[From Wrike] The New Wrike Experience - Update ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Mostrada Destacada

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹ 

As you may know, our Product Team has been continuing to improve the New Wrike Experience based on the amazing feedback from you. A huge thank you to everyone who is continuing to test it and share feedback with us, it helps us tremendously when planning future enhancements!

Weโ€™re happy to introduce the latest improvements based on the feedback our team received from you.

Whatโ€™s new

 

Navigation

  • You can open the Launchpad from any place in your workspace. Click the new icon, next to โ€œWrike Assistantโ€, and youโ€™ll have access to Smart Folders, tools, and much more!

  • Navigation between spaces just got easier. While working in any space in your account, click the โ€œShow spacesโ€ button in the bottom left corner of your workspace and select the needed space from the list.

 

Introducing Custom Views 

Views work in the same way as before but now with more options. When you navigate between projects and other views, all the view settings are saved per user.

Custom (persistent) views allow you to save view configuration for everyone in your account. Custom views can also be renamed. Currently, it is possible to create saved List, Board, and Table views.

 

Please note that the ability to create/edit custom views depends on the usersโ€™ access role. By default, users with the Full access role can create Custom views.

 

Workspace themes

Workspace themes are now available in the New Wrike Experience:

 

To try out the updated New Experience, please enable it in Wrike Labs. You only need to enable the "New Experience" there, that includes My Home, custom views, and tools in spaces. If you have the New Experience enabled since it was first introduced, you will see the updated version starting today. 

Weโ€™re very excited to hear what you think, please let us know your feedback in the comments below ๐Ÿ‘‡

YES! I admit that I've only skimmed here, but this looks like such a great update already. Looking forward to test driving this one and providing more coherent feedback, but wanted to pop in first and just say thank you so much for hearing us. This looks awesome, very excited. Great note to end a week on ๐Ÿ™Œ

I am glad to see the revisions released. I will try out the updates and see how close we are getting to a more efficient workflow. Looking forward to hearing others' feedback and providing my own to the latest updates.

The new Launchpad Icon!  ๐Ÿ’‹ Perfect! One less click to go where I want to go!

I love it!!! My one big 'issue' with the previous version was getting quickly between spaces, or even tagging a task with a folder from another Space and having to remember the exact folder name. ALL BETTER!!!

I love the new icons next to folders/projects that show whether they are a folder or a project, and they are now colored! I use color coding a lot in Wrike, this is a big Plus!!

I've not tried the custom views yet, will do that soon. 

One tiny 'issue' I have now, is that when you are in a Space, and you have selected a folder or project, or even a task, you can't tell what the name of the Space is.  It's not at the top anymore. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

I just want to say that I love how Wrike listens ๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ‘‚ to our feedback and continues to make adjustments to the User Interface! Bravo!!!  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜

Thank you!

Couple of tiny things from an afternoon of powering through:

Bugs

  • For themes, if thereโ€™s an image overlap (like the bats for Halloween or Flowers) the image doesnโ€™t show in the workspace view
  • The spaces on the home screen are still coming up in an order other than alphabetical by default and then we need to move them around after updates. Can the default be alphabetical?
  • Looks like the ability to filter out completed or canceled projects on the left-hand nav bar has defaulted to showing all projects regardless of status. Can that option be added back in?

Amazing

  • Having the folders come up on the right-hand side of the โ€™Show Spacesโ€™ feature rather than having them dropdown is the clarity and cleanliness I never knew I needed.
  • Copy permalink from the left-hand nav bar! I feel like this is new and it is great.
  • Blueprints as a quick link at the top is a great, great add

Changes

  • For the main screen of the spaces, I think Home makes sense, but having a Home and My Home space with similar icons is a little confusing. I could see new users getting tripped up by that. โ€˜To view the space, select the โ€˜Homeโ€™ iconโ€™ and then they click on the โ€˜My Homeโ€™ icon instead. Perhaps another name like โ€˜Space Homeโ€™ or โ€˜Space Baseโ€™ or โ€˜Space Overviewโ€™ or something much better than that.
  • Can we have the โ€˜Show Spacesโ€™ button in the Inbox view, too? Even if itโ€™s just the icon on a slimmed-down, padded lefthand column.
  • In a sub-task through the Inbox view, if you click on the name of the task above the sub-task (the small greyed out text that hyperlinks to the task above the header-styled text of the sub-task name) it shows the task as a pop-up screen rather than redirecting you to the project in the workspace view. Any chance it can do the latter like clicking on the folder tag below the sub-task name does?
  • Can we link existing dashboards and reports as a tool for spaces? I know you can duplicate and itโ€™ll auto-prompt, but would appreciate the ability without duplicating/re-sharing/deleting.

Will share more as I continue using, but to reiterate what others have said above that this is great. Thank you so much, looking forward to this!

Marvelous! Thank you! It is a great step forward! I can really support what is already said above.

 

I love in particular:

- Wider possible space for navigation bar

- Steadily visible icons to show different types of elements

- "Show spaces" / "Hide Spaces"

 

Room for further improvement:

- The hide navigation ("<") should stay visible like the show navigation (">") does

- Can we please set the color of the a folder/Project via API? This would open up a huge usage opportunity for the colors.

- What we still miss is the opportunity to have an own color scheme and particularly make this the default for all users (especially newly created users). We'd like to roll out our business application with "our" default color for it. Which should be a warmer one than the majority of the regular ones. (Light Yellow).

Love the updates and continued support for when the community comes together and raises a question or a point... this is awesome!!!

One thing I wished we had was a way to 'pin' specific things to the top outside of the home page. I love the home button and inbox but to get to my reports I need to go to home, hit reports and go from there and do it all over again to get to Stream and/or dashboards? I am our team's Account Manager so I live more on the outskirts of projects. Is there any thought to incorporating a 'favorites' bar? Let us have a few things at the top that we are constantly bouncing in and out of? 

 

I have other suggestions too but I will put those in their respective spots ;) 

Keep up the great work, Wrike has been a lifesaver over the years.... even during furlough it went to show the team that they can carry on if I am not there.

You can no longer filter out completed or canceled projects on the left-hand navigation bar.

That was somewhat essential. Can that option be added back in or is there a workaround other than setting up a dashboard for the project folder?

Hey,

Cudos!

Loving the new experience, it reduces the time to get to a specific task by a large margin, i also like to clean look and the home page is my new favorite

Shameless feature requests:

Just a quick feature request, I currently use the Chrome extension for this, but since you now have the home page, you might as well add it there. A quick low level 'To Do Today list' configure a folder where these tasks reside and be able to quickly add or remove them just like the chrome extension does.

Another one, with the 'play' button to record time, can you give a reminder pop up or such if you are past a thresshold of time? in example, if you surpass 8hrs in active time recording, a pop-up 'hey are you still working on this?' 

Bugs / or not yet migrated feature from the old experience:

Other than that, since the real 'archiving' solution isn't implemented yet, please please bring back the 'Canceled' and 'Completed' projects filter in the tree menu.

Finally

I love the new custom views but when trying to fiddle with them, I found a feature gap, you have added billable / non-billable on project level, sadly there is no way to filter on this in the table view (you can now filter on project state but no on billing type

Keep up that great work!

Hello again, everyone! We continue to pass on your feedback, thanks a lot for sharing!

Hilary Koss 

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Regarding the themes, so far the new experience doesn't support images within themes. Does it seem a big problem for you?

Spaces order: Have you discovered that you can switch the ordering using the menu under "..." at the right of the header of the Spaces section? Once you switched it, Spaces are always sorted alphabetically.

The ability to filter out completed or canceled projects on the left-hand nav bar is coming back soon!

The team will consider adding the โ€˜Show Spacesโ€™ button in the Inbox when reworking the Inbox.

For dashboards: use "Move" in the menu under "..." in the top right corner. Unfortunately, reports could not be tools in Spaces so far. The team is working on it.

Thank you very much for your ideas! 

Jason Pontius

We are glad that you like the update and we look forward to your feedback as you test the new updates made to the experience!

1Marjorie Downey

We are happy to hear that you like the quick navigation between spaces and the new folder tree! 

Regarding your issue, this behavior is definitely not by design, the path should be there. Does this problem persist?

Thank you very much for your kind words!

Andreas Wastl

Thanks so much for your feedback and ideas, the team will consider them for the future updates!

Elizabeth Z

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! Does the "Launchpad" in the top right corner help to quickly navigate to reports, Stream, and other places?

Robyn Jackson

Happy to hear you are like the update! Thank you for the feedback!

Kirstin Armistead

Thanks so much for reaching out with your feedback! This feature is coming back soon.

Peter Vanwetswinkel

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your feedback and ideas! Iโ€™ve passed them on to the team and Iโ€™ll get back to you as soon as possible!

Hey Lisa! Just now seeing your comments because I'm an inbox disaster and missed the email:

Regarding the themes, so far the new experience doesn't support images within themes. Does it seem a big problem for you?
Not really. I mean I like the bats and the flowers but it's not a 'big' problem in the sense that it actually matters ๐Ÿ˜œ

Spaces order: Have you discovered that you can switch the ordering using the menu under "..." at the right of the header of the Spaces section? Once you switched it, Spaces are always sorted alphabetically.
I did not discover that! It only appears when you hover over the spaces header. Any chance it can be omnipresent? 

The ability to filter out completed or canceled projects on the left-hand nav bar is coming back soon!
It's back! thank you!

The team will consider adding the โ€˜Show Spacesโ€™ button in the Inbox when reworking the Inbox.
Thanks!

For dashboards: use "Move" in the menu under "..." in the top right corner. Unfortunately, reports could not be tools in Spaces so far. The team is working on it.
Awesome, thank you very much!

I did have a new request for this if we're still discussing features: in the launchpad, could we have access to our pinned projects and folders? Perhaps in the bottom of the launchpad?

Peter Vanwetswinkel Sorry for the late reply! The team's happy to hear that you enjoy the new experience! Regarding a To-Do list on the Home page, the team is thinking about evolving this page as a central point to manage all your personal work. Thank you for your idea! Your suggestion about the reminder for the time tracker sounds really interesting, as well as your comment about filtering by billing type. We'll pass it to the team who are developing that part. We are happy to confirm that the filters "All/Only active" are now available in the folder tree. Thank you so much!

Hilary Koss, thank you for your detailed replies! Could you please clarify your idea about the launchpad? The difference is that your pinned projects and folders belong to you as a user, while items on the launchpad are configured per Space (every Space may have a launchpad). So, when you open a launchpad in a particular Space, do you expect to see all your pinned items there, including items from other Spaces? Thank you!
