[From Wrike] Smart Folders are coming to a Personal Space near you!

In evidenza
 

Update: Smart Folders are now available in your Wrike account! 

 
Hey there! 
 
On October 31, the My Work view will be leaving the Wrike platform. But don’t fret! We’ve got some exciting news that we’re excited to share. We’d like to announce that Smart Folders will be entering the Personal Space to replace the legacy My Work view.
 
What are Smart Folders you ask?
 
Smart Folders automatically populate tasks for you, depending on certain properties of the folder. Smart Folders entering Wrike:  
  • My to-do: All your assigned tasks appear in this smart folder for you to organize and prioritize as you see fit

  • Created by me: Quickly find all the tasks and requests that you’ve created, even if you’re not assigned to them 

 
Are you ready for Smart Folders? Comment below to let us know what you think! 🙂

Hi everyone!
 
We wanted to confirm the final date of sunset for the MyWork functionality as June 30, 2020.
 
Our product team have and will continue to improve the My to-do smart list - thank you all again for providing so much feedback and use-cases on this thread! Here's what the team have added recently:
 
– Additional sorting options for My to-do: date created, date modified,
– Plain mode in addition to default hierarchical one
– Two-line layout, that is more convenient to work with task view opened
 
We've also recently published a guide to managing personal work in Wrike - make sure to check it out and let us know in the comments if you have any questions or feedback on it.
 
If you still have concerns about how best to organize your work, please don't hesitate to reach out to your Account Manager or Customer Success Manager. If you're not sure how to contact them, we or our Support team (support@team.wrike.com) will be happy to help.
 
Thank you again for your feedback, it's been extremely valuable!

I am sad that Wrike believes the middle of a worldwide pandemic is the right time to disrupt my employee todo list in order to deal with their legacy code issues, and I will remember this when times are better and I go back to spending my time thinking about task management systems. Obviously, I am not spending my time thinking about task management systems in the middle of a pandemic, which is why your announcement is so VERY unwelcome.

Excellent strategy!

For wrike's business, taking up this theme right in the midst of the global lookdown is the best time since for its users it is instead the worst time to evaluate whether and how to migrate to other systems while they are committed to countering the effects of the pandemic.

And months later:

  • your "smartlists" are not really "smart" at all.
  • still no differentiation between grouping and sorting
  • still no double sorting priority > date or date > priority

if grouped by status, the list is then sorted alphabetically, which makes absolutely no sense. I've already explained this twice, and I feel like I haven't been heard.

example: group by status then sort 1. by date and 2. by priority

Please reconsider this terrible timing. "My Work" functionality has still not been replicated in the new smart lists - why?

Hi everyone,

Thank you for your feedback here. We hear you and we will act on this.

Although the sunset of this feature is essential to be able to maintain and improve our product, we can appreciate that the timing here is not ideal. For that reason and based on the comments you've shared here, we have decided to delay the sunset of this feature for now, so this won't be happening on June 30th as mentioned above.

As you know, your feedback and insights are invaluable to us here on the Community, so thank you for taking the time to highlight your concerns. We'll follow up with more detail on this at a later date.

If you've any questions or if you need further assistance, please do let us know.

So sad to see you all still struggling with this. . .I am so glad I left Wrike. Asana has been a complete dream. So nice to work with and suits me down to the ground.

Also, check this out. . . for small teams, at last a feature to allow you to buy as many seats as you need. I was just notified of the new plans and they have now dropped the minimum of 5 seats for all business and premium plans. ;)

Don't put up with this kind of treatment over here. The grass isn't always greener, but for somebody now on the other side, I can tell you it it is in this case. :)

No referral incentive or anything, I'm just constantly happy at the way I'm treated over there. A massive difference to the totalitarian Wrike experience. "We know best, your concerns are irrelevant."

Best of luck to you all.

Hi Christian Fitzpatrick,

We're sorry to see you go and appreciate the feedback you've shared here in relation to this request.

As mentioned above, we have delayed the sunset of this feature based on user feedback for now. User feedback is vital to us, and as demonstrated, has an impact on the decisions we make in relation to our Product.

We do appreciate your honesty and candor here, it's been taken on board and we wish you all the best for the future. If you need anything else please do let us know.

Elaine Not to shoot the messenger Elaine, (as this actual issue is so far removed from anything to do with you it's not funny), even suggesting a final sunset date of June 30th to start with clearly illustratres how tone deaf the powers that be at Wrike are.

Have you read this entire thread? Is there anything in it that suggests that the Wrike Dev team truly listen to user feedback? It would appear that My To Do is now only incrementally closer to replicating My Work and that's it. . .the guys have stopped and you were about to expect every user to just lump that average new feature in just over a month. How long has it taken them to implement the three new features listed above? Almost 8 months now? That's telling of their focus and dedication to make this right.

It's a little interesting too that under cover of a worldwide crisis the team decided that "Oh, now would be a great time to get rid of that unpleasant business we created with the whole My Work/My To Do fiasco. Let's put a date on it."

So whilst I appreciate the platitudes and falsehoods - as I guarantee you almost certainly don't appreciate my ongoing input in this thread - how about you guys actually do the right thing by your users, actually listen to the feedback and actively make this right for all the poor buggers who trusted you, pay you and are too deeply embedded within your system to make leaving a viable alternative. It is your obligation.

This platform is owned by the users. Without them, it's a shell. Wrike would be wise to remember that and start acting accordingly.

Elaine McDonagh We have been giving Wrike a full list of arguments and feedback on how we don't think My to-do closely replaces My work tab. still the team at wrike thought it was the moment to change, even when they don't hace a complete solution...  I apreciate the delaying of the sunset, but I don't think Wrike takes seriously what we say and the precious feedback we gave...

I've been giving a try to My to-do and it is still too far from My work tab. My to-do is not what I subscribed for when I bought my licence.

I transitioned over to Todoist after the removal of My Work. I've also stopped recommending Write to any new clients when I'm helping them upgrade their project management system.

I honestly can't explain to someone how they should use Write now that My Work has been removed. In my perspective, Write is not functional anymore.

When I went looking for a new platform, I used the following criteria for what I needed to be able to get done in the new system (Write team, take note!):

  1. Dump in every item/thing that needs to get done
  2. Label/tag work by category type
  3. Organize items into projects
  4. Assign items to teams and team members
  5. Create multiple views for grouping things based on any of my chosen criteria
  6. Add items that I'll work on today or this week and reorder them on a final "working" list
  7. Schedule items onto my Google Calendar

I settled on Todoist and I'm thrilled with how easily it handles all of those functions and I'm now a paying customer.

Lionel Church I also used to reccomend Wrike to everybody. I would say I directly signed up at least 3 other people and recommended to a tonne more. Now I recommend Asana. . .Sadly.

I guess I say sadly, because usually I'm very loyal to platforms. If they work for me really well, I don't like to change. Changing to Asana really upset me at the time, not because of the change, but because it's a corner I was backed into and Wrike really didn't negotiate anything with regard to renewing my subscription until it was all resolved.

It's sad and I'm still here because I do feel some loyalty still and hope that they will do the right thing by the users that remain. Stunts like this really upset people and lose them clients. The thinking that the new clients won't know any better is flawed, because they are actually throwing away functionality that many people found was the only way Wrike really worked at all. . .That should be concern enough.

Anyways, I really shouldn't complain, I think I pay like 7% of what Wrike was costing me with Asana and I can do nearly everything with the exception of video proofing, which I rarely used.

Fingers crossed they get their act together. Usually this kind of treatment is telling of things to come.

A Wrike "customer success manager" contacted me today about the imminent sunset of My Work. I guess they're doubling down on pushing this through during Covid, national riots, etc. - feels pretty tone deaf.

Hi Alexander Numann, thanks for getting in touch. Apologies for any confusion caused by this. The Customer Success Manager was reaching out to offer assistance with the functionality and transition, but rest assured that the sunset has been delayed for now due to the feedback shared here. We'll be in touch again when there are more updates to share in relation to this. Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager, or to us here if you need anything else in the meantime.

Hello everyone!
 
An important update regarding MyWork sunset from our team:
The team has been reviewing analytics and MyWork usage per account and they can see that there are a number of users who have no usage of MyWork. If your account members don’t use MyWork regularly, the team will proceed with the sunset in the coming days. 
 
Please note that if you asked us to keep MyWork for your account that this will not affect you, the team isn’t going to sunset it for you as of yet. This only affects accounts with no usage of this functionality. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Customer Success Manager or Account Manager, or here on the Community - we’ll be happy to help 👍

Hi Lisa I asked to keep using My Work tab and still they removed it, now it's impossible for me to organize my work, I still can't find a proper way, My todo is useless as you can't organize the work as we used to do. And dashboards are closer but still there are many features missing...

Really disappointed with this... This is not what I suscribed for.

I only use My Work tab and it has been removed. I responded previously asking for you to keep it for our group, but still it was removed. With My To-Do, there is no way for me to prioritize projects other than the default sort.

Lisa, Please add me back in My Work.

 

Thanks!

Asana. We have saved so much money since migrating there. And during a global pandemic that has been welcomed.

Stop trusting that this is going to be resolved satisfactorily. It will not. May as wel make the shift now so you can run both systems in tandem for a short period to ensure a safe and hassle free transition.

Hi Luka Mladenović, M.Arch, 1. Steve Cory, Luis Perez, Levi James and Robert Winter.

I've spoken to our Product team about this. MyWork was removed from accounts that had no usage at this time and the removal of this feature for these accounts took place at the beginning of September. 
 
If you would still like to retain MyWork, our Product manager would like to discuss this further with you. She'd like to get a better understanding of your needs and requirements here. She will be in touch by email to arrange follow-ups with you. 
 
If you need anything in the meantime, be sure to let me know.

Hi Elaine 

We have been giving lots of feedbacks on our needs and requirements about this. I used My work tab everyday, and still was removed from me.

I haven't found a proper solution on the tool to replace this and I remember this everyday when I try to organize my work, I find My to-do tab useless...

I still can't believe you removed a main feature without having replaced it...
