For those of who you use job numbers to organize your work, we now display a unique identifier for each task that you can use to search for and reference tasks.
Why People Use Wrike Job Numbers
1. Distinguishing between tasks with the same name
When task titles aren't enough, unique job numbers for every task will help your team stay on the same page. If your team frequently works on tasks with similar names you can refer to tasks by their job numbers to keep the conversation organized.
"Have you finished work on "Share campaign results, ID: 25133' yet?"
2. Quickly finding source files for printed materials
If your company prints fliers or any physical materials, include the job number for the task that contains the source file in small font at the bottom of your material. This way you'll be able to quickly and easily find source files for reprinting any materials just by going to Wrike.
"I need 5,000 extra copies of flier #54351."
3. As ticket numbers for Software Development or Support
Customer Support and Software Development teams need to reference and track the work they're doing for internal teams and external clients. Job numbers function as unique ticket numbers for these teams.
"What's the status of support ticket #24531?"
4. Syncing tasks with invoicing
When creating work invoices, use job numbers to reference Wrike tasks and the information contained inside.
"Refer to task #976342."
How to Take Advantage of Wrike Job Numbers
Job numbers are available in Table View, Task View, and Search. They are automatically assigned to tasks and cannot be edited. This way, every task in your account is assured to have its own unique job number, regardless of different viewing permissions across tasks and folders in your account.
Turn on job numbers for your tasks via the Table View. First, select the folder in your folder tree that needs job numbers. Then go to the Table View for that folder. Under the gear icon in the top left corner, select the "ID" column to make job numbers visible for all tasks in that folder. Repeat the process for any folder that needs job numbers.
Once job numbers are turned on via the Table View, they will always be visible on your tasks next to the name of the task author.
To search for tasks with a specific job number, put "ID:" before the number to search for it (e.g. ID:50782873).
