Reviews (1-25 of 145)
- Organizing work in different ways depending on the person's preference.
- Analytics doesn't allow a time frame option, its just ongoing.
- Interface is not user-friendly for new collaborators.
- Wrike provides various project tracking views, which caters to the need of a diverse team, since everyone would like to see their list of tasks in their own needed views.
- Wrike provides a great integration of uploaded files from Adobe, Office 365, and GDrive.
- When collapsing the project filters, then clicking on the project tab, it does not save your preference for which tasks were collapsed.
- There are a few glitches when the desktop app has been left open for a while, which requires a force quit of the app.
- Multiple ways to view your project, including lists, boards, gantt, tables, etc.
- Request Form functionality to auto-generate either 1 Task or an entire project from a blueprint/template.
- Thumbnail images of PDF's, similar to PNG/JPG files.
- Sub-task functionality with dashboard displays.
- Very easy to use. Our team of creatives are not project managers. Wrike is very intuitive.
- Review and proofing. My enabling our team to send creative proofs for feedback is one of our favorite features.
- A lot of updates. On the plus side, Wrike is continually providing innovative solutions. On the negative, sometimes it's hard to keep up.
- Task management.
- Free-form project management.
- Workload management.
- Reporting, fairly inflexible especially in how meta data is used.
- Time tracking is limited and a little frustrating to enter when you're not using the upgrade for resource mgt.
- Zapier integration could be stronger.
- Communication. This really helps us communicate to each other about the different projects we are working on.
- Easy to assign tasks to others, loop others in on a project.
- Wrike logs the progress/communication of each project.
- The dashboard where I can see what others are working on should be more easily accessible.
- It facilitates and simplifies collaborative work since it provides the participants with the functions that allow dynamic and achievable collaboration. This means that people are more willing to participate in teamwork if they have the help of this wonderful tool.
- When you have to carry out a project, you have all the functions that allow you to deal with it successfully. For example, several people can collaborate in the planning phase and enrich it with the comments and contributions. You can view the projects through a project map when properly planned.
- Help in the planning of work/projects allows us to measure the amount of work that an employee can handle. It helps us to prioritize tasks and visualize them.
- I think it should be more intuitive, that is, more accessible to those who have no experience in project planning. In the beginning, it will be a little difficult to use and you may lose some time until you get acquainted with it.
- Costs when acquiring project software, as well as its implementation and training, increase the company's expenses. It is important that software providers take this factor into account when pricing their product since in many cases recovering the investment rarely happens immediately.
If the company is small and everyone communicates without any problem, and few projects are executed, this software will be of little help. You would not be able to take advantage of Wrike's multiple functionalities.
- Prioritising to-do lists
- Communicating progress
- Dashboards to view other's workload
- Ambiguous between tasks/projects/tags/folders
- Layout can seem cluttered and confusing
- Requires all other collegues to be utilising in a similar way
We use Wrike as a Team of about 20 people, and we know of other Teams within our larger department who also use Wrike, but we aren't using it currently as a shared tool with those other Teams.
We needed a tool to help us track projects and associated tasks that our Team is working on. We also needed a way to easily report the status and progress of those projects.
- Intuitive user experience
- Flexible set up, can be used in different ways for different Teams
- Quick report set up
- In need of a high-level roadmap tool
- Reporting features could be more extensive - I find myself adapting our information input to the limited abilities of the reporting filters
- Tagging is everything. We have a 'space' set up with all of our projects. We then have a second 'space' with multiple folders that are set up to help us manage our work internally. Examples: Folder for 'Marketing Platform' that contains folders we can tag for how we're launching the deliverable/project: Social media, eblast, blog, website, landing page, PPC, print collateral, etc. Only the final launch 'task' inside the project is tagged with a platform type, this is so we can quickly build a 'calendar' for each platform we have to see what days things are getting launched/going live. Folder for 'Marketing Activity' that contains folders we can tag for what type of work needs to be done to make the deliverable/project happen: Graphic Design, Copy, HTML, Pardot/Salesforce Integration, Review, etc. Only the specific 'tasks' inside of the project are tagged with what type of 'activity' it is, this is so we can quickly look at all of the specific types of work we have going on and balance it between team members or outsource. Folder for 'Market' that contains all of our target demographics we can tag. The overall 'project' is tagged with this so we can quickly see a list of all the work we've done for each market. Folder for 'Product' that contains all of our products we can tag: The overall 'project' is tagged with this so we can quickly see a list of all the projects we've done for each product.
- The Sub Calendar option is amazing! We have multiple calendars and being able to create sub-calendars keeps things simple, clean, and user-friendly. Examples: Event Calendar: This calendar includes sub-calendars for each type of event we have going on: Int'l Tradeshow, National Tradeshow, Regional Tradeshow, Client Event. This info is pulled from how our Projects are initially set up and categorized. Website Calendar: This calendar includes sub-calendars for each of the websites we manage so we can see and track what updates and changes have been made on each website.
- Gannt Chart: Being able to drag and drop the gannt chart around the calendar is perfect when set up properly.
- Blueprint: This feature saves us all the time in the world.
- Reports. The reports could be 'prettier' and less excel/table like. Our VP of marketing would be more likely to drop in on a project and check the status if there were friendlier 'dashboards' etc.
- Calendar Sync. If we could sync specific calendars to Outlook this would be helpful. Example: Taking a calendar for one of our specific products, and being able to share it with the Product Manager outside of our department so it seamlessly integrates into their outlook without them having to click on an external calendar link that they constantly lose track of.
Less appropriate: Quick simple projects/revisions to project where it takes more time to enter the project than execute it.
- Gantt Chart display of project timelines: the visual is a powerful tool to communicate the scope of the project.
- The "dependencies" for tasks help communicate to team members the interrelatedness of their work and automate the process of notifying team members that all necessary prerequisites for their tasks have been completed (so they can start working).
- The interface isn't intuitive for new users. I spend a significant amount of time helping new team members understand how to interact with Wrike.
- When multiple users are assigned to a Wrike task, it is not clear who has responsibility for oversight/completion; it would be useful if a "primary" assignee could be designated in those cases.
- All project information can be accessed in one place.
- Eliminated the use of paper.
- Employees do not need to look through emails.
- Project schedule or milestones can be updated within the system and easily communicated to all stakeholders.
- Employees were very used to the old system of communication. It took a while to adapt to a new project management system.
- Employees have to log in another application, and use the email. They need to look in two places.
- Wrike helps streamline the schedule of separate tasks that are established across teams to reach a common goal
- We are able to show the roles of related tasks from different parts of the management in harmony
- Able to show the supportive connection that different units have to be aware of to be able to work as a team
- Would like a way to see database of the related documents or a kind of centralized shared docs
- Time Tracking
- Sometimes when a proof is uploaded, it will say ready for review and other times I feel it doesn't.
- When changes are required, "REJECTED" seems like a harsh word!
- Organizes projects
- Shares deadlines with team members
- Get feedback and approvals easily...even guest reviewers
- Archive projects
- Structure of how the projects connect
- Calendar/reporting is difficult
- Working globally and different languages
- Project management - Wrike does a great job giving a visual to all projects and being able to communicate about them with the team.
- To-do lists - It is easy to manage a personal to-do list.
- The only thing that I wish was that they had a pay per user function so that I could just buy six and not have to buy ten, when I don't need the other four.
- Collaboration: Wrike has become our sole location for collaborating on projects and their component tasks due to its easy comment threads and ability to comment directly on PDFs, Word docs, videos, etc.
- Visibility: Wrike has flexible reporting capabilities that have been a huge help to our Marketing leadership team, especially because we don't have a dedicated project manager - that responsibility is carried by team managers who need to be able to see team member workloads and project status at a glance.
- Flexibility: Wrike's robust project templating capabilities are mission-critical for our team due to the volume of similar projects we work on.
- Notification timing: Unless we keep Wrike open and constantly check the inbox, it's easy to miss conversation on projects since the integration with Outlook results in a 1-2 hour delay in email notifications being sent.
- Default Task Status Filters: This is a HUGE pain. The default filter for the tasks that show in a project hides any tasks marked complete. This default filter cannot be changed, and has to be manually overridden by the user every time. This means, for instance, when a designer is ready to start a design task and needs the approved copy, she has to un-filter the task list just to be able to access the completed copy task.
- Assignee Switching: Minor gripe, but frequent. In list view, clicking on the assignee and choosing a different assignee from the resulting dropdown ADDS an assignee rather than switching the assignment to the new person. As a manager who frequently reassigns tasks to my team, having to go into the individual task view is a waste of time.
