If you're like me, your Wrike workspace can get out of control really fast. Has anyone found a good way to prioritize and categorize tasks in such a way that it makes the workspace visually easier to navigate?
For example, I tried using Covey's Prioritization Matrix to help (Tasks are 1. Urgent and Important, 2. Not Urgent but Important, 3. Urgent and Not Important, 4. Not Urgent and Not Important). I set up a priority custom field and used these 4 values in a drop down list. However, when I started categorizing tasks, I realized that most things fell under "Not Urgent but Important." It's very difficult for me to say something I have to do at work is not important--isn't it all?!
I've also tried to use task statuses in this way. I set up a custom workflow with the statuses Priority, In Progress, Waiting on Someone, Waiting on Approval, Maybe Today, Completed. I liked this because it gave me a clear visual on what I HAD to get done today, where I was stalled, what I could possibly get to if I had time, etc. But I found that constantly switching task statuses was time consuming, difficult to maintain and sometimes interfered with another custom workflow. I run into the same issue when trying to multi-tag tasks to a folder.
Has anyone found a great way to do this with their daily/weekly tasks? I'd love some screenshots and examples of how you use this!
