File Tagging and Access

Wrike allows you to tag tasks so they sit in multiple locations, but I can't find a way to do the same with files. So we end up uploading the same files to multiple tasks because different users need access or we still need to reference a file after a task is completed. 


It would be great if file management had its own database access structure so you could tag a file to multiple tasks instead of having to reupload.

Hi Lesley, I can see how it would be helpful if the same attachment is related to many different tasks. If you use an online storage like Google Drive, you can upload the file there and paste a link in any task description or comments section, or Dropbox, where the same functionality is available.
 
Let me know what you think.

You might be interested in an existing post from Ivan about having a 
document manager in Wrike. There is also a post from Jonas that might interest you about listing all file attachments in a Projects. If these posts interest you, please vote for it, and also comment any additional information or use cases that will help our Product Team understand it's implementation. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lesley, quick update. You can now create a file Widget based on a Project. I think this meets your request - please let me know what you think.

You can find more information here on the Knowledge Base 👍

Thanks, Stephen. I'll certainly try it out. But I can't think of a workflow that that functionality improves for us. We have many, multiple projects with quick turnarounds and often can't find files that get lost in completed tasks. Creating a new widget for each of 5-10 new projects daily and updating and closing them out is not reasonable for us.

I agree with Lesley's initial feature request. In our work flow people are assigned to just the tasks they are responsible for. For example:

We have design tasks that are dependent on the copywriting. Once copywriting is finished and uploads their final file to their task, it would be great to have the ability to tag the file to show up on dependent tasks.

I know Projects have a "File" view, but that also shows files that aren't directly related to the task you're assigned to.
