    Yes.  This would prevent a lot of the work Wrike creates by forcing you to constantly update status.  The name of the game is automation and Wrike has a surprisingly low level of items that are automized

    This feature would be helpful for our team as well. It's tedious to change the status in the subtask then go up one level to change the parent task as well. It would be ideal if we could choose which subtask to link the status to since we usually have at least 2 or 3 subtasks.

    This would be great for my team as well. I wish I could create a rule in which a task would be automatically assigned when the dependent task is closed out. It would save me a lot of time and manual effort.

    I would be fine if the parent task would just update to complete when all the sub tasks are completed. But I can see how this functionality would be very useful.

    Hey everyone, a quick update here;
     
    The Product team is currently working on functionality that would allow for parent tasks to change status once all subtasks have reached a certain status. While they are interested in allowing parent tasks to change once a certain amount of these subtasks have satisfied these requirements, there are currently no plans to add this suggestion to the short term roadmap. If anything changes. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
     
    If you have any questions, feel free to let me know.
