There are some posts around the forum on some aspects of this, but I wanted to start one bringing together several. You guys are constantly improving List view, and I imagine some of this is in motion already. I am back and forth as to whether to stick with Wrike, and knowing about your plans here would help me a great deal with committing. Lisa and @... if you could provide any insight into any of this, that would help me.
- customize the columns. You can add just about any attribute in Table View. I could really use this in List View though, for example some Custom Fields, which also have the disadvantage of not being greatly visible in the Task Details, because they are not always visible, for example if you are showing subtasks. Having them in the List View visible would mean you can see them all the time, and not have to toggle in the details.
*** a huge one here would be the ability to show the Job ID here (as well as board view, too) as it's badly needed to be seen everywhere in Wrike not just in task details and table view.
- click into the columns like you can with the Date, but you can't with Status. If you added more customizability, you could then adjust drop downs in Custom Fields of that type, for example.
- Colors would be excellent - showing the color of folders that have color assigned
- Showing an entire top-level folder or project in the List at once, ie not having to click into each to see what tasks are there. This is very useful if I am trying to do Portfolio Management in List View - I have say 4 projects rolled up into a Quarterly Initiative Project. I'd like to be able to expand the Projects and see at a glance what tasks are in which projects. I can do this in Table view and that's great. But it's funny to have to click into each Project to see its tasks, and then rely on the breadcrumbs only at the top of the List View to see that we're still in that top-level Project. My team has struggled with this the months we've been using Wrike.
Asana really excels here and I think you guys could gain a lot of the leg up they have on you with at least letting sub-folders expand in the List view.
Really hoping you guys can shed some light on whether any of this is coming to Wrike anytime soon!
