Raise your hand if you’d feel disconnected from your team if it weren’t for modern video communications platforms, like Zoom. During remote and hybrid work, without such technology, collaborating with your team would feel — dare we say — less human. Virtual backgrounds and emoji are fun and interactive during video meetings, but at the heart of it all, the beauty and power of Zoom is that it keeps us all connected and collaborating. Zoom is a natural fit for Wrike so it makes sense to align forces and add them to our growing list of integrations.

It also doesn’t hurt to have one less tool to toggle between. Zoom meeting participants can now coordinate on Wrike tasks in real-time during meetings without having to screen share or switch applications, an issue that has left many workers feeling frustrated. 

Context shifting, or toggling between applications to complete work, takes up a lot of time during the workday. In fact, a recent survey by Citrix and Pulse found that 59% of business leaders believe their employees require more than 10 applications or tools daily to effectively accomplish their work. Additionally, wasted time switching between applications was the number one reason (56%) business leaders and their employees experience frustration with apps.

Enter Actionable Meetings by Wrike

Wrike joined forces with the leader in modern enterprise video communications - Zoom Video Communications, Inc. - to develop Actionable Meetings by Wrike. The extension lets teams add Wrike’s work management features to any Zoom meeting, making it easy to collaborate in real time on existing Wrike tasks without having to toggle between applications.

With most organizations battling issues around employee engagement, productivity, and visibility, the Wrike and Zoom integration offers a seamless collaboration experience while ensuring meeting outcomes are captured against each task in a project. Through the use of Actionable Meetings by Wrike, employees can now stay on top of work and focus their efforts to drive successful projects that impact business goals. 

With Actionable Meetings by Wrike, users can accomplish the following directly from Zoom Meetings and the Zoom desktop client: 

  • Capture action items and notable takeaways from each meeting so next steps can be implemented immediately.
  • Assign task owners to action items so that roles and responsibilities are clear.
  • Set due dates to keep action items on track for completion.
  • Attach files that are relevant to the task at hand, such as visuals and documents, so version-control issues are avoided and everyone is working with the most up-to-date resources.
  • Add comments to track conversations around work.
  • Search tasks to find what you’re looking for on the spot.
  • Send follow-up action items to all meeting attendees to maintain momentum in between meetings.

This integration is not about adding another prominent name to our integration stack; it’s about driving convenience, enhancing collaboration, and making your work more efficient. Andrew Filev, Senior Vice President and Wrike General Manager, Citrix, says it best:

“The solution isn’t to introduce new technologies but to optimize existing ones — the ones employees love to use — and that’s just what we’re doing with the integration with Zoom. Actionable Meetings by Wrike combines two very powerful technologies to make live collaboration even more effective, and the outcomes and actions more clear. Efficiency and productivity improve, driving more successful outcomes for the business.”
