    I've had a similar problem.  I've used a custom status field on the sub-projects to filter reports/views by (I filter out anything flagged as a sub-project).  Not at all convenient but at least is a workaround.

    That's an interesting workaround. I may have to try that out to see how it works with our data. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm doing the same thing with Projects as Phases. It's basically functional, but it comes with limitations. For example, Projects sort themselves alphanumerically, so Design Phase shows up after Construction Phase.

    We add silly spaces to make the sub-projects move around into the correct sequence. Not elegant.

    Company-wide (there's just 4 of us) it would be nice to have a report or Timeline chart that showed all 15 of our projects' Design Phases. Since I'm the one focusing on that, I'd like to see and plan how the next six months of projects are going to need my attention in what order, and not have all the other phases in the way visually.

    This would I think be even useful for a larger office that has a production team, a marketing team, a design team, etc. - each team could focus on their chunk of work and turn on and off other teams' work as needed.

    Very interesting approach here. We were using "sub-"projects as phases and ran into reporting issues. We're moving away from the sub-projects route, but I'll be keeping this in mind for future projects!

    Hi Erick,

    What if you create a space called Design and then tag the projects design phases into it. The design phase would be visible in the original project and Design space.

    You may need to use folders to separate out the tasks

    This would be very useful and project phases aren't really elegantly handled in Wrike right now, as noted here.  There is a suggestion to use folders for them in some how-to stuff, but that seems not sufficient as the phases should have a start and end date. 

    Thanks!
