๐ŸžReleases- Project sync, board view, and squashed bugs (03/23/20)

Feature Updates

Project Syncs Add-On Released

Our new Project Syncs add-on is now available! With this add-on, you can integrate with Jira, Bitbucket, GitLab, and GitHub.

Board View Improvements

You won't be "board" checking out these improvements! Here's what you can look forward to in Board view now:

  • Filters applied in Board view will be saved when you go to another view.
  • Board view now supports filtering by "Approvals", "Reviews", "Importance", "Effort", "Billable" and "Completed date".
  • Both the UI and the Custom Fields filter has been improved.
  • Filter presets are now available from the toolbar.
  • The option to "Show tasks from subfolders" and "Show cover images" are now under the three-dot menu button.

Onboarding Templates

When you choose a template for your new Wrike account after registration, it will now automatically be given a name, current dates, and be added to your Personal Space. We've got you covered.

Fixes

Login in MS Teams Desktop Client

Sometimes, when you tried to log in to Wrike from MS Teams' Desktop Client, you would receive an error and the login failed. This is now fixed.

Dates of Tasks/Projects Created from Request Forms

When you created a task/project from a request form where the dates were mapped to "Start Date" and "Due Date", these dates shifted a couple of days forward, because the "Working days only" box was checked. Now fixed!

Copy/Pasting from Excel

Sometimes you were unable to copy data from Excel for mac tables and paste it into a task description field in Wrike (a broken png file was added to task instead of a table with data). Fixed.

Yes, @... I would also like to hear about that, I thought the exact same Sarah Dungey as soon as I read about the release.  Glad to hear about the board improvements!

Hey Sarah Dungey and Al Sape! If you have used the Unito integrations before the Project Syncs was released, you will still have these permissions for free. This won't impact your usage of the integration for your account at all ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you for the positive feedback for Board view also, Al! It's been passed on to the Product team.

Hi @hugh, appreciate that response, and great to hear as I imagine Sarah was also pleased.  I never really set up my full Unito integration, but I imagine my account manager will be able to make sure that service stays free?

Hi Al Sape, it depends what you mean by full Unito integration. If you have set up Wrike for one Unito integration then you will still have permissions to use other ones for free ๐Ÿ˜Š

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

@Hugh, hey one more thing here just wanted to say that it one of my biggest asks in Wrike is to be able to show Custom Fields in some way on the Boards.  Since you guys basically use folders/projects for what a lot of other tools consider "tags" or "labels," Custom Fields can de facto serve the role that "tags/labels" would normally serve.  In my case, I'm using them to define task types like "bug" or "impediment."

It's great now that you can filter by those Custom Fields, but without actually seeing the Field on the card, it seems like this is an "empty" feature.  Kind of like sorting by date, ie "show only overdue tasks" and then not being able to see those dates.

There is a good post about this here https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002952109-custom-fields-Display-anywhere-everywhere and I think this is a good place to rekindle that request!

Thanks!

Hi Al Sape! As Hugh mentioned on the thread that you mention, you can now add custom field values to cards in the Board View. I just wanted to mention it here too so that other members could also see that announcement ๐Ÿ‘
