[Status: Not planned] Auto add time spent on subtask to parent task

When working on a subtask, I want that time to be auto-added to the parent task because currently I have to add up the times from multiple subtasks and add them to the parent task

Hi Byron Black, welcome to the Community! 🙂

Task Effort is available in the Wrike for Professional Services package and Wrike Resource add-on. To roll up Effort for tasks in Table view, find the Effort column, hover over it, and click the roll-up icon. You can also find it by right-clicking on the top of the Effort column and selecting "Roll-up".

Time spent rollup is available on Business and higher accounts. This column on the Table view allows you to see how much time was spent on any selected task. For tasks within projects, you can roll up the values and see the total number of hours spent on the project. To do so:

  1. Open the project you want to roll up time for in the Table view. If you need to roll up time for multiple projects, open the project, folder, or space where all the projects live.
  2. Enable the "Time spent" column so it's visible in the table.
  3.  
  • To roll up time for one project, hover over the cell in the "Time spent" column and click the "Enable rollup" icon that appears.
  • To roll up time for all the projects in the table, click on the caret next to "Time spent," hover over "Rollup," and select "Enable for all projects."
  • You'll see the total number of hours spent on a project in the cell.

Hope this helps!

This is another ongoing shortcoming of the Task/Subtask relationship that you guys have working well in the Project/Task set up.  Another is the inability for subtasks to affect Projects start and end dates.  Really hoping you guys get this all unified as the manual work we still have to do around this planning and updating in Wrike gets to be cumbersome, and other tools are fixing this as we speak!

Lisa now we just need to get it to the parent task level :) At least as a global setting option!

Thank you for reaching out here Andre Herrero! I've checked with the team, and for now, they don't have this in their short-term plans. I'll let you know if that changes in the future.

Did this ever get resolved? We have general tasks that start and stop because of other priorities. We are trying to use sub tasks to manage this and while it is successfully adding the hours to our workload dashboard, you cannot actually see the hours. 

For example, we have a parent task that runs for 20 days and we expect to spend 10 hours on it. We are using effort to show capacity. We are not recording real time. At a parent task, this plans at 0.5 Hours a day, but that is not how we will spend our time.

I removed the effort from the parent task and created 4 sub tasks with 2.5 hours effort on 4 specific days. That effort does roll up to our workload dashboard properly now, but we cannot see the sub-tasks/effort by day in that view. We only see the parent task with zero hours which is misleading. 

Any ideas?
