[Released] Recurrent Tasks Beta Program

Recurring tasks have been the topic of one of our hottest Community discussions, and in June we launched a beta program packed with changes based on your suggestions.  

 

Quick recap of what things were like before:

  • All tasks in a recurrence were created at the same time and were immediately shown in the Workspace, which resulted in a whole bunch of identical tasks. 
  • The maximum number of recurrences in a single chain was 60.

 Now:

  • Tasks are created (and appear in the Workspace) right before their start date. Each task in a recurrence is created one working day before its start date, at around 5 o'clock in the morning (your timezone). Example: If I have a weekly recurrence on Monday, a new task is created every Friday.
  • The maximum amount of recurrences was raised to 999.

What else?

  • Future tasks (that haven't been created yet) don't show up on the Timeline or Workload View.
  • When a recurrence comes to an end, the author and assignee get @mentioned on the last task with a message letting them know that the recurrence had ended.
  • Recurring task titles are based on the original task’s title, and the start date of the recurrence is added after the original title.
  • If you’re not using a recurrence, Wrike automatically pauses it. If 15 tasks weren’t modified, Wrike Bot lets you know that the recurrence is now paused. Need to unpause it? Just modify a task.

Question: Will this alter currently recurring tasks or only new tasks that are created as recurrent?

Having read more of the details I have decided not to trial the beta programme on this one.

Thanks for the details below based on that please do not switch this beta on for us.

 

Most looks good, not being able to directly create reoccurring task in the folder and we are planning at least the next week and in less detail the further out than that so only seeing the tasks on timelines and workload views 24 hrs before would not work for us, and I suspect many other people as well.

 

For us to use it would be necessary to have the option be able to define and edit this creation period for each recurrent task.

 

Hopefully the above is useful feedback without joining the Beta Programme on this one.

 

Thanks and good luck others.
