    I prefix my tasks within projects and therefore continue to have a reference.ย  See pic below.ย  This means for us that we know which project the task is from.ย ย

    Thanks Glyn โ€” our problem unfortunately is not solved just by naming conventions. We have so many clients and so many separate jobs under those clients, that a naming convention to encapsulate all of that without getting incredibly hard to decipher is impossible. And using our agency's job-number format (XXX-####) is great if you know what the job is, but that adds a level of duplicated manual editing that should really just fall under the organizational hierarchy.

    The fact for us remains โ€” and this goes way beyond just shared tasks as I've pointed out above โ€” that Wrike is not using the inherent organization that they've pushed us to use (spaces, projects, folders) to properly label, sort and/or filter tasks and conversations without hyper-customized modules in dashboards or manually-entered information (like prefixes). It takes away the automation and usefulness of that top-down hierarchy โ€” something that is seen in much cheaper and feature-limited systems like Asana and Basecamp.

    I'm seeing the same deficiency being noted in several other threads on this forum. Glyn's solution works, but isn't practical at scale. It should be something inherent in wrike's UX, and not something that anyone needs to fudge a workaround for. Unfortunately, it appears that problems need 60 upvotes to get flagged for their development team, and that seems to be a pretty high bar to achieve.ย
