    Hi Ross, it's a good idea and can see how this could come in useful.

    I assume that using the comments section is not the type of communication format you're looking for.  However, we have a great integration with Slack chat which might be of interest to you.

    This was suggested by Andrey and it would be great if you go there and vote so we can keep all suggestions in one place for the Product Team's review.

    As for the calendar suggestion, there's a popular suggestion, Calendar view of task assignments. Again if this interests you, it would be beneficial to vote for it there.

    Thanks for posting 🙂

    We would LOVE Wrike to have its own Slack-like chat where messages can be typed and @ mentions can be done in a place where it doesn't need to be within a Task. Then we could stop using Slack. This feature could be as simple as expanding the functionality of the Stream view so that there's a field at the top of Stream where people can enter a chat message "unattached" to any particular Task. Reducing the number of apps where our team needs to look for "did you see my message about that?" instances would be great. You'd just need to include the ability to have threads/nested chats.

    You could expand this further (beyond the Stream view) if you wanted, by adding a Channel option to the Folders and Projects pane on the left. For any Wrike users who also use Slack, it could allow them to centralise their chat/conversations into Wrike and make it the hub, instead of Slack.

    I agree, MC...trying to reduce the number of required apps or software, even if connected, is our main goal.  Thanks!

    This is the one big deficiency with Wrike.  I want to replace Podio, but currently can't until Wrike has a chat area or plugin.

    I absolutely concur. The chat function is Podio is a huge plus for us. We really want / need to migrate to Wrike, and having a chat function built in would make it a no-brainer to switch. Even just a box on the screen where you can to @ mentions would be fantastic.

    Agreed. The chat feature is badly needed in Wrike.

    Huge upvote, yes please. We need live chat in Wrike. We're literally sharing links to tasks with each other over our chat system, to tell them when there have been updates. Live Chat should be built in.

    Thanks, Joseph!

    Just to clarify. Sixty votes stand as the threshold for when the Product Team will review and consider the idea. They will then provide a Status so we know where the idea stands in terms of the existing development roadmaps.

    This doesn't mean they don't look and review posts with under 60 votes. If it's related to ongoing developments or if it simply interests them, they'll read it and consider the suggestions and use cases provided.

    The Product Teams actually spend a lot of them here reading your ideas (they could even be watching this now 👀)

    So please follow Joseph's instructions and vote, vote vote! 🙌

    More info on how Voting and Statuses works here.

    I agree! Chatting with team and collaborators in Wrike, and not having it need to be associated with a task or project would be a great asset! Trying so hard to keep all work related items of teams email inbox is difficult without having a chat function right in Wrike. I do not want to add another tool to achieve this function!

    I agree with everyone in this thread. Slack is great, but yet another app of the endless array of apps already in use. Chat functionality would be a big win for Wrike.

    I totally agree that a chat functionnality is a must. Slack is great but I'd rather have the chat here in  Wrike.

    Thanks guys!

    If Wrike successfully pulls off this "live chat" feature, no doubt it will be the best project management software.

    Hi again everyone, a quick update: the suggestion is currently not planned by our Product team. However, it doesn't mean that it will never be implemented, so I'll let you know if the status ever changes.

    Thanks for posting here!

    We just transitioned to Wrike and definitely need this chat system implemented.

    Yes we agree. The slack app integration is pretty unusable, and we would switch the full team over from Slack if you integrated any kind of functional communication. Seems like a big oversight. Take my money!

    Yes please! I've used multiple project management platforms and currently am working with Basecamp. However I find I like Wrike better but I'm torn because Basecamp has a dm feature although I like Slack better. If Wrike has something similar to Slack built in I would be using Wrike right now.

    I'm either going to be staying with Basecamp because of the dm feature, or going to Wrike + Slack like I've done in the past, but this would be a no brainer for me to go Wrike if there was built in chat.

    Totally agree with previous posts. Chat would be a huge improvement! We try to use as few different enviroments for communication as possible.

    I don't see a huge need to better connectivity between wrike and other chat apps. The possibility to use only one app is totally different level.
