Hi everyone! I am Product Manager in Wrike and it would be great to discuss the following topic with you.
We recently released a new feature which automatically adds task assignees depending on changes to a task’s status. This is the first step on Wrike’s automation voyage, and we are very interested in hearing your thoughts!
Quick recap of what things were like before:
For many teams, changing a task’s status is associated with more actions than just moving jobs down the workflow. Depending on your story, a multitude of additional actions can be triggered by status change. For example, a task status might indicate that an assignee needs to be added or changed. Before, changing all task attributes was a manual process.
You can specify assignees for task statuses. When a task is created (manually, not via duplication or a Request) with an auto-assigned status, or when the status is changed to one with an auto-assignee, the specified assignees are automatically added.
- This feature is perfect for situations where a task always needs to go to particular people if it's in a certain status.
- Statuses like "In Review" or "Escalation" are particularly great fits, because tasks are usually reviewed or revised by certain people.
- Quick Tip: Don't forget to remove yourself as an assignee if your part is done.
