HTML Proofing

Table 131. Availability - Legacy plans


All user types (including collaborators) can use HTML Proofing.

Use HTML Proofing to add comments directly to web pages within Wrike and add links to approvals.


HTML Proofing is currently supported only in the Google Chrome browser and in the Wrike for Desktop app starting from version 3.3.7.

Add links in Proofing

You can add links to web pages just like you would to other attachments in Wrike.

  1. Open a task, folder, or project to which you'd like to attach a link.

  2. Click the paperclip icon above the description field. 1

  3. Select Website link. 2

  4. Enter the website link in the pop-up that appears together with the name that's displayed in the list of attachments. Note: Only https:// links are supported.

  5. Click Attach website link. 3


The link is added to the list of attachments. Now you can open it in Proofing and start collaborating.


You can add web links to approvals and invite guest reviewers to view them within Wrike.

Open links in Proofing

To open links in Proofing you need to install the Wrike Proof for HTML Chrome extension. You'll be asked to do so when you first open any link from the list of attachments.

  1. Find the link you need in the list of attachments.

  2. Open the link in Proofing.

  3. From there click the Install extension button. The installation window opens in a separate tab.

  4. After the installation is finished refresh your Wrike tab. The web page is open in Proofing.

Now you can:

  • Add, view, and reply to comments.

  • Add web links to approvals.

  • Preview the page in different resolutions and on different devices (laptop, tablet, mobile browser).

  • Create page snapshots.

  • See link metadata.


You can export comments you left for the link in a PDF file. It works the same as with images and documents.

When you leave a comment a snapshot of the viewed part of the page is created. You can always switch to the live version of the page 1 or back to the snapshot 2 within the Proofing window. It's possible to leave multiple comments on one snapshot. To do so stay in the snapshot tab after you posted the first comment and add more comments from there. To create a new snapshot go back to the live preview and leave a new comment.



Each snapshot takes up storage space in Wrike. When you remove the snapshot the storage space is restored.


Can this be disabled for my account?

Account admins can switch off the ability to add links as attachments from the Security tab in Settings.
