Add Actual Project Completion Date - Not Just the Date of Completion

I want to see a measurable field with a project Start, Due, and Completion dates within the different views.

Currently, there is not a measurable way to view/report when a project was completed vs. when it was due. This impacts metrics as you'd want to see when a project actually started, when it was supposed to be completed, and the actual completion.

I agree. I would also like to see the same apply to tasks in Wrike.  When using MS Project, we were able to set Deadline dates, Scheduled Finish, and Actual Finish dates (among others) which allowed us to better evaluate performance/trends.

In our case, we did a workaround by adding an additional date field in Wrike with the "actual completion" information. The tasks would be later exported to Excel. By subtracting the actual date of completion vs the allocated time for the task, you would be able to identify whether a task was completed before, on time, or past the due date. From here onward, you can use Excel's charting tools (Wrike's Analytics is way too basic)...

This is not the most efficient way of getting this information, however on lack of support on this basic function we had to come up with clever ideas...

I also support all of the feedback on adding an Actual Completion Date.  @Nicolas, thank you for sharing your solution.  It was helpful in adding a custom field to my project views and exports used for project metrics reporting!

I was in Wrike and shocked that this doesn't exist.

If I want to pull a report on all projects that closed in January there is not filter to do this, just the Finish date, which for us is often not accurate. I would be great to have a field to pull the date stamp of when a project switched from Active to completed. Seems pretty strait forward, but since this is already on the task level. 

Please consider!!

Thanks for all you do Wrike team!!

I believe the above post is a step in the right direction.. but a  feature I didn't see mentioned which I think is the main feature needed in this post is. Here is a specific use case - what if I have a task that is "Send email out" due 4/15, in which the email is automatically sent out through an online system, but I am out of office until 4/20, so I can't mark it complete until I get back to the office. My completion date will be 5 days late, but the email was actually sent out on the 15th. The work around of adding a custom field of actual completion will work, but a more concrete feature would be very useful in reporting and in day to day use!
