New Dashboards - April 2024

Thought I would add the date to the title - since there are LOTs of posts and feedback on the New - New Dashboards.

I've had my teams really start to adopt and transition to the new dashboards - and generally speaking they are loving them!

There are a few highlights (I think they've submitted feedback via Wrike Assistant, too) - but posting here as well:

  • Predecessor Column: Would like to be able to turn this field on in the table view of dashboard widgets
  • Hierarchy Structure: Would like to be able to see the the tasks group by component similar to how they are in the table view or gantt view of the project plan/timeline. Currently it groups all tasks in a timeline together which can be challenging if you have components that run in parallel, but are divided into subfolders/project phases. Location helps with this, but is still not the most efficient visually to differentiate, especially if Project names are lengthy
  • Options for Grouping - currently the grouping of data is based on FOLDER location, ideally, I might want to group (not just sort) by status, or assignee etc

Yes. Yes. Yes! Would also love being able to add a new task or subtask in the dashboard widgets.

Hey Sherrie and Courtney, thank you for your feedback! Let me address your points below:
- Predecessor Column. It's on our roadmap to support it.
- Hierarchy Structure. Can you please elaborate a bit on it? Is it about a table or calendar widget?
- Options for Grouping. You can group a table by any column, even a custom field. Simply use the Break By option in the widget editor to select a field to group by.
- Adding a new task/subtask. It's on our radar. What is the expectation here? Should it be pre-populated with values from widget filters or just empty task in the selected location is good enough?

Vladimir Bugay - thanks for the response!

1) Predecessors - AWESOME

2 & 3 are actually BOTH solved by your response above! - for my use case - I wanted to group by a custom field, for Courtney's I believe she wanted to group by location. so checking with her to confirm that!

4) Adding New Task - This one can be a little trickier - IF you are looking at data FROM a single project/folder - then it make sense to add it to the "associated" project or folder... but the need to consider if you are showing a widget that contains MULTIPLE locations that could get a little trickier to ensure we don't orphan anything too.

All this makes me very happy!!! 

Adding on to 4)

I'm thinking this would only be used by PMs in a widget that is project based. Vs a widget that is pulling in tasks from multiple projects. I've gotten to the point where I can manage almost all actions from my dashboard, but the exception is when I have a project that goes out of scope and I have to create an additional unplanned task. I have to venture out of my dashboard into the project timeline to create a task for that adhoc ask. 

SO if I could create an additional task within a widget that is for a full project, that would be great! ex: being able to right click on the location(folder) grouping and adding at ask to that section. Similar to how you would add on from a project timeline. 

Let me know if that makes sense :)
