Hi Edwin, thanks for reaching out 🙂
Using Templates, you have to create a zTemplates Folder, create Projects in it, map out Tasks and subfolders and assign users to them (they'll get notifications), change all Task statuses to On Hold (again, notifications will be sent, dependencies can not be added) and then duplicate Projects from zTemplates to launch work (here, no notifications will be sent).
Using Blueprints, you'll get a separate area in the Workspace to create Projects, you can map out Tasks, assign users to them (no notifications), set any status to Tasks (was not possible before, notifications are not sent, can add dependencies), make any other change to assigned Tasks  (notifications are not sent), and duplicate Projects from Blueprints to launch work (smart notifications are sent in this case). More info on Help Center and in the Community post on Blueprints.
Please let me know if you have any questions 🙌

So in what situation would a template be preferred over a blueprint?  It seems that blueprints are the way to go from this explanation?  Our users hate when they get tons of notifications for something that is not an active project....

 

Also, can you create tasks from a blueprint via request forms?  We use request forms extensively so ideally I want to create a series of tasks based on a request form from a blueprint.

@Ivan Hi, thanks for your question 🙂

Blueprints are an improved way for on-hold work and work that needs to be used as templates. Please check out the feature, it would also be great to hear your feedback on it 🙌

You can set up a Request Form to create a Task or Project from a Blueprint. In that case, every time someone uses the form to submit a Request, a Task or Project is created from the nominated Blueprint.

Any questions, please get back to me here

To confirm, Lisa, are you saying I cannot create a Template with dependencies? And I would need to re-create the whole web of dependencies every time I create a new Project from my Template?

Hi @Claire, sorry, I meant that after the tasks' statuses are changed to "On Hold", dependencies cannot be added. At the same time, before changing the statuses, you can add dependencies, but you won't be able to see them on the Gantt Chart when the tasks are On Hold. Here's a useful Templates guide on Wrike's blog, please check it out when you have a minute 🙂

I wonder if you've already used the Blueprints - I'd be very curious to hear your feedback 🙌

Thanks for posting!
