Convert a comment into a task

It happened many times that some users would just keep adding request into the comment area of a task.

It would be useful to easily be able to transform those comments into new tasks or new subtasks.

I strongly support this feature! We often have users who provide progress and next steps in the comments section, and it would be great to highlight the next steps and automatically convert them into tasks/subtasks.

What a great idea! Yes, I can see this getting used a lot and saving users' time.

Add my vote. Just as Wrike can convert an email to a Task, Wrike should be able to convert virtually anything (comment, description, calendar item, subTask, email, note...) to a Task.

Hey everyone, thank you for all of your feedback here!

The Product team is interested in implementing something like this, but there are currently no plans on the short-term roadmap. As soon as I have another update for you, I'll let you know.

Agreed, this would be greatly beneficial, not sure why it isn't there as a basic function. At the moment we copy-paste into a task which is a slower process. It's about time its added!

What a useful feature!!  You have my vote.  Not due to lack of trying, but the end-users will never understand the lifecycle of a task is complete when it reaches "Completion" stage.  It would be awesome to be able to generate a new task from a comment.

Welcome to the Community Chirag Gandhi! 👋  

There's no update at the moment; please check out this post for more info on how the Product Feedback forum works. In short, we do pass all feedback to the Product team, and once the suggestion reaches the 60 votes threshold, we add a Product status to it. The vote count really helps the team understand the popularity of an idea, so please upvote if you haven't yet 👍

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else!
