Uninstall Wrike Outlook Add-In

I cannot seem to uninstall Wrike for Outlook 2016.  Under "Uninstall the Add-in" on Wrike's support page, it only says "More details on how to uninstall an add-in are available on Microsoft's support center."  Microsoft's instructions don't work, since the add-in is not listed under File>Options>Add-Ins.  The instructions I found on Google tell me to click "Insert on the top ribbon of any Office Application that has Wrike installed."  There is no "Insert" at the top of the Outlook 2016 Window.  

How do I get rid of Wrike in Outlook 2016?

I'll do a bit of research to get an answer, but first, why are you removing the Add-In? Are you having issues?  I love the Add-In and can't imaging not having it.

This applies to O365/Outlook 2016.

While in the desktop version of Outlook, click on File. Do not choose Options, instead, scroll down and look for Manage Add-ins.  You will need to select that and then log into your account when the pop up appears. (If it is grayed out, it means the Admin has disabled it, you will need to contact the Admin.)

Once logged in, un-check the box for Wrike.  

Or, if you have OWA access to your Outlook, log in, click on the Gear icon on the upper right corner and select Manage add-ins.  

This is also how you would ADD the Wrike Outlook add-in. 

Hope this helps. 

@michael I really hope you decide to leave the add-in installed. If you are having issues with it or need any assistance, please reach out to Wrike Support.

Actually, I am pretty unhappy with the entire Wrike experience.  I will continue to use it because that is what our IT team decided to use, but nearly every time I try to do anything with Wrike, my productivity grinds to a halt.

Just a one of quite a few examples....(1)  the instructions that you provided here for uninstalling Wrike do not work for me, and (2) I was given the correct instructions by another one of your staff, 11 hours before your response.

I decided to uninstall the Outlook add-in for a few reasons.  It is pretty slow to load, it does nothing more than copy/paste an E-mail into the body of a Write ticket, and it contorts the signature line of our E-mails into something barely readable, and difficult to delete.

As a semi-professional in organizational skills, project management, and especially UI design and usability, I can tell you that I do not enjoy Wrike at all.  Sorry.

@Michael, I am saddened to hear that Wrike doesn't work for you, it has made my life so much easier. I'm sorry that the instructions didn't work for you, they did for me, but we probably have different security abilities.  I appreciate you think i am part of the Wrike staff, but I'm not, i'm just a Wrike Enthusiast.  

I hope you are able to view some of the tutorials, or maybe even join in on a seminar, they helped me tremendously when i first started. 

Best of Luck. M

@Michael, sorry to hear of this experience. The uninstall process is from the Outlook management page of your account, outlined here on our Knowledge Base, but I can see the Support Team has helped with that already.

If there's anything else I can do to help, I'm more than happy to discuss here. I'd like to find out what experiences are slowing your processes down so I can better understand what we can do to help with that straight away.

I've reached out to your account's AM to make them aware of this experience and they can work with your account owner to help with any areas needing support from us.

@Marj, thank you for helping out 👍
