[Status: Not planned] Project/Folder Dependencies

Hello,

Something that I would be useful would be the ability to assign project/folder dependencies. Example:

Project: SQL Server Update

Folder: Reporting Rework (Depends upon completion of entire SQL Server Update project)

Task: Create XYZ report (Depends upon completion of SQL Server Update as a whole)

I hope that makes sense, basically just taking Dependencies and expanding them so they can be on projects/folder and also so that an assigned dependency can point to a Project/Folder.

Regards,

  Colby

Hiya

Just to doubble check: It is NOT POSSIBlE to build cross-project dependencies in WRIKE (meaning: dependencies between different projects either in the same folder/space or between different sub-projects within one project)?

Not being able to show dependencies across different workflows (projects/subproject etc) is actually a deal breaker.

Thanks!

You are correct, Fedon Moog, but let's check for possible workarounds on connecting projects with dependencies with our Support team. I'm raising a ticket for you now and I'll post back here if there's a way 👍

Just checking in on this feature. I have placed my vote, but want to remind the Wrike team how important and crucial this project is to create.

I second that, Donna Goodwin.  My organization is requesting this frequently.

Hey everyone! I don't have any updates from the Product team on this at the moment, but here's a workaround our Support team recommends using in the meantime in case you find it useful:

Here are the links that explain the Timeline view, how to set up dependencies between tasks, and how to add milestones to your projects:

https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/210323585-Gantt-Chart-Timeline-Overview-
https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/209604229-Dependencies-on-the-Timeline-View-
https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/210323565-Milestones-on-the-Timeline-View-

You can start by building up all the dependencies between tasks in each project you are working on. When this is done, any change to one task's duration or its start or end date will automatically push all the dependent tasks as well, thus the schedule for the project will auto-adjust. 

Then, you can connect the last task from the previous project with the first task of the next project, thus all the tasks in all the projects would have dependencies set up and when even a single task in the chain is changed, all other tasks will reschedule as well and this means that Projects also reschedule automatically.
