[Status: Not planned] Converting Projects/Folders to Tasks

I would love to see wrike add an option to convert projects and folders to tasks. It takes a lot of time to copy/paste all the content to a task if you start with a project.

Hi Elaine,

 

I'm interested in this idea too. Now that it has over 60 votes, how can I view the status? 

Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm new to Wrike...

Hi again, everyone! I've spoken with the team - this isn't on their short-term roadmap currently, so I'm updating the status here to "Not planned" for now. The team will continue to receive all the feedback from this thread and I'll be back here once I have an update from them.

Thank you for supporting this suggestion. I understand that the fact that this isn't currently planned can be disappointing, but please rest assured that it's on the team's radar.

highly useful, particularly when an import converts a task to a project / folder when you don't want it to

A bit of a specific use case here. We are trying to convert a legacy of Gantt charts from Smart Sheet to Wrike. When we export to an MS Project from Smart Sheet, then import the XML MS Project file into Wrike, ➞ all items are created as folders 🙁.

A few questions:

  1. is that a desired outcome?
  2. If there's no way to resolve this issue, then indeed converting a batch of folders into tasks would be extremely useful for us

This function would be extremely helpful when someone incorrectly adds a project that should have been a folder or task.  Thanks!

I agree with Bonnie, it is needed for when errors are made.

Stopping by to support this! Having the ability to change something from a Project to a Task would be incredibly useful.

Hi Elaine, I also vote that Wrike to have functionality to convert task to folder or to project and the other way around, convert project or folder to task. We have had many scenarios where we required to convert project to tasks (because you cannot assign a person to a project and for it to be displayed in their "to do"/"tasks assigned to me").

Thank you

Hi, I'm new to Wrike so making a lot of mistakes setting things up 🙂. Being able convert items between any type seems like a fairly basic and very useful bit of functionality.
