Custom date in request forms

My team (Communications/Creative) has a number of different request forms available for the rest of our staff. Some items (print jobs) only require 2 days' notice while others (video requests, graphic design) require three weeks or longer. Currently, Wrike allows users to put in any date they want, so we run into a problem of users requesting a date way earlier than what can feasibly be done. For example, a user requesting a graphic design will say they want something a week from today's date, but that's just not possible on our end. Each request form does state that x project requires a minimum of x days/weeks, but our users ignore it. It would be great if I could format custom date fields for each request, so that a user wanting a graphic design couldn't pick a date earlier than three weeks from today's date or a video four weeks from today's date, etc.

Hi Christina Stamm, and welcome to the Community 👋 

I was checking with the Product team to see if there's an update here. There isn't one for now, but this idea, though not planned currently, is on their radar. We'll continue to pass on the feedback from this thread to them and we'll let you know if there's news in the future.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else. If you'd like to know what this Community has to offer, please check out our New to Community forum.

My team also feels this is an important update that needs to be made, sooner than later. Considering Wrike is built for in-house marketing and creative departments and project requests come from within, having this function would make everyone’s life so much easier. How hard would it be to add a checkbox in the form builder which grays out a desired number of dates on the form due date calendar. Considering the original request in the string was made five years ago, we should expect this in 2023.

Hi everyone, thank you for supporting this suggestion with your votes, and comments. The team has confirmed that this request is currently not planned, so we've updated the status here to reflect this. They do plan to revisit the idea at the beginning of the next year.

I'd encourage anyone who is interested in this feature to continue to vote here, the more votes a suggestion has, the more we know how popular and sough-after a request is. You can see more about how we work with Product Feedback in this post. 

Thanks for your feedback and the insights shared here 👍

Came back for an update and I can't believe since 2017, this still hasn't been considered.  I am currently sending to my entire creative team to get them to upvote! Hopefully we can get this moving into production because it would be so beneficial to so many teams and companies.  I bet no one had the time to send it out to upvote because they are too overwhelmed with last minute turn around requests that people keep putting in, even though you ask for at least one week!

I can totally understand where you're coming from Christina Stamm! Please rest assured your feedback will be passed on to our Product team shortly. The team has been reviewing and continues to receive feedback here, but they can't prioritize it over other planned releases and enhancements. If we do have an update for this suggestion in the future, we will let you know about it here in this thread.
Our team can't commit to working on all or even most of the suggestions in this forum, but at the same time, feedback from this channel is still important to them. As an example, here's the list of Community-generated suggestions that the team has released last year.
I hope this info was helpful, but if you have any questions, please let me know.
