Attaching Files to Tasks, Folders, and Projects

Table 269. Availability - Legacy plans


All users (including collaborators) can attach files to tasks, folders, and projects.


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

Attach a file

  1. Open a task, folder, or project you'd like to attach the file to. If you're attaching a file to a folder or project, navigate to the appropriate folder or project and then open its info panel.

  2. In Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers and in Wrike's Desktop App, you can select the file you'd like to attach and drag and drop it to the bottom of the task, folder, or project. The area will turn blue to indicate you can drop the file there.

  3. Alternatively, you can click the paperclip icon (Attach files 1) or the +Add files 2 button and select where you'd like to attach a file from:

    1. Your computer

    2. Google Drive (including Team Drives for G Suite integrated accounts)

    3. Dropbox

    4. Box

    5. Microsoft OneDrive (personal or business accounts)

    6. SharePoint*

    7. YouTube

    8. MediaValet*

    9. Bynder*

    10. Website links*

  4. Select your file and press OK to upload it. If you're adding a file from YouTube, you'll need to paste a public or unlisted video URL.

  5. Once the files are uploaded, they appear below the description field and are available to the team members shared on the task, folder, or project.


If this is your first time attaching a file from Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Sharepoint, Bynder, or MediaValet, you'll be asked to sign in to that account first. Once the file is uploaded, you (and others shared on the task) will be able to access up-to-date file versions. Account admins on Enterprise, Enterprise Standard and Enterprise Pinnacle accounts can restrict the list of sources users can attach files from for the whole account.

If the attached files are DOC, DOCX, PPT, XLS, and PPTX formats, you can preview them directly in Wrike. Just click a file of this type, and it'll automatically open as a preview. Please note that Microsoft Office file preview in Wrike is not available for users on Free and Team accounts.


*Only users on Business Plus and higher accounts can add files from Bynder and MediaValet as attachments in Wrike. Adding website links and files from SharePoint is available on Professional accounts and higher.
