Hot! Using Wrike – Some useful hints and tips

  • Sharebar

Wrike is an internet-based software application that helps people to organize their work, such as emails, documents, etcwrike tasks in a single, central shareable location instead of across a range of distributed applications like mailboxes on personal laptops and different file servers, etc with the huge potential for loss of information and the associated difficulties with sharing.   Without an online tool like Wrike.com, it is not easy to manage projects and allow for real team collaboration.

As a solution, Wrike offers the ability to share and connect – allowing team members to collaborate on tasks, projects and documents through a central workspace, with quick and easy access via an internet connection. The market for such online tools is a busy one these days so companies like Wrike need to be on the ball with introducing new and useful features to keep their clients loyal.

With this in mind, Wrike takes feedback from its client base through its voting portal, where new suggestions can be wrike1posed.  As a result of customer suggestions, Wrike has previously introduced several new features including folder colour-coding and the ability to set the start day for the week (we don’t all start on Monday!!). Two new features introduced now include:

Print tasks from Wrike: sometimes we simply need a printed to-do list! Wrike now allows its users to print a task with its full description or, indeed, the entire task list. It’s easy – just click ‘Print’

See tasks in two folders: Wrike lets users put a single task in more than one folder letting you look at the same thing in different ways.  So, customers were asking: can we see tasks that are tagged with two different folders but at the same time?  The answer now is ‘yes’. Simply, choose the first folder. Next, enter the name of the second folder in the search box, using this format: folder: name, and the tasks that appear in both folders will be shown at the same time!  At the moment this only works for tasks in two folders but watch this space – Wrike are on the case with more improvements…
