Wrike Announces Integration with Microsoft Teams

March 14, 2017

Integration enhances collaboration for task and workflow management in chat-based workspace SAN JOSE, Calif.-- Wrike, a work management software for high-performance teams, today announced its integration with Microsoft Teams, the chat-based workspace in Office 365. The integration allows Wrike to offer powerful collaborative work management tools to Office 365's 85 million monthly active users. Teams users will be able to easily create tasks and manage workflows directly from the chat-based interface, making conversations in Teams more productive and actionable. They will also be able to access a unique visualization of their work schedule and timeline (Gantt chart). As collaboration becomes more complex due to an increasingly distributed workforce, it's now crucial for businesses to adopt the latest work management technologies. This will help users to better communicate and share content within the context of work. With Teams and Wrike, Office 365 users will have more tools for purpose-driven collaboration, regardless of approach or location. “Collaboration is much more cross-functional and difficult to navigate today than in years past, especially at the enterprise level,” said Wrike CEO and Founder Andrew Filev. “Microsoft’s commitment to helping people and organizations achieve more aligns with our own vision of making teams insanely productive. Whether it’s marketing, operations, or IT, we want to help teams, and collectives of teams, work better together by converging their communications tools with work management technology.” With this integration, Teams users can:

  • Create projects and tasks - Build new projects within Teams and see all tasks as they appear in Wrike; add any Wrike project as a tab in a Teams' channel.
  • See a visualization of project schedules - Get the full picture of task schedules in a timeline view on a Gantt chart.
  • Modify tasks within Teams - See task details with rich formatting and images; make changes, like updating status, assignee, due date and task comment, from the Teams' interface.
  • Receive Wrike notifications - Stay on top of all projects with notifications delivered into Teams chats via an Office 365 Connector.
