Adding Comments

Table 1. Availability - Legacy plans


All users can add comments to tasks, folders, and projects that they have access to unless their access role restricts it.


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

Comments allow you to leave notes on tasks, folders, and projects. Use comments to ask questions, provide updates, and communicate with colleagues.

You can @mention colleagues in comments to get the attention of a specific person or user group.

Add comments

  1. Navigate to the relevant work task, folder, or project.

  2. Open Task View, the Folder or Project Info panels, or Item View.

  3. Click the Add a comment... field underneath the description section 1.

  4. Type your comment.

  5. Click the paperclip icon to add an attachment (optional) 2.

  6. Click the emoji icon to add an emoji (optional) 3.

  7. Select formatting for your comment (optional) 4.

Paste images directly into comments from your clipboard. Wait until you see a green checkmark next to the image before sending your comment, which indicates that the image has been successfully uploaded.

This works in Chrome, Firefox, Safari 11, and the Desktop App.


You can also add comments to tasks, folders, and projects from the Activity Stream.


Export to Excel doesn't include comments. I want to export my comments from tasks, how can I do it?

Here are the ways you can export comments from Wrike tasks:

  1. You can perform an Account Backup to save a local copy of your account's Wrike data. In the 'tasks.json' file, you will see the list of tasks and the comments corresponding to each of them. It is also possible to include BI data in your account backup. BI data is stored in tables in CSV format including tables with comments. Documentation for data schema can be found here.

  2. Each task can be saved as a PDF file, and the file will include a comment stream as well.

  3. Comments can also be pulled via API:
