    Hi, Stephen! Ourย consulting business uses MS Outlook for typical purposes (i.e., meetings, appointments, travel plans). We are also using Wrike for managing our projects and our non-billable tasks. We would like to find a way to not have to use two calendars since many of our Outlook items relate to our Wrike items. So, for example, it would be great if a task (with a definitive beginning and an end) could be selected to appear in our Outlook calendar so that we don't have to look at both programs to determine our availability. If that doesn't make sense, I'd be happy to verbally explain.ย 

    Thanks for asking more about my suggestion!!

    Thanks for the further detail here Keri, it really helps.

    I'm wondering have you tried the Task on iCalendar feed? How did you find this solution?ย

    Hey, Stephen. I hadn't tried the iCalendar feed but just did...so, thanks! However, only "appointments" show when you do this.ย  Nothing is showing up in the calendar that was imported so I'm curious how to get tasks with start and end points to appear. Also, my hope was that it would integrate with my existing calendar rather than as a separate calendar.

    Feels like we're getting close to making this a bit more useful...cheers, Keri

    Thanks for getting back Keri. There's no way to have the sync like you've described above but I think the iCalendar feed might be helpful for now.

    Our PM team review a Feedback post where we're collecting suggestions around Calendars - it would be great for the Product Team to hear your feedback there too ๐Ÿ™Œ

    We use our tasks to schedule crews daily and would be so helpful if we can schedule times within Wrike. Instead all the task are 1 day duration, pile up and don't have priority over another. I saw that you guys are trying with google mail and this is exactly what I need for outlook. We schedule multiple tasks by time throughout the day. If there a reason why you are only trying google mail? Will you guys get to Outlook?

    I have a similar situation with the integration of Wrike Calendars and OutLook calendars.ย  we are exploring using Wrike as a mechanism to request, monitor and report about time off (including vacation) requests.ย  I have a prototype running in Wrike using the calendar functionality and filtering options to provide visibility to our various departmental teams and the leadership team.ย  this prototype is working well in our testing but we too have a issue with managing two sets of calendars (wrike and outlook). in our company Outlook is a driving factor in our daily lifes (emails, meetings, events etc) and with the adoption of Wrike in various departments, they still don't want to have to manage two separate environments.

    having said all of this, i see there is some integration with email notifications, the outlook integration app (for more current releases of MS Office , we are currently running 2010) but i have not seen any mention of the integration and syn of calendars.ย  Our concept still is to use wrike to request and monitor time off but our leadership team would like to be able to see the time off requests integrated into the outlook calendar.ย  is this possible?ย  is there any more documentation on the subject ?

    in this community thread i see something about iCalendar feeds but the link is not valid. where can i find info on this subject

    I would like to echo the request of the users above. ย We would like to see the deadline dates and other reminder dates show up in Outlook calendar. ย Does the development team have anything in process?

    Another echo here. This MS Calendar integration will be so useful.

    Hi all, the team continues to collect your feedback at the post I mentioned above. Although it's not on the short-term roadmap it's certainly something they're collating now for when they review Calendars and possible integrations in the future.

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    The inability to add an event to my Outlook calendar and thus set a reminder is a big negative.ย  The inability to set a due TIME on a task is also a negative.ย  I don't want to use multiple calendars in multiple applications.ย  I want to integrate with a central calendar.
