Hello everyone 🙂
We are very happy to announce another exciting update to Wrike’s functionality - Space Workflows 🥳 Starting today, our team will begin to roll out this functionality to all accounts on our Business or higher plans.
What are Space Workflows?
Space Workflows is a new Space administration capability enabling fully independent customization of how each team or department works. Space Workflows empower team leaders who own the day-to-day processes, to seamlessly build and manage workflows for their team.
Why Space Workflows?
Using Space Workflows increases productivity. With Space workflows, you can delegate process management to each space admin, without the involvement of the account admin, who typically isn’t as familiar with each team’s specific processes and process changes.
How to Create Space Workflows?
Space admins can now create them right from the space settings:
- Switch to the Workflows tab.
- Click Add or create workflow button under the corresponding section.
- In the drop-down that appears, click Create new workflow.
- Here, you can name the workflow, add and edit statuses, add transitions, assignees, and approvals upon status change, and move statuses in-between status groups.
- Click Save to create a workflow.
How do Space Workflows help your Team?
Challenge: Processes can be rigid and may not fit every team's needs.
Solution: With Space Workflows, your workflows can be catered to the specific needs of a given space, ensuring that team members are selecting the right status options available to them and effectively moving work forward. Space workflows provide more flexibility, allowing each team to utilize a workflow that uniquely fits their needs. It also helps avoid confusion around which workflow each team should use.
Challenge: 'Process changes can only be executed by account admins.
Solution: Space Workflows empower space-level admin ownership to build and manage their team’s workflows based on their team’s custom needs.
Challenge: Team members may choose the incorrect status or workflow which can impact accurate reporting.
Solution: With Space Workflows, you can accurately assess the statuses of each task and project and trust the consistency of reporting to make strategic decisions.
📌Please note that the rollout of Space Workflows starts today and will take several weeks, so if you don’t see them in your account yet, you will soon have access to them 🙂
