Today, Wrike announces Auto-Assigned Workflows - a new feature to automatically assign work to team members when it is ready for them to start. Now, customers can auto-assign workflow stages, and as Tasks enter each stage, new assignees are added and automatically alerted that they can start their work.

The approach helps teams deliver faster by eliminating all waiting time and preventing rework because items are not assigned until requirements and prior stages are complete. Instead, they can focus on current priorities, optimizing speed and quality, reducing 'task switching' time, and lowering stress.

Here's how it works.

Accelerate the Steps of Any Workflow by Auto-Assigning Each Stage

  • Define each stage of your workflow.
  • Assign each workflow stage to add 1 or more team members.
  • Alert assignees automatically as work enters each stage.
