limit the assignees in a particular space

Our organisation has a lot of users but in our team there's around 20 people. Is there a way to restrict the assignee field such that I can only select users from my team.

At the moment assignee field offers all users across my organisation which is not ideal.

Hey Saad Fahim!

There are several options for how you can limit who is assigned to each space;

  1. You can assign the users from your team to a Project or Space and then tag them in the comments stream with the phrase "@followers". This will give an Inbox notification to only those who are following these items.
  2. The admin of your Wrike account could create a User Group of the 20 people in your team. You could then easily assign them to any Project, Folder, Task or Space.
  3. If your team are all Regular Users, you could mention "@MyTeam" and they will all be notified. This will notify all Regular Users across the account though, so this may not work for you.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions let me know 😊

Hey Hugh 

Thanks for the response. This is helpful.

When I start typing in the assignee field to pick I have the option to select anyone from my organisation. That's not ideal. Is there a way that list can be limited to just my team?

Hi Saad Fahim, thank you for the kind words!

This isn't currently possible in Wrike at the moment, but this is a great suggestion. If you'd like, I can move this thread into the Product Feedback forum so that other Community members can vote on it and it will be passed on to our Product team?

Let me know what you think 😊

Hi Saad Fahim

if you setup a user group and type that in the assignee field only the people from that user group will be in the selection. For example: I'm heading the Online Marketing team and have setup three sub teams: Social Media (8 people), Content (7 people) and Performance (2 people). Typing in "Content" in the Assignee field makes it way easier for me to put in someonefrom my team. :) ..and the same holds true for other teams as well. 

Thanks again @... for mentioning the user groups. 

 

Cheers
