Using Files View

Table 39. Availability - Legacy plans


Files view is available for regular users on Professional accounts and up. The grid mode in Files view is available on Wrike for Marketers accounts or accounts with the Wrike Proof add-on.


On Enterprise accounts, the types of users who are allowed to use this functionality may differ due to user types settings.

List vs. Grid Layout in Files view

Switch between a standard list or grid-style layout by clicking the current view icon 1 in the top-right corner of the view and choosing between List or a Small, Medium, or Large grid.

  • List 2: View items in a list format. Use this view to display more on the screen and when file title and data are most important.

  • Grid 3: View file thumbnails in a grid layout. Use this view when you need to see a small version of the file and file data is less important. Adjust the size of the grid to see larger images or more files at once.
