[Status: Not planned] Chat functionality

Our team would greatly appreciate it if Wrike would consider adding in a "live chat" feature into Wrike for users and collaborators.

www.Strikebase.com is a great example of a project management tool that includes encrypted (and searchable) chat functionality, which is great! This company also just released Zala (zala.net), which might be a great alternative if somehow integrated (perhaps you should contact them...:))

Anyways, this is a feature we'd love to bring into Wrike, since we're forced to either use Zala or What's App for those quick communication needs.

If possible, any chance you all will add a Calendar function so our team can glance at upcoming marketing campaigns and projects?  Just a thought...thanks!

Completely agree! Is there anything in the works to get an actual chat function added? Especially right now with so many people working off site or from home because of covid 19, this is very much needed.

Hey everyone, thank you for all of the feedback here! While the Product team are interested in something like this, it is currently not on the short-term roadmap. As soon as I have an update for you, I'll let you know.

A lot of people want chat!

Its all well and good having slack integration but if you could chat/video/ audio call even hold meetings in Wrike, it would blow everything else out the water. No need for Slack or Zoom or GoToMeeting.

Wrike can become one stop solution for office team by adding this feature into it, and i am sure nobody will want to use in other application for office communication once this feature is added.

 

Many new software are already coming up with aggregation of chatting and tasks allocation in organization, i think its right time for wrike to have this basic feature and make it complete solution.

As all have said before... a chat feature would be great! Just briefly checked out the Slack add in and it's just another thing... too many things... just want one thing. 😂

Guys, come on--get an optional chat feature going in this thing! You know you can do it! It doesn't have to be perfect to begin with-- just start it and then perfect it as you go! This is the one major element missing for it to be a perfect project management tool.

With too many communications tools, streamlining is the most efficient way to work with multiple teams. I work with teams that use MS Teams, and Zoom, then we have Google Chat, and text messages.. if my whole Team can use Wrike to comment, message, and call, our office will reduce the noise from at least 2 apps.
