Assign time tracking categories to folders, projects, and tasks

I would use the time tracking categories, perhaps, except that you have to assign the category to every time entry. It would be better to be able to assign a category to the folder, project, or task, so that every time entry to that task, etc., inherited the time category by default.

Does that make sense?

Yes I am missing that exact same feature.
Was hoping category per task would have been implemented with the Blueprint, but alas the blueprint is just a slightly (tiny bit) more advanced way to manage templates, than simply copying (duplicate) the folder/project/task named "Template xxx" every time.

The "Timesheet" tab was great, but now the team often forgets to update the category, since it is no longer presented in the same way during time registrations.

This could be mitigated somehow by allowing adminstrators to add the category later, at least as a tempory solution while we wait for the feature.

Hi there,

We'd love this feature as well. Just FYI: this is a similar request to https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360016789053-REQUEST-Separate-Timelog-Categories-per-User-Group-and-or-Project-Folder

@Lisa, asking people to upvote in order to reach 60 votes is the standard response from the Wrike team, but do you guys actually look at the request itself re topic? Many times there are multiple threads covering the same topic or very nearly so. It would be great if your team doesn't just look at the number of the upvotes, but also what the actual request is, because often the upvotes are spread across different threads, which gives a skewed view.

Hi Fleur Komen, thanks a lot for referring to this similar thread here! I totally understand your sentiment about the threads where there are similar asks! We do try to keep it clean and we mark some threads as "duplicates", and it's also why we do ask the Community members to use the search before posting a suggestion here.

I was about to create a similar past, for how my team is managed I need to be able to assign category to tasks from the beginning, otherwise my team often does not get it right or forgets. Also, it would be very useful for me to be able to assign categories as admin to time entries.
