Mobile project management in Wrike with BlackBerry

Published by Daria   |  Tuesday, 21 August, 2007
There are thousands of situations when you are not in the office and don’t have access to a computer with an Internet connection. But if you have your BlackBerry, Treo, other PDA phone, smart phone or any mobile device supporting e-mails, you can easily manage your projects in Wrike even if you are in a meeting or at the airport, waiting for your plane.

Instant information on your project progress
In Wrike, you manage and plan your projects via e-mail. You instantly get information on the progress of your projects. We’ll send you an e-mail notification if there are any changes in the details or status of a task made by your colleagues.

Create tasks in seconds
You can complement your getting things done with Wrike system by using a BlackBerry.
For example, a task pops up, and it can’t be completed in 2 minutes. You decide whether to delegate the task or defer it. Your next action is to put the task into Wrike in order to remember it and get it done. With a BlackBerry, you can create tasks in Wrike in seconds on the go:
• you e-mail the task directly to wrike@wrike.com and process it later;
• or delegate the task to your team, adding wrike@wrike.com to the CC field of your email.

So you can easily and effectively manage and create tasks anywhere with no need of a laptop computer.

Never forget anything
You’ll also get reminders of your overdue tasks on your BlackBerry, which is always with you, so you are sure to not miss or forget anything important. Wrike and BlackBerry (or another mobile device supporting e-mails) let you work and collaborate on your projects from wherever you are. You don’t have to install anything or browse your personal Webspace to always stay in the loop.

    I've followed the link to this post and I'm glad I did it. It got me thinking. I'm going to try your free version, because I like the idea of email notifications. This could be a nice add-in for my GTD attempts.
    It’s great when you tell people how to use your tool in different situations and not only describe its features.

    I just signed up for wrike bc basecamp wasn't allow me to structure my to do's in the GTD format, so I'm excited to see wrike was developed with that system in mind. I'm trying to consolidate all my to do's into a single place, ideally my blackberry since I have it with me at all times. So how do I view all my wrike tasks from my blackberry?

    Sireesha,
    We are glad that Wrike suits your needs.
    We’re working on a couple of features that will help you manage a task list from e-mail (including BlackBerry):
    • We will allow you to change the task content by replying to task-related e-mails.
    • We will send you a daily summary of your tasks (overdue/today) by e-mail. This summary will have one-click hyperlinks to mark tasks as complete or reschedule them.

    We also always welcome more e-mail oriented feature requests, unless they make the system too complex.

    More sophisticated support for mobile devices is in our roadmap. We will probably release the first mobile version within the next 8-12 months.

    I like your offering quite a bit and have signed up my entire team, after having evaluated Basecamp and a potential Share Point installation.

    A dedicated iPhone app, however, would be extremely helpful.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Hi Luca,

    The iPhone app is in the works.

    Is a dedicated blackberry application on the horizon?
  • Published by Andrew Filev, Saturday, 13 June, 2009
    It is. Both iPhone and Blackberry apps are in the works now.

    Hi,

    I am currently using TaskMerlin for my small, 3-person company's project/task management solution; however, it is a desktop/server-based app and I really need a web-based app with either an dedicated iphone app or a iphone-compatible web interface.

    After substantial time and energy, I have nailed down the contenders to Wrike and/or Nozbe. Can you please share where you are in terms of coming out with an iPhone (and/or iPad) app?

    Calvin,
    Thanks for your interest in Wrike! iPhone app is in the works and will approximately be delivered in a month.

    Daria -

    That's great news. Do you happen to know whether the iPhone app you folks are building will also work on the iPad?

    Thanks again for your speedy reply!

    Hi Guys

    I love Wrike and have my entire team on it - but not being able to use it on the iPad has become a huge problem for us. If this app doesn't come out soon, it could be a deal-breaker. Any updates on when it will be available?

    Thanks!
