Wrike for Adobe XD

If your workspace looks different, or if you can't follow the instructions described on this page you might have the New Wrike Experience enabled. Click here to find out more.

All user types (except collaborators) on all accounts can install Wrike's plugin for Adobe XD.


Wrike for Adobe XD allows you to work with Wrike tasks from Adobe XD and links Adobe file attachments with Wrike tasks. Use the extension to:

  • Access Wrike tasks. In the plugin, you’ll see the same list of tasks that you see in “My to-do” in Wrike.
  • Upload files directly to tasks in Wrike.
  • Keep track of versioning. Once an image is added, you can quickly update it and add a new version of the file to Wrike.
  • Change the task status.
  • Add comments to tasks.

Wrike Tip! Use filtering and sorting options for better visibility. You can select to show only active or only overdue tasks within the plugin. All the default sorting options are also available: Priority, Date modified, Date created, Status, Importance, Title, and Date.

Important Information

  • Data in the plugin is updated every time you perform some actions from the plugin, but you can also manually refresh the data by clicking the “Refresh” button.
