Recently, we introduced a helpful project management feature update that enables you to search a folder by its name. Today, we’ll share a tip that will help you save even more time on navigating your projects. You’ll find out how to increase your project management efficiency by getting instant access to your most frequently used folders.
Even though you have dozens of folders and subfolders in your workspace, most likely you use only some of them on a regular basis. If this is the case, you may want to pick out the most important items and keep them in a separate folder named “Favorites.” Those of you who use Wrike’s native apps for iPhone and iPad have already experienced how handy this solution is. In your Wrike workspace, it will take you only a few mouse clicks to make that happen!
First, create a folder called “Favorites” wherever you want. We believe that the most convenient solution would be to create it right in My Folders. Now you can add your most important project folders to your Favorites folder. To do it, just open them one by one in your workspace and type in “Favorites” in the “Included in” field.
That’s it! These project folders will instantly appear in your Favorites folder, and you won't need to scroll down the folder tree and unfold them one by one to find the specific one you need. You can do the same with some of your tasks and enjoy fast and easy access to the most important items in your workspace.
Your Favorites folder will be visible only to you, unless you decide to share it with someone. As always, when you include an item in several folders in Wrike, it is still the same task or folder, not a copy. So any change you make to a task or folder in your Favorites folder will be instantly applied to this item in all other locations.
We hope that today’s tip will help you keep the most important project information close at hand. Do you have your own tips and tricks to share with other users? Leave a comment to this post!
