This template will help you get up and running quickly with Wrike. The guide below shows you how to:
- Break your product launch down into tasks, then prioritize and assign them
- Work on tasks and review the progress of each area using the Board view
- Plan your product launch project and track performance using the Gantt chart
- Track project progress using the dashboard
This template uses folders to represent three stages of a product release:
Feel free to add, rename, or delete any of these folders to customize this template to meet your needs.
Start by filling each folder with actionable tasks. Tasks can be assigned to one or more members of your team. This template includes some sample tasks that can be renamed or deleted as needed. To assign a task, select it from the list, click Add assignee, and select a member of your team. If the person is not in Wrike yet, simply add their email address and an invitation to join Wrike will be sent to them.
After a task has been assigned, click on the date selector to set the start and due date.
To get an overview of progress, click on the release stage in the folder tree on the left and then click on the Gantt Chart view. This displays the project and all tasks on an interactive and dynamic timeline. This birds-eye view can help you spot and avoid any bottlenecks or roadblocks to ensure you meet your deadlines. To adjust the length of any task, simply drag the due-date marker.
This template also includes a preconfigured dashboard that allows you to see which tasks are new, in progress, completed, on hold, or canceled. To customize this dashboard, click New Widget at the top of the screen and select from any one of our helpful widgets. These widgets are configured to display a variety of data so you can get all the critical information you need at a glance.
