Job Roles not showing in uploading excel files into Wrike

 

We are using the excel template for very large repetitive projects as we can programatically in excel set up several hundred rows that have the same tasks applied repeatedly.

 

To help us with workload planning we would like to use the Job Role to estimate the Effort required and assign different resources depending on their forecast workload.

 

When I set up the excel sheet for import to Wrike, I add the “Job Role” to the “Assigned to” field.

 

 

 

During the import, Wrike asks me to confirm the matching field, but when I refresh, the Assigned to field is empty.

 

 

 

Currently assignments in the import only apply to individuals, but we would like them to be Job Roles as well

 

thanks!

Hi! 

I am having the same issue. We want our blueprints to have the flexibility that job roles provides, but it's also not coming through in my imports.

 

Thanks

Hello Jeffrey Veffer, Kate Russell thank you both for posting.
 
Just to briefly clarify, Assigned to column should be associated with users in order to show up. I've passed on the feedback regarding showing Job Roles on the report to our Product team 😊

Here is a quick update for those following this post ("Job Roles not showing in uploading excel files into Wrike") - I heard from the support team that 

it's currently not possible to assign an item to a Job Role when importing from Excel. The Job Roles are options on the dropdown when mapping users after importing your file, but the function is not supported. Perhaps it will be in the future, but for now you can only assign items to active users in your Wrike account.
