Default Workflow Name

Hi,

I'd like the option to set my own workflow as the default workflow or rename the default one to something more relevant to my team.

Currently we have four workflows per type of work in our team (that are named according to their specific type), as well as the default.

It can be confusing to users if they don't know what the default is because it is not named as such as it gives them too many options of buttons to choose from.

Hi Holly, thank you for the post! Something I wanted to mention, in case you haven't had a chance to try it out yet, is that it's possible to set a specific workflow for individual Projects and Folders. This way, the required workflow will be the first one shown in the list, and users know that they need to choose a status from this particular workflow and not any other ones:

Would this help?

Hi Anastasia,

 

We use this currently, so that's great thank you! :)

It would be great if there was a way we could alter it so that there isn't areas in the system that are available in menus that we don't utilize as a business.

I agree. I seems the Default Workflow cannot be renamed and can't be deleted or removed from it's primary position. Making it a waste of real estate.

I would also like to be able to rename Default Workflow into something more meaningful to users.  I get we can add custom workflows, I would just like the ability to rename "Default"

I also agree that the option to change the default workflow name would be useful and have more meaning for my colleagues.

I would also like to replace the existing Wrike Default Workflow with a custom Firm Default Workflow.

Yes, just like there is option to set workflow for projects and folders, there should be a way to do it for the space as well.

Lisa actually I managed to figure it out. There is a way to go to the settings of the space and set the workflow for that space.

Remove system default workflow should be available. If you allow us to set a default workflow than that should always be used. This just creates more work to set it to the correct one. Again, inefficiencies, a lot of wasted time on small items.
