Published by Nadia | Friday, 20 December, 2013As we talk to customers, especially large corporations, we often hear how they’d like to have customization options to help them brand their work in Wrike. Responding to these suggestions, we introduced branded e-mail notifications within the Wrike Enterprise plan.
Now you, as an admin, can add your company logo or a brand image to all work updates sent to your employees from Wrike.
Published by Anne | Wednesday, 21 August, 2013Despite that some people try to minimize the time they spend in their inbox, for most teams email remains the main business communication tool; and it looks like it's here to stay for many more years.
So, instead of "killing" email, we've always stuck to a more productive idea – making it more user-friendly and efficient so that info doesn't get lost and you stay on top of your projects easily. Today we're happy to introduce the new email notifications as another important step in this direction. Redesigned and upgraded, they bring the best of Wrike's collaborative and interactive Activity Stream into your inbox. Less clutter - more info! Read more...
Published by Anne | Monday, 12 August, 2013Having a central hub with up-to-date project data is key to efficient project management. When it comes to support tickets, it is much easier to turn them into actionable items and to track their progress if you keep them together with other tasks. Do you know that you can easily do this in Wrike? Recently, the ShopWorks team used Wrike API to create a helpful integration with Zendesk, a customer support app. They were kind enough to share the code, so your team can benefit from it as well. See how this integration can help facilitate your work!

On our forum, you also shared some cool ideas for perfecting these features so that they suit your needs even better.

Published by Anne | Wednesday, 10 October, 2012Some may say that e-mail is outdated and soon will be completely replaced by social media or other tools. However, the research we ran not long time ago shows the opposite: 58% of people in the U.S. still start their day by checking their inbox. Today, we have great news for all the Mac users who can’t live without this good old tool. The new add-in for Apple Mail turns e-mails into interactive tasks and brings the speed and ease of Wrike project management software right to your inbox! Read more...
Published by Xenia | Tuesday, 27 March, 2012As you may know, Wrike project management software can power up your e-mail with the Outlook add-in. It provides you with the ability to create, update and monitor tasks in real time – right from your inbox.
Creating new tasks is easy: you only need to click the large green plus button. However, by default this button can be found in the Home tab only. To have it always at hand, add the “New Wrike Task” button to Outlook’s Quick Access Toolbar. This way, the button will be displayed, regardless of the currently opened Outlook tab, and you’ll be able to create new Wrike tasks from any place in your Outlook in one click.
Here’s how it works:
- Go to the top left-hand corner in your Outlook and press the downward arrow.
- In the displayed menu, choose the More Commands option.
- In the window that pops up, click on the downward arrow to open the drop-down menu.
- And choose the Home (Mail) Tab option.
- Scroll down the alphabetical list of commands until you see the New Wrike Task option – you’ll easily recognize it by the green plus icon.
- Then click on the Add button.
- And then click on OK to save your choice in the Quick Access Toolbar.
Now you can create new Wrike tasks with one click from anywhere in your Outlook!
Published by Anne | Thursday, 22 December, 2011Are you a devoted Outlook user? If so, we bet you’ll be fascinated to unpack and try out a Christmas gift we prepared for you – our new Outlook add-in. It solves the e-mail chaos problem at a new level and brings everything you love about Wrike project management software to your fingertips in your Outlook inbox. Play the video right away to see the new add-in in action!
As you can see from this short demo, the new add-in lets you convert any e-mail into an interactive task literally in one click. But what we were striving for most of all when creating it is the elegant solution to the overloaded inbox problem! Whenever anyone on the team updates the task in Wrike, it automatically floats up in your Outlook inbox. This is the same task, not a copy or a change notification. You can simply forget about getting zillions of e-mails on the same subject! Now you see all the data brought together in a single interactive message that automatically shows up when a task is updated to keep your fingers on the pulse of the project.
At the bottom of the task you see the Activity Stream with all task changes – just the same as in Wrike. This way, you can instantly check the latest updates while still staying in your preferred e-mail client! It is handy and easy-to-use, and it saves hours of your precious time, otherwise taken away by having to check the numerous updates in separate messages.
You also can make changes to the task right from your Outlook account. Discuss things, reschedule, reassign, tag your tasks, upload images and documents, and even edit MS Office files without downloading them, all right in your inbox, the same easy way as you do it in Wrike.
Important! As you can see, the new Outlook add-in is completely different from the previous one, bringing many more helpful task management features to your favorite e-mail client. However, due to certain limitations in Outlook, the new add-in will not automatically sync Outlook to-dos with Wrike.
To install the new add-in, please go to the “Sync” tab in your account settings.
Published by Dasha | Tuesday, 11 January, 2011We finished 2010 with unveiling a couple of very helpful new project management features: the add-in for Outlook 2010 and the ability to export filtered task lists to Excel. In this post, we’ll introduce the first updates of 2011 that many of you were suggesting to Wrike’s support team.
Whenever you get a valuable project idea that doesn’t have to be realized in a fixed timeframe, you can instantly add it to your project backlog in Wrike without even leaving your inbox. To create a backlogged task via email, add the tag [backlog] in the subject of the message that you send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to create backlogged tasks often, Wrike project management software offers you another handy solution. You can simply adjust your account settings so that any email you send to Wrike without specifying a date turns into a backlogged task. To do so, click on the “Account” link in your project management workspace and go to the Personal profile tab. On that page, you can choose how you want Wrike to process emails with no date tags – either create one-day tasks for today, or add these tasks to the backlog. If you choose to create backlogged tasks by default, you can still add one-day tasks for today by adding the date to the email subject in the following format: MM/DD-MM/DD (or DD/MM-DD/MM if you have this date format set as the default in your account).
Another significant addition to Wrike’s scheduling functionality is that backlogged tasks are now reflected in the table view, as well as the list view. The new column in the table view – duration – lets you get a more accurate picture of your plans. By the way, you can easily move the columns by dragging and dropping them to adjust the table view to your preferences.
We hope these features will help you build agile plans and manage your tasks productively in 2011!
