Welcome to the Product Feedback section. This is the area of the Community where you can help shape the future of the product!
 
The ideas posted in this section not only intrigue our teams, they also play a critical role in deciding how a new or existing feature will look in the future. Using the Community's voting system allows our teams to assess the popularity of suggestions which adds huge value to internal discussions and roadmap planning.
 
Once an idea reaches the minimum threshold of 60 upvotes, it will receive one of the below statuses:
 
No Statusthe critical threshold for a post to receive a status update is 60 upvotes. Until this threshold is reached Wrike's Community team won't add a status. This does not mean the Community Team won't read and log your idea.
 
[Backburner ⏳] Our Product Team are interested in the idea and it will be reviewed during future internal discussions.
 
[Investigating 🕵️‍♀️] The Product team is looking at its feasibility,  possible effects on other features, and the time it may take to complete. The team hasn't officially decided to take on a request and no time frame is available at this stage.
 
[Coming Soon...🕑] The idea is on the roadmap and a general timeframe may be available but is subject to change. Watch this space!
 
[In the making  🔧] The idea is actively in development (engineers are working on it!). An exact timeframe for release may not be available until a later stage.
 
[Launched! 🚀] The suggested feature has been released. 
 
[Not planned] Not planned and unlikely to be part of the Product Team’s roadmap in the near future.

Thanks for sharing this! Are only votes for the original post calculated? I have noticed that some people vote on the comments within the original post. Are those included too?

Hi Becca, currently we look at both, but we noticed this too and have now changed it. From last week the comments on feedback posts have thumbs up option to make it clearer where to place your vote. Thanks for bringing this to our attention 🙌

Hi Stephen,

Would it be possible to sort all the product feedback by the assigned status by Wrike (e.g. investigating, coming soon, etc.)?

As the account admin for 90 employees this would be SO useful for when I receive complaints from our employees - I could reassure people with items being investigated, coming soon, etc. instead of having to click through every single piece of feedback...

@Soraya Hi there! I'm sorry for the delayed reply and I'm jumping in for Stephen here. This is such a great idea (bummed we didn't think of it 😉). Our Community platform doesn't have a way for us to do that by default, but I'm checking with a developer to see if there's any way we can make something like that happen. 🙌

@Stephen Jumping in here while you're out!

@Soraya, we haven't forgotten about this ask.

For now, what I do, is the search for the status e.g. "Investigating", or I pop the related emoji we use in there and it returns a list of posts in that status.

Currently, there are platform constraints around having tags but we're looking into possible workarounds with the development team 👍

Welcome to the Community, NICOLAS BECERRA🙂 No plans at the moment - please feel free to upvote these two Product Feedback threads here:

https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002185185-Flowchart-tools

https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360041272513-Create-Upload-a-Flow-Chart

The number of votes helps our Product team understand the popularity of a suggestion. 

Also, here one of our Community members suggests an interesting idea on how this can be accomplished using the current Wrike functionality. Hope this helps!

I see all this talk of "upvoting" everywhere.

WHERE AND HOW DO YOU "UPVOTE"?   Sheesh.   C'mon do you guys do any UE testing?  Do you look at your pages and see how they actually present to users? 

The only clear and obvious way to "upvote" is to click the heart icon.  So that's upvoting?  You have to do it for each comment?

Hi John Rakoczy! You don't have to "like" (=upvote) each comment, just the post with a suggestion that is at the top of the page 🙂

Thanks Lisa.  That information "To upvote this topic, 'like' the topmost comment" needs to be prominently displayed at the top of any page where you are monitoring voting.  Because it is not, the metrics you use to determine what people want are completely off.

To illustrate how important the UE is, and having a person who isn't familiar with your process review the final product (in this case, how to upvote suggestions from your customer base).... imagine the US election process where there are NO instructions anywhere.  They just handed you a ballot and said "be sure to mark who you like!".   People would use different color inks, some would "X" the boxes, others would fill them in.  Some would circle candidates, others would underline them.  SO the end result is you really don't know what people want.

Instructions are very important like that ;)

But with this thread, the topmost comment doesn't really vote for anything.  So even having customers "like" the topmost post isn't a good solution.

The simplest, and easiest, and most accurate way to know what your customers want is to ASK them at the top of each topic page.  Put a little check box there that says "To 'upvote' this topic as a feature you would like to see in Wrike, check this box."

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the voting process here, John Rakoczy!

We'll definitely take it into account because we want to make sure the process is as clear as possible 🙂

Hello,

Please we need URGENTLY the possibility of importing WBS from MS Project and automatic grouping of tasks into GROUPS depending on WBS ID.

 

This is a MUST for any project management software.

 

Thanks,
