    Agree. I really like using the desktop app with the ability to switch between tabs, but then have to switch to web-based just to upload a file.ย

    This is one of many issues with the desktop apps - the app should offer more than the browser but actually does less. The app appears to be a browser component anyway so not sure why these features aren't replicated at the very least.

    I don't understand at all why this isn't a function on the desktop app. Seems like a big mistake on Wrike's part. As it's been said, the desktop client typically offers more functionality and convenience over the online version, but this was bad judgement to not include the OneDrive integration with the desktop app. I'm a little shocked there aren't more posts on this. It should have traction so it gets fixed sooner.

    +1 on this. I prefer using the desktop app and being able to add a document from OneDrive without having to use the web app would make life easier and more efficient. I use OneDrive exclusively and the added time to switch over every time I need to add a doc from OneDrive is affecting my productivity.

    The feedback I received from Wrike is that they did have this functionality at one time on the desktop app, but due to inconsistencies in it's functioning, they removed it. That's basically all they said. They didn't mention if they are trying to fix those issues and bring it back which again is baffling that they wouldn't extend the functionality to the desktop app or make it a priority.
