Assign task owners

Hi, Can I find out if there is a field for assignment of a task to a specific owner or owners? For example, I can assign a task as owned by individual A. The tasks can be assigned to individuals A, B, C and D who are collaborators but I would like to designate individual A as the owner who is accountable for the task completion? Thank you for your reply.

Hello! Projects have owners and Tasks have assignees. If you want to point to one person being the responsible one for a task, you could leverage a custom field. Use the user type and then you can choose from any of the Wrike users for that task then.

I strongly suggest assigning a single task only to one assignee, to avoid your issue. Collaborators can simply be added as followers, or if it's a more complex task, it would be better to create subtasks where you can assign each person tho the part he has to do.

Devree Czupinski curious about your response of custom fields. Which one have you used in the past with success? New to the custom field experience.

Lea Labastida We use almost all if not all types of custom fields! Dropdowns, Checkbox, User, Dates, Numeric, Multi-select, short and long answer! What specifically are you curious about? Our department loves these fields because we can track traits of our work at a project level. We have many reports (recurring and one-time) that we run so knowing traits and aspect of each is useful. This is especially useful in the reports feature in Wrike or in Dashboards. We also have a fair few of the custom fields filled in upon submission of our request form!
