Wrike's Outlook Add-In

We know how important the Outlook add-in is to so many of your workflows (just check out the forums!) and we’re very excited to tell you that the new version of the add-in is available now.

All the details about how the new add-in works are on the Outlook Help Center page, but here are a few details.

What can you expect?

With the add-in you can

  • Edit Wrike tasks, which you’ve received an email notification about or which you’ve created from the add-in, directly in Outlook.
  • Convert emails into new Wrike tasks.
  • Add an email’s body text as a comment to a Wrike task.
  • See both the original email and the Wrike task side-by-side (the add-in doesn’t take over the original email anymore).

Anything Else?

The add-in

  • Is available for all user types (including Collaborators) and all account types.
  • Is more stable and faster than before.
  • Is compatible with only Microsoft emails (we’d love it to work with more email types, but this is a restriction on Microsoft's side).
  • Is not just for Windows desktop anymore. It’s available where you work - Windows, Mac, web browsers, iOS, and Android.

More improvements are coming, so let us know what you think and share your feedback with us.

Will the Outlook add-in be enhanced to pick up the assigned workflow of a particular folder/project you add an email as a task to? Now it defaults to the first available workflow and doesn't change once a folder/project is added.

@Donna Hello! That isn't on the planned roadmap at the moment, but the Product Feedback section is a great place to let the Product Team that you're looking for that type of functionality.

Can someone let me know how I can change the default Wrike account/profile used for the Outlook add-in.  It seems that once it's selected and you sign in, there is no way later to change it.  One of the Outlook instances on a laptop is pointing to my personal profile and not the one I need to use. 

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the add-in and that did not work.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
