[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Excel Import to Update Tasks

We are using Wrike to create a marketing calendar, and it would be ENORMOUSLY helpful to use the Excel import function to update Budget, End Dates, Descriptions, and other custom columns at the Task level without overwriting existing attachments or conversation.

This way we could take reporting from agencies who handle our ad updates, hide columns and copy to a clean sheet, then import to keep our Wrike calendars up to date in minutes, instead of manually changing fields one by one.

I have to agree with Amanda (above) - this has been the biggest annoyance when implementing a new account and migrating multiple projects

Agree - need to update task status by excel import (update) file.

Tasks should be modified by an update import. (and in this way create new tasks if not available).

Or is there any other solution for mass updates from xls files ?

Hi Lisa, I was reading through the blog since 2017 and see you guys still don't have this valuable option to decide to import to update or create new, while this is very disappointing (at least after 4 yrs of no indication this is needed with 174 upvotes) I do like the option to copy paste directly, that way I can still do an update quickly following the same format of tasks.

Is there a list of ideas and statuses that we can follow as oppose to try to find topics by ourselves? For example few weeks ago I place an upvote for adding calendars into iOS as this is only available for Android. I would like to see a list of ideas and things to understand where Wrike is going and see what's new and available. My company just joined and would like to take advantage as much we can.

Hi Federico Grajeda, welcome to the Community and to Wrike!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and feedback. To share some detail on the status, for now, the team is focused on other priorities, so, unfortunately, there is no scope to research this suggestion at the moment. As outlined in this Community post, the Product team looks at a wide range of data, user feedback, and Community suggestions/votes to determine what next to work on. The team always aims to focus on implementing the functionality that will have the widest impact and benefit for the most users, and it's for this reason, that we simply can't implement all of the suggestions we receive via our various feedback channels.  

That being said, the team is aware of the suggestion and they do understand this is a highly sought-after functionality among some of our customers. We'll be sure to let you know if anything changes here.

The best way to filter and find Product Feedback requests is to search by keywords and then click on the Product Feedback forum to filter down to suggestions. 

You can also find a list of 2021 Community Suggestions - a list of all requests shared by Community members and now being researched or launched by the team. Please let me know if you have any questions🙋🏻‍♀️

Goodmorning, 

 

What is the status of this feature? its ongoing sinds 2017, we are now 5 years later and my company also makes a lot of changes, due to the issue that the import only creates new tasks instead of updating the changed fields we have a lot of time loss and is not efficient. Is this already on the road map or already deployed?

 

Thanks
