Wrike, in its turn, is flexible by its nature and, therefore, can be easily modified to become truly yours. We invite you to take a walk with us through this short customization guide and quickly shape Wrike to both your personal and professional needs.
1. Adjust Wrike to your tastes
Come out of the dark
In Wrike, the avatar is a great way to make online communication with your team much more personal, and it also helps you instantly spot who is responsible for a task and who left a comment.
So go ahead, find your best photo and let your team get inspired by your broad smile and sparkling eyes. : ) To upload an avatar, simply go to your profile settings by clicking on your name in the top right-hand corner of your workspace.
Parlez-vous Wrike? (Oui!)
People from 55 countries choose Wrike to collaborate effectively and get more things done together. That's why it was so important for us to make sure that non-native English speakers also feel comfortable using Wrike. So now you have a chance to use Wrike in your native language! Just go to your profile settings and choose it from the “language” drop-down menu. If the language you need is not in the list yet, feel free to join our translation community and contribute to the translation process!
What time is it?
While you are in your profile settings, don’t forget to check that your time-zone settings are set correctly, as this may affect your tasks’ due dates and the time of receiving your daily to-do e-mails.
2. Adjust Wrike to your work habits
How much of a news-geek are you?
It’s always rewarding to be the one who learns the news first, isn’t it? That’s why Wrike constantly keeps you up-to-date with the latest changes in your projects by sending instant notifications to your e-mail.
However, if you prefer to get your news dose once a day, simply go to your profile settings and change the notification frequency from “immediately” to “daily digest.” And if it suits you better to follow the updates in real-time in the Activity Stream, you can always cancel the notifications by choosing “none” in the same drop-down menu.
Ready for your daily agenda?
Many of us start our workday with a quick inbox check to get a hold of the current situation. And to help you cover all the nuances of the coming workday, Wrike sends you a daily agenda, and what time to schedule it is up to you! No matter if you are an early bird or a night owl, just schedule your to-do lists to arrive at the time when you feel most productive! To do so, simply go to your profile settings, scroll down and choose the preferred time. And although it’s a very top-notch way to stay on track with your tasks, you can always switch it off by simply choosing the “don’t send” option.
3. Adjust Wrike to your expertise
Add custom widgets
Wrike’s dashboard conveniently gathers the most important tasks from across the workspace: tasks planned for today and this week, overdue tasks, etc. But what if you want to focus on a particular cut of information? You may want to monitor tasks within a particular project or your teams’ tasks for the current week. With Wrike, you can access the needed data with a couple of clicks, as you can easily create a custom widget to aggregate the relevant tasks in one spot and shape your dashboard to your expertise.
Pick your Favorites
Wrike makes it easy for you to handle even multiple projects. To quickly move between them, we recommend you to keep the folders you frequently use in a separate folder called “Favorites.” It’s also very easy to keep your most important tasks gathered from different folders there. This way, the needed tasks will be just a click away and, if you wish, no one but you will see them. ;-)
Slice-and-dice the latest updates
Wrike’s Activity Stream is the slickest way to not only stay up-to-date with the project progress, but also discuss tasks and issues in real time. Want to see what your team has been up to lately? Or maybe just want to check the updates in the tasks assigned to you? Simply apply different Activity Stream filters and see the news cut you need!
We hope that this short customization guide will not only make your work more efficient and pleasant, but also make Wrike feel truly yours!
