Threaded Conversation

Just like Slack and many other messaging platforms, Wrike needs a "threaded" conversation ability.

This is key so as not to clutter the main page with such discussion as well as to organize discussions about different aspects of the SAME issue within a single ticket.

Hi, yes, tools such as Asana, Hive, Teamwork, and ClickUp have the ability to have a comment that is outside a task and broadcasted to the general team.  Very useful, in fact as I move along with Wrike I'm finding this one of the biggest things lacking.

Wrike has really nicely built out commenting streams, it would be enough to be able to place these comments in a space or project, but add the ability for a separate subject line like Email, and you'd achieve this functionality.  If you could resolve as well, that would be a further bonus.  

Another benefit would be you could label these as "project updates" in projects.  Again, you'd wind up with a feature superior to Asana, which has this update capability, a differentiator vs. Wrike, but Asana has far inferior Project management.  All Wrike needs is the update/threaded conversation and I think at that point there would be nothing in Asana, or some of these other tools, that would be better with Projects.  In my view, Wrike's projects are the best in every other aspect!

Thanks!

I recently asked about a similar update to Wrike. 

Our team uses tasks for external communication with our supply partners and we need thread/topic based commenting capability v. stream based commenting capability to help us to keep multiple "conversations" organized within one task.  

If you have seen the Thread based commenting with rich text formatting capability in Microsoft Teams/Channels - that would be an ideal improvement to the current commenting sections of tasks.

Would really like to see this implemented.  

This is very similar to these two, in which in particular Daniel Lipschitz makes great points in each (one is his own suggestion).

I'm not sure why this one, which you guys did give a status without the 60 votes you require.

I hope the "Product Team" is weighing this request with all the true support it has across these three similar requests.  

It's not 100% clear to me as I read this again if Ahmed Bahar intended this post to be in reference to a separate "chat" capability outside tasks, like in Asana, or the ability to thread existing comments, per the posts I quoted.  Both would be great.  Bottom line is we need some ability to communicate within Wrike in Threads somewhere.  Especially in this age of Remote Working, chats have taken on particular importance and their degree of implementation in a Work Mgmt tool is paramount!

Thank you for showing your support for this suggestion Al Sape! I've checked with the team to see if they are planning to work on introducing threads in Stream, and for now, they don't have such plans. I'll let you know if there's any news on the topic in the future.
