[Status: Not Planned] Code formatting in task descriptions

The original POST: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000157409--Coming-Soon-Code-formatting-in-task-descriptions-and-comments

From: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/profiles/2977694605-Tim-Martin

Date: January 11, 2017 16:27 - YESS JANUARY 2017 AND WE ARE on FEB 2019 - YES WRIKE IS FAST, OR NOT. 

Maybe Wrike team takes the same time to load a task description to make a feature. 

Ok, just creating the same post because the original one the comments was closed. 

Could you please enable users to format text in both descriptions and comments as code?  Similar to applying the <pre> and <code> HTML tags, any text a user formatted as code would be displayed in a monospace font with long blocks contained within a scrollable element.

Suggested mechanisms for implementation include:

  • Dropdown selections in the GUI for code formatting.
  • Single tick marks for inline code formatting, e.g., `code`
  • Triple tick marks to demark the start/end of a code block, e.g., ```multi-line code block```

Bonus points for:

  • Code syntax highlighting.
  • Full support of the Markdown syntax.

4 years of this request, people making it very clear it's an absolute need, and you still can't find the time and resources? Get a freelancer on it, please, something to get this one through!

Thank you for supporting here Stevie Kirk, I understand that this is disappointing that code formatting in descriptions isn't planned for now. I'm passing your feedback to our Product team, and if we get an update in the future, we'll make sure to let you know.

Is it planned to implement this feature in the near future, if so when?

Hannes Treml Not to be the bearer of bad news, but this feature is almost certainly never going to be implemented. I've been following this thread for a year at this point, and we've heard everything from "Not enough time" to "It's not a popular enough feature". My understanding is that features are chosen almost exclusively by popularity. This request is already 4+ years old, so unless every dev team using Wrike suddenly comments in and likes all the comments in this thread, it'll be another 4+ years before it hit's anyone's development queue.

Hey folks, thanks a lot for your continued support for this suggestion!

Please let me share some detail on how this Product Feedback forum works. We have a voting system here where any Wrike user can upvote a suggestion when visiting the Community. There are other ways to let us know your feedback, and the Community is one of them. We have a process for reporting all suggestions, feedback, and votes from this forum to our Product team, and they continuously review all of this data. 

Once any suggestion reaches the 60 votes threshold, we add a Product status to it. You can check out more info on that and on the list of statuses in this post. The status for this particular suggestion is currently 'Not planned'. The team has been reviewing and continues to receive the feedback here, but they can't prioritize it over other planned releases and enhancements. If we do have an update for this suggestion in the future, we will let you know about it here in this thread.

Our team can't commit to working on all or even most of the suggestions in this forum, but at the same time, feedback from this channel is still important to them. As an example, here's the list of Community-generated suggestions that the team has released last year.

I hope this info was helpful, but if you have any questions, please let me know 🙂

Grayson Lorenz I like your idea of getting a whole team to upvote, sadly I already tried that with another request (logging half day holidays in Wrike). My whole Studio upvoted and pushed it way above the threshold, yet still, the same response was given. Were just voting for it to be 'discussed', it seems.

It is really unfortunate that people have to lobby like this for a paid software feature request. It is also driven from so many teams needing this kind of capability in their day-to-day operations and making Wrike work for ALL teams across their company. In effect, we are trying to make Wrike more valuable.

Unfortunately, the wrike team doesn't really care about any of that. I will keep this in mind when my wrike contract comes up for renewal and look for other platforms that do.

Lisa - Thanks for your stock reply. I have seen the same reply many times over when people express their frustration at your process. Again, I hope you can take this feedback about your process to your product and leadership team, and let them know that it is frustrating, but I am not holding my breath. Being an engineer by background myself, I can go out on a limb and speculate that this is a very easy feature to implement since you allow other kinds of formatting in the task descriptions.

Lisa The thing I find most interesting is that because Wrike doesn't have code formatting it likely means that your own developers don't use Wrike for planning and task management. I can't imagine making a Dev team work without code formatting. Is this true? If so do you have a recommendation for a project planning tool that works well for people who work with code, maybe JIRA? If your developers do use Wrike, can you ask them for suggestions for how they work without code formatting?

For what it's worth, I lobbied successfully for our team to stop using Wrike over this issue. We use Jira now.

Hello again, folks! I understand your disappointment about this suggested functionality not being planned by our Product team. Please rest assured that all your feedback here is being reported to the team. Right now, there's nothing more that we can do apart from passing on your feedback and asking for regular updates on the topic. Our team has many exciting enhancements and new functionality planned this year, and many of them are those that the Community has also suggested. We'll be letting you know about them in the coming weeks and months.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

I can't believe that this feature is still not implemented for 3 years ... 
This must be a cost effective feature. I don't know services which doesn't support code formatting. It's a standard HTML tag.
