Creating Tasks Directly from Dashboards
I last posted on this 12/22/17, and haven't seen any comments on it - perhaps someone else already has a thread going, but I can't find it.
Using dashboards is one of the most appealing features in Wrike, in my opinion. But it's very frustrating to not be able to right-click and create a context-appropriate task in a dashboard widget. Choosing 'New Task' in the top left simply launches a non-contextual new task window.
Presently, the workaround is to open the widget in List View, then add a task from there - which will put it in the proper folder/project, but will not provide the correct workflow status to put it in the right widget - that's still a manual process.
So - to summarize, the request would simply be the ability to right-click in a dashboard widget and quickly/efficiently create a contextually-appropriate task.
That's a really cool request, Alan! I agree that dashboards are one of the best features of Wrike. I never considered this functionality but it would definitely be useful. Very creative thinking!
Some of the best advice I've received from Wrike is to have users 'live' in dashboards as much as possible - so the more we can do to keep them there, the better!
If I'm looking at a dashboard I have to have another tab open to create tasks. I'd also like this feature.
Love this concept. I've often found myself wanting to create tasks from the dashboard view. Gives you A LOT of options in terms of how you want to filter and task from.
Hey everyone, thank you for all of your suggestions here! It's been passed on to the Product team.
I don't have an update for you at the moment, but as soon as I do, I'll be sure to let you know.
A big +1 for me! :)
Thank you for sharing your input here, Louis-Félix Cauchon! No changes here at the moment - I'll keep you posted if there are any updates.
I am a new Wrike user, and just set up my primary dashboard. This is something that I would find VERY helpful, and I am unsure why it is not a feature yet. Please enable this option!
