Recurring Folders

We have monthly projects that typically contain identical tasks month-on-month. 

While we can set up each task individually to recur, it would be great to have the whole project or folder of tasks recur so that they are included in a new month's folder, not lumped in with other tasks.

Just easier to organise things.

Hi Zach Jacobsen! Have you tried out Blueprints from Wrike Labs? With this, you can recreate folders and projects without having to input all of the tasks again.

Let me know if this helps!

@... Yup! We use them pretty regularly. The challenge is that it's not super effective when you have monthly cycles for 30+ projects as you'd have to create the folder for each one every month.

 

At the moment, we're duplicating template folders each month. which kind of works, but is a bit of a time sink.

Zach Jacobsen Thank you for this use case! I can see how this could be a lot of work. Your feedback has been passed on to the Product team 🙂

I'm also looking for a way to may project recur on a regular basis. We have many projects that recur monthly, quarterly, or annually. They all have many tasks that need to be completed before the project due date, sometimes weeks or months before the due date. Right now we have to remember when to activate a blueprint, and do it soon enough that the first tasks aren't already overdue by the time we make the project live. 

I'm seeing threads about this exact topic dating back as far as 2017...hoping we can get this soon!

I'm new to Wrike. I also have recurring projects with exactly the same tasks every month. (What business doesn't?) I clicked your link to Labs but Blueprint wasn't listed.

Hey Anne Asher, thank you for your use case. Blueprints is available for accounts with Business subscription and higher.

We have monthly services, so we have hundreds of "projects" that need to reoccur on a monthly basis. Yes we can launch a new "project" from a "blueprint" each month but that doesn't allow us to be able to forecast/predict future workloads. We need the ability to create recurring projects and/or folders.
