    @Holly Just wanted to check if you've seen Wrike's Outlook add-in? It lets you add emails (including attachments) to Wrike tasks directly from the add-in.ย

    @Stephanie: The add-in only copies text and attachments. No text formatting, no links, no embedded graphics ...ย โ˜น๏ธ

    @stephanie yes--I mean like once you already have an email open, just drag and drop attachments directly and quickly. I will try using the forward feature too tho--just ideally i wouldn't want the email body/copy attached to the task--just the actual email attachment

    @Heinz @Holly Got it! So it sounds like there may be two different requests - one related to attachments, and then keeping formatting, etc when creating a task from an email?

    @stephanie, yes, I was originally asking that Outlook email attachments (s/a jpegs, pdfs, etc.) be easily dragged from an email to a Wrike task (w/o having the extra step required to save to a desktop/folder before uploading to Wrike) and then it sounds like @heinz is requesting that formatting be kept more intact...

    @holly and @stephanie you're both right: I'd like to drag und drop the whole Outlook message into a Wrike keeping the attachments and formatting intact (and preferably creating a link to the original message),

    Interesting, I was actually looking for the exact same thing, to be able to drag an email and it should create a link for the entire team to be able to click on it, and it shouldย open as an outlook file.ย I believe it is very important since many things are happening through emails, back and forth.ย

    Our team would also really love to be able to drag and drop attachments from outlook too. We currently save them to a desktop folder then drag and drop from there. We work out of shared inboxes which the outlook plug in don't work from so we can't use that to solve the problem either.

    I would LOVE both of these features to be available. To be able to drag attachments directly from Outlook would be such a time saver. And to be able to drag the entire msg file would be amazing as well. Curently we have to save both to our hard drive and then upload all day long. Is there any update on this feature?

    Hi everyone! For now there's no update, so please keep the conversation going! It will also help hugely if other Community members voted here as well, so I'll refer others here when applicable ๐Ÿ‘
