Sync whole Wrike "My Work" to Google / Outlook Calendar

In order to simplify and get an easy overview, instead of exporting all Project calendars and integrate them into Outlook/Google seperatly, why don't we get a feature to export "all" tasks/projects/what ever"?

I would recommend to add a calendar export function to the "My Work" tab, that would very helpful.

I have numerous user complaints about the difficulty of simultaneously maintaining two calendars: Outlook Calendar and Wrike.

Both are essential to performing one's work duties, but Outlook Calendar bookings aren't visible in Wrike, and vice versa.

Still, one must consult Outlook Calendar in order to schedule one's Wrike schedule, and vice versa one must consult Wrike in order to decide on accepting or declining Outlook Calendar events.

Reserving block(s) of time for a task in Wrike would need to be displayed as "busy" in Outlook Calendar, so that reservation is respected when others in the user's company/department/team are organizing meetings, workshops, all hands meetings, etc.

Also, when users reserve vacation time and other out of office events in Outlook Calendar, those should be displayed in Wrike, both for the users themselves, when they schedule tasks themselves, or someone else () schedules tasks for internal resources.

Everyone's Outlook Calendar contains meetings, workshops, all hands meetings, vacations and other out of office events that affect their availability, but in Wrike a resource's Outlook Calendar bookings are invisible (except if the Wrike user really maintains a duplicate of their Outlook Calendar in Wrike - which is too much to ask of any employee). Which means that e.g. project managers or team principals can't respect the resource's existing bookings, and leads to an unacceptable amount of back and forth between the one doing the resourcing/scheduling and the resources themselves.

Wrike’s “My To Do” task list should show up as a calendar you can subscribe to in Outlook Calendar. And the user's Outlook Calendar bookings should be made visible in Wrike's various views, where the user's available time is being booked for performing project tasks.
