Is there a way to track late work?
We are a marketing and communications department whose workload is larger than its size. We work with both projects and one-off tasks but bust the occasional deadline.
It's a simple feat to move the due date for, say, a blog post task. Doing so will give leadership an accurate calendar of when things went live. However, we lose the original due date and any indication as to how late we were to complete the task.
Does Wrike offer anything in the way of tracking this sort of thing?
Hi Teddy we added a custom field to our projects called 'Requested completion date' so we could keep track of the original completed date that was requested by the client. That has helped us to compare.
Thank you, Amy!
HI! We have prepared an integration that:
- when the task is generated, when the expiration date is entered we will automatically copy it in a custom field "Original expiry date"
- whenever the task is modified, in the due date we check whether the "original due date" is populated or not. If it is populated, we add "+1" to another field called "No. of Task Shifts".
In this way we have for each task:
- current expiry date
- original expiry date
- number of movements performed
Great solution - thank you, Pietro!
Pietro Poli - How do you automatically copy the expiration date to a custom field? I can't seem to figure it out using Automations.
You need to use external application to do this automation.
I've used make.com to test functionality and then our developer created automatism by API.
