[Status: Investigating ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ] Change Default Filter in Projects

Currently the default setting for a project filer is "All active" and you have to click the "x" to get to "STATUS: Any". It would be much better if you could set a default for how you want to view your work so that you don't have to change it every time. For example, our team seems to think the "STATUS: Any" would work better as a default.

Hi John,

I agree to you.

Additionally I hope that users can change the default filter by Folder or Project.

Agreed. It's really tedious to have to change it every time.

It would benefit me greatly to be able to have the default as "Status: Any".

HI all, this is a great idea, however, this isn't on the short-term roadmap right now. 

I've made sure this thread has been brought to the attention of the Product Team for review and when I have any new information, I'll post back here. Thanks for your votes and input ๐Ÿ™Œ

I am also hoping to have the ability to save and re-use custom filters ("assigned to X," "priority Y," "status Z"...), and have the ability to keep them active as you navigate from view to view or project to project or to quickly reactivate them with one click. 

Ideally, when you have a set of filters that's meaningful to you, you'd be able to name and reuse that as your own custom filter "my team priorities", easily accessible from anywhere in Wrike.  I recognize that you can set up Widgets for this, but that is challenging for our users that want to keep tabs on several different projects without having them jumbled together in one widget, and without having to have many many separate widgets for every project/folder to which they have access.

Having to reapply them from scratch several times per session gets rather tedious for some of our less patient/savvy users.

We would like to have this as well. We hear complaints about this all the time. We understand that the thought is you want to see what you need to do BUT we must also show what we have completed. I would rather have all my info show and then filter to see what I want sorted out.

This would be extremely helpful for our team, as well. Too many users don't notice that it's set to "Active" to begin with, so they think their completed and on hold tasks are disappearing!

I have also noticed that after some time, Wrike will forget that I have changed the filter to display all tasks and reverts to the default "Active"-only filter.  It is frustrating to constantly have to remove the "Active" tasks filter after previously doing so.

This should be a critical change for the development team.  I am trialing the program now and this could be a deal closer.

This has been a recurrent comment from my team indeed. It is tedious to reset the filters all the time, especially for users who don't work with Wrike on a regular basis as they tend to forget the filter icon.

When will this be addressed? This has been an ongoing issue for many and I am sure many more that have not found this thread. I get questions from panicked people daily. They think something is wrong with the tool or their work is gone. This is a huge waste of my time and theirs. Now with the new table view, this issue is even worse. This needs to be bumped up for sure.

@Melissa Bozarth, this is something our team is hoping for the ability to control also.  Curious: What makes it worse in the new table view? We were excited to switch over to new, but would love more info on potential drawbacks.

@Ella,

Although I can't understand  whether we should discuss about New Table View in this thread or not, I'm submitting below to Wrike now.

(But it is not relating to Filter.)

1) Duration (SPAN) is not being calculated based on Custom Calendar. ( Excluding only weekend from working days.)

     Other "Duration"s are being calculated based on Custom Calendar.

2) We can create New tasks to top level ( Root ) only. 

    After creating the new task, we can move it similarly with Gantt Chart, but the feature does not work same with Gantt Chart.
   Because New Table View is still keeping the original sorting rule of Wrike. (Priority, Task name, etc.)
   Additionally, if we move the task to Top or Bottom of the task group, ( means one group of Parent task and Subtasks), the task is moved       to outside of the task group.

   Anyway, this feature has not been completed development yet, I feel.

So, I'm instructing my users not to change the check of "New Table View" to Enable at Labs yet.

But I think someone has to check the features of New Table View for supporting production team of Wrike for completing the development.

I'm checking and feedbacking. I hope Production Team will fix our issues ASAP.

@Ella Greene I also like the new Table View overall. The new Table View is not as clear when you have a filter on. It does show in a blue that there is a filter on but to many it is not as obvious as when you look up and see All Active and have an X to click. You have to go into a side panel to remove the filter as well. Just small things that make it a little more difficult for users.

If they could just remove the filters from the beginning and allow the user to select their own filters, I think that would be the best experience for all users. It would also make it much easier when we are training new users. I am the Business Process Improvement Manager at the bank I work for and am always looking for ways to make things faster and easier.

Hi guys, it's great to see your interest in this feature. It's not currently on the roadmap, so please ensure you're clicking the upvote (+) button on the original post to cast your vote. 

If there are any updates on this functionality from the Product team and I'll be back ๐Ÿ‘

I am just implementing Wrike and may have found a work around to the default filter where the item disappears once it is completed.  I created a new workflow where I made one of the options in the active section "Complete". I then changed the "complete" in the complete area to "not applicable".  Now the only time a task disappears is if the "not applicable is selected.  Since I am just new to using this I am not sure if this would impact anything else so would be interested in hearing from others.

Hi, Has the removing of the "Active" default filter been added to the development roadmap yet?

It's critical and very tedious for us users to have to change that EVERY time.

Please advise when that will be done.

Yes please. When looking at an overall project we need to see all stages and to have to x out "Active" every time is tedious.

My team very recently implemented Wrike and this is probably the complaint I have heard most often. People think the task is lost once completed because it doesn't display by default.

Definitely hope this makes it onto the development list - seems like a pretty basic no-brainer.

Personally, I don't want my "on hold" items to disappear as if they're complete!
