Creating custom tags

If there was a way to create project tags that we could then pull reports from, that would be great. For example, we have noticed that we have several projects that we onboard and then they fall through for various reasons before we start working on them. We would like to be able to add a tag (like the color coding option) that could say "dropped" or something like that and then we could pull a report of all projects that   have that tag so then we could show upper management how many projects fall through in which areas based on outside factors.

We would like this feature as well. Its a great way to add an additional level of filtering/reporting based on commonalities between projects/folders/tasks. I know TeamWork has this feature and I liked it when I used that product.

Custom tags so we can designate the team the project belongs to.

Wrike needs tags and colors for cards and for assignees. This is base-level Toyota Production System/Kanban basics, and would be a major improvement to the agility or flexibiltiy of visual task managment. Please get this put into practice.

REALLY GOOD NEWS ON TAGs!!

I'll stop yelling. I'm just so happy.

Do this: 

Create a folder called Tags

Create a folder inside this folder for each tag you want, name it anything you like, and select a color for that tag-folder.

Add these "tags" (that are actually folders) to any task you want. They show up on the face of each task card on Board view. You can even add multiple "tags." This is seriously liberating. A major victory for TPS and Kanban style visual management. 

All props go to @derekblackham my Wrike Deployment asset. And what an asset he has been!

Thanks @Michael Combest for a work around. I'd love to see the ability to run a report based on a certain tag as a native feature in Wrike. Seems like we work to hard to make the system work for us.

Another workaround for this is to create a custom field. Navigate to the space, on the top right next to the settings widget, click the ... 3 dot menu and go to "manage custom fields." Add a new field and label it "Tags" and then set it as "Single Select" from there you can create a drop down list of tag options that will show up under the fields tab above the bio/description box under any task. You can then pull a report and select Tags under the settings tab. You will be able to filter by Tag in the report.
