Wrike’s users benefit from the timeline feature that allows them to plan projects and reschedule tasks with drag-and-drop support. You can drag the task bar on the chart to change the task duration, start date, or end date. Once any change is made, your team members are instantly notified about it via e-mail, RSS, or iCal feed.

Task dependencies, an important project management feature, have been launched this week. Wrike automatically links tasks, so that rescheduling a top task cascades down to its dependent tasks, immediately displaying the downstream effects on the entire project. This results in a far more accurate and maintainable project plan. 

How task dependencies work.
  • Log into your Wrike workspace.
  • Switch to the Timeline tab.
  • Expand folders if necessary.
  • Point the cursor over the top right corner of the task bar. A small triangle appears.
