Importing tasks from Excel - Tagging on import

It would be nice to import tasks from excel and to add tasks not just to the folder you select to import to, but to tag additional folders on the import. It seems that the only thing that you can do is create new folders, not tag existing ones.

 

I thought we were onto something in this article but it stops short of truly tagging an existing folder.

The section "Include a task in several folders"

Any luck or update on this one. I'm looking at process of importing projects in for my clients. On a monthly basis. The project are the same name month+year.

It would be great to have on the import file an option to select whereas you would like to tag tasks to. Right now I run the import and then have to go into every parent task to cross tag them to the relevant parent folder. 

Would be ideal to have this as a feature on the import process.

Elaine Hi Elaine,

Why has the mass-cross-tagging feature been removed? I used Wrike at my previous job, which was about two years ago, and that feature existed. We heavily relied on it. I'm now trying to get the company I currently work with to consider using Wrike, and have noticed that feature no longer exists. Mass-cross-tagging is one of the main functionalities in Wrike that would help us save time in our information tracking. Having to cross-tag hundreds of entries one-by-one is extremely time-consuming and inefficient. It's not exactly Why was this feature removed?

I am also checking on the ability to cross-tag projects and/or tasks via the Excel import. I tried to use the blueprint and wasn't able to build cross-tagging there, so was planning to do it via Excel. I have 305 projects that need to be created, each with 7 folders that need to be cross-tagged. This is incredibly burdensome to have to do this manually. I built my initial project with the cross-tags and exported it, expecting that would be captured on my Excel file and I could replicate it accordingly, but apparently not. This really needs to be fixed!
