Allocate time on behalf of other team members
Wrike currently does not have significant functionality that prompts people to ensure they correctly allocate time and therefore, offline systems are relied upon to remind people to record time on jobs.
As is expected, you don't want to close a job off unless you know everyone has allocated their working time to it.
For example, is "Team Member A" and "Team Member B" both have spent 1 hour on a job, however only "Team Member B" has allocated their time - for the job to be closed, one of two things needs to happen:
- I have to log into "Team Member A's" account and add the time via that or;
- I have to call them (and then wait) for them to do it themselves.
Would be much easier if I could just add the time in for other members, as an admin.
This would improve our use of Wrike a lot! People are unexpectedly resistant to allocating time, and we've tried percentage and hours allocation, and neither changed the rate of participation. Lots of people do not want to risk being 'wrong.' Allowing others to provide estimated hours would encourage more use.
Very good idea. Team leaders of our company need this, too. Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks in advance.
We also would like to integrate this into our workflow. We want our office manager to allocate hours for holidays etc. on behalf of any team member so that Wrike can calculate availability and the team member does not need to manually change their calendar (which always gets forgotten).
The feature could be really of help...
