Hi everyone 👋
We have recently held a webinar on all things Wrike Lightspeed, where our VP of Product Alexey Korotich spoke about our new functionality and updated interface. Big thanks to everyone who joined and asked questions! 🙌
Today, we’d like to cover some of the most popular questions we heard from you. And if you’d like to watch the recording, you can check it out here.
Wrike Lightspeed Q&A
What is Wrike Lightspeed?
It is our newly updated platform that helps you do your best work. Its concept is based on three core principles - ease of use, customisability, and scalability. It includes various innovations and design improvements like the new and updated views, updated look & feel, custom item types, and much more.
How do I access Wrike Lightspeed?
All the elements are being rolled out in phases, and more exciting enhancements are coming this year. In the meanwhile, you can already enable many of them in Wrike Labs (e.g. new Table View, new Board View, new sidebar and toolbar), and in the app (Work Item View). Some of the updates have been released to everyone already (new look & feel, custom item types), and some of them are coming in the coming weeks and months.
Please note that depending on account type, or registration date, you may already have some of the features (e.g. new Table View) in your account as default. If you’re not sure which functionality you have, please reach out to your Wrike representatives or to our Support team.
Where do I find Wrike Labs?
On which plans is Wrke Lightspeed available?
Many of the enhanced views are available on all types of accounts (e.g. new Table View, new Board View). Others are only available on certain types of accounts (e.g. custom item types).
Is Wrike Lightspeed different from our current Wrike workspace?
Wrike Lightspeed is your Wrike workspace plus improved views and new capabilities, as well as design enhancements. It’s a combination of what you love about Wrike, some improved functionality, as well as brand new additions like calendar view, custom item types, custom user types, external requester communication, and many more.
Is Wrike Lightspeed at an additional price?
There’s no additional price, and the updates are available depending on the account type (e.g. custom item types are available to accounts on Business plans and up).
Is Wrike Lightspeed going to be released to everyone? If so, when?
That’s the plan! Our team aims to release all planned enhancements to all Wrike customers in 2023.
Will new views have the same functionality as current ones?
Wrike Lightspeed will have capability parity for the majority of user scenarios plus new features and views that will cover even more use cases you may have.
When are new Dashboards going to be released?
The plan is to release new Dashboards this year. We will continue to update you on any changes and enhancements.
Will the switching to Wrike Lightspeed be mandatory over time?
As we mentioned above, the plan is to release Wrike Lightspeed to all Wrike customers this year. This will not happen before we reach capability parity for the majority of user scenarios.
Is the Dark Mode going to be included in the Wrike Lightspeed release?
Yes! Our team is currently working on this solution, and we will let you know once it’s available!
