[Weekly Conversations] How are You Using the New Calendar View? ๐Ÿ“†

Hi everyone!
Weโ€™re back to have another discussion about new Wrike features, and today weโ€™re looking atย  Calendar view ๐Ÿ“†

Many of you have already been using Wrike Calendars. Now, we are introducing an additional capability to plan your work in Wrike.

Calendars are designed and best used for high-level, multi-source, program-level use cases. The new Calendar view, on the other hand, helps you get an overview of work items on a project level or in a single location: a project, folder, or space.ย 

Example:ย 

You work on one of the Content Marketing teams and own blog content

Your challenge:

You are currently using Calendar layers to only plan and track blog content but have to leave your current view to open your teamโ€™s calendar

Solution:

If you donโ€™t need a high-level view of all planned content, you can use the new Calendar view to only plan and review the blog content tasks ๐Ÿ‘

How are you using the Calendar view? Have you found them more useful for some particular types of work compared to Calendars? Please share your use cases below ๐Ÿ™‚

Our organization/team don't currently use the calendar view, but I have experimented with it by creating a calendar specifically within our team space and setting filters to show active tasks and only show due dates. A few teammates have stated that they've referenced it occasionally to think about timing of deadlines.

LOVE the new calendar view. I just went over it in detail with the Print Manager and the Digital Manager. I made a layer for each of their direct reports with end dates only and showed them how to select and deselect the layer to see only their team. They loved it. I may add a layer with the major Marketing campaigns, showing the duration. Very excited to see what's next!

It's a lot easier to view and access now and to preset defaults or custom views for the calendar view.ย  Also I just noticed today, that you can now create public links, which saves a ton of time not having to create the layers!ย ย

We have been using Calendars for some time as we pull together key dates from multiple projects/folders. We will start looking at how Calendar view can help with some of our projects or portfolio.

we do not use calender view. Calender is Outlook as this is corporate. What is missing for us is a real integration between Outlook and Wrike.

We haven't really use the calendar view method but this something I can look into. Thanks for sharing! Ditto with Sven on he integration between Outlook and Wrike. It would be more helpful for my team.ย

I think it's a nice addition in terms of creating flexibility: people can set up and use their environment completely to there wishes.
Just not sure if it will have a lot of added benefit. For me, the power of Calendars is really on a space level or in the Personal Space, combining info of multiple spaces.
Each team or theme will mostly have their space with a Calendar on the space-level which is customizable enough to comprise tasks on any level. On a project level or a folder with team tasks, I'm thinking the Table view and Kanban board and eventually the Gantt-chart are more practical in most scenarios.

But like I said. By giving the option, everyone can use Wrike according to their own flavour. It's also possible I did not came across a situation yet, where I would have benefited from the Calendar view.
It is nice to know however! I'll keep it in my toolbox and it could be a solution for a problem one dayย ๐Ÿ‘ (for me or anyone else in the organization using Wrike).

We prefer the Calendars as there are options in there that aren't available in the new calendar view unless we are specially looking at one project.

Calendar view is not something I'm used to sharing during standups. I'll take a second look with the added functions.ย

At our company, we use the calendar view to quickly and easily view resources who are on sick leave or on vacation. In fact, we have two forms that allow insertion in this calendar, in this way the whole team is always aligned.

The other use is related to the planning, only of the publication of social posts within our company.

It would be useful for us, next to each date, to have a popup appear with the list of people who have a task on that day, to see their workload for the specific task and to be able to see the total workload for the day.

The new Calendar view on projects and folders unlocks new potential for us. We're currently using it as a high-level roadmap view in our Product folder. Since we can't view projects on the Board view, we created a task for every Product project and assigned start and end dates. Now we can view those "project" tasks on a Board View AND Calendar view, but the visual difference is key for various leadership levels within the organization.

This will also be handy for viewing the Agile Marketing team's work in a different way, especially with leaders. Sometimes the Board view doesn't resonate with them, but I think a Calendar view would be more helpful to show how much the team works on every day. The only other feature that would be super handy to have is to be able to show all subtasks assigned to a single assignee on a Calendar view. Our use case for that is basically every piece of content the team creates requires 3 - 6 people, so only one Owner is assigned to the main task and subtasks are created and assigned to each creator for their piece of the work. We limit the ownership of each task to ONE person to visualize who is responsible for helping their teammates stay on track and if there are any questions, that single person is responsible for taking the lead.ย
