[Status: Investigating ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ] Assign User Groups

I was very disappointed to see that you cannot assign a User Group to a task. I understand Wrike's idea that each task should have a single assignee (What we used to call an ONTG - one neck to grab) but it is also very common to have multiple people assigned to a task with one person responsible. We wanted to use User Groups this way so we did not have to go through the hassle of adding each individual you wanted to assign one at a time, which by the way Wrike allows and is exactly the same as allowing a User Group to be assigned, just much more time consuming. So if you can do it one by one it only makes sense to support doing it as a group

So I would like a feature enhancement to allow User Groups to be assigned to a task.

What I would like to see is the ability to add a pre-determined list of individuals as followers or assignee's. Similar to how you can make an email group. Making sure to add individuals gets very tedious and very easy to forget someone. Especially when you have a team of individuals that are from different disciplines i.e.electrical, mechanical, etc working towards the task. Ultimately what I would like to see is the ability to make my own personal group of pre-selected individuals I can add to a task as assignee's or followers.

Has this been addressed by Wrike yet? It seems like there are a large number of users requesting this functionality and I too, would benefit from the ability to assign a group to a task.  We currently assign all tasks for a particular department to one person, but are now running into the issue that an individual can only have a capacity of 24h/day when in fact with the number of team members, the capacity is closer to 30h/day.

Hi Erin Crocker, welcome to the forums! ๐Ÿ™‚

It is now possible to assign tasks to job roles, which should cover the ask shared on this thread to assign work to a group of people. Would that be helpful in your case?
