If you have a task and you have work for that task that you want detail out more you have 2 ways of doing almost the same thing:
- You could use a checklist in the description of the task
- You can create subtasks
If all this work is for the same person and has the same deadline than the task it could make sense to use the checklist functionality but if at a later time you conclude that one (or more) of the items in the checklist should be assigned to another person or has a different deadline it is not possible to convert this checklist.
So overall the checklist is a way to "assign" and/or "track" work but it falls outside the normal Wrike way of tracking work. It could be that in certain scenarios using checklists makes sense but if as a company you want to use Wrike to drive consistent processes we should not have 2 ways of tracking work. So I would like to request that there would be a option to disable the tasklist (checkbox) functionality. This would allow companies that want to only use tasks and subtasks to track work to enforce this.
Alternatively an easy way to convert checklists to subtasks would still allow 2 way to track work but allow without re-entering all data if the need arises (different person or date) to switch from checklist to subtasks
