Automatic Assignee on Tasks for people on Vacation/Leave

We use the "automatic assign" function for some of our workflows that go to specific users. As well as "automatic assign" in Request forms. If someone is on a leave and do not have access to Wrike then some of their tasks are in limbo until the person who assigns it realizes it. Since there is no notification to communicate the individual is not in the office (even if they put their vacation in their calendar).

It would be great to have a way to be able to temporarily assign another user to receive the tasks that a person on leave gets automatically assigned to.

The other request is different. This one is about contingency when someone is not in the office, changing assignees automatically if they are flagged in Wrike as OOO. I like this suggestion, it would be helpful for sure, as right now we have to manually account for vacations and have people monitor the Intake folder regularly. Small team, so it's manageable, but I can imagine it would be a logistical headache if I had a large team.

I have a small team, but working on a variety of projects, so it would be great to auto-assign to anyone covering a PTO so schedules don't get behind. Right now, my team is manually adding their coverage to their tasks.

Hi everyone, apologies for the delay in response here.

There are currently no plans to add this suggestion to the short-term roadmap. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know.
