Adding Vacation Dates to Work Schedule

My assistant accidentally added incorrect vacation dates to her work schedule. Needless to say, it rescheduled her tasks, a lot of them, since she put in 3 weeks. I suggest an option to confirm the dates before they are added to the calendar. She would have caught them if she was required to review before they post.

I second this, Marjorie! This is especially a problem when a task HAS to be done in a certain time frame. If you can't do it because you won't be there, you might want to make it earlier instead of later, or reassign it to someone else who can help.

It would be great if when you add the vacation, you had an option for all of the tasks scheduled for that time period to pop up one by one. For each one, you could decide if you want to reschedule or reassign.

We've resorted to manually doing this for all of our tasks in that period BEFORE adding the vacation, so this would be really useful for us.

hello, I am having this same issue. I want to be able to track any tasks which were automatically rescheduled. Typically the PTO is scheduled after tasks are already entered so there is no way for me to definitively tell the implications when PTO is the source of the task rescheduling.

WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRACK THIS AND CHOOSE. Our organization manages functions for 60+ entities so there is no way for me to check and I do not want to miss deadlines.

I agree that this is a problem, but I would like to propose a slightly different solution. It would be ideal for us if when people enter their time off, it does NOT move any tasks that person is assigned to. Rather, Wrike would flag those tasks where there is a conflict so that someone (typically it would be a manager or PM for us, rather than the person assigned the task) can see them (via a report, dashboard, and/or notification) and decide whether to move or reassign them. 

Here is another Product Feedback post similar to this one: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360019688334-Prevent-Automatic-Rescheduling-of-Tasks-When-Using-the-Work-Scheduling-Feature?page=1#community_comment_360005335554
