Auto Completion of Project when all tasks are completed

Currently you have to manually check to ensure all tasks in a project are completed and then change the status of the project manually to "Completed". 

This means that when you go to run reports to see all completed projects, nothing shows up. 

 

It would be great if projects AUTOMATICALLY change to Completed status when all tasks within the project are marked complete. This makes it so you don't need the additional step (which isn't assigned to anyone) to check it off complete.

Agreed. Or at least a notification "hey all the tasks are complete, do you want to mark the project complete?"

Totally agree!  Is there any way we could get this in front of more people to chime in on?

Absolutely agree! Companies with hight worload would appreciate this feature. This is something that I really miss.


It would be also great, to allow the personalization of the "project status"...

 

Thanks

Would it also be possible to have these projects that auto complete after all tasks are completed move to a "completed" folder?

This absolutely needs to happen.  Our company manages a ton of projects and having to manually go back and check the box when it could be done automatically is arduous and unnecessary.  I'd love to hear that this is making headway into the development cycle.

big +1 - you already have this for tasks/subtasks.  other tools like Clubhouse have it, you can do it with Jira automation.  You guys have a great set up with folders and projects, real differentiator with your hierarchy vs. about all other tools out there, and this would give the projects that extra dynamic vs. folders to really track work and represent goals & completed initiatives.  

A related functionality to close all tasks if you try to close a project would also be great.

Hope you guys get this done soon, a real big piece for my team!

Hey everyone, apologies for the delay in response here.

While the Product team is interested in this suggestion, there are no plans to add this to the short-term roadmap. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know.

You are theoretically supposed to be able to do this utilizing Wrike Integrate, however, our rep was never able to show us how to accomplish this.

In addition I think if a project is marked complete all tasks should be as well.
