[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Tasks dependency setup should not be locked base on Task Status

Hi guys,

I noticed a strange behavior/UX in wrike today.

 

1- I was waiting for an information from some colleague, which blocked one of my task

>> action : task status = Blocked.

 

Then, having a bit of delay, i decided to create a specific task to get the action done by a colleague

2- Create second task, setup dependancy.

 

and here is the issue:

  • if the task is "active", i can set the dependency
  • if the task is "blocked" (on hold), I can't set the dependency

I do not understand this behavior. Whatever the actual status of my task, i should be able to manage all project management feature associated with those task, especially dependencies

read you soon and happy to get any feedback

 

Julien

I noticed this too while I was iterating a project template that we use. I had to change the parent tasks to an active status before it would let me assign dependencies. Looking forward hearing a response from Wrike on this.

Hey guys, I'm very sorry for such a long reply, must have overlooked this thread 😔

@Julien, please let me know whether you've brought it up with our Support - if not, I can raise a ticket for you because I think this needs some troubleshooting.

This would be awesome, as it's really not userfriendly, costs some time, and generates useless notififcations, so bring sometimes confusion.

Looking forward for a positive bug fixing and thanks for the information

Hello, I see this issue is still on Backburner. We could REALLY use this addition, otherwise we have to set them to Not Started, but they are actually just waiting on someone else to finish a task before they can begin. Then they show up as Overdue which is not the case, and can get cluttered with the rest of the Overdue items that are actionable. 

Any word for the On Hold dependency capability?

Hey folks, I wanted to share an update here to let you know that unfortunately, there are no plans for this at the moment.

I know this will come as disappointing news, as this had been planned. However, upon closer investigation, the team encountered blockers that made the implementation of this suggestion more difficult than originally thought and for that reason, there are no plans for this currently.

The status here remains 'Backburner', as the team is still interested in this and there is the potential that this could be addressed in the future. Thanks for your support of this suggestion and the feedback you've shared here. We'll be sure to keep you updated on any changes 👍
