Wrike Introduces New Task Groups to Help Keep Important Items in the Frame
When we are working on large and often complex projects, it can be difficult for a project manager to attention on those activities that are the most important, without them getting lost in the bigger picture.
Wrike has a number of different features that can help project managers filter and focus on individual and ranges of tasks, such as, showing , through a Dashboard widget all the activities scheduled for next week or showing the tasks for action on the current date. To take these, and other, useful task views a stage further, the team at Wrike has introduced this month, a new grouping feature. This new grouping feature takes your project tasks and applies groupings and labels, according to dates, allowing you to see a schedule quickly.
The majority of tasks in each folder are organized by priority for attention:
- tasks planned for today
- tasks planned for this week
- tasks planned for this month
- later planned, which also includes tasks in the backlog
But, with the new feature, within each folder, the first grouping of tasks you see, are the ones that you need to focus on, with overdue tasks at the top to help you keep control of your deadlines and milestones.
With the grouping, you can focus on the important areas at any one time, without worrying about losing other, less significant tasks that may become more important as time goes on. And, remember, these groups are visible when sorting the task list in date order!
As part of this latest improvement, the two original date filtering criteria: start date and due date, have now been combined to produce a single date criterion: ‘by date’.
Wrike is a leading on demand project management tool allowing the management of up to 50 different projects at one time.
