Project and task discussions are a feature frequently requested by many of our users. We worked hard to create a neat solution that will let you add comments to tasks not only online but also via e-mail. This is a big step forward in project communications, enabling you to leverage the benefits of email and the web interface at full power. Let’s look at the details.
Tasks in Wrike' project management workspace now have a special tab called "Discussions" (1). There you can leave your comments (2) with images (3) and attachments (4) to the task and view messages of other team members (5).
When you update a task via email by adding firstname.lastname@example.org to the task recipients, Wrike intelligently identifies your comment (6) and adds it to task’s discussions (7).
All attachments to the comments are also visible from the "Files" tab (8). This lets you access important project information from both places.
How much does the useful upgrade cost you? Nothing! The feature is added to your subscription for free.

is there any possibility to do a full-text-search of the discussion items? It only seems to work for the tasks. Having this for the discussion would really enhance the usability of Wrike (e.g., looking for telephone calls and emails documented in the discussion via the email engine).
Thanks in advance, Dennis
