    So, we do this in 2 ways:

    One is that we have an adminย or the users actually enter their time off into their 'work schedule' in wrike - which is found under profile. Then, an admin can open up the team in settings and see who's off. There is no 'overview' tho and other non-admin users can't see the schedules. The only reason we continue to do this is so that tasks cant be scheduled on people's days off.

    The main way that we show time-off is to have everyone fill out a request form which auto-creates a time-off task in a folder. Then, we share the folder's calendar URL. This way it's a team-accessible global calendar. We also assign the time-off task to that use so that they can log vacation or sick time. We've expanded this calendar to include company holidays and also meetings and, sometimes, project deliverables.

    Yes, this would be a great feature to have.ย  Since the system can recognize when a user is out of the office (as long as they've indicated it in their work schedule) it would be nice to be able to see that on the Gantt chart view, especially when moving tasks around to different users.

    Hi Laura, has Noel's innovative approach above helpful for now? It's a really good way to do this.

    If not, you could post your suggestion in the Product Feedback section so our Product Team haveย visibility of it and others canย vote for the idea. If you do post it there I'd suggest adding; how you're managing this now, how you'd like to manage it and what changes you'd suggest to achieve it ๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for commenting.ย  We've been having people put their vacation days in.ย  However, I still have to log in to each individual's work schedule to see when they're off.ย  It would be nice to see all of them in one frame.

    I'd love to leave my suggestion in the Product Feedback section, however I'm not sure where that is.ย  Can you please point me in the right direction?

    ย 

    Thanks,

    -Laura

    Sorry, I just realized forย  our group we can see vacations all at once in the Workload view.ย  I see that when someone is out of the office, that column is greyed out.ย  I didn't see that before, but I think that solves my problem.ย

    Thanks!
