[Status: Backburner ⏳] Assigning RACI roles

It would be great to be able to assign specific RACI designations and manage notifications and task assignment based on those roles when templating a process.

ie: Reponsible, Accountable = assigned, Consulted, Informed = subscribed

Right now there is only "assigned" - it would be good to be able assign who is subscribed to a task within a blueprint/template.

I like this idea. I think roles would also be helpful in templates. For example, instead of assigning a designer to every design task every time they setup a new project, the template would have the design role assigned to every design task. Then when the project is created the template would ask who the designer is and the template would auto-assign all tasks with the design role.

Agree this would be really useful. We currently assign multiple people to tasks, but this leads to overload on the To do list, and seems to reduce accountability. Would be useful to have a formal way to track the various roles in a task within wrike without everyone being "assigned".

Agree - there may be many tasks that I am "responsible" for, but other team members will be completing with guidance. 

This would be a helpful addition and reduce the "to do" list, with many items out of my direct control, but that I need to be aware of.

I am just starting a blueprint for a schedule and we have many tasks that many be assigned to one individual to complete ("responsible"), but many other people need to be "informed".  Rather than adding those people as assignees (misleading that they are also supposed to do the work), it would be nice to have a RACI matrix where I could list (or tag) others so that they stay in the loop.

This is a feature I would find really useful too- even more granularity for team members to see quickly what their level of interaction with a given task is! Yes please!

How do I create a RACI chart for a project in Wrike? Is there a way to import a template? No clear to me.

Hi Grace Scire, welcome to the forums 👋

I'd suggest taking a look at one of our templates called Project RACI. You can read how to use the template in this post, and please let me know if you have any questions 🙂

Hey folks! Our team doesn't have direct plans to introduce RACI at the moment, but we currently provide a RACI template where these roles are set up with custom fields. Please check out more info about this template here 🙂 I hope this helps!
