Overview

Wrike’s Gmail add-on lets you work with Wrike tasks from your Gmail inbox. Use it to

  • Turn an email into a Wrike task. When you receive a non-Wrike email, click the Wrike extension to create a task based on that email.
  • Add an email as a comment. If an email thread gets updated, add text from a new email in the thread as a comment to the existing task.
  • View Tasks and Change Status. Change a task’s status from the add-on.
  • Send and receive comments. Add and read comments on Wrike tasks from the add-on.

All changes are synced to Wrike instantly. Changes from Wrike are synced in the add-on when the page is refreshed.
