It's such a simple and effective tool! If you need an app to safely store your To-do's and make sure you stay on top of things, this is it. You can divide tasks lists into folders (like "home" and "business"), share the lists with co-workers, set notifications, even mark items as a priority. It's great for smaller, day-to-day tasks but if you need something to manage a bigger project or a team, you should look into more robust project management tools. Although this is a great app, it cannot replace tools like TeamWork, Basecamp etc. But they work great together

Wrike

Wrike is great! One piece that is really nice is the ability to customize the views - so if you have team members who want to see a spreadsheet of tasks (like Smartsheet), or someone who just wants a basic list (like Asana), or wants a Gantt chart, or kanban board (like Trello), or if they want to prioritize by dragging (like Jira) - Wrike does all of this. I don't think Wrike is as suited for dev teams as Jira, or if all your entire team wants is just a list of tasks. But for anything else, I would say Wrike is one of the best, if not the best, options.

Pros

Microsoft

  • Wunderlist is what you need for your to do lists. It's really simple to use.
  • Allows you to set due date to your lists, share them with your team and/or create a folder to divide and organize all your list set
  • Also, Wunderlist is compatible with all platform and devices. So you can always be updated on your list or work on them from wherever you are and with all the devices you have.

Wrike

  • Task assigning to colleagues
  • Good overview about resources and resource management
  • All projects and tasks in one place - good overview for upper management and portfolio management
  • With a self-set-up workflow for tasks and projects, Wrike can be configured very well to the company processes

Cons

Microsoft

  • Viewing more than one task at a time.
  • Email forwarding tasks - sometimes can be buggy and not always smooth.
  • Option to show more detail on a task without clicking task - example: being able to see attachment without clicking on task to view.

Wrike

  • Navigating through the system with new features is awful. If you happen to miss the hundreds of updates, then you are at a loss for how to perform routine tasks.
  • Signed up for the course for Silver Certification and still is a nightmare to navigate- it messed up my login credentials, and I'm still not able to access the course.

    It's working, and doing precisely what we selected it for. The only hesitation is if Microsoft suddenly drops the platform.

    Wrike has been a perfect tool for us. We love every aspect of it. The product, the support, and the community are great! We actually are renewing this month and look forward to many, many years ahead. Wrike provides updates every week. There are improvements and new enhancements all the time. Just when you didn't think it could be better, a new enhancement is added!

    Usability

    Microsoft

    The actual user interface and the way to navigate around the app is very intuitive and easy to learn/use which would make me give it a high ranking, but the syncing issues drop down my rating because there are times where you add an item to the list and then it just disappears. Then when you add it again the sync will happen and now you have duplicates. The other negative with the usability is adding extra information to an item, such as files or comments or assignments. You can do it but it's difficult to tell which items have this information from the main screen. You have to click on them individually.

    Wrike

    Wrike was difficult to learn at first. But with videos, emails on tips and tricks, I've been able to adapt. However, it's been difficult to convince other departments to use the program as it can be a bit overwhelming at first. I don't know what the solution is, other than to keep using it. Perhaps a template as a start for newbies?

    Reliability and Availability

    Microsoft

    No answers on this topic

    Wrike

    Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

    For the most part, Wrike works very well. Every so often, the Apple/Mac application can be slow to load. Sometimes it requires a refresh and it is working fine again. I have not figured out if it is the software or just a computer issue

    I have not had an issue where I needed to reach out to Wunderlist, but I know their contact and online chat is easy to access and feel confident that they would be helpful. My only worry is Wunderlist is becoming Microsoft to-do in May 2020, and I believe the app will become worse after that.

    Wrike's customer support is top-notch! There are so many ways to get answers from Wrike - from their blog, videos online, community forum, contacting customer support. Whatever way you choose, you'll have an answer within 24 hours, often within just a few hours. I love my customer success manager because she meets with me via Zoom every quarter to show me new product updates, tips and tricks, and talk through any issues or wishes I have with the system. She then provides me with regular status updates on product suggestions I've made. It's awesome!

    We initially had online training. A trainer took us through various training sessions where we learned about all of the tools Wrike provides. This alone allowed us to learn and set up the software and roll it out to our team. Later, a customer service rep stopped in for some one on one training which was extremely helpful.

    I found the pace and ease of the training to be welcoming and effective. I was able to move at my own speed and identify areas of need. This along with the ability to actually utilize provided training accounts made me feel far more willing to learn and grow through trial and error.

    I think it's really about developing a relationship with your Wrike partners, in tandem with your key stakeholders. Once everyone is on the same page, it makes implementation easier. Also, make sure you put a LOT of thought into your Wrike Knowledgebase, clearly plan how you are going to support your users with the key information and answers they will ask

    Alternatives Considered

    Microsoft

    Wunderlist is the cleanest of all these products, and also the most functional. It performs exactly like you would expect a to-do app to work, and you can make it as simple or as complex as you want. Trello boards were too much for my employees to comprehend and they could never get the hang of it. Microsoft TO-DO is just a stripped down remake of Wunderlist and will be a while before it catches up (if it ever does). Todoist is the most similar to me, and it was mostly an aesthetic choice that made me choose Wunderlist.

    Wrike

    Asana seemed pretty comparable to Wrike, and the decision ultimately came down to pricing. On the other hand, Monday has been something our team has been considering for a while, which would also be a cut in cost and significantly more simple (geared toward smaller teams). We're currently still using Wrike since we're in a year-long contract and because we now have a lot of internal infrastructure in Wrike.

    Scalability

    Wrike

    Based on our experience, Wrike is very scalable. Our only issue is that you have to by seats (licenses) in certain increments. For example, when we started using Wrike we only needed 3 seats but we could not purchase any less than 5 so we were paying for 2 extra seats that weren't being used. We still currently have an extra seat open.

    Return on Investment

    Microsoft

    • Productivity Increase - Knowing exactly what I need to do and when makes sure that I am on the right track, working on the right project and task at the right time, and not missing anything (or wasting my time on tasks that don't move the needle).
    • I'm delivering and following through on projects (big and small) without worrying about if I'm missing anything. This has helped specifically in product releases. One task I used to be late on every year was holiday greeting card releases in May. No one is ever ready to design holiday cards in April, so I wasn't even thinking about it. However, retail shops are buying their holiday products in the summer. I would always remember September as the weather started to change, which would lead me to miss out on the bulk of retail shop sales. With Microsoft To-Do, I mapped out the entire project, starting with designing 3 Hanukkah cards, to 3 Christmas cards, to printing them, photographing them, listing them, and marketing them. All with deadlines attached. Every detail was planned out in a doable way. For two years in a row, I did not miss out on this release and my sales have increased 300% year-over-year in part because of my release planning in Microsoft To-Do.
    • Do you know those tasks that pop up in meetings that you write down somewhere and then sometimes just completely forget? No? Just me? Either way, I used to have them scattered in notepads, sticky notes, and notebooks, and a lot would be lost in the wind. With Microsoft To-Do, I take all of those to-dos gathered during the day and add them to my to-do list with a deadline at the end of my work day. Now, I never miss anything.

    Wrike

    • Wrike has good reporting tools that let team leaders see at a glance what everyone on the team is working on and what the status of the project is.
    • The interactive Gantt chart is one of Wrike's best features. It has dynamic timelines that show an overview of the project's progress, including the full work scope and any dependencies. It also has a critical path analysis, can work on more than one project at once, and can import files from MS Project.
    • Two-factor authentication is a very important tool for online safety.
