Approvals showing up in Dashboards, Reports, My to-do

Hi there,

We love the new Approvals and how they integrate into the workflow! There is one issue though that is deflating the experience: Approvals don't show up in Dashboards, Reports or My to-do.

When I am assigned as an Approver for a task, I only get an E-mail Notification and it shows up in my inbox.

When some-one gets a lot of approvals assigned to them, or an approval is scheduled a bit in advance, it gets lost in the Inbox really easy. We use Dashboards to keep our teams on-task, and because Approvals don't show up on the dashboards, they tend to slip through the cracks - exactly the opposite of what we want Wrike to do for us!

It would be great if they could show up in as a minimum the Dashboards so we can track who's doing what & when.

Thanks,

Jaco

Thank you for your feedback here, folks! I've reached out to the team to see if there's an update, and for now, there isn't one. They might be able to start the research for this suggestion later in the year, and we'll let you know if we have any news in the future 👍

Hi Lisa, 

I've already commented on this previously. Clearly, I'm not the only one who feels that without "Approvals" appearing in the person's "To-Do" list like a task then (at least for us) the feature creates more problems than it solves.

I am on the verge of abandoning approvals with Wrike altogether. I'm finding infrequent users are simply frustrated (as am I) by not being able to find what they need to approve. As a result, using Wrike for approvals simply isn't working.

I'm also having to spend a lot of time chasing approvers and asking why they haven't yet approved it. The answer I get is, "I can't find what I need to approve" This is creating resistance from users with the approvals process and frustration which is now spilling more generally to "Wrike" as a tool, which is perceived as difficult and not easy to find what you need, which we know isn't the case for the most part other than this "Approvals" feature. 

I really do hope that some solution can be found to improve the approvals process or we will be abandoning it as a useful feature to prevent the wider spread frustrations of some who only use approvals.

Are there any updates as to when we can see approvals in Wrike Analyze? I'm surprised we have little functionality with approvals in reports but none whatsoever in the Analyze section. This is crucial for our team.

Upvoted - and adding... Approvals are basically not useful to us if we can't report on them.  I'll have to fake out tasks with custom workflows instead.

Would love to know when this will be available in Reports, Dashboards, Table Views, anything!   Thanks!
