Wrike Proof | Upload files within a comment
If a client wants to have many images changed in a design he always has to write e.g. image number into the comment and upload the image file in the wrike task.
Other tools solve it way faster. They allow uploading files natively WITHIN a comment. This way it's perfectly clear to which comment a file belongs to
In addition to my initial comment I have come across this feature request => Upload files as guest user without account
I have seen that there is no way for a guest user to upload files. Example: Guest user wants photo to be changed. His comment would be: „Please use this photo“ => but there is no way for a guest user to upload an additional file! Please implement this feature because this is really heavily missing!!!
Thanks for posting, Michael Pucher!
Regarding uploading files within a comment - the team has long-term plans to add this - we'll keep you posted once we know more 🙂

great to hear ... this one is urgently needed too ... especially for guest comments!
Thanks and best regards
Please add this feature!!
This is something our guest reviewers ask about at least once a week. It's the one major thing that we still have to use email for, and that often opens the door for reviewers to make additional comments via email so we end up with edits in multiple places instead of all in the Wrike proof. This has been a standard feature in every other proofing tool we've used.
Thanks for your comment => same here ... this is one of the most important features, that are missing!!!
Thank you for this feedback, TheDesignerd! It's been shared with the Product team.
We often spec out our designs with clients using the review/proofing viewer and it is really handy for both sides to be able to upload attachments to comments.
I would suggest these initial features;
I heartily agree with Richard's first 2 suggestions.
On the topic of where files appear, this would be an instance where the ability to sort, tag or categorize attachments would be a huge help. Here's my post about that issue. https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360049531854-Tagging-Categorizing-attachments
So a guest reviewer would add attachment & in our FILES section, we would see the header that says X FILES IN REVIEW as well as a category for FROM COMMENTS (could include files attached both from task comments as well as review comments & would continue to display the date of upload & name of uploader). Ideally there would be some way to easily jump from the related comment to the file or vice versa rather than just going by reading the filename in the comment in case we're dealing with low-info filenames like stock image #s.
Hi Richard Benson and TheDesignerd,
Thank you for sharing these examples, I've passed them on to the Product team. No updates here at the moment; I'll be sure to keep you posted.
This is a very necessary addition to proofing. We like to consider Wrike our "Center of Truth." Until this feature is added, we have to go to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or emails to get the assets the guest reviewers and internal reviewers want to share. We miss assets, or have to hunt them down for hours. The time saved by using this system, we lose hunting down assets. Is there any estimation of when this will be implemented?
Thank you so much!!
Hi Jill, thank you for sharing your use case and feedback! At the moment, there are no short-term plans to introduce such functionality. I'll pass on your feedback and will be sure to let you know here if there are any changes.
Please let me know if you have any other questions🙋🏻♀️
