    Hey Lisa,ย 

    I checked into the outlook integration, and it doesn't mention anything about calendars.ย 

    How does wrike integrate with specifically the calendar portion of outlook?

    Thanks

    there are 3rd party apps that will sync Google calendars with Outlook.ย  So you might want to consider using the Wrike Google calendar integration and then sync Google with Outlook.ย  Here are a few options:

    @Tony @Paul @Husain Hey, sorry, I misunderstood you - Wrike for Outlook helps interact with Wrike from your inbox: turn an email into a Wrike task, edit existing Wrike tasks, send and receive comments. Currently Wrike doesn't provide a native integration with Outlook Calendars.
    That said, you can still use Zapier to integrate Wrike with an Outlook Calendar in case you have an Office365 account. Also, you can try using Workato to set up the integration. There's also an option to use API. For this, please check out our Developers portal.
    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Also agree.ย  Most of our teams are saying they need to integrate their Tasks directly to their Outlook calendar as well.ย  Hoping this makes the roadmap soon as it should be a quick fix.ย ย

    Having deadlines and due dates sync with our Outlook calendars would be very helpful. Calendar visualization is the easiest way for a lot of users to see timelines and balance their work schedules.ย

    @All, I've moved this to the Product Feedback topic, rather than API as it's evolved that way now.

    @Paul Roston - did you get a chance to test the options you've linked. I don't use Outlook, but I'm interested to hear your feedback ๐Ÿ‘

    I have tried a few but the more I think about it the more I feel that it needs to be more of a native function.ย  Deciding what tasks should or should not be shared loaded into outlook and visa-versa has to be straight forward and intuitive.ย  So far I donโ€™t see any of the options being a very usable solution. ย

    Any update on this feature request? Would love to see the task auto sync to Exchange calendar, and then update if the date for the task is changed or modified in Wrike.ย

    Just to help the Wrike guys out. I'm happy to make intros to teams or groups in Microsoft to help get this done. (Microsoft Employee disclaimer)

    A Couple easy options for this are integration with Planner through Microsoft Graph API ->ย 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/planner-concept-overview

    This would be the best long term solution (IMO) since you're already tied into Microsoft Graph & O365 Authentication

    ORย 

    another option is to make a Wrike plugin for Microsoft Flowย https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/

    Tons of cool things could be done with this connection.

    Integrating to Outlook Calendar is paramount for Wrike to be a superior product in the industry and not a Meh product.ย  Sooner or later, we will have to make the change to MS Planner if we cannot see the outlook integration addressed here.ย  Wrike is a very nice and robust product that is missing here.ย  I don't want to invest time for a work around.ย  This is your product and these requests have been in demand for some time.ย ย

    I agree that there needs to be an integration directly with Outlook calendar.ย  I've been saying this for many months.ย  But what I've found to be very useful in the mean time is to create a Google Calendar, sync Wrike with your Google Calendar, and sync Outlook with Google Calendar.ย  All of these are very easy to do and you don't require ANY 3rd party software. An important point is that the overall integration will only be as good as the current Google/Wrike integration, which is one direction only. You can't add things to the Wrike calendar from your Outlook Calendar.

    For people who live in their Outlook email and calendar, Wrike could easily fill in the gap that exists in the Microsoft suite regarding shared project and task management. The Microsoft product line has at least half a dozen solutions to individual task and project management, but none of them shared, affordable, and easily integrated with the Outlook calendar. Wrike already has a good plugin for Outlook email. Outlook is still used by millions of users, and leaving this integration out of the Wrike product seems a significant missed opportunity. It will be the deciding factor for our ongoing use of Wrike.

    The calendar is the basis by which our users live their lives these days, and fully integrating their project and task schedules is key to managing workload and other responsibilities.

    Checking to see if this is on the roadmap. In our particular use case of Wrike, we are using this for service delivery project tracking. As we assign a project or for task to a user and set a date, it would be super helpful if Wrike could create a calendar invite for the user that was assigned a task. Otherwise, we are setting a date for a task in Wrike, and then having to switch to Outlook and create a calendar invite. This is super inefficient and should be addressed very soon. They already have Google integration, but are missing the much larger group of Exchange/O365 user base.ย

    They do have an integration tool but you must subscribe to Wrike Integrate to use it.ย  That's $20/month per user.ย  Pretty expensive.ย  I looked at the google calendar sync option, and the google calendar is now part of the Wrike Integrate program, so that doesn't seem to be an option either.ย  Zapier is a pay per user account from what I see, so that option is once again an additional expense.ย  The Microsoft flow api seems like a bit of effort to resolve the problem, and non-tech people aren't going to invest the time or money into that.ย  I really haven't found any options that are viable solutions without spending hundreds of dollars per user per year.ย  That's frustrating.ย ย

    Would highly appreciate if Wrike would offer a solution to transfer the name, the assignee, status, start- and enddate of a task in my outlook calendar. This would make the live much easier for me and my colleagues, which are already using Wrike for Projectmanagment!

    Wrike does offer calendar integration with Google Calendar.ย  I believe this is free and just needs to be turned on.ย 

    https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/214413365-Google-Calendar-Integration

    If you don't have a Google Calendar it's simple to make one.Then you can create tasks in your Google calendar using the Wrike calendar interface.ย  Then you can sync your Google Calendar with Outlook and you can see any event that is put into the Google Calendar in Outlook.

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/see-your-google-calendar-in-outlook-c1dab514-0ad4-4811-824a-7d02c5e77126

    This is not the most elegant or complete solution but it will but tasks into Outlook.

    Iยดm not sure if it will work for our enterprise account because we are very limited by using "middleware" for dataintegrations. Iยดll check your proposal an come back with information thanks. Thanks for your feedback Paul!

    Unfortunately adding $1499 per month to use Wrike with Outlook isn't a viable option. That's why we're using Smartsheet now. The calendar integration is free.
