    Yes, I also see some efficiency that would be gained from this feature. Please give this some prioritized consideration. It will show more anticipation of the user needs rather than internal driven priorities.  Dare I say "Customer Centric"!!!

    It would be extremely helpful to have Wrike sync with our Outlook Calendars.

    Since Wrike is a planning tool, if it could acknowledge an existing calendar (and availability) to help schedule tasks this would be beneficial. For example, if an Outlook sync existed and I needed to schedule tasks for my teams, but they have a training already scheduled (marked as busy) for 4 hours on a Tuesday, it would show that time in Wrike as unavailable also, and so it would not consider that time in task assignment.

    Most of our task assignments do not take a full day (8 hours).  I know that is how Wrike is currently focused, which is makes the system very challenging to use at times.  This is also a challenge in scheduling work since not all of our employees work 8 hour days.

    Dear Wrike Team,

    we are also seriously considering adopting Wrike to boost up our PM efficiency but

    final decision hasn't been taken yet since we are still vetting which tool best suits our needs.

    A full integration of Outlook calendar into Wrike will be a decisive factor when we as a team will vote which

    tool we will subscribe for

     

    Thank you

    Wrike Team,

    This is an actual issue with our planning tool for our development team.  We need to double the information coordinating meeting with the outlook calendar and our wrike task. If we would have this synch, our success rate of users would be better.

    thx u

    Hi all,

    we struggle a lot with this. We have to duplicate all the tasks.

    first wrike task has no due time that is important to schedule every meeting, second would be extremely important add capability to create wrike task ad automatically see it in outlook calendar.

    the overlapping of calendars is not a solution.

    Every company works with MS outlook and shares calendars.

    please review your priority in improving the product.

    thanks all

    Hi - I'd also love to see better integration between wrike and outlook calendars so we can schedule our wrike tasks in and around our outlook schedules.

    Please add this functionality to the short-term roadmap.  This would greatly enhance ease of use and adoption within our organization.  I also agree that it should look at the meeting duration and set the task/activity in Wrike accordingly.  Furthermore, it should automatically "enable effort." 

    Thank you!

    I would love to import my outlook calendar into Wrike. Then I can see my all meetings and task in one platform which will allow me to better task schedule.

    The ability to import our outlook calendar into Wrike would be a time save. Currently we have meetings that do no reflect in Wrike. As we assign out projects and tasks to team members it would be awesome to see their workload in a holistic view, where sure they may have 4 hours allotted to a specific task and their workload looks as though I can assign them 4 more hours -when in reality they will be sitting in 4 hours worth of meetings. 

     

    Please, please consider giving this a go.

    I keep getting multiple requests from our team members for Outlook calendar integration; and for it to include ability to "enable effort" across the board so that whether in the app, the email integration, or the future calendar integration... that we should also be able to enable effort at the same time.  

    Thanks!

    I agree with all the folks out here! We have regularly scheduled, billable meetings with our clients that are "work" and should be considered in resourcing and effort reports. We have to build those from scratch.

    Also, if I could schedule the 2 hours assigned to me for a task and hold time on my Outlook calendar to actually get my Wrike tasks done without duplicating that in Outlook, that would be fabulous! Plan the work, work the plan...
