    Hi Norm, thanks for posting your feedback on this! If possible, can you provide a little more information or a typical example of when this would be most useful so I can get a better understanding of what it might look like in Wrike?
    ย 
    Perhaps, if you use an online storage like Google Drive, then it might be useful for you to upload theย fileย there and thenย attach the item to Wrike orย paste a link in any task description or comments section. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

    Hello,

    An example would be a policy that required development. As different tasks are created for the review and approval, the current version of a Word document containing the policy could be advanced from one task to another seamlessly.

    Hi Norm, that's a very useful use case, thank you for coming back to me here.
    ย 
    For now, I think using a cloud storage like Google Drive to save this policy document and then creating a URL link to it would be a quick workaround for now. You can then use this link to paste into each task description or comment. You could useย Google Driveย to do this, or most cloud storage options seamlessly.

    Let me know what you think, thank youย ๐Ÿ‘

    This would be so helpful. For example, i project manage an in-house creative team. It would be great if I could move or easily access the attachments that a designer posts so that I could attach them to a new task for a client to see and approve. Currently, I have to download them from one task and upload them to the next. Seems like it could be easier.

    This, and the ability to share an attachment between tasks would be great as well; in our workflow we've found that one document (i.e. pdf) is often referenced/used in multiple tasks and projects. We often end up having 5 identical uploads - one would suffice...

    I think it a necessity. An online tool with the potential of Wrike should have a drag and drop interface. My own example meant downloading and saving files and then re-uploading to 26 discreet tasks. Such a facility would greatly increase user experience, lower download upload/bandwidth and storage used

    It definitely is a necessity to be able to link an attachment (file) to multiple tasks. As far as I understand, the reduction of redundancy is one of the main purposes of working with Wrike. Speaking of reduction of redundancy: it needs to be possible to merge two tasks or put one task in another one (as subtask) as well.

    I've just had one of my team upload attachments into the wrong task, so I would find it ideal if I could select them all and choose a 'Move' action where I can choose which task to dump them into

    I have the same use case as Sherri. We chose Wrike, in part, because of the ability to add files to a review. It would be great if the final version of a file from internal review task could be shared or added to a client review task without having to upload it a second time (similar to how a task or project can be shared to multiple folders).

    Agree! The ability to link multiple tasks to one source file would be super helpful. This is one of the strengths of a system like Airtable. It would be nice to see Wrike move more toward an asset management model where files are just files and then tasks can point to them (and then remove the reference). This would make the original request much easier. Need to move? Unlink, then Re-link in another task. Or the other way, go to a file and tell it which tasks to be connected to.

    This functionality would be amazing an an incredibly useful feature for our business. I often find that we are linking the same document/file to multiple tasks. It's not an effective use of space and can sometimes cause confusion if one doc is updated and another is not.ย 

    Also, the use case for using Google Drive does not work for our organisation. We all use Google Drive however our security policy does not allow users external to our company access, therefore we cannot link to a document in Google Drive and share with a customer/collaborator.ย 

    Would love an update on whether or not this feature is being reviewed?

    I agree with everyone above -- we use Wrike forms to gather information to start a marketing project, and our form has space for attachments (images, any previously written copy, etc.). It would be ideal to be able to move those files to the actual task I create from those request forms. Please add this functionality!

    Addendum: I downloaded the attachments from the request form, had to extract the files because they were automatically zipped, relocate the files to OneDrive (which pops up in a window almost entirely off my screen), and choose those files from OneDrive. I've gone through the attaching process three times and they still are not showing up. This is a testament to how much time your users would save with the added functionality!

    I have 'liked' this thread! Any chance there is an update to whether or not this is possible to move files from one task to another?ย

    This drag and drop feature is a must add - wasted time having to download and reuploadย 

    Would also be great to simply take a new file that was uploaded and then be able add as a new version; an example is team members do not always follow process and they upload a new file version but not to the file currently in review.ย  Then one needs to download and reupload as a new version in order for it to be captured in the review and have the history of versions viewable in proofing tool
