Project/Task Approval Notifications

We've been having a problem with our team not attending to approval requests. In looking into why, we realized that the email notification does not call out 'Approval Needed' or requested, it just lists the project/task name.

It would be incredibly helpful if it was populated in the subject line, as well as highlighted in the body of the email somewhere. In our exploration, it was buried down in the email and can easily be overlooked as just 'another update'. 

With so many email notifications, calling attention to the approvals would definitely help expedite the approval process and avoid unnecessary bottlenecks. 

It would also be helpful to call it out in your Wrike inbox as well. Right now it just says, "Person X added you as an approver". Making it more of a 'Your approval is needed' type of message would be super helpful.

I cannot like this task request enough. The email I received about the approval was simply "[someone else] added [me] to approval"

There is no callout of the approval description outside what is in the project history blurb, and no real call to action. Ideally, when an approval is sent, it should be actionable from the email. The person would see something like this: 

[Person name] invited you to approve [Task/Project name] (this should also be the title of the email)

Approval Description: "[Whatever the approval description text is]"

 

Any attachments would be attached to the email, and when they click either Approve or Reject, it would update on the Wrike task or project. An email should be sent to the person who requested the approval as well as all approvers when the approval process is completed. 

 

Thank you for keeping our feedback in mind as you continue to develop the platform!
