Changing the "Author" of a project

    Hi Josh, what if you assign yourself as a project owner, or "follow" the project? (Similarly, you could also assign yourself to tasks or follow specific ones within that project, but it sounds like you'd prefer the project-level settings.) From there, you could pull projects you own into a dashboard widget (vs. projects you created, i.e. an author widget). From an authoring perspective, we actually find it useful to see who originally created a task/project and what his or her original content was. Hope that's helpful!

    I agree with Josh and the solution posed by Caroline doesn't help our particular situation.  We have a number of projects that were imported from another system.  Because I did the import, it shows that I am the author and therefore not showing up correctly in various dashboards.

    Agreed with Josh and Nancy. I tend to create projects for my team. When I do, all the tasks have me as the author. This makes it challenging for our user based dashboard as the custom unassigned widget we built looks for unassigned tasks the user created. Since I'm the author and it is really their project, the widget misses tasks I would like them to see. The only workaround is to tag each user's projects to a folder specifically for their projects, and adjust the widget to look specifically for unassigned tasks in that folder. Problem is that creates more work to tag projects, and each user has to create their own dashboard vs using our standard user based dash. Really hope the ability to change author is implemented soon. Wrike could log any change automatically to comments to preserve history.

    I also have been importing projects for my team, so I get all the updates they make since I was the original author.  I am now attempting to unfollow whenever I receive updates but it sure would be nice to change them to the author of their projects so the proper people are receiving updates without extra workarounds. 😊

    There definitely seems that there should be a better way. As some create the projects for others, there are also those that leave a company and the project needs to be reassigned to a new owner or Author.  @Lisa, the link you provided states the page does not exist.

    @Debbie Hi, happy to see you on the Community 🙂

    Are you referring to the link in my signature? It should work as long as you're signed in into Wrike. If you are, please try using another browser or incognito window - if the link works there, it means you might need to clear the cache in your usual browser. If that's not the case and the link doesn't open at all, please let me know and I'll investigate further.

    this would be very useful, or add another field 'Owner' or 'Primary Stake Holder' that we can assign someone to.

    My team regularly creates tasks and project on behalf of other users and this restriction makes it difficult to report on correctly and in some cases the original Owner gets forgotten.

    I also agree it would be nice to be able to change the author.

    In my case, I have a weekly report that is sent to the team. We have multiple project owners, but the I want the people who create the projects to be responsible for them. If I create a project for someone I'm not the one responsible. I'd like as the admin the ability to create the project, but then change the author to someone else.

    Totally agree regarding being able to change the author.

    For expediency sake, I sometimes enter projects for others and then reassign them.  The system holds that I am the author when what I really need to see is who actually is assigned and responsible.
