It's Friday at 4:00 pm, and you have to deliver your weekly project status report in 30 minutes. You're stressed out waiting on updates from your team. It's a tightrope walk: on one hand, you want the latest info to be included, on the other, you don't want to deliver the report late to executives and clients.
Agile teams approach Reports differently. Instead of creating a parallel process for reporting the progress of sprints, managers design a smooth workflow for the team, with a single field to update status. Then they share a transparent report into that workflow: a real-time, single source of truth. Teams are empowered to update tasks as they go. Management can view the report anytime to see where things stand.
Wrike recently launched Shared Interactive Reports to instantly provide that real-time view to teams, execs and clients. But you still want to make sure that tasks are updated regularly and that managers review project status at least once a week.
Today, Wrike released Scheduled Report Reminders to solve this problem.
Now, your team can receive scheduled reminders in their Wrike Inboxes and via email (e.g. Friday at 2:00 pm before a stand-up meeting). This reminder links directly to the report where your team can click into tasks to update them quickly. Your senior management team and clients can subscribe to a reminder (e.g. Friday at 4:30 pm) to see the latest updates each week, and provide feedback to you. And everyone can move on with their Friday evening, stress-free.
