Wrike profile calendar integration

It would be great to be able to integrate Outlook with the calendar in our Wrike profile so that vacations don't have to be entered twice. This would also assure that the vacation postings are in sync. The ultimate option would be that we could invite the Wrike profile calendar from an Outlook invite.

Hi Meshelle, welcome to the forums and thanks for the suggestion! Would the other way around also work for you? In that case, you would update vacation postings in Wrike and push data to Outlook.

Hi Stephanie, Yes, that would be wonderful.  Could you show me how to do that?

Hi Meshelle, I apologize I should have been more clear - I wanted to know if, hypothetically, it would work for you to push data from Wrike to Outlook. It's a question our Product team would probably ask, so I just wanted to get your input and thoughts. Have you seen the iCal feature though? You can export tasks from Wrike Folders/Projects to Outlook using iCalendar feeds. It would be a workaround, but if you created vacation days as tasks, you would be able to import them to the calendar in Outlook.

Unfortunately, the workaround just adds another step.  One would still have to update the profile calendar + create vacation day tasks + push to Outlook.  It doesn't seem efficient. 

It would be super if you could "invite" Wrike to the Outlook appointment.  SharePoint and Outlook works this way and syncs automatically.  Hopefully the Product Team can come up with something.  They are a smart bunch!

Thanks for your help.

In addition to this it would be great to be able to import a calendar to a Group for dates that apply to all such as Holidays, Training, etc.

In addition, when we have staff meetings or off-sights we can't block this time out from scheduling for a group or members.  Integration with with Outlook would allow this to happen automatically making them unavailable for task scheduling.

Hey everyone!

As of 1/16/2019 export to iCalendar is no longer available, that is why you were getting an error. If you need further help, I'll be happy to raise a Support ticket for you. 

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else!

Hi Lisa,

This feature was very useful for us, since everything in our worklife does NOT happen in Wrike...
I don't understand your answer, do you mean you can raise a support ticket to make this feature available again ?

Thanks

After a few years of adopting wrike, we have come to the conclusion that the calendar in wrike - and all it's functionality - is utterly useless.  Because companies do their actual WORK using outlook.  That is where meetings are scheduled, vacations are planned, etc.  Since wrike acknowledges this with an integration into email... why on Earth ignore the other core component of CALENDARS?????

Nobody wants to have to use 2 separate calendars to track things.  Nobody.  An integration into outlook CALENDAR is just as vital to Wrike's continued existence as the integration with email.  Think about that.

Your product is awesome, but this lack of core functionality will mean Wrike will not grow and be adopted as it should or could... and will eventually be replaced by another product that does everything you do, the way you do it, but also integrates with the main business calendar :(
