Show starred items first when doing tagging/folder additions

The search works really well, but we have multiple folder trees based on the same structure, so when searching for things, they all show up.  If starred items showed up first, then that would help limit things, plus in many cases, we may not even have to type anything to tag it to a folder.

Right now, the dropdown shows the items in the folder panel that are below the Wrike team level (highest level).  If the favorites showed up before that, I think it would work better.

We have structure that looks like (simplified):

2018

clients

>projects

>>teams


2019

clients

>projects

>>teams

 

TEMPLATE

clients

>projects

>>teams

So in our case above, if I wanted to tag the project/folder to a specific folder like "client", I get 3 results from the 2018, 2019, and the Template folders.  Then I have to use the flyout info display to see which actual project it should go to.

Thus when duplicating or tagging current projects/folders, if the starred items showed up first, then it would make it quicker to pick the items.  I may not even have to type at all if the project is located in the starred section.  If not, I use the search per normal to get to something else.

Thanks for the request Francesco. It's an interesting solution to use the star option to prioritise the tag's search function Our Product Team will be made aware of the request.

In the meantime, perhaps using a naming convention that doesn't duplicate any Folder, Project or Task names may avoid this. For example, to name 'Client' Folder to 'Client 2018' instead of that Folder. Having an efficient naming convention is paramount to keep an organised Folder tree.

If you'd like to discuss naming conventions and Folder trees further, I'm happy to help here 😊

Even with an efficient naming convention, if you're working across multiple projects and teams with similar work the folder tagging can get incredibly cumbersome, our organization has a number of different 'Content' related projects that are shared with me, only one of which I actually add work to.  In order to get things tagged correctly I have to type out the entire name of the correct project (until the type ahead stops showing all of the options I'm not adding to), and when I'm trying to move quickly I frequently end up putting items in the wrong place by mistake.  Some way to limit or prioritize these would be very helpful.
