Selective sharing at task level

Is there a way to enable selective sharing at task level? At the moment, to privatize a task, I have to create a subfolder or subproject within a project to privatize certain tasks. It would be awesome if we do not have to create any unnecessary layers just to keep one task confidential.

Hi Susan Angustia,

You can selectively share a task with additional users that wouldn't have access to the task based on folder/project permissions, but it's not currently possible (as far as I can tell) to restrict access to a single task within an existing project/folder to a more limited audience. In other words, anyone with access to the project/folder where the task exists will be able to see that task.

The only option I see currently is what you've already noted... create a subfolder or subproject with more limited permissions, and move the task to that subfolder/subproject.

This sounds like a good request for the Product Feedback section, to request more granular permissions at the task level, so other Wrike users can vote on this feature request.

Yes, selective sharing at task level does not work. We create a sub-folder as author mentions, and set up selective sharing and omit everyone except those that need to see the task information in that folder. This is a workaround for us to keep marketing account managers from "adding-on" to a project after it has been completed, or to continue commenting on a completed task. We like our file locations and such to be the last thing in the thread.

Wrike being a Collaboration tool, I would think they would want to leave the system as is. many Wrike PMs may not need the ability that a few of us do! I am fine with the sub-folder. We actually make it part of our blueprint, so it gets added automatically upon proejct request, then I manually setup Selective Sharing for the few that need to be on the task. Other than the two of us that manage projects, all others are set to read-only. It is a bit of extra work, but definitely worth it.
