Overdue tasks

Hi there, 

As we have users who unsubscribe to the email notifications & rarely check their dashboards, I was hoping there was a Wrikebot function for overdue tasks similar to the All Previous Tasks Completed Wrikebot. Something like, Hey this is overdue, please change the date or mark complete ?

I find getting people to check the dashboards a challenge as well. I think a Wrikebot would be a great idea!

This is a great idea!!! I do find that it is easy for people to miss or let due dates slip. This would be great.

This is also our main concern now. A Wrikebot sending emails to assignee when a task is overdue will be helpful indeed!

As far as I know this has been ignored for almost a year now -

Hi all, I can assure you nothing here is ignored, promise! We have an API connected to Community which brings every single idea to our product team. Read a little more about how this works here. We get so many ideas that we wanted to add some automation so nothing is lost, and we don't have the time to respond to all ideas.

If you're stuck and needs some workaround, I suggest posting to How To or even Best Practices forums to get a conversation going as this is where we're usually helping with solutions 🙂

The team has no immediate plans to create bot reminders for this right now, but it's certainly a good idea.

For me, it's not only how people on your team manage the projects they're involved in, but how they organize their work in Wrike to ensure they have this visibility.

Check out our Account Manager Dan's There's a Widget for That post, I think it may be a helpful way for everyone on your team to ensure they have visibility on a daily basis around what's overdue, due today and due later. You can create one of these widgets, set the filter as 'current user' and share with your team so it's set up for them straight away. 

If I have further information from the Product Team about this idea being added to the roadmap I'll drop back here with the info 👍

How about one year after you stated the team is not working on an alerting system for overdue tasks? Will this ever be on the table? It's been a glaring oversight since as long as I could remember, and I have been on this platform for AGES.

Hey everyone, a quick update here - 

There are currently no plans to add this suggestion to the short-term roadmap. However, there is a feature called "Highlights" that is coming to our mobile apps that will notify you of any overdue tasks from the Inbox tab. If there are any updates here, I'll be sure to let you know.
