Wrike’s Chrome extension helps you create tasks from a webpage and view the tasks associated with a particular page. When you create tasks using Wrike’s Chrome extension you can: add the task to a Folder, assign the task, set a due date, edit the task’s description and add a screenshot of the webpage you are looking at.
- You must be signed in to the Chrome browser with your Google account in order to use the extension.
- Some web tools don’t have unique URLs for specific items. In these cases Wrike’s Chrome extension turns the webpage into a new task, but it can’t track or notify you of active tasks associated with each page.
