Add Generic Job Roles to Workload Chart (Wrike for Prof Services)

Wrike provides the ability to assign tasks with effort to generic job roles. This functionality is useful when the work is known, but the assignee will be determined later. However, it's not possible to include this role in the workload chart which is where we review workload and confirm job assignments.

Please make it so I can add generic roles to the work load chart!

As a workaround, I was able to create a "dummy" collaborator account to achieve this functionality. However, it would be more seamless and useful to use the built-in job roles which I assume are there exactly for this kind of thing.

This sounds very similar to another request I want to direct attention to from way back in 2019.  This would be a big help for us to project our team's overall capacity and make smart decisions about what to prioritize and take on, even when we haven't assigned a particular team member to all of the tasks.

Hi Martin Cabana, thank you for your comment. At the moment, we don't have updates on this suggestion, I'm afraid that this idea is on the lower side of votes. You can check this article if you'd like to learn more about how we process feedback 👍

Also, please feel free to share more details about your use case so we can better understand it and potentially provide you with an alternative 🙂

Hello Greg Collins Nick Etten Martin Cabana, just to avoid any confusion, I'd like to point out that it is possible to view tasks assigned to job roles in the horizontal Backlog Box, as stated in our Help Center.

Would you please confirm if this is what you were looking for? Thank you!
