Imagine being able to tap into the collective insights of thousands of the world’s leading teams. Or picture being able to get private coaching to the learn the ins-and-outs of your favorite tools. What if you could share your thoughts directly with engineers and designers who could transform your ideas into reality?
Think this all sounds too good to be real? Think again. It exists, and all in one place. The Wrike Community is your portal to unlocking the true value of Wrike. This is where you can interact with our team and other high-performing teams worldwide with a commitment to Operational Excellence.
Here are five immediate benefits from joining the Wrike Community:
1. Learn Tips and Strategies From Other Teams
Where: Best Practices Section
More than 16,000 of the world’s high-performance teams use Wrike to plan their projects and collaborate on work. Each of these teams uses Wrike a little differently, taking advantage of Wrike’s flexibility to customize it to their needs. If you’re looking to get the most out of the tool and learn from other top performers, this is your new hangout spot.
For example, the University of Notre Dame posted their own “How to Get It Wrike” post with guidelines for how their team should use Wrike. The post has helped other teams dive in and figure out the best way to use Wrike in their organization.
Bailey Burke, one of our Green Belt contributors, was quick to chime in: “Thank you for sharing this, [it's] great to see other ways other companies are communicating Wrike to their team members. Dury's link in her reply was extremely helpful as well. This was the first time I saw the playbook.”
2. Give Feedback to Our Team
Where: Product Feedback Section
Wrike was built to help people become insanely productive, so we’re always interested in hearing their thoughts. The Wrike Community is the absolute best channel to make your voice heard. If you’ve got an idea for a new feature or have some constructive criticism of an existing one, post it under “Product Feedback” and our developers will be sure to see it. We can’t always implement everything we see, but posting here will get it on our radar so we can consider it for a future update.
For instance, Krista requested we add Word docs to Proofing and Approvals. This sparked a discussion among the members. From those discussions, we came to understand why this feature was necessary for our customers and what they wanted from it. So the product team went to work and made this feature a reality.
3. Get Help From Experts
Where: How to Section
We’ve all been there. You try everything but nothing seems to work, leaving you stuck. If you’ve hit a dead end and can’t seem to find the answer to your problem, post your question in our “How to” area. The Wrike Community is made up of thousands of Wrike experts who are ready and willing to provide guidance or walk you through a solution.
Sometimes the answer is right under your nose. For example, one of our members, Brice, had a quick question about duplicate request forms. A short time later, another one of our Green Belts, Maurice, came through with a simple fix.
There’s no such thing as a dumb question in the Community. If you’re stuck or confused, there are thousands of friendly people ready to help give you a hand.
4. Learn How to Supercharge Wrike By Connecting It with the Rest of Your Toolbox
Where: API Integrations Section
Wrike is pretty powerful on its own. But when combined with other tools, it can take your workflow to a whole new level of awesome. Our engineering team works hard to ensure Wrike integrates with hundreds of the most powerful apps that might be a part of your project management stack.
To learn more about how to connect Wrike with all of your favorite software, check out the “API Integrations” page. This is where all you technical folks can learn about and discuss the ins-and-outs of our API, get help with integrations, and nerd out.
5. Get the Inside Scoop About What’s New and Coming Next
Our international team is always planning new events, product launches, and other exciting projects. To be among the first to know about all of this cool stuff, you’re going to want to check out the “Brought to You By Wrike” area frequently.
For example, Stephanie, one of our Community Team Leads, just posted a list of upcoming Wrike events in 2018.
