This seems like a very simple request, but is apparently not something that Wrike is able to do.
When I assign a task from one of my projects to a colleague, they are not automatically able to see the name of the project to which the task belongs. In my own workspace, the project name automatically appears as a "tag" next to each task (in My To-do view) and under the task name in window view, but in my colleagues' workspace they can only see the task name and not the project title.
Ideally I think that tasks assigned to others should also include the Project title by default (or at least the option to toggle this on and off).
I've spoken to the Wrike helpdesk about this and apparently their workaround is to either include more detailed task names, which outline the project title within them (this is extremely annoying for projects which have up to 300 tasks, and also makes the task names too long. This also isn't useful when using blueprints, as we would need to manually change the tasknames for each different blueprint to match the different project title); or their other workaround is to share the whole project with the assignee, which is also not a useful workaround for us, when we have casual staff who really only need to see their own tasks and don't need to be bogged down with the whole project task list.
I'm quite frustrated that very simple things like this aren't automatic features within Wrike. I feel that for the price we pay for the system, we should have better solutions and not these clunky workarounds.
