    This.ย  Yes, please.ย 

    Our team schedules time every month to manually go through all our projects and move completed ones to the archive folder.ย  This presents two problems:

    1. Our department folders are flooded with completed tasks that make parsing through them difficult.

    2. Once the project has been moved to the archive folder, generating reports (eg. All completed Marketing projects in Q1) is nearly impossible to make.

    I'd love to see this process automated, but also to see projects moved into a relevant Archive folder that still pertains to the department it came from.ย  Would allow reporting to be simpler and for better Wrike QoL.

    I'd love to have a workflow on a project. So that when a project goes from green to completed, we can move it to a Mastering folder. Being able to trigger moves at the project (parent) level would be useful to us. I think it is similar to what you are requesting.

    I am also looking for a way to automatically move projects from one folder to an "archive" folder once they are marked complete. Until that feature is built - what is everyone else doing as an interim process?

    I think I will just create an Archive Folder with more sub-folders to match out existing folder tree so that I can still locate projects later down the road. Is this similar to what others are doing?

    ย 

    Thanks!

    I am also interested on when this might be available to use.ย  I would love to have a workflow that automatically moved tasks to different projects once the status is changed.

    I don't understand how there isn't a native way to automatically archive projects after completion. I mentioned this to our Wrike rep(s) several times now. I personally have to spend time every week/month to move completed projects to the Archive folder we created manually, based on the implementation team's recommendation.

    This wouldn't be a problem if there was an easier way to move projects en masse. Right now I have to drop and drop projects individually (can't multi-select projects) or go into each project clear the folders and type the archive folder.ย 

    Generally speaking, controlling and filtering projects is a nightmare. I truly can't believe how this was not sorted out in year 1 of the software.ย 

    Yesterday I logged in to our Basecamp account to collaborate on an existing project and realized how much I miss the simplicity of project and task management of BC. I'm in utter disbelief that our workspace is getting more disorganized or cumbersome to organize now than before Wrike. Organizing is a time commitment of itself.

    Every time I request this or ask about it I get the same "not on our roadmap" response.

    File me under the "Not a Happy Customer" folder and mark me "Needs to speak to the manager."ย
