[Status: Investigating ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ] Add subtasks to the Board View

Right now only parent tasks are visible in the Board View. It would be really great if we could see all the subtasks too. Probably a new advanced filter would do the trick, so that a user could switch between displaying only up level tasks or all tasks including subtasks. It will definitely help in managing complicated goals.

The Board View is the centerpiece of Wrike. It is a shame that the subtasks are not showing up there. This feature would be great.

I'm getting into this conversation on the brink of Q420, and to see that the issue hasn't been resolved by now is concerning. I will echo the sentiments of earlier board commenters: This is a high-interest functionality that needs to be added ASAP. I can't consider Wrike as an Agile-supporting tool until this is in place. It wouldn't be that difficult to achieve. Just add the names and links to the subtasks in their respective cards, or even a "card drawer" where you could expand a quick view of the subtasks. Enough for visibility and expansion.

I am new to Wrike this year after many  years of using Jira, and I am shocked that is has been requested hundreds of times over more than two years, and the Wrike Product Team has not decided to prioritize this and add this value. This is a high-interest functionality that needs to be added ASAP. I can't consider recommending Wrike as an Agile-supporting tool until this is in place. What will it take to communicate this as an absolute requirement to your tool?

Wrike is a required tool within my company to manage projects successfully, and Kaban (Board view) is highly favored.  Please implement subtasks being visible in the Board view as soon as possible.

Hi everyone, a quick update here -

While the Product team have no plans to add this suggestion to the short-term roadmap, there are plans to work on this suggestion next year. As soon as I have any new information, I'll be sure to let you know.

I too would like to see sub-tasks able to display on the board view (without a ghost tag workaround). This should be an option to enable/disable per board. And like others have suggested, have some display options like:

- swim lanes for parent tasks

- show subtasks 'inline' in the card or show as separate cards

At least provide a way to search for tasks with ghost tags.

Agered - this would be a very useful feature. When it shows you a count of subtasks, the users try to click through. So would improve the board feature to be more detailed.

So what do your [Wrike] developers use to track their work? JIRA? Something with a true kanban board?

@David Fienzeig, funny I've meant to ask that myself for a while now...hard to imagine any serious dev team doing work with this kind of board.  Would be really appropriate for Wrike to weigh in on this, like present a "how-to" if they actually use this meager board to develop the product, and show the rest of the user base how that's possible.  I gave up on Wrike for now as this was one of the biggest limitations - my need is mainly software dev, with team management and marketing as well.  But could never get anywhere with these primitive boards.

Great post!

@David Feinzeig, We use Jira at our firm since Wrike's Board View is non functional to be effectively used as a Kanban board.

I have left Wrike, but am reconsidering and this is one of the bigger missing pieces.  While glad to see Lisa mentioning these improvements will actually be considered, I'm typically concerned by the nebulous nature of that comment - "we have plans next year," and we'll let you know when we can, etc.  Really seems there has been no resolutions to be more straightforward with the community about what the Product Team - who I still contend needs a presence here in the community so the mods are not continually running smoke screens - actually plans to do.  I signed up for the Weekly Release updates for about the last year, but while it's admirable that you guys actually do weekly releases, the amount of actual features of substance in those releases is negligible.  

Would you guys care to actually answer the question about what you use for dev?  Most of your competitors have big, transparent info about how they use their own tools to develop their own tool!  I don't know why you have avoided that question, so I'm going to ask again and see if you will avoid it yet another time!  What board to your devs use when developing Wrike??
