I've moved to Wrike from another tool I've used for 7 years and am really struggling to understand why anyone would want to give the responsibility for completing one task to multiple people?
"Drive the bus to France, Sara, Ally and John"
Who choses who drives first? Who's ultimately responsible? What if we can't decide between us? Why should Ally drive first?
This is what multiple task owners leads to. Confusion and a lack of accountability.
"Drive the bus to France, Ally. John and Sara can help" - Driving the bus has one owner with accountability and responsibility, regardless of wether John and Sara drive, it's now clear who needs to get the job done.
Multiple task owners makes zero sense, makes accountability confusing, and makes it unclear to all people assigned, who's ultimately responsible. Currently work gets left open because it's not clear "who's responsible" and it leads to the "someone else will do it" mentality. This defeats the objective of using Wrike to manage work effectively.
People need to be held accountable for getting things done. Multiple task owners kills that. Please give us an Admin setting to limit task owners to a single individual.
