[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Recurrent Parent + Subtasks

When making a recurrent task, I also need the subtasks of that parent task to be recurrent.

While the option to NOT carry over subtasks is great for things like recurrent meetings, the need to sometimes carry them over or to nest related recurrent tasks is much needed. We have a number of simple 1-2 step monthly activities, so either the ability to CHOOSE to have subtasks carry over (not automatically) or the ability to have recurrent projects is much needed. Thanks!

Hi everyone! The status isn't updated at the moment and remains a "Backburner". I'll be checking with the Product team again in a couple of months and get back to you as soon as I have news. 

Thanks for letting us know what you think!

I would also suggest that when you a recurring task is sync'd to a calendar, that the recurring tasks are automatically sync'd to that same calendar.

From a marketing use case standpoint we have recurring emails that go out weekly for nurture programs on the same day every week. Right now we're having to sync every recurring task to the calendar which is a complete waste of time. I'm sure the same goes for others on reporting/ leadership presentations/ QBRs, etc.

Lisa have you been able to find out if this will be changing soon?  This would be really helpful.

Another up-vote for this, we certainly need this functionality. If we need a recurring task for activities completed by a team of colleagues, we really need the sub-tasks to be pulled through on the recurrent task so that each person within the team can manage their aspect of the activity on their respective sub-task. Thanks

Another up-vote: Recurrent subtasks as an option are very useful!

Hello,
Any update on this feature? 
Our team would be able to eliminate a lot of inefficiency by having this recur in the manner in which they were created.

Agree with most - it would be very helpful if the subtasks within a recurrent task were also recreated at the recurrence date.  One step further would be to sync with an external calendar, but I think it's an immediate need to be able to set subtasks within a task to re create themselves at the recurrence date.

Reposting comment.  I previously posted on a different thread, but based on Hugh's feedback, it is more appropriately aligned with this thread.

Beyond frustrated that Wrike cannot create a recurring task with corresponding recurring subtasks. This functionality is core to the entire purpose of a task management system.  We have so many client and regulatory situations that require monthly/quarterly/annual tasks with corresponding subtasks (to include dependencies and duration).  Duplication does not meet the need for this; these tasks need to be scheduled automatically

Side note:  All recurring tasks need to show up when scheduled, not just added to the list, it adds too much clutter to My to-do list.

At the end of the day, I need an answer from Wrike whether this will be added to the roadmap and when.  We need an answer, because if it is not going to be added, we need to find a different solution.

Our business relies on these tasks not falling through the cracks.

Hi Scott Harris, thank you for posting this again in this thread, as it means you will hear about updates for this specific suggestion as soon as I have one.

The Product team is still interested in this suggestion, but there are currently no plans to add this to the short-term roadmap. I'll be checking in again with the team soon, so as soon as I have any updates about this thread, I'll be sure to pass it on to you all.

If you have any other questions, be sure to let me know 😊

Yes pleeaasseee!!! This would be hugely helpful for us. Many of our users have asked for it, and I keep telling them to do workarounds. 

 

Would be a huge value add!

This is a necessary feature for my group. As many have said, we have so many monthly/weekly recurring tasks that need to be in sequence, that using the template or blueprint functionality is not efficient.

Agreed - this would be a game changer to be able to have subtasks remain in recurrent tasks!!!

I just assumed this was the case and later found out it wasn't!  We really need this feature!

Frustrated that there is nothing more than "we are currently looking" and "not currently on the roadmap".  This request/thread has been going since 2016.  If you are not going to implement this, please just say so, rather than just kicking the can down the street.

Hey everyone, a quick update here - 

The Product team is still interested in this suggestion, but due to other priorities, there are no plans to implement this idea this year. I understand that this will be disappointing, but rest assured that your input has been shared with the team, and that if there are any changes, I'll be sure to let you know.

Yes, we would like to be able to make recurring tasks with both subtasks and tasklists.

Any movement on this item?  As a work around all recurring tasks are kept at the same level.  We are using this to monitor a daily process with 7 steps each day.  So we are rapidly filling up a project with tasks that occur on different days.

Hello,

Chiming in here. It looks like it has been 3 years since this request was opened and it hasn't been moved off the back burner. How many upvotes are required to add this to your development roadmap? It's nearing 200 right now.

Thanks for looking into this.

Warm regards,

Ginger
