    I dont really find setting importance or urgency to work because most of my team would always think their needs are most important lol.ย  We have a shared dashboard so every user has the same look.ย  Organized by what is on your plate today, what is due this week, backlogged / non time critical, incoming requests so the entire company has visibility to any that sit too long and tasks I sent to others.

    ย 

    The good news is no one wants to be the oldest task on the incoming request or the entire company sees you sitting on it :)

    Thanks for sharing, Ivan! I love seeing screenshots of other user dashboards.ย 

    I guess the need for this comes down to the nature of the company and job. We are a marketing department for a large credit union and a lot of the tasks that come in are widely varied and don't necessarily have a set deadline. It's really easy for us to get overloadedย with tasks that vary in priority and importance. (When I say priority and importance I'm always talking in terms of the credit union's goals, not my own wants.)

    So I come in every day with tasks that must get done that day, sure, but once I'm done with those, where do I start? Most of the time, I go through my Wrike task list and write the next things I want to tackle down in my notebook. Just seems like there must be a better way.ย

    Anna,

    I get that, that is a struggle for us too but we just encourage people to self manage and set their own deadlines.ย  My personal opinion is when people set their own deadlines they are more likely to get it all done vs just try to prioritize without date help.

    But, that doesnt work for everyone.
