Unlock the baked-in prioritization of tasks and projects

As CEO of an e-commerce company I have tasks and projects alike that requires an internal prioritization order. You might say a true backlog on company level.

The baked-in sorting of task and projects has little to no value other than pleasing my OCD and general prettiness-factor.

Would it be possible to have no restrictions on sort order regardless of space project or task?

AGILE Project Prioritization...

 

YES - our team really enjoys the abilities that come with making a project and actual "project" in WRIKE, but I am UNABLE TO PRIORITIZE our large backlog via drag and drop if I make all of my projects WRIKE projects. 

 

If we could drag and drop PROJECTS as we can tasks, that would resolve most of my headaches with WRIKE!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Thanks a lot for your feedback and gifs here, I don't think I've ever seen so many of them on one thread on our Community 😄

Hope you don't mind if I ask some additional info here - do I understand correctly that you're talking about dragging and dropping projects in the List View? Do you need this to be able to have a clear view of the projects according to their priority? Because it's so, one way to achieve this would be to create folders like "Priority: High", "Priority: Medium" and "Priority: Low", apply colours to them (for example, red, yellow and green) and tag your projects with those folders. Could you please let me know if this approach could help? Thanks!

Hi Lisa,

 

Thank you for reaching back out to us! As you can see, we're actually pretty thrilled to get this functionality. 

 

To answer your question, unfortunately, the project ranking we need has to operate exactly as tasks do on the table view (and list view). We need to be able to DRAG AND DROP projects in order of priority and not by custom fields of folders, as this is the most proper way to sort through the backlog. 

 

In other words, I should be able to open up my backlog and see (from top to bottom) all projects in the backlog from top to bottom. 

 

I am more than happy to jump on a call with you to show you our request and walk you through the business need. 

 

Thank you for your time!

Hey Jeff Gruettert, thank you for sharing this use case! It really helps the Product team when are suggesting threads like this. 

I don't have an update for you at the moment, but as soon as I do, I'll be sure to update this thread 😊

Has there been any movement on this idea?  I, too, would love to see this implemented.

Hi Tina Mason, welcome to the Community!

Apologies for the late reply here! I've checked with the team, and they have plans to research sorting by priority in 2021. I'll let you know once I have more info on this.
