Getting Full Work Context: Easy with Cross-Linking Tasks and Projects

With every new update, we strive to make Wrike an even more convenient collaboration hub that connects all your data together, so that any piece of work is at your fingertips when you need it. Today we’d like to introduce a handy improvement that helps you easily weave tasks and projects into the context of other assignments.With every new update, we strive to make Wrike project management software an even more convenient collaboration hub that connects all your data together, so that any piece of work is at your fingertips when you need it. Today we’d like to introduce a handy improvement that helps you easily weave tasks and projects into the context of other assignments.

Now when you paste the task link into another task description or the comment field, it will automatically appear as the task name. For instance, let’s say you want a designer to create a new mockup for the trade show, using the same outline she used the previous year. You simply insert the link to that task, and she understands the context of the assignment in one glance without even following the link to check what you are referring to.  At the same time, if she needs to refresh her memory of the task details, she only needs one click to open it.  Besides the title, the task status is reflected too. If the task has been completed already, the appropriate icon will appear next to the task name.

In the same easy way, you can insert links to whole projects, as well. If the folders have color coding, you will see an icon of the appropriate color together with the folder name. See how neat it looks in the screenshot.


This feature is particularly helpful when you need to cross-link several tasks or projects. As your project team will instantly see the titles, instead of links, there will be no confusion among multiple similar-looking URLs and no need to browse every single one in order to understand what the new assignment is about.

This small, yet helpful feature makes it easy for you and your project team to put together the full context of a particular assignment. Just one more thing before you try this feature in action – make sure that the tasks or folders you refer to are already shared with the assignees of the current task.
