[Status: Not planned] Recurrent Parent + Subtasks

When making a recurrent task, I also need the subtasks of that parent task to be recurrent.

My workaround in the end was to use a new space and use projects and tasks such that the only thing I need repeating is tasks and not subtasks. It worked for my purpose of providing recurring personal daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly routines. It took longer to set up than it would've otherwise, if subtasks could've been recurring, but in the end the result is pretty much the same and I'm happy enough with it.

I realize that there are many use-cases that won't be solved by re-thinking the hierarchy such that recurring tasks and always only tasks and not subtasks, but luckily for me in my case, I was able to make it work.

Like Gandalf Saxe, we also have restructured the hierarchy of our projects and typically sort things in such a way that folders are used more like a project and projects are used for portions of the larger project so that tasks can be recurring and typically require few subtasks to be used.

Has there been any update on this? There are several threads on this topic and I can't seem to find a solution?😭

Hi Laura,

The last update provided was that there is a technical barrier to the Wrike team completing this request. I have kind of given up on it happening. I have to manually create tasks with subtasks every month because I can't get them to auto-recur.

Warm regards,

Ginger

Yes, it has been a painful 3 years waiting for this but I think this thread is much older haha! We spend hours creating tasks that we need to recurr and do them year by year. Definitely a time-waster, wish this was a priority. =(

How many people need to request this feature in order for it to be added as a new feature? Cansu

This week I had a coworker get excited when she discovered the recurring task feature thinking we could use it for a fortnightly team task and I had to break her heart that we can't utilize it because it doesn't copy the subtasks with it. 😔

The way it's currently set up makes the feature worthless/unusable for our team. So we use a Blueprint and a calendar reminder to manually create it.
