A Priority Matrix is a great way of organizing tasks and can easily be setup in Wrike.
By creating "priority folders" you give tasks a priority and change it by simply dragging it from one list to another. This is especially useful when setup as a custom dashboard that sorts those priorities into four boxes setup like a square.
Here is how I setup mine, you can use whatever naming conventions you like but the basic idea it to create a box with 4 sections to group your tasks based on how important/critical, as well as how urgent/immediate they are.
I created 4 folders for the following, giving them short names and colors I could quickly recognize
- Critical and Immediate | crit-im
- Critical but Not Immediate | crit-not
- Not Critical but Immediate | im-not
- Neither | not
I personally nest these folders under a "Priorities" Folder just to keep them separate from the rest of my folder structure.
Next I create a custom dashboard and add the priority folders to it. I setup it like a grid and then as I add tasks to it I can drag them from one list/box to another to either raise or lower the priority of the task.
