Sync Wrike Tasks to Outlook Tasks

I spoke with the support team who suggested I post here - what I would love to be able to do is have tasks in Wrike synchronize with the tasks in Outlook.  That is to say, not appear on the calendar view or related to emails, but literally within the tasks view and/or tasks pane on the "Outlook Today" screen.  At present I am manually creating a companion task in one or the other - ex: if a task is created and assigned to me in Wrike, I create one to mirror it in Outlook and place a permalink with the body area - this works, but adds a level of effort when trying to keep everything aligned.

I have not looked into whether I could sync to an interim system that Wrike has an integration with to accomplish this - i.e: sync Wrike > XX > Outlook > XX Wrike - which I'll do, if anyone has found a way to accomplish this I'd appreciate hearing from you.  If there isn't then hopefully this is something that could be an enhancement to the product in the future.

Cheers!

Jonathan

I have had the same frustration.  My solution was to use Mindjet MindManager 2018 with my office 365 business subscription. 
I think people put down Microsoft so they can sell their own products.  In my opinion, Asana is the most highly marketed and found on google search and the least effective. 

The MindManager integration with Outlook is outstanding. All the views you see in Wrike are available in MindManager. 

My tasks are synced across all my devices.  Android, cloud, outlook, SharePoint, task web-parts, Teams, and MindManager etc. 

I am sorry to say this on a Wrike blog, however, I use office 365 business conjunction with SharePoint, task web parts, teams and Microsoft  365 groups.  By adding MindManager, I can create any view I want and update everywhere.

Yes, agree!  Agree with the need to sync Wrike tasks with Outlook tasks.  I have my email up all day and to see tasks in this format would be extremely helpful!

Hi Adrian Hess , we got the answer to develop our plugin or order this feature from Wrike. This compartmentalization is no longer in keeping with the times.

For me it's very important. We are evaluating a new project management tool for next year, because wrike doesn't allow the full syncronisation with Outlook tasks.
