It’s an absolute masterpiece of…

It’s an absolute masterpiece of software. Very regularly updated, impeccable customer support, gannt charts, infinite subtasks, rich text editor for tasks, revision history for files, just… man. So many things. Great mobile app… EVERY view available: gannt, list, kanban, table, workload/burndown/ analytics, etc etc. switch between em.. Tasks can exist in multiple locations for genius organizing, time logs with comments… never ending features. 99% rock solid. Can’t make workspaces publicly viewable (you can export an interactive snapshot of your timeline though). Expensive if you want all the features. Hard to get even a small non profit discount. I’ve given a lot detail already in my review. I use it for our tech startup social enterprise.

I’m the export manager of a brewery located in a different city than my hometown. The production team set each fermenter tank of a new beer as a new project, we can discuss the beer profile in the specific chat for each project and do whatever action a project management app offer. But the absolute best thing are the different options Wrike offers you to see all projects together: list, icons, timeline etc. You can also filter however you want, ser up directly notifications in your email etc. It’s also very easy to set up a new project and change it later if you have to. Honestly there’s nothing that I consider relevant but to say something maybe they could offer even more grafic options of showing your projects.

The ease of creating and assigning tasks, as well as assigning them to a specific client. I like the possibility of adding comments to a task. It’s also easy to manage the status change of a specific task. The most useful functionality is the ability to view the tasks in different formats as table, kanban, timeline, etc. Really great tool to get things done :) Sometimes is a little confusing the way the tasks are organized. The first time I work with Wrike it takes me some time to fully understand the organization of ‘My Work’, completed task, pending task and tasks assigned by me to others in the team. Not only this software had help the organization to organize and assign tasks, it had helped us to get things done faster. With Wrike, we can track and manage the projects in a more efficient way.

I like the ease, the various custom options as well as the reporting features. It is very easy to train new associates with all of the videos and collateral provided from support. I wish there were more automation tools for assigning and completing tasks. The calendar view is just terrible. The timeline view is confusing and will not perform how we need it it. Customer service sends me to twitter for updates. I don’t like that either. By having accountability and a clear cut understanding of who is responsible for tasks, we benefit from Wrike.

Wrike has a very user-friendly interface, intuitive shortcuts, responsive forums and help request functions, so the answer is never far away if you get stuck. Planning tasks for the day, week, and fortnight is simple, as is managing overdue tasks and keeping an eye on critical dependencies. Functionality is extremely limited on IE, so some team members get confused between multiple browsers when they’re working. Functionality is also limited depending on the license bracket you’re in, so what you see happening in the pilot won’t necessarily happen if you start out on a smaller-scale once you purchase. This software is becoming core to the central administration of projects across three teams in the service. I would not be able to manage the staff and workload here without it – delegation has become much simpler!

We love the transparency of it. We know what everyone is working on and the status on our projects. We can report on our work and quickly make adjustments to the backlog when needed. Collaboration is better than ever before and the ability to report has been incredible. There are some buggy things we’ve found with how projects are sorted in the My Work and Folders areas. It doesn’t cause a major stoppage, but is more of an annoyance. We do wish that there was an icon next to a project if there are attachments on the project, just like the paperclip icon next to the title of a Task that shows that there are attachments. Also, the ability to duplicate reports and give selective rights to reports would add so much more value to an already great software. There are many benefits we’ve seen but the biggest benefit is transparency, collaboration and reporting.

Multiple chart options for displaying timelines Easy comment buttons (can just reply to an email and everything is captured) Ability to create custom folders and other set up features Can grab a visual of a project in under 30 seconds Customized reporting options If you don’t do the training up front or keep up with updates you can easily get lost. Wrike has some awesome features but you have to stay on your toes to take advantage of them. We’re a small team of about 15 employees and were originally hesitant to bring on a project management software since email seemed to be working alright for our needs but after realizing things were getting lost in the shuffle, we decided to try Wrike out. I’m so glad we did. We’ve been using them for about three years and it’s really helped us move forward in project planning and scoping. Right off the bat, Wrike held a training for our company. They did an in-depth training for those of us who were looking to learn the application inside/out and an overall training for the rest of the team. Sure, lots of people do training but then they followed up about 30 days later to uncover what we felt was lacking. From there they did a second training where they helped us customize our work space. I thought that was a really nice touch. Currently we use Wrike to manage internal and external team hours, create project scoping timelines, uncover potential roadblocks and to get everyone on the same page about changes/updates/etc. It’s a great tool. One of my favorite features is that you can print individualized reports for a person or print out the total hours by project. I’d love for Wrike to add more color and font customization options just because it’s hard to see changes sometimes in the comment boxes. I’d also like to see more customization options for the interface for individual users. Overall, I’d recommend Wrike if you’re looking to grow your business efficiency

We thought it was a powerful tool –…

We thought it was a powerful tool — but none of that power is accessible if it takes too much time and energy to use it. (for a small staff) Time consuming to update projects. We paid for a year of this software, with all the best expectations. However, as we began to use it, we found that for our size organization, it was more time and trouble to keep it updated than it was not to use it. Their no-refund policy is incredibly customer-unfriendly, and, as a small education nonprofit, has really deprived us of a sum that is significant to us, for a SAAS we are not able to use. It’s not like a product that we used up so we can’t return it. Wrike would incur no additional loss for bandwidth we didn’t use by refunding us our money. Frankly I am shocked, and would tell others not to take the risk of purchasing it. As certain as you may be that it meets your needs, the risk of finding out you don’t like it as you go along, or circumstances change, can cost you a substantial sum.

Wrike is a super efficient platform for collaboration and organization within a business. It can organize tasks, schedules, discussions and company files all in one shared place. It can also sync employees, and can even get clients involved. There are 3 main components to this app which consist of projects, folders and tasks. And while the benefits of this app far outweigh the negative, my biggest issue with Wrike has been that the setup seems a bit confusing to me, and outside of the Wrike webinar that I took, there are no tutorials available online to walk potential users through in order to make usage of the app more efficient. The creation of projects with the ability to assign subtasks and dependencies is a really great feature. I also really like the “timeline view” which enables users to see the progression of a project, including all of the dependencies, so that if something is delayed in the process of a project, we are able to project how much time it will take us to complete the entire project now with these varying components and the change of events / due dates. It does not have a shared calendar for employees to view a daily, monthly or yearly tasks divvied up, and there are no tutorials available online to teach users how to use the app. I also feel like I could be doing so much more with the app than I am currently aware of. But I am finding difficulty in navigating through it without any sense of direction. This is especially a little frustrating for people who are new to project management, and really have no idea where to begin, or even how to divvy up the tasks in a comprehensive manner for all of our current employees. It would help to have tutorials, offer one-on-one sessions, or even just to have little pop-ups that explain the app as you go, with helpful hints and tips. I would advise others to explore this app, it is really useful if they can take the time to teach themselves how to use it.

I am a software developer by trade and training. We (my wife and I) decided to try our hand at flipping houses. Naturally, I wanted to find some software tools to help support us. After trying many tools we settled on Wrike. My requirements were as follows 1. Was inexpensive enough that we could afford 2. Was cloud-based and had a good experience on mobile and web 3. Allowed us to assign resources to a project without them actually having to use the tool (Good luck getting most small shop trades ppl to use your new software tool) 4. Allowed us to keep information together for a given project 5. Helped us gauge job end dates 6. Allowed us to see critical paths in tasks 7. Allowed us to see where slips were going to happen before they happened 8. Allowed us to do post-mortem reviews of projects so we could use data to hone in on our weak spots. What we didn’t need 1. Document collaboration 2. Group Chat 3. Group workspaces (i.e. we weren’t hosting meetings etc out of the software) 4. Didn’t want/need CRM or invoicing features Wrike fit the bill in most of the things we needed. In addition, I have found their customer support to be outstanding, both over the phone and in online chats. The price for higher end features can get expensive, but all in all, it is a good value for the money and would recommend to other people with similar needs. I look forward to seeing how it scales with many projects. Intuitive interface -Great mobile solution – Dependencies are easy to create – Reasonable price – Great support I wish they did not impose a 5 user minimum as we are much smaller than than. I also wish the project sharing was slightly more intuitive If you are looking low friction way of managing timelines and tasks then I think this tool is great fit.

There are a handful of ways in which I…

There are a handful of ways in which I use Wrike: project management tool, personal organizer, and wiki. As a project management tool, it is useful to be able to create folders or projects full of tasks and share them with your team. I like that I can assign tasks to people and Wrike can automatically send emails to notify people that they’re responsible for a task or subtask. Wrike has many of the features you would expect from a project management tool, such as dependencies and date constraints. Unfortunately, though, Wrike lacks a field that allows you to enter a workload in terms of hours. By default, you can assign date constraints and a duration. This is useful for viewing your project in the Gantt view, but it is useless for Workload view. Wrike has a great feature in Custom Fields, which can sort of be used as a workaround for the Workload shortcoming, but why not include it as standard? Since Wrike gives you the flexibility to make tasks as incomplete or as fleshed out as you’d like, one can imagine many useful applications. Tasks and folders are merely vessels and if they can be filled with objects and given handles that are useful to you, then they can serve different purposes. I have folders that I use for staying organized. Wrike is comparable to Microsoft OneNote in this way. Rather than covering my desk with Post-it notes, I create tasks in Wrike. Wrike is like a second brain that lets me forget about the note for the moment and come back to it later. Wrike has many features which make it easy to change a task into whatever you need it to be. Later, my note might turn into a project, or it might remain a private information repository. A useful feature to add would be optical character recognition (OCR), which would allow me to scan documents and turn them into content in a Wrike task. Since Wrike allows you to edit access down to the specific user or collaborator, it can be used like a wiki where you want to share information with other team members, but restrict access for others. I use Wrike tasks to keep track of useful information that I want to share with select few people, which I wouldn’t be able to do if I put the information on the company intranet without considerable burden on the IT department. Beware of one major downside to using Wrike, which is that it is dependent on a fast internet connection. Without that, you won’t be able to access or edit your information.

The collaboration and conversation…

The collaboration and conversation tracking tools are what have kept this as part of our ongoing product development toolkit here for the past two years. It is fast, responsive, and extremely flexible, serving a variety of different team configurations. Search! As our database has grown we have far outstripped the search capabilities of the product, to the point where we’ve had to add in a few hooks to our workflows to keep even the basic function working. That and partial resource loading HAVE to be the next development steps in the pipeline or the company won’t retain the customer base. Wrike is unmatched when it comes to getting a rough sense of an overall project timeline and resource needs in a fast, low-overhead manner. Where other Project Management tools have either a steep learning curve or substantial upfront cost (or both!) Wrike is ready out of the box, when you need it, and as easy to use as typing a to-do list. That coupled with the cloud-based real-time collaboration engine and you have one really versatile, richly featured tool. Brainstorm early, Gantt often, and make sure you actually check the critical path at least daily on short timeline projects.

Wrike is ready out of the box, when you need it, and as easy to use as typing a to-do list. That coupled with the cloud-based real-time collaboration engine and you have one really versatile, richly featured tool.

Brainstorm early, Gantt often, and make sure you actually check the critical path at least daily on short timeline projects.

The easily customizable dashboards are my favorite feature. I have created several that allow me to look at workloads from different perspectives: by due date; by team member; tasks completed by day, week and month. It could have better privacy controls on discussions. You can’t maintain a single thread on a project that includes both private team messages and messages with collaborators, such as clients. I have a team of over 20 writers and editors in my copywriting business. Wrike has been the perfect solution for keeping all of our writing and editing projects organized and assigned. It keeps due dates from being missed and is a great communication tool where all the communications on a task or project are easily seen in one place. It is important to understand the hierarchy of folders, projects, tasks and subtasks when making user or collaborator assignments and follows.

The timeline function and the customer support. Cons: The reporting feature and timeline printing feature I have used Wrike now for about 4 yrs and it has been a Godsend. I manage about 10 to 12 major development projects at any given year with about 1000 tasks in all. Wrike has kept many little tasks from falling through the cracks that could hurt or delay a project. Wrike has many useful features such as the timeline function, that instantly gives you a high level picture on how your project is progressing. I am all in with this project management system.’
