[Status: Launched! ๐Ÿš€] Auto-tag Tasks and Subtasks with Folders within Project Blueprints

It would be helpful to have tasks and/or subtasks within a project blueprint be tagged with folders (outside of other blueprints) such that when a project is created from the blueprint, all of the underlying tasks/subtasks are auto-tagged accordingly.

This is somewhat related to this existing post which is for keeping folder tags when duplicating tasks. This is especially useful when multiple teams are using Wrike and certain projects are collaborative across teams. Being able to keep additional folder tags would allow us to automatically distribute work to each team how they want to receive it.

@all, I've updated the status here. What's does this mean? In short, the product team like the idea, however, it has not been added to any short-term roadmaps but will be added to ongoing internal discussions for future planning to start investigating.

I'll keep you posted as this happens ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Jumping on here.  This would be highly beneficial for us to be added too.  We have to use tags for us to be able to see hierarchy Folders in reports.  Tagging manually is very tedious.  I vote in favor of this.

Hey everyone, a quick update here - 

It is now possible to auto-tag tasks and subtasks from Blueprints now! I've changed the status of this post to "Launched". Thank you for sharing all of your feedback ๐Ÿ˜Š

At the moment, these tags won't appear if the blueprint is used in a request form. The Product team is planning on adding this, and as soon as I have more information, I'll be sure to let you know.

Quick question: Bug, intended feature, mistake by me?:

When I load a Blueprint which includes auto-tagged tasks and I delete the resulting Projekt again, the folders which were auto-tagged to tasks still include those tasks. I was hoping the tasks would be deleted too.

thx

Hi Johannes Florian

Lisa here with Wrike Support to help you out. 

This is expected behavior as described in our Help Center article: "When you delete a Folder or Project which has tasks, subtasks, Subfolders, and Subprojects: if those tasks, subtasks, Subfolders, and Subprojects are tagged (included) in additional locations, then they will continue to live in those additional locations even after the Folder or Project is deleted."  It makes no difference as to how the tasks were created and tagged in multiple locations - as long as they exist in the account, the general rule applies to them as to any other tasks. 

Thus, if tasks from a folder live in multiple locations, please make sure to delete these tasks using the mass editing functionality prior to removing the project itself. To check if tasks have additional tags, you'll need to open the project in the List view and enable "Folder names" as demonstrated in the screenshot below:

This way, the tasks will be removed from other locations as well.
Let us know if you have any questions!
