Wrike Lightspeed 💥
We are super excited to announce the release of our newly updated platform - Wrike Lightspeed! Our platform encompasses three core values that span across every single product launch at Wrike - ease of use, customizability, and scalability - enabling teams, departments, and organizations to work together as one. Wrike Lightspeed offers the most modern UI and connected experience helping organizations reach the fastest way to productivity.
In short, Wrike Lightspeed is our platform that embraces the following new and updated functionality:
Ease of use
New look & feel - as our functionality evolves, so does our design. Enjoy the modern and enhanced look and feel with Wrike Lightspeed ⚡
New home page (Wrike Labs) - the new home with everything an individual contributor needs to have quick access to inbox, tasks that are assigned to you, or recent items you’ve visited, and AI recommended tasks.
New sidebar and toolbar (Wrike Labs) - the new side panel that includes our toolbar is now presented in a single sidebar instead of two which has all your essential tools and pinned items.
New Table View (Wrike Labs) - provides a faster and smoother way to manage your work. The main enhancement is that you can now navigate around the table with an item open on the right panel (i.e. task or project) and switch easily to another task with one click.
New Board View (Wrike Labs) - an easy-to-understand, drag-and-drop Kanban-style view that allows you to see all your tasks in a project, folder, or space in a simple layout, grouped by the status of the item. The updated view includes subtasks and custom field visibility, the ability to adjust the order of the columns, workflow editing, and more.
Calendar View - allows you to quickly visualize your work items such as tasks, projects, and custom item types on a timeline to keep track of what needs to be worked on and when. It gives a week/month/quarter/yearly overview to help you make decisions on what needs to be added or rescheduled in the current projects.
New Analytics View - a fully enhanced project tracking view providing you with the ability to take actions within the view to ensure an uninterrupted flow.
External Requester Collaboration - you can now communicate with external people outside of your Wrike account by receiving and sending emails directly from Wrike tasks to external email addresses.
Custom Item Types - an enhanced platform capability that allows you to create work that mirrors your business processes in the Wrike workspace using your own terminology. For example, your team will be able to create and access domain-specific types of items like service requests, sales quotes, product bugs, objectives, candidate cards, and as many more as you can think of.
Customizable User Types - a new feature that allows you to create configured access control and build custom roles. You can now customize not only existing user types but edit the list of user types by creating new ones, renaming them, and deleting existing user types from your account.
Space Workflows - a new Space administration capability enabling fully independent customization of how each team or department works. Space Workflows empower team leaders who own the day-to-day processes, to seamlessly build and manage workflows for their team.
There are even more updates coming to our platform, so stay tuned and share your reactions and/or questions on Wrike Lightspeed! 👇
