Attaching Files From Cloud Storage Apps

Table 273. Availability - Legacy plans


All users can attach files from cloud storage apps. Users on Enterprise accounts may have this right disabled. Users on Free accounts can't add files from Sharepoint as attachments in Wrike.

At Wrike, you can easily attach a file to a task, folder, or project directly from several well-known cloud storages: Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft OneDrive, and SharePoint.


When you log in to a cloud storage app through Wrike, you can access the same files as when you log in to the app independently of Wrike. For example, if you don't see some Sharepoint file, you still won't see it when you attach files from Sharepoint within Wrike.

With this powerful integration in the cloud space, you don't have to worry about routine backups, toggling files between different devices, data syncing, and being able to access important documents from virtually anywhere. When all your files are instantly accessible by your team in one place, file collaboration becomes fast and easy.


When you attach files from cloud storage, they don't count towards your Wrike account file storage limit.

Attach files from cloud storage apps

  1. Open a task, folder, or a project to which you want to attach files.

  2. Click Attach files (paper clip icon) 1 above the description field in Task view or the project/folder info panel or the +Add files 2 button below the description field.

  3. Select the cloud app you want to attach a file from.

  4. If this is your first time attaching a file from the could app, Wrike will ask you to log in to your cloud storage account and grant Wrike access to the files.

  5. Next, you can select the files to attach.

  6. Depending on the cloud app, you'll need to click the Select/Choose/OK button to confirm adding the attachments.


When you attach a file, a link to it appears in the task's attachment section. Attachments from cloud storage services remain stored in the cloud storage account and don't use Wrike storage space.

By default, everyone who shares the task automatically has access to the online file. On Enterprise accounts, account admins and owners may change Google Drive sharing settings, so the files are not automatically shared.

When working with Google Drive, you can also create a new document, spreadsheet, or presentation in Google Docs directly from the Attach files from Google Drive dialog.
