When I was onboarding myself and my team to Wrike, I discovered a very helpful Wrike Webinar called “Personal Productivity in Wrike.” I made everyone watch it, and it was a game changer! The biggest takeaway was how to create a “My Top 6” folder, in which teammates can tag the 6 tasks they want to accomplish in a day and make those tasks their sole priority. When Wrike updated the “My Work” feature in labs (Wrike.com/labs), I thought “YESSS! Wrike has automated this for us.”
Not quite... With the My Work Update you can drag and drop tasks to change their priority order, but there are a few things preventing it from functioning as a true My Top 6. If this feature could follow your own productivity advice, it’ll change the way people work within Wrike (and eliminate the overdependence on Dashboards).
- Above “Incoming” and “Today” create a section called “My Top 6”.
- Add a search feature so that someone can search for the task they want to add into their Top 6.
- Add a hover feature on the side that says “add to My Top 6” so that it’ll automatically add a task to the Top 6 list when clicked.
From there the teammate can drag/drop the task in the Top 6 list into whatever order they want. There would probably also need to be a hover feature for “remove from My Top 6” is the task no longer becomes a priority.
I think it would be equally important to prevent someone from having more than 6 tasks in that section. If someone tries, a warning can pop up, and they can be directed to watch the productivity video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02sGQXhhE4o
