[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Current User filter in Reports

The current user is available as a filter on dashboard widgets, but it would be nice to also have that filter option on reports. I realize that the user does not necessarily directly interact with the system to generate the report, but it's still being delivered to or run by a particular person.

A very common use case is to share a timesheet report. It would surely be ideal to create one report filtered to current user, for sharing with all employees that track time.

This would be a great feature especially until you can get the feature implemented where you can create and share reports so that users can customize the report for their use case. E.g. Their Project or their PTO. Etc.

Also, the "ME" text under a USER filter mislead me to thinking reports where i selected ME would translate relative to the user when i shared rhe report.

Yes, please. This is definitely a need for us. Otherwise we have to have each person create a report for themselves and if something has to change everybody has to change it. 

Can someone from the Wrike team weigh in on whether this is on the road map?

We have a set of Collaborator users that can't have dashboards.  They fill out request forms and then they have to do approvals on the content that comes out of the project.  Having Current User an option in the filter of reports would be helpful so I could set up one report called My Approvals and it would filter on Pending Approvals by current user.

This is a pretty big gap for in my opinion.  I'm trying to help out the entire team  by setting up some reports for task maintenance and I'm figuring out they'll have to each create copies of the report and reconfigure for themselves.  Wrike is super easy to use but I'd still rather create one report than having to teach users how to set up the report for themselves.  Instead of three reports we'll now have 30x3 reports for the same purpose.

We're still new with our deployment, but I expect to have the collaborator use case as well.   Its not practical to have to create a status report on behalf of each of our collabotors.

I completely agree that this is a big gap in reporting, especially for time entries. It would be great to create one global report in our environment for team members to review their timesheet entries on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. Currently we need to ask each team member to create their own report to do so. This becomes administratively difficult as the team grows and as we onboard new users. This feature would help with being able to set standards across the team for how we review and analyze various information.
