User friendly IDs and URLs

I'm used in other tools to having a call which goes like

"So, now onto issue 123". 

Or posting a link to a milestone like mycompany.something.com/milestones/12

 

On Wrike task ids are not only hidden by default, but are 9 digits long. Nobody can remember that and even reading it out is error-prone.

And a link to a folder/sprint is like half a page long.

 

So my requests are:

  1. Ability to refer to a more useful local Id, not a Wrike-global unique id. I don't know, maybe even via a custom field if you could set it to auto-populate an incrementing value or something?
  2. Human-friendly URLs to projects and folders
  3. When typing in a task/comment, being able to get some sort of auto-suggest if I start typing ID/name of a task so I don't have to go search first.

Thanks for your consideration.

+1 vote for the custom ID as well - 9 digits is too long for our users.

Big +1.  Very hard to reference tasks in your team when you are forced to use only descriptions, which as Wrike grows in size, can start to get repetitive:  "Blog post..." could be in hundreds of tasks if you are a content manager.  Was a great feature of Jira that we tried to manage content calendars with before.  Please implement soon guys!  Even something like a setting to auto add the existing task ID to the title of a task, like what happens when you submit bugs in the request forms.

Thanks for the consideration!

Is there any update on adding this functionality? I'd also like to add that having this type of ID available on Wrike boards would be a bonus (similar to Jira).

Thanks in advance!

With shorter ID my company will definitely be able to use Wrike as an external git issue tracker.

The ID field should have options for full customization to make Wrike the best job management option out there. It exists in other apps and should not be a heavy lift.

Thank you

Is there an update on this enhancement request?  How about the ability to generate an automatic/sequential ID at the beginning of the task name.  Turn on/off functionality.

i.e

T-001 Task Name

This would allow the ID to be seen on the board view as well.

I currently do this manually.

I'm OK with the Wrike ID, and appreciate that it can be hidden, but it would be good to have a customized option as well.
