๐Ÿช€ Releases - Task ID's, comment streams, and rolling out (05/18/20)

Feature Updates

Task ID Update

A while ago, we removed the Task ID from the status bar in the Task view. We listened to your feedback, and now, it's back!

Comment Editor Upgrade

We've given our comments editor a makeover! Here's what you can look forward to:

  • Quickly change the text format by highlighting it and clicking the 'Aa' button.
  • Add emojis by typing ':' and the name of the emoji.

Any questions? We're free to comment!

Opening In New Windows In Desktop App

The 'Open in a new window' button is back in the task view in Desktop app.

Custom Fields Enhancements

We're beginning to roll out new custom fields in the Task view! You can read all about it in this announcement.


Custom Field Filters

When you tried to filter tasks by custom fields with values like โ€œ02.76โ€ or "04.03", Wrike would sometimes show zero relevant tasks. This happened even though some tasks actually had these values in custom fields. This is now fixed.

Editing Files

Occasionally, when you tried to edit files with extensions in uppercase letters (i.e., .PDF or .DOCX) in Wrike, the edit icon wouldn't show up. Also, if you tried to add a new version of such a file, but the latest version had a lowercase extension, there was an error that said the files are incompatible. Both of these issues have been fixed.

@..., I would be grateful if you could provide the rationale as to why you guys removed the custom ID in the first place. ย Seems like another example of poor planning. ย It wasn't that useful and as you can see here:


There is a big need for a more "useable" ID for one, and secondly having the ID actually visible where it counts - List and Board view.

And while those small changes to comments are OK, that is really just a cosmetic thing you guys have added there. ย I would love to see actual movement on some functionality of substance: ย 


That's very needed, and you guys don't even bother to adhere to your own rule and give it a status after 60 votes!!

Hey Al Sape, thank you for sharing your feedback here.
Task ID's were removed from the Task View while the view was being improved. This decision was based on analytics reviewed by the team during the research phase, but following feedback from our users, Task ID's were returned to the Task View. We really appreciate the insight and feedback shared in relation to this.
Apologies for the delay in providing a status on the thread you've mentioned. I've updated the threadย with a status now and provided some more information there.
If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out at any time.

Quickly formatting text and adding emojis a priority ?ย  What about quickly seeing the latest comment on top ?
