[Status: Backburner ⏳] Adding Progress Bar in Tasks

Hi,
I'm Kris Antoni from Toge Productions Pte. Ltd., a video game development studio based in Indonesia. My company has been using Wrike for project management and planning for over a year. We are also using Wrike as an OKR (Objectives and Key Results) tracking system.

It would be great if there's a Progress Bar feature in each Task so that teams or individuals can share and track progress on tasks. Just a simple bar with 0 to 100% where users can update and have it visible on the List, Table, and Timeline views.

This can be beneficial for tracking production as well. For example there's a task "Produce 100 boxes", the team can update/track how many boxes has been produced easily.

Here's a mockup of the Progress Bar

Another vote for the progress % bar for tasks (and have them be an option in determining how the Project Progress rollup is calculated) Right now the Project Progress rollup feature is just not accurate (no matter what setting I use). Many times we have concurrent tasks that are almost complete, so the project is almost complete, but since the project progress works off of only completed items, the percentage complete is much lower (and of little use).

Thanks a lot for sharing your feedback on Project progress and for supporting this suggestion to add progress to tasks as well Kelly Wilson

Adding another vote for having a progress bar for tasks. Wendy Pardo and Kelly Wilson explained it beautifully.
It feels odd that Wrike doesn't have this functionality, which is so core to project management. It should be a no-brainer to work on adding this functionality. Hopefully soon, then?

Hello Fleur Komen, thank you for sharing. We do understand the need of our members for this functionality and passing on the feedback we receive here to our Product team.

Unfortunately, the team doesn't have this suggestion in their short term roadmap and the status remains as Backburner but we'll be posting here as soon as we have an update 🙋🏻‍♀️

Cansu can you suggest a workaround? Is there any way (possibly using custom calculations or analytics) to show the percentage of the completion of a task based on its subtask completion?

Thank you for contributing to our Community! 😄

I just upvoted this as well. This seems like a basic project management function that is very disappointing in Wrike. Is there a public product roadmap? How do we get this off the Back Burner?

I could be off base, but it seems that this request is basic required functionality.  So if it is not in the product initially, OK, but would be added very quickly to make the product valuable.  How the enhancement request process works seems a bit of a mystery because this was first brought up in 2018 and it appeared that something was going to happen - how could we possibly be in 2022 without a clear understanding of a product roadmap?  The functionality as it exists right now is pretty much worthless (you don't get credit for a task until it has been completed - so 99% is the same as 0%) - and having some kind of task completion tracking to give insight into overall project health seems absolutely essential in any PM Management Software - I have never worked in any software where I did not measure task progress against schedule and roll that up to project health.  Being 90% through a task schedule but completed only 10% of the task work vs. 10% of the schedule and completing 90% of the work is 101 to project management.  

1

Cost Variance (CV) = Earned Value (EV) – Actual Cost (AC)

2

Schedule Variance (SV) = Earned Value (EV) – Planned Value (PV)

3

Cost Performance Index (CPI) = EV / AC

4

Schedule Performance Index (SPI) = EV / PV

5

EAC = AC + Bottom-up ETC

6

EAC = BAC / Cumulative CPI

7

EAC = AC + (BAC – EV)

8

EAC = AC + [BAC – EV / (Cumulative CPI ´ Cumulative SPI)]
