Printing

I am a little disappointed because I go to a lot of meetings and would like to show my active projects and all I want to do is print a screen like this one. 

Yet, I don't have the option of printing it.  And if I try to print it, it's horrible and chopped up.  And if I export it to Excel it looks really bad.  If I try to recreate this through your reports, it takes a while to make the report have the info I want and again it does not print right.  Can you bring back the printing ability from this screen.

Agree. This would be VERY helpful for our meetings as well. Would also like to see a feature that allows us the option to print the calendars we set up in Wrike

Agreed.  I would like to be able to print out a complete project to take and share at meetings. My only additional comment would be an option to include the description for all tasks and sub-tasks.

Not be able to make PDFs and t having to export to excel is a major reason why I'm considering other project management tools

The printing functionality of Wrike is abysmal. I can't believe, in this day and age, that it's not better. I'm sure the argument will be, "In this day and age why are you printing anything?!", but, sometimes you just have to.

Asana has great printing capabilities. It just can't be "I'll pass that to our production team if enough people complain about it." What a feeble attempt at a function that should have been in place on day one.

Agreed, we would like to print the table view or the tasks list. It is a shame we cannot do it...

I have actually moved to another product precisely because of this limitation. I love nearly all the functionality that Wrike has and think that the flexibility and design overall is terrific. But not being able to extract and print effectively to present information is exceptionally frustrating and has compelled me to sacrifice other functionality that Wrike has to utilize a product that enables printing. As the other commenter above noted, I would think this shouldn't require people being so incredibly frustrated that they are compelled to comment and "vote"... it seems like a poor way to gauge user needs/frustrations. Really hate to leave the product but I had no other choice.

Hello-reports look much better on the wrike platform, so we'd love to be able to print reports and table views rather than print from excel

Printing, especially Gantt charts, would be ever so helpful. Currently, it appears that there is no way to do that.

I agree.  Printing is a much needed feature!

I'm shocked to see so many different threads spanning multiple years that request printing or pdf creation of reports and somehow that feature is not addressed, even with a work-around.  exporting to xls and printing or converting to pdf is not sufficient.  Too much visual information changes in the export.

Why would you buy/create/use a package you can't print from?

It looks like we aren't the only people needing this. I haven't seen a system you couldn't print from before.

I've lost heart with making comments in these forums because it appears nothing ever happens but anyway +1. Should be able to print.

Hi everyone, thank you for all of your feedback and apologies for the delay since the last update.

While it is possible to print the Task view, List view, and Gantt Chart, it is currently not possible to print directly from Table View or Reports. I understand that this can be frustrating, but rest assured that all of your feedback is being passed on to our Product team. While we would love to implement every request on the Community, there are multiple reasons why this is not possible. You can read more about the process here

As soon as I have any updates, I'll let you know. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or any further feedback that our Product team can use in their future discussions about this.

I share your frustrations!  I'm two weeks away from quarterly report time and still have not real solutions to the lack of printing capacity...  I will now waste about an hour generating pdf reports for project components that I thought I'd be able to simply print when I set them up...

My colleagues and I have worked out a hack where I cut and paste raw html code from the view of interest into a template file we've generated, then view that html page and print to pdf.  It's "prettier" than the version I get from downloading to excel and then trying to reformat and print. It takes about the same amount of time (which is much more than I thought I would need to put into this when I purchased the product).

I am, once again, trying to print quarterly reports and once again cannot do so directly.  Not only that, but the work around I had spent several hours creating 6 months ago, then spent several hours fixing 3 months ago due to coding changes in Wrike is now broken again.  

This is just not a viable way for our project to function.  I will need to explore other platforms for our project.
