Attach an online file to a folder

Attaching files from Google Docs enables you to collaborate on files in real time with your team online. It’s very convenient, as the colleagues who share the task are always able to access the latest file versions and edit them online without downloading them.

To attach a Google doc to a folder in Wrike, press the "Folder Info" icon folder-icon.png in the pane next to the folder name. This will switch you to the folder details view.

Here click on the "Attach files" link 1 and select “from Google Drive" 2 from the drop-down menu. If you are not signed in to your Google account, do so in the pop-up window. If it’s the first time you are accessing Google Docs from Wrike, you will need to grant Wrike access to your Google account. Now you can create a new file 3 or attach an existing document, spreadsheet or presentation 4 . If you are creating a new file, enter its name, and the new file will open, so you can start working on it.


After you have finished editing the file, save it in Google Docs. This will create a link to your document in your task in Wrike. You and all the users who share the task with you will be able to access your online file by using this link and download the file to your computers 5 . To delete a file, click on the "delete" link 6 .


There is also an opportunity in Wrike to attach files directly from your Dropbox. This way, you can access the most up-to-date file version without a time consuming re-uploading routine. 

To attach a file from Dropbox, click on the “Attach files ” link right under the task description, then select “from Dropbox” 7 from the drop-down menu and choose the desired file 8 . A built-in photo gallery and search function is particularly handy in finding the right file. Even if you update the file in your Dropbox every couple of minutes, your teammates will access the most up-to-date version in Wrike.
