In addition to manually creating tasks, we've set up a request form for certain types of requests that we encourage requestors to fill out. Unfortunately, when they submit a form, the Author is labeled as "Wrike Bot," which keeps the resulting task from appearing in their "Created by me" folder. Ultimately this makes it difficult for them to track all the tasks they've opened from a request form.
Is there a solution or a workaround to this? I've added a dropdown to identify the "Requestor" on the form but that doesn't do much good until they are able to find the task. I could try mapping that Requestor value to a custom field but that doesn't help much either as most requestors will have a combination of tasks they've created manually and tasks created via the request form (so the former wouldn't have that custom field auto-populated). The only silver lining so far is we route the tasks generated by specific request forms to specific folders, but that only helps so much as a report on the folder would show tasks from multiple requestors in the same folder.
The main goal is to be able to have one folder that a requestor can view to see all tasks they've created both manually and via request form. I'm sure there's something I'm missing - any ideas or insight is appreciated!
