Slack integration

Would be nice if Slack messages in reference to a Wrike task would be added to the comments of that Wrike task.

A project/folder may have many different tasks, and I won't have anything to do with most of them. So ideally, it would be great to be able to set it up per task, or even better, if I have been assigned to a task, it should know that my Wrike is integrated with my Slack account, and so should send me a Slack message accordingly (just like how email notifications work now).

I would love to have better Slack integration.   I'm tempted to switch to Asana despite being a Slack customer and having a huge amount of info on Wrike.  My team is using Slack more and it's becoming burdensome to do double data entry into Wrike.   Please Wrike, get beyond the basic integration and do a fuller integration like Asana into Slack.

Hi Perla, sorry for the delay getting back here 😇 The team don't have plans to add this to their short term roadmap ahead of other essential and highly voted for ideas.

However, they have expressed their interest and highlighted the potential with this integration and this idea and thread will be reviewed when it's up for discussion later this year. Thanks for posting/voting 👍

Phew; thought it was me! Yes this doesn't make sense to me either: should be able to direct Slack replies into the Wrike task comment stream.

My previous query is here:

Has anyone tried the Slack to Wrike integration via Zapier?  Is it any more robust than the current integration?

Adding in my two-cents here... Adding a more robust integration for Slack is SUPER valuable for my org. We previously used the integration before our migration from Asana to Wrike and found our workflows to be way more efficient. Many notifications are missed using the email notifications. 

Any advice on interim fixes?

If you have access to Wrike Integrate, it's fairly easy to create customized Slack notifications. Some of the recipes we've set up for Slack integration include:

  • Send a Slack direct message to each user @mentioned in a Slack comment, including a summary and link to the Wrike task
  • Alert a specific channel in Slack when a new task is created in a specific folder tree
  • Alert the task author via Slack direct message when any task they created has been updated
  • Alert a specific channel in Slack once a day with a list of any unassigned tasks in a specific folder tree
  • Automatically create a Wrike task and send a Slack notification to multiple channels when email arrives in a specific shared mailbox in Exchange
  • Send a Slack direct message to each user assigned to a new Wrike approval

Adding my +1 to this request... not being able to add additional slack comments to an existing wrike task is REALLY limiting the usefulness of this integration.  Ideally, the task and the comments would all have a link/reference to click to go directly back to the slack message.  Wrike needs to show Slack more love or people will head to Jira where the integration is much more robust.
