🕰️Releases-Custom fields, tracking time, and a lot of tables (9/12/19)
Auto-Suggestions and Search on Calculated Custom Fields
When you write a formula for your calculated custom fields, Wrike now automatically shows the list of all available fields, and when you start entering a field's name, Wrike suggests relevant search results. You'll never be lost looking for a field again, unless you're in the countryside!
Billing Type Column on Table View
Now users can see and change the billing type of projects and tasks on the Table view. Just like a duck, you'll find it very hard to lose your bill.
Time Tracker New Look and Feel
Our time tracker has been given a UI update. We have removed the individual spaces for hours and minutes and the time can now be added in one box.
Workflow Status on Table View
You might have noticed that when you applied a custom workflow to a project and then went on to create tasks and subtasks within the project in Table view, tasks got the statuses of the correct custom workflow, but the subtasks got the first active status of the default workflow. We've taken care of this 💪
New Time Tracker looks good, but users have been complaining that old input method was more convenient.
Also worth noting, it defaults to minutes if a measure isn't specified, so keep an eye on it for a while!
Sorry, meant to say it doesn't default to minutes, it defaults to hours.
Thanks for all your feedback, it's being passed on to our Product Managers and they'll be taking it into account when they are considering future updates to the feature! 😊
Agreed with other commentators. It would be awesome if the time entry was left with the two-box feature using the colon; one for hours, the other for minutes. Our team is accidentally inputing hours innocently enough. Please adjust to make it more intuitive.
I agree that the hour and minute separate boxes with the colon is visually more clear and makes sense. I understand that the single box with h and m denoted may be technically more efficient, but it is not as end-user clear. I also like the numbers being a bit bigger like the old one so that the values of the time stands out in the dialog.
Another issue that has come up for us is the categories. It is not required so many users fail to fill this in. It is important to us to have the categories on the time for reporting, but only half the entries actually select a category.
I would like a setting to require the category with a time entry.
I agree with many of the above comments, the new Time Tracker is more difficult to use:
Thank you all so much for your feedback, it's been really helpful for our Product Managers. All of the information in this thread has been passed on and the team will be using this feedback to improve the Time Tracker feature. As soon as we receive an update from them about when the changes are being released, they will be featured in a Weekly Release Notes post in the coming weeks and we'll let you know in this thread too, so that you'll be able to check them out as soon as they go live!
Thanks again for all your comments! If you have any other questions or ideas let me know 😊
