Default Workflow needs to be able to be changed when tasks are already entered
The Default Workflow needs to be able to be changed after folders and tasks are set up. There are times that the project scope determines that we add/remove a workflow for assignees to select the appropriate task status. It appears that today, the workflow default only applies to new folders/tasks added once the workflow is changed.
Please consider the ability to change default workflow at any time in the project set up.
Pulling my duplicate post information to this post for easier accessibility:
Assigning Custom Workflows after Tasks have been Created
However, this is a very unfriendly design. I can’t imagine a scenario where a user would want to change the workflow for an entire project/folder but not impact existing tasks. My suggestion to Wrike would be to offer functionality that automatically updates the workflow assigned at the task level to the custom workflow. The task status if anything other than New (or the first active status), the task status would remain as is but the drop down would offer the custom workflow. At minimum, give users the option to change existing task workflow when changing at the project/folder level.
