[Feature Request] Reference between tasks and projects is missing
Wrike is working with projects, tasks and subtasks. It's very easy to navigate from a task to the assigned subtask and otherwise, but it's very complicated or just not possible to navigate from a project to the assigned tasks and otherwise (always when it's opened as popup).
Examples for the problem
1) Go to the table view and open a project (in a popup). There, the assigned tasks are not visible within the popup. There is no possibility to navigate to an assigned task from there.
2) Go to table, board, ressources or calendar view and open a task (in a popup). Within this popup view, you can see the locations/projects (reference) the task is assigned to. But when you click on that reference, the current view is always changed to list, so you loose the current context you are working in. One the other side navigating to subtasks is easy possible within the same popup without loosing the view.
Suggestion for a solution
1) I would like to to have the functionality to show the assigned tasks in a project (popup) view analog to the task view where the assigned subtasks are listed. I created a screenshot with the fictive functionality added for default projects and custom items.
2) I would like to have the functionality to navigate from a task to the project within the same popup without changing the view/context. I try to visualize it in the following screenshot and add an info button to change the context/path if required:
That feature would make our daily work with Wrike so much easier and i' sure all customers would benefit!
Marco Eberl Thank you so much for providing such detailed feedback with screenshots! We're now passing your suggestions to our Product team 👍

The new feature (displaybed below) for custom item types does help with the issue described in example 1).
The subtasks/projects are still not displayed but at least, there is a clickable button now to navigate to the project location. Unfortunately, the feature affects only custom item types, but no basic projects.
We cannot use custom item types for projects due to this issue: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/10161473152151--Bug-TimeSpent-is-missing-in-custom-item-type-project-
Is there any plan to fix that linked issue or to add that feature to basic projects too?
Hi Marco Eberl, thank you for the additional details. As announced in our Weekly Release Notes, the Time Spent field is now available in Custom Item View. In case you are experiencing a different behavior, please let us know!
