[Status: Launched! ๐Ÿš€] Calendar view of task assignments

I'd like to be able to view all projects and all team members assigned to tasks with a timeline in a calendar view that could be filtered by person or project as needed. ย It would help with assignment of resources to new projects as they arise and will help estimate timelines for completion if all team members are booked solid.

Calendar view has been one of the most frequently requested features from my team. The majority of the team has very little experience with PM tools, and they just want a view of their tasks and/or projects that's simple and familiar.ย 

One of the differentiators for Wrike is that it offers several different ways to look at your work, so that anyone can find the view that works for them; calendar view is a key missing piece.

Our team would benefit greatly from a calendar view as well.ย  Is there any talk of this coming down the pike?

Hi everyone, thanks for continuing to comment! @Stacey, it's something our Product Managers have been discussing a lot recently. I don't have anything I can share at the moment, but conversations are definitely happening.

I'd like to add my support to this feature (and keep the thread active). It would be a huge benefit to have a standard calendar view (instead of a side extension as someone commented).

Going to chime in once again as I had a team member new to wrike ask where the calendar was yesterday. Sadly, I had to explain that there was no native calendar view and she would have to instead use the timeline. For those who don't regularly use GANTT charts, the timeline is much more overwhelming than a traditional monthly calendar view.

Wrike team - thanks for hearing us out. Any update on this?ย Surely 60+ votes is at least something?ย

A traditional calendar view in Wrike would be really nice!

A traditional calendar layout would be a powerfulย tool for me and my fellow Wrike Champions.

One more vote for calendar layout!

I have potentially 30-60 more regular users who would ditch asana and come to Wrike as soon as this happens. please make this happen soon!

I'll add to the crowd here and say that my projects specifically REQUIRE calendar view for those that will be utilizing the outline developed therein.ย  PLEASE make this a reality!

Calendar view is an absolute must. I really love Wrike but this is a major feature that is missing!ย

Asย @lauren says, I think tooย a view of tasks due dates would be really helpful and you could switch from seeing individual tasks to project tasks.

A classic calendar view can be very helpful and specially on mobile devices where gantt view is not easy to read.

Thank you.

+1!!! We need a traditional calendar view for a proper editorial calendar. We have also tried both the icalย integrationย (doesn't work for us as it shows the folder names before the task names and thus can't be read clearly) and tried the google cal link (which means a lot of manual work for task creation, no direct link betweenย event and the task, and doesn't work for multiple users) Pros and cons to both but neither solve the problem completely.ย 

A simple traditional calendar view (something clean like google cal) would solve everything and keep us all working in Wrike.ย 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE implement

Absolutely it would be a great improvement,

Take a look how it's done in Asana - one of the best calendar view experience in Task Management Systems

Along with the calendar view of assignments - It would be great if we could use Wrike for our editorial/marketing calendar. We are using Wrike to assign tasks but if we could have our marketing calendar in the same system it would make for a all in one solution.

Loving the momentum on this post! I came from Asana myself and we all miss the calendar view with drag and drop functionality. I've polled my team and they've all hit the +1 button. I encourage all commenters to do the same! We've gained a lot of votes as of late. ๐Ÿ˜€

+1 we have spent an entire week to figure this out and finally go to this post.ย 

It's now becoming the requirement for us to use calendar view. Can you please have this up already?ย 

You are getting free feedback regarding product feature, which companies pays a lot of money to improve the experience.

I hope you will take this very seriously.

Thanks,

Hi everyone, I'm loving the momentum here too! It's fantastic to see so much engagement here, and we've been showing all of these comments to our Product Teamย ๐Ÿ™Œย  I just wanted to let you know that we're having lots of conversations around this,ย and while we're not ready to share any plans at the moment, your comments here do help. We'll make sure to share updates whenever we have any!

@anastasia I've worked with Wrike at a previous companyย in the Fall of 2016 and brought up the lack of Calendar view during those Account Management discussions. I'm at a new company now and incredibly disheartened to see that a year later this has STILL NOT been implemented. I know there has been a lot of discussion around this feature but it doesn't seem like any progress has been made.

Wrike is a great PM tool and I'm working to get my team (30 users) and potential company (400+) on board with Wrike, however this is a feature everyone is looking to see before moving over. Is this even on the roadmap for 2018?ย 

Also,ย as @jennifer mentioned -ย It would beย GREAT if we could use Wrike for our editorial/marketing calendar.ย I think the end goal for everyone is to get our teams working in one system.

+1 vetting this tool currently, and this is kind of a deal breaker. At a minimum, I should be able to create a report with select projects and view that report as a calendar. All of the necessary data points are there. This would solve for the need for a "publishing schedule" if the report is exported by project end date.ย

I second, third, and one million this request Please please please add a standard "calendar" view along with your other views - List, Board, Table, Timeline, Steam, etc.!I was very surprised to learn this feature did not already exist. A traditional Monthly Calendar view with drag and drop capabilities (similar to how you can drag and drop things on the timeline) view would be so very helpful. We just switched from Asana and this is one of the major features that I miss. I do not want "calendar sync", I just want a Calendar view option with the rest. Much needed!!

+1 We are in the trial version right now and it is the only thing that I think would hold us back from this program.ย  It has everything else.ย  People use the calendar function on other tools and this was number one on why they wouldn't use it.ย  I really want to use Wrike full time, but this option (or lack there of) is holding us back.

I've upvoted and will reiterate - from my perspective as a CMO - I need to see when various marketing activities are scheduled in one place. We run our marketing team on Wrike - but other marketing project management solutions have a calendar.

Even just viewing Milestones on the GaNNT chart is clumsy when you look across an entire operation. We need a way to view only the live campaigns/events/programs/releases in a calendar to coordinate our efforts.ย

If a calendar view is in the works, throw us a bone and let us know itโ€™s being developed. With the amount of features Wrike contains, I still canโ€™t believe this wasnโ€™t one of the first โ€œviewsโ€ that was developed... its how the world works... one day, week, month at a time...

In planning out our Spring 2018 Marketing plans for the new year, I'm really struggling to visualize what we have in wrike and where there are gaps. A traditional monthly calendar view that is drag and drop would help tremendously! We have four separate brands to keep track of and so the google calendar integration is just more trouble than it's worth especially for making changes on the fly.

It has been a month since we've received any update on this. Could you update this thread? This is something my team is needing desperately.ย

This is a huge roadblock for my team. I commented on this months ago, and we've been waiting for some kind ofย response on it. We're currently using additional software just to manage our Marketing calendar, which is crazy considering we're paying for Wrike and should be able to do it all in one place. Can you please prioritize this feature?

Hi everyone, happy to share what I can. We've had multiple discussions with the Product Team around this and the idea has had a lot of positive traction internally recently. That's all I can say for now, but we're reading every comment and will keep you updated.ย

I also agree that this would be ideal and also a way to set up time of day that incorporates into a calendar view within Wrike.ย 

I hope that this feature would be available soon! That would definitely make this program infinitely more user friendly. Thanks!ย
