    Hey Rob,  for now, perhaps a best practice internally could be on the person to unassign themselves as soon as they change status. I know it's not ideal but it might work for now.

    The problem here is that often two or more people may need to work together on the next stage in the flow so automagically removing someone might not be for everyone. It's an interesting idea so thanks for sharing here!๐Ÿ™Œ

    I'd like to help this post get some more attention - the potential for Wrike in terms of Automation (something that the recent Wrike Productivity Tour was very keen on promoting) is HUGE. 

    Reducing manual tasks and mistakes is something worthwhile to further develop- being able to un-assign and re-assign on workflow changes is something that would be fantastic for this purpose.

    I would love to be able to use this as a feature!

    agree - if we have to do it manually, it's error prone.

    We also wait for this feature.

    Workflow can add new assignee to the task as status changed, but each new status change adds new assignee, so if we have workflow with several stages each user has the task in incompleated work even thัƒ stage already passed. It confuses people and makes reports uncertain.

    I would like to bump this also. 

     

    Its causing a bit of frustration in our team with the inability to automatically unassign people.

    Upvote! We've had to add some Wrike Integrate recipes to handle task unassignments on status change that would be much easier to do if we could remove as well as assign users within the Workflow definition.

    Bumping this as well, and looking forward the next update post product team research. Seems like a no-brainer and would be extremely useful in setting up automated workflows.
