Moving and Copying Attachments

Table 128. Availability






You can move and copy attachments (files attached from your computer as well as those from external sources such as Google Drive) within your Wrike account to different tasks, folders, or projects. When you move a file, it's removed from its original location. When you copy a file, it's duplicated and a new version is attached elsewhere, requiring additional storage space.

All users can move and copy attachments, but your access role must include permission to remove files from their original location and add files to their intended destination.

  • When you move files you can choose whether or not to include their comments, previous versions, or approval details. If you choose to move a file with its approval details, its full approval history remains visible and users can open the corresponding tasks where those approvals took place.

  • When you copy files only their latest version is copied, but their comments and approval details aren't copied.

Move or copy files

  1. Check the box 1 next to file(s) you want to copy/move from the list of attachments of a task, folder, or project, or switch to Files view to select files from multiple locations at the same time (within one space).

  2. Click the Move/Copy button 2 above the list of attachments.

  3. A dialogue box opens where you can:

    1. Choose if you want to move or copy the file(s). 3

    2. Choose a destination task, folder, or project for the file(s). 4

    3. If you're moving file(s), choose whether or not to include their comments, previous versions, or approval details. 5

    4. Click Move file(s) or Copy file(s). 6


Files pending approval can't be moved, but they can be copied.

Another way to move or copy files is to right-click a file in the list of attachments under the task and then select Move/Copy. It's possible to move and copy files the same way from Files view, as well as from the Files dashboard widget.


If you need to copy the task/folder/project description together with images within it, you can always use keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste them. This way all the content will be added to the second location and all the images will be added as attachments to the selected task, folder, or project.
