    Love this idea! Sharing with people outside the team (especially those whose instinct is to print in order to read something) is key. The sharing of things with a link (like in the gantt chart view) like a special dashboard or table view would be so handy!

    Hey guys, just wanted to mention here that you can use Report Snapshots.

    Collaborators can view Reports that are shared with them, and they don't take up a license seat. Hope that helps 🙌

    Won't work for 2 reasons:

    1) My dashboard has 6 different items in them. 3 different states, action items can be in any one of them. Open, Pending Closure, Closed. We also have Risks, high/medium/low. They'd need to run 6 reports. And for VPs and above, that means they'd make me run 6 different reports and email them. 

    2) Reports don't offer drill down. IE, right now I have 29 open items, 30 pending closure, 6 closed. (project just started). But which ones? That's another report. If they want to know what those 29 open items were they need to run another report. I could either write a single report for all action items but it could be long and they need to skip the info they don't care about, or write 6 reports.

    Both those paths lead to "senior people will not use reports. They'll just make me, combo project/product owner, email them things."

    Unfortunately this has the secondary effect of "Wrike is only something the little people use. It is not meant for senior people, and it's just so they don't have to email each other excel or project plans. It's not really that useful, certainly not more than $X/year" Which makes it much impossible for me to beg for more seats, at some point they'll tell me to go back to using a share drive. Or worse, SharePoint (ACK NO)
