Prompt notification or error when assigning a task, when the assignee is not available/on vacation

I can see that when a task is created, and an assignee is selected before the due date is assigned, it will not allow you to assign the due date when they are unavailable. However, if you assign the due date first, then select the assignee, it automatically changes the due date to the next day that they are available. There is no prompt, notification, alert of this change - it simply changes the due date. This can pose a huge issue if the due date originally assigned is the hard, non negotiable deadline.

 

It would be great if there could be an alert (as simply as red text or something) indicated that this due date has changed) for those who are not very detail oriented, or simply a project manager who is assigning tasks within a project based on the scope of the job.

I also need this feature so that another person can be assigned to the task while the original assigned person is sick or on leave.

I agree, Wrike needs a vacation notification or at least a backup assignee to whom all messages and assignments can be forwarded when someone is on vacation.

At the very least - is there a way to blast email all users that you'll be on vacation?
