Occasionally we write blog posts where multiple people contribute. Since our idea of having a gladiator arena where contributors would fight to the death to win total authorship wasn’t approved by HR, this was the compromise.
We recently improved the dashboard interface, so it allows you manage your tasks easier and faster. The dashboard displays the tasks assigned to you that are overdue or due within a week. So you can easily decide what task to tackle first, the dashboard contains the information regarding the task priority, due date or how many days it is overdue. Additionally, parent folders are shown near each task, so you can quickly get the context of the task. The dashboard allows you to manage tasks the following ways: 1) Mark the task as completed by clicking on the check box on the left of the task name. 2) Reschedule the task by clicking on the pencil icon. Once the changes are made, hit the “Save” button. 3) Delete the task by clicking the recycle bin icon on the left of the task name. 4) View other task details, such as description, attachments, etc., by clicking on the task title.
We promised you the big news, so here it is. The last week was marked by several very special events. First, we participated in the Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco, the biggest and the most popular conference in our industry, and had fantastic success there. Second, we are proud to let you know that our news was published on Forbes.com. Yet the most important thing last week was the spectacular unveiling of Wrike’s new version, which was released in beta. The new Wrike is here, and it will redefine your project management and collaboration experience. With this new release, your favorite project management software is turned into a top-notch, e-mail-integrated, real-time project collaboration and productivity solution. We totally rethought the user interface and added several very simple, but incredibly powerful, features that will turn your team into project productivity rock stars. Here are the highlights of the newest and best ways to manage your projects via e-mail and the Web: Faster Performance, Clean and Intuitive User Interface The new Wrike is designed for speed and productivity. Every action — like creating a task or a project, assigning it to a team member, sharing project data with a team, or attaching a file — is done in a click or two. The new streamlined interface was developed based on extensive usability studies and deep analysis of Wrike users’ feedback. We want to thank all of you who shared your thoughts and ideas on how we can make Wrike a better solution. Unparalleled Personal and Team Productivity We enhanced the dashboard and turned it into a powerful, yet extremely easy to use, personal productivity tool. Upon opening the dashboard, you immediately see what you should be working on today and get real-time updates from your team members. From now on, it will be amazingly easy to coordinate the work of your team and closely follow the progress of multiple projects. Social Project Management Wrike’s new version takes the best of social networking and applies it to project management to maximize the productivity of your whole team. We introduced avatars to bring a visual experience to your team’s online interactions and emphasize the social part of your teamwork. We believe that, thanks to this feature, your project management platform becomes more engaging, which unquestionably results in growing efficiency in your project collaboration. Avatars also make your online workplace much friendlier and fun to use. Real-Time Insight into Projects The new Wrike gives you the ability to simultaneously see your tasks and projects compiled in a list and visualized on a Gantt chart for project planning. The list view provides you with the most important details about any particular task, including due dates, task duration and the people responsible for it. The Gantt chart pane visualizes all of the team’s changes to project plans in real time. The new timeline is the best way to get a 1,000-foot overview of your projects and your whole business. These are just the highlights of the changes you’ll experience in the new version. We plan to write more about each of the new features and tell you how you can use them to maximize your team’s productivity. The best news is that you are able to check the elegant new design and test-drive the cool new features right now! Simply log in to the beta and explore the new Wrike. You know that “your feedback is important” is not just a polite phrase to us. We’re building this app for thousands of our users, and every one of you has the power to make Wrike suit your needs better by sharing your opinion about the product with us.
When you click on the "hours spent" link in the task details, you will see the text box right below the field for entering hours. You can use this text box to specify what exactly you have done so far. In the time report, you will see not only a list of time entries for each task, but also have a clue about what the time was spent on. This way, you can always provide your clients with a thorough report of what you are billing them for and ask the same from your contractors. More new handy features are on their way to come before Christmas! In the meantime, if you have ideas of what can make you more productive, please let us know at our voting forum.
