Sort MyWork by Start Date

I have the free version because I'm simply viewing information populated in Write by another team.  I need to know the Start Date of a specific task.  Right now, I search for projects that I want my team involved in and save them to MyWork.


But, the only date that shows up is the end date.  I can't find any way to configure the information in the MyWork window.  Specifically, I need to know the start date to ensure my team is prepared at the right time.

 

Any way to do this?

Hi Scott, currently My Work is sorted by the due date. Usually, this is the date that people want to see. However you're not alone, there's a Product Request here related that might interest you. If so please vote and feel free to comment with your specific request 👍

Hi Stephen - where is the Product Request please? Our team members rather see when they have to start working on something than when they were supposed to finish the task...

Thanks!

Hi Mauricio, thanks for your post. I've updated the link in the previous post, not sure what happened there.

Currently, there isn't a huge vote for this feature so please ensure to add yours. Our Product Team has thought about this in the past however right now there is no new information around changing this at the moment. Again, your vote and input on the feedback post helps with getting more exposure to the idea 👍

Thanks for updating the link.

We made a big deal of dashboards. We told people to look at them for what to do next... People look at their dashboard to know what they have to do now to keep work flowing, instead they realise too late that a task is due and not enough time is left to accomplish it.

They widgets should really have an option to show ordered by Start Date so people know when to get into something.

Sorry, Mauricio, I think we're talking about different things. This post refers to My Work, the standalone view in Wrike.

If you're referring to Dashboard Widgets, you can filter tasks by Start Date as shown below. This will show all tasks set to start in a set timeframe. This won't change the date on the task in the widget's list but will only show tasks that start within the dates specified. Let me know if this help 👍

Thanks Stephen... Yes, sorry I see this is My Work. The Dashboard can be filtered by it will still not sort by Start date though.

Hi Mauricio, you're totally right.

However, this widget will show tasks that are within the Start date you've filtered for, giving you a list of task for a set date.

At a glance, the date displayed on the right of the task will still show the Due Date. I know this is not ideal, and I can see you have added your vote and input on the Feedback task, thank you! If there's an update soon, I'll update that post!

Yes please, definitely need to see start date on tasks in the dashboard; this is really key when you have many tasks with date ranges.
