Automatic Project Numbers

Hi Wrike,

Are there any plans moving forward to add automatic project numbers in to Wrike? So in our business when a change request comes in we give it a CR number. So CR-001, CR-002 and so on. Other systems we use allow this to be an automatically issued number. Would be interesting to know if any other users have requested this.

Cheers

Adam. ☺️

Hi Adam, during our on-boarding we also asked if something like this was in the works. We were told nothings coming as of now. Our "fix" is having blueprints with prefixes where we add in our job/project numbers. We've changed from automatically generated to a date based system.

Hi Katherine,

Yes it's just a bit of a pain not being able to set up automatic project numbers and going back to a manual system basically. Due to the fact we use CR prefix's throughout the business it will mean having to go back to a spreadsheet system to know what the next project number is. Let's hope its something they look at adding at a later date. As we currently use Jira for new requests i suppose we could continue using that for now an use integrate to pass the request through to Wrike from Jira.

I actually see this feature as a deal breaker for many.  I would think many would just stop considering Wrike rather than go through the effort for the community to reach enough votes.

This topic looks similar to

Have the ability to pull in Project ID# to the field via request form with other mapped title fields

from 2017

 

I'd be happy if I could simply make a Google Sheet of sequential project numbers that I could reference. It really could be any list, from any source that could be referenced.

Lisa the problem is, this topic touches on a feature our company needs too, but it took multiple searches for me to find under "Automatic Project Numbers" when I was searching things like "Sequential Numbers" and "Auto Fill Numbering" and never finding this. I've been searching for half an hour. How are posts supposed to get 60 upvotes if they can't be found?

Our company uses metal dies and each new die is assigned a sequential number. A number of different people can assign a new number to a die, but the number must come from a single source so that different dies aren't named with duplicate numbers. This has always been done with a spreadsheet that people signed into in order to claim the next available number. We have now created a request form in Wrike so that our sales partners can request the new art asset that causes each die to be ordered, bypassing the need for information to be entered on our spreadsheet -- except that we still need the sequential die numbers. If Wrike could generate these sequential numbers as each form was submitted, this would streamline our workflow and increase our efficiency tenfold.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Michelle Hammond! You're correct, the search system we currently have isn't perfect. We do keep that in mind when thinking of future enhancements for our Community. Thank you for flagging this with us.

Regarding the voting system, the number of votes helps the team understand the popularity of different suggestions, so votes are important. At the same time, all feedback in this forum is being passed on to the team, regardless of the number of votes. 

We'll think of ways on how to make your experience here better. For now, please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you're interested in other topics as well. I'll be happy to recommend some threads for you to upvote 🙂
