- 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
- Speed to the data server is quite bad. Opening a task can take several seconds, which is a problem, especially when working in meetings with Wrike and everybody is waiting for Wrike
- In my opinion, the Wrike API is very bad. Some functionalities which are available in the GUI are not available in the API. This prevents some automation- making more work than necessary.
- Each resource in Wrike needs an email address. That is no problem for people, but it is a very big problem for laboratories, big machines or similar you want to have as resources in our project planning. It is simply not possible. Very big drawback compared to MS Project.
- Project Management
- Workload assessment
- Detailed progress reports
- Time logs
- Made Wrike Analyze more affordable
- Renewal version of certifications
- Easier navigation when building forms
- More flexibility in form results
- Approvals - majority is not an option
- Cross functional team tracking
- Gantt charts
- Notifications when updates are made, and deep linking from those email notifications, so you don't get lost
- Project visibility and time based status
- You have to be assigned to a project to see it - so it can be hard to find something you are not working on (but that you potentially requested) if you are not assigned to it
- Mobile time tracking could be easier, but it is still accessible
- Time based tracking takes a bit of playing around to get
We also use Wrike for time tracking, and I can see where it is very useful for time tracking if there are specific billable hours associated with tasks.
- It offers a free trial
- It is very easy to use with a very intuitive interface
- Offers great file management features that allow us to do editing to our task and make it easy for us to store files.
- Makes it easy for us to work on our tasks.
- It can be complicated to trace your projects if it was not stored in an organized manner
- Project Management
- Daily Task List
- Past Due Calendar
- There are a few things that are a bit odd at first when learning the system. For example, when typing in the note field in a table view, you can't enter or ctrl-enter for the next line. However, if you go into the details, you can ctrl-enter.
- The Completed Date is automatic and doesn't allow you to manually change it. We created an Actually Completed custom field to assist with this issue.
- The automation bots come in at midnight and I haven't found a way to adjust this without adjusting my entire time zone. This is not a big issue but just a small improvement that's needed.
- Project management: One of the more robust project management software options out there with all the bells and whistles and company can need and therefore is very easily tailored to your department or company needs.
- Company-wide transparency: Wrike helped us lower stress and project anxiety through transparent notes, drafts and dates.
- Microsite management: We created a landing page for Sales use and by linking to Wrike, the most current version of each collateral piece was available as needed.
- User intuitiveness: While robust is a definite plus, it does take a fair amount of 'trial and error' hours to determine what all Wrike has to offer and how best to utilize it. More situational-based tutorials / videos would be a good next move.
- Best practices: While we eventually developed our own company's best practices, it took several moths to be familiar enough with the options to get there. I'd love to see Wrike deploy some 'best practice' standards (examples from other similar company use cases) for how to interact with and get the most out of the software.
Less appropriate: Any department or company where time constraints (or desire) to not allow for the aforementioned continual / daily updates. If a more relaxed, infrequent use is more realistic, then there are other software that are must more streamlined and employ fewer options that would be more successful/effective in that case.

- Resource Management
Our team needed a project management tool that provided full visibility of the workload that was relatively easy to implement and onboard. Our previous solution offered limited visibility for projects, provided little to no capability to see roadmap conflicts, and offered various integrations for existing communication tools (e.g., Slack, Google Suite, etc.). We wanted something that provided customized project templates, offered ease in project management, and easily organized related assets/files.
- Wrike's options to set dependencies keep projects moving automatically without occupying the project manager's time to update each assignee that a task is ready to move forward.
- Every member of the team has full visibility into every project in the space, allowing us to be a highly efficient, nimble team.
- Tagging options make projects easy to find within the workspace, and we've found this helpful when assigning projects to our AGILE sprints.
- Gantt charts quickly identify workload overload, and it helps our team to balance workloads effectively.
- Dashboards are fully customizable for both reports and team management, which we use during our sprint planning sessions.
- Blueprints make duplicating repeated project roadmaps lightening fast, saving time in building road maps for our project managers.
- Building dashboards can be a little tricky, but Wrike's customer service is quick to respond and quite helpful.
- The onboarding videos have been so helpful to our team—I would like a deeper dive into using Dashboards and Reports added to these resources for our team to reference.
- Teams must come to a consensus about which notification settings are a must for ease of communication. We found that if someone only has daily reports turned on and at-mentions silenced, notifications are not as effective.
- There is not currently a way to add images or embedded links in forms. This would be helpful for us as we develop forms for design requests so that recipients can select from different options with a visual.
- When developing forms, there is only an option to include one tag with the ticket/task/project that results. We use multiple tags to keep projects visible in different team folders, so having that option would be quite helpful in saving us the time of tagging requests manually.
- In my personal opinion I can say that this tool is very good for project management.
- For project and task automations.
- Keep a good track of activities
- In my personal review, we think that this product is quite complete and the only thing we have the possibility to mention is that its interface needs to be improved, due to the fact that it is quite unintuitive.
- I like that the functions are visible and very easy to use, since from the beginning we noticed that the learning curve was short, we all adapted to our work plan with Wrike.
- By completing tasks and projects on time, we are now more responsible with the features that Wrike offers us.
- Easy report creation, the details are very good and the speed to create them drives effectiveness and internal fluidity.
- Visualization of the progress of tasks and projects is an important feature, it allows us to make adjustments to projects with problems and finish them without problems.
- It is a system that has allowed us to be more efficient and fluid internally, but the price is a determining factor, since it increases every year, and compared to other similar software it is at a disadvantage, but it may not be at a disadvantage in functions and results, but in price yes it is.
- Easy to use
- Navigation can sometimes be a challenge
- Setting up different dashboards and views isn't always the easiest, but once you get it set up, you're good to go
- It might take a little time to get used to it if you've never worked with a Project Management tool before
- Execute sprints.
- To store, collaborate and manage multiple projects, tasks, reports, etc, using agile methodologies and principles.
- Share files through different formats.
- Track the projects that are being worked on to finish and deliver them on time.
- Agile planning.
- Multiple integrations.
- Easy access.
- CI/CD pipeline.
- allows for the creation of 'blueprints' for common projects
- customizable tasks
- system for sharing spaces, projects, and tasks as needed, so you only see what you need to see
- ability to create reports and analytics based on projects
- a space for document storage that is not a project and doesn't require a status
- an easier way to search spaces
- a way to store customer and product information
- Centralizing all of our projects in one easy to use system
- Provide real-time visibility to track projects from concept to delivery
- Minimize email chains and boost stakeholder collaboration and transparency
- Reduce bottlenecks with fast reviews and approval of creative assets
- Customer support and strategic guidance
- Recurring check ins with their customers
- Offer more API integrations
- Streamline workflow in the UI
Wrike Forms have helped other teams put in creative requests to us, and we can then organize those tasks into our sprints and add the requester as a follower so they can follow along with the project's progress.
Wrike has helped us communicate project status between different teams and divisions in the agency. We also use it as a way to give feedback on projects and make comments on roadblocks and status, so the whole team is on the same page. The tagging function helps us notify key players to make changes if needed quickly and seamlessly.
The workflow feature has also given us the ability to create our own unique workflow to ensure every step in our internal process is followed and nothing is left out. We have customized the flow with content approvals from our director so he gets notified and can approve assets quickly.
- Custom workflows for any type of team
- Custom request forms
- Project tracking and tagging
- Assigned approvals for tasks
- Better way to add images and videos to tasks, the upload is terrible
- More user-friendly calendar view and workload
- Way to add clients to approvals/make comments without them having to log in to a Wrike account
We have a very unique project flow for our brand team where we have to collaborate with other teams and clients on a number of assets. Wrike makes it easy to customize our flow so it contains all our tasks from kickoff to pre-production to production to post. When new members come into the team this makes it super easy to show them the process and what they will be expected to do.
We have several UGC projects for clients that we have to upload phone videos to the assigned task. Most of the time when we add the video or drag the file in it has a hard time loading and takes FOREVER sometimes it just never uploads and Wrike cancels it. That is probably the most frustrating thing since we work with a lot of video content. To remedy this, we have had to upload files to a drive and then link them to the Wrike task, but then you cannot make comments directly on the asset in Wrike.
- Ability to create review groups with automated notifications
- Export detailed reports of project statuses
- Upload, share, review, and comment on creative files
- A lot of the integrations and plug-ins were prone to fail, including Microsoft Outlook and the ability to make comments on web projects
- Mobile functionality could be improved. Challenging to make comments on files.
- Separates PM Tasks.
- Lets you know where your team is at in the cycle.
- Folder Management.
- Search by Assignee Feature.
- Completed Folders and Saving completed Wrike Tasks.
- Being able to differentiate between Stories and EPIC's better.
- Team collaboration (Work Management / Project Management).
- Project Risk Prediction (Alerts appropriate people when project is behind).
- Versioning of documents (Makes sure everyone has the most-recent version of a document).
- Easy file sharing.
- Development of Integrations.
- Some features limited by plan.
- Learning curve at first use.
The project will cycle through various statuses and reviews, so the Director and any other key stakeholders, can see the progress and updates. Wrike's file management for projects is helpful to keep all files associated with a project together and easily accessible. Another great feature is versioning. If we had a script created, but made a few tweaks we can upload the newer version and Wrike will archive the old version. Once a project is completed, we archive it into a separate folder. Wrike has reporting capabilities too!
In the beginning, it is a learning curve on how to use it, but once you find a groove... it's super helpful!
- Organizes to dos and daily/weekly tasks
- Allows for easy collaboration and status updates/notes with co-workers
- Keeps everyone on track with quarterly or larger goals
- Customizing of boards and statuses
- More flexibility with the view of tasks
- In-app/site communication like chat or video convos
- Easy task creation with clear due dates
- Ability to modify the status of tasks while they're being worked on
- Very visually appealing and simple to use
- It can be hard to find previous tasks once they're marked complete
We have run into some bugs with attachments in the tasks themselves. You need to download attachments from the task, not just preview them within Wrike, because they will not preview correctly.
- Dashboard integration
- Wrike Editor for graphics & video
- Communication within platform
- Automation of organization
- Bug fixes and performance
- Complicated folder structures for new users
Also used by some Marketing groups for project management.
- User experience is pretty good, easy to use, nice interface, good performance
- Gantt chart features are built for good productivity
- Personalization of email alerts
- Configuration of workflows and custom fields should allow to configure more restrictive actions for users - It is too open and leaves room for user errors.
- Gantt charts
- Team collaboration on tasks
- New UI makes it a challenge to navigate through projects.
- Cannot add a priority to tasks
- Renaming tasks adds a comment that the task has been renamed- very annoying.
- Alerts of new communication or changes to a request
- Organization of requests through tagging
- Grouping requests for larger campaigns
- Keeping everything centrally located
- Adding notes and allowing robust internal communication
- It's a little intimidating for new users, but once in it, it is easy to use
- Adding files from you phone through the app is a little cumbersome
