    This would be a great feature. I set up collaborator accounts for each department, allowing those departments to assign their own tasks to whomever they like instead of the project creator picking or assuming one person will work on the task over another. To do this, I needed a number of different departmental emails created so we could have our departmental "bot" accounts. If it was possible to create virtual users, that would make things so much easier in the future.

    This would be great! Sometimes Executives own the tasks which I need to document....but I don't need their email bombarded from Wrike. These are tasks that would be followed up on in a different forum completely.ย ย

    Michelle brings up a GREAT point I didn't even think about. Most of our execs haven't ever logged into Wrike. Their assistants/directors do everything for them within Wrike, so sometimes we don't know the difference between an assistant or a VP working on tasks or project ownership. If the assistants could create an account assigned to the VP, it would make things much more organized and transparent within the executive branch.ย

    This would help us enormously! I too, need to set up virtual users so all tasks are assigned initially, but depending on the task it will get reassigned to a 'real' user at a later date. We need to ensure all tasks are not left unassigned and virtual users would be a good way of achieving this.

    Just like Michelle and co, I want to plan in Wrike with tasks againstย  generic assigned or virtual users identifying a particular external System Integrator in my plans.ย 

    ย 

    Not everyone should have access to Wrike.ย  This is the same process as in MS Project for Resource assignment.ย ย 

    How can we do that now?

    Honestly, no virtual resources support?? This is a deal breaker.
