[Launched! ๐Ÿš€] G-Suite Team Drive Intregration

When is Wrike planning on supporting full integration with G-Suite Team Drives?

Currently, files stored in Team Drives cannot be connected to a task using the "Attach Files" command.  The "select a file" window will not search Team Drives.

You can copy a link for a file stored in a Team Drive folder, and paste it into a Wrike task description or comment, but it will not show up within the files section of a task.

 

Thanks.

Glad to tell you that we just added support for Team Drives!

Sorry for the fact of being a little slow with this one. I hope that now you can be even more productive with Wrike ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I have since found the official launch post of Google Team Drives (Mar 9th).  The early adopter application page now links to this blog post.

@Martin Hello! Integrating with Team Drives isn't on our current short-term roadmap, but it's something that the team would be interested in doing. Thank you for the post here :)

@Stephanie I think it would be beneficial to reconsider your stance on this particular feature a bit. The reason being is that Google Drive Team Drives functionality is aimed at enterprises. Meaning the same customers that might be your largest paying customers might also be the ones who will ask for this feature very soon (when team drives goes public) For my self i can say that we are evaluating wrike for our 5000 users and team drives integration would be a requirement. I can of course +1 this topic but I am doing to on behalf of 5000 people potentially. I guess this will be the same for many others who will soon find them selves reading this post and +1'ning it.....

Hi Kristoffer, I know that you've talked about this with our team internally but I also want to leave a note here. We definitely understand how this is necessary for some teams and knowing how many people are impacted by a decision is helpful, so thank you for leaving a comment with that information (definitely more reasonable than having 5000 +1s). We'll continue discussing this with you during your evaluation period and this thread is here for anyone else who wants to jump in.

We are starting to use Google Team Drive, but we are currently being hindered in this because it is new and vendors, like Wrike, have not incorporated the functionality yet.  Wrike is certainly not the only vendor, but I have follow up with the others also.  The Team Drive functionality solves problems for the institution, so it is morning forward for use.  I have to duplicate information back to Drive to be able to use Wrike.  Duplicated information is easy to get out of sync, which is certainly not what we want.  I would be curious to where Google Team Drive is in your plans.

Hi Frank, it's great to learn about how you're getting started with Google Team Drive and how it helps your team. This isn't something we've discussed or planned yet, but we'll make sure to share news here as soon as we have updates about this functionality. As always, it's super helpful to learn as much as possible about the different use cases teams have, so huge thank you to everyone keeping this topic active. :)

I agree with others. We use Google Team Drive and I would have to be able to connect to it for Wrike to be useful to us!

Our team is switching over to using Team Drive and don't want to have to download/add it to our drives before it can be added to Wrike. Please make this a priority because as those before me have said it Team Drive is geared toward businesses just like Wrike and without this integration you may never gain or loose some/all of those people.

Lack of Google Team Drive integration in Wrike is a negative.  Any information you can pass along on your future support for Team Drives would be very much appreciated.

Here is another existing similar request for Team Drive integration that the Wrike Community Team has asked me to upvote so they can keep track in a single thread.

This really needs to be a priority for Wrike, if you are going to integrate with G Suite, it is silly to not integrate with Team Sites. We are currently having to copy paste links to the Google Document, which is inconvenient. We are REALLY missing the lost functionality of being able to easily link to documents in G Suite since Team Drives were rolled out.  Since you are basing this on upvotes instead of basing on number of paid licenses, I've asked my team members to visit this page and up-vote this request. We are not a big company, but hopefully it will help.

Inability to link to team drive has become a pain point for our team, to the extent that it is affecting adoption of wrike as a platform.

I wanted to add my vote of support to this thread. As an agency we are always looking for ways to be more efficient in managing our projects and collaboration, as well as version control, are an important part of this. For this reason we are moving to Wrike and for that same reason we use Google Team Drive.

Not having this integration undermines the usefulness of Wrike as a platform for any business that leverages G Suite.

I highly recommend pushing this integration to 'high priority'

This feature is very important for us, as we are moving all of our team files into Team Drives from on-premise storage. Please get the ability to attach files from Team Drives added!

We recently migrate to G Suites without notice that Wrike isn't integrate Team Drive yet. We all working remotely and this is almost critical to our team to share files. Please consider this features in your road map very soon! Thank you

I just conformed Google team drive file can be select and uploaded from task's upload dialog box. Both Excel and Google sheet can be attached. With Drive file stream on Windows desktop, you can drag & upload regular files but not google doc, sheet or doc but to me it just minor issues. 

Big thanks to the dev team. I appreciate the fact that you guys actually hear what we need :)

Thanks for the update today.

After a Chrome tab reload, I was able to see "Team Drives" in the "Select a File" dialog box.

For our small group of users, this is a big change for the better.

Thanks again.

Glad you guys like the Team Drives update!

@Birks Hi there, just wanted to double check about uploading from Excel - in that case you're attaching an Excel document from your computer to a Wrike task?

Hi Stephanie

I can upload Excel file using Wrike upload dialog box or drag & drop from my Windows directly without any problem. 

What I can't do is to drag & drop Google Sheet file from Google File Stream directly (on Windows) to Wrike task.

However, this is same behavior when I use personal Google Drive so your Team Drive integration has no issues. Sorry for the confusion.

Shouldn't this feature be listed as "completed"?
