Wrike For Outlook - Email Attachments

Would like to be able to control what attachments from an email are added to the task in Wrike As it stands right now; all the attachments are automatically added, including image files from a signature. This is problematic and causes clutter to be cleaned up.

What would be great is to have the list of attachments show up that will be added and you have an option to uncheck the ones that you do not want to add.

I agree this is a needed feature as so many people have images in their footers - you end up with a lot of unneeded attachments (which are also taking up unnecessary space on Wrike file servers).

yes, it is painful to see how all the signature images clogg up the comments area. Plus, even if you delete the attachments in wrike, the system shows empty crosses instead. Not sure what's worse. Is there any chance to have this changed in near future??

our company just started using wrike and this is one of the biggest complaints, mainly because you have to go back into wrike to delete everything so peers aren't weeding through a bunch of nonsense to read comments

Agreed-we need this feature because we have sensitive client attachments that we do not want to share on wrike.

community team  Is this something that Wrike is currently working on?  This would be very beneficial for my company as well.

Would love the ability to disable adding of attachments via e-mail integration. We never use this functionality and it just adds clutter to our workflow. 

Or better yet, only include attachments specifically attached in the message, not anything included in the body.

If someone needs to include an attachment they do so in the request form, or by uploading directly. People who use email are just wanting an easy way to reply to a thread without loading up Wrike, and it's really only 1-5% of our user base.

This is something that seems to have changed where it stopped adding the images and now it adds every image from the entire email chaing (duplicate and triplicate often) to include all the images that people like to use in their email signatures (company logo, linkedIn, etc.).

We really need a way to control which attachments to include, if any, when using this integration.

The integration is such a great time saver....but not when I have to go back and delete 15 unnecessary attachments after I update the Wrike task.
