Did you know there’s a Wrike+G Suite Integration available? You can log in with Google SSO, use our Google Calendar integration, have Google Drive access, use the Gmail Gadget, and add users from your domain into Wrike with one click. Awesome, right?
But now you’re probably wondering: what are the main things about the G Suite integration implementation that I should know? Well, here are the three main things you should check:
1. Check if you actually want to use the G Suite integration.
I’ve listed how cool the G Suite implementation is, but maybe it’s not actually what you’re looking for. Here’s how you can easily decide:
- If your team is using Google products a lot - go for it.
- If you’re the only one (or one of the very few) to benefit from it, perhaps what you want can be achieved in other ways. For example, Google SSO is available without using the integration, as are Google Drive attachments, and the Calendar integration. And the Gmail Gadget can be (to a degree) substituted by using Wrike’s email Integration functionality and Wrike’s Chrome Extension.
- If you’re considering integrating for the ease of login AND for security reasons - perhaps our SAML 2.0 SSO solution is a better choice for you. It has stricter rules and restrictions which can be imposed for increased security.
- If your team is made up of heavy Microsoft users...we have SSO with Microsoft Credentials just for you!
2. Check if everyone on your team wants to be part of the integration.
Perhaps, someone doesn’t want to use the Gmail Gadget. Perhaps, they don’t want to see the Wrike app in their Google apps list. In this case, you can easily set up your account so that only some of the people on your domain use the G Suite integration. Check our post “Enable G Suite for Part of the Team” to see how to do this.
3. If you’re integrating an existing Wrike account with G Suite make sure you’re admin on both.
This seems pretty straightforward, but it’s so easy to switch between Google accounts and aliases, that it’s easy to make a mistake. Here’s what you really need to make sure of:
That the email you use to log in to the G Suite admin panel is the same as your confirmed email in your Wrike account (the account where you have admin or owner rights).
If the emails don’t match, you’ll see a new account creation window after you install the Wrike App in G Suite and start the integration setup. The window will look something like this:
If the emails do match you’ll see a window, with two choices, where you can either select the existing Wrike account to integrate with, or create a new one. If you don’t have these options, please try entering your email again. If everything is in order, we’ll send you an email and you’ll need to click a link to confirm your email address.
These are the main things to remember, otherwise, it’s an incredibly simple integration. Follow the steps described in the full article and if something, despite all the precautions, still goes wrong, no worries.
