Emailing tasks into the required folder is now as easy as 1-2-3

There’s the good old way to email tasks into a particular folder by putting its name into the subject line, but what if there are several folders with the same name? To prevent any confusion or mistakes when emailing tasks, you can now use the folder’s unique ID number.

Are you wondering how you will know the ID number? This is easy – go to “Folder info” and click on the permalink right above the folder name.


Once you have the number, you can create tasks in this folder just by sending an email to wrike+into123@wrike.com, where 123 is the folder ID. If you add the folders that you use most often to your contact book, the process will be simplified to choosing a recipient.

Add comments to tasks while skipping the “Re:” step

Imagine the situation: you need to send an e-mail to your client and at the same time save it as an update to a task. In case you don’t want to confuse him with a long e-mail subject with brackets and other specific syntax, simply add wrike+taskID@wrike.com as a CC to your e-mail! 

To obtain the task ID, just copy it from the “Permalink” on the top left of the task pane.

You then add the ID number into the address line, write your comments in the body of the email, and that is it! No need to dig deep into your inbox for a particular task notification in order to reply!
