I have been using Wrike since Oct 2014, and I could not be happier. It is a wonderful tool that allows you to have the freedom of building your own process, your own way; but it still has structure and is usable.Read the full review

We have kept Wrike for it's Gantt Charts features which are essential for our work. It's a good way of seeing our work flow.
We've noticed the team doesn't particularly like using Wrike because of it's kind of corporate look and feel. Some find it hard to navigate. We use Slack, Gmail, Calendar, etc and Wrike was not the easiest thing to sell to the team as a whole.

We left the "big name" Project software for Wrike years ago and have not looked back. From the easy customization to the easy to use interface. Wrike is it, in project management tools. The development team at Wrike is second to none! The take out of the box ideas and run with it. As a customer you get to vote on new ideas for the software. Wrike is the best!
We're a small team of about 15 employees and were originally hesitant to bring on a project management software since email seemed to be working alright for our needs but after realizing things were getting lost in the shuffle, we decided to try Wrike out. I'm so glad we did. We've been using them for about three years and it's really helped us move forward in project planning and scoping. Right off the bat, Wrike held a training for our company. They did an in-depth training for those of us who were looking to learn the application inside/out and an overall training for the rest of the team. Sure, lots of people do training but then they followed up about 30 days later to uncover what we felt was lacking. From there they did a second training where they helped us customize our work space. I thought that was a really nice touch. Currently we use Wrike to manage internal and external team hours, create project scoping timelines, uncover potential roadblocks and to get everyone on the same page about changes/updates/etc. It's a great tool. One of my favorite features is that you can print individualized reports for a person or print out the total hours by project. I'd love for Wrike to add more color and font customization options just because it's hard to see changes sometimes in the comment boxes. I'd also like to see more customization options for the interface for individual users. Overall, I'd recommend Wrike if you're looking to grow your business efficiency.
Multiple chart options for displaying timelines Easy comment buttons (can just reply to an email and everything is captured) Ability to create custom folders and other set up features Can grab a visual of a project in under 30 seconds Customized reporting options
If you don't do the training up front or keep up with updates you can easily get lost. Wrike has some awesome features but you have to stay on your toes to take advantage of them.

We paid for a year of this software, with all the best expectations. However, as we began to use it, we found that for our size organization, it was more time and trouble to keep it updated than it was not to use it. Their no-refund policy is incredibly customer-unfriendly, and, as a small education nonprofit, has really deprived us of a sum that is significant to us, for a SAAS we are not able to use. It's not like a product that we used up so we can't return it. Wrike would incur no additional loss for bandwidth we didn't use by refunding us our money. Frankly I am shocked, and would tell others not to take the risk of purchasing it. As certain as you may be that it meets your needs, the risk of finding out you don't like it as you go along, or circumstances change, can cost you a substantial sum.
We thought it was a powerful tool -- but none of that power is accessible if it takes too much time and energy to use it. (for a small staff)
Time consuming to update projects.

Custom Statutes, Custom Fields, Reports, Dashboards/Boards - What would you add to Wrike features? Oh, there are many of them.

We create and delegate tasks, track approaching deadlines, and gain a visual of our plans on a gantt chart. We can also share reports between the team.
We've tried a lot of different project management solutions and nothing I've found can compare to Wrike.
This is a lifesaver if you're working with a large number of people. I have used a number of project management platforms, and this one has been the easiest to scale and control permissions for.
It has fully automated our projects and setting up project templates is a breeze. Our main problem with other software was the inability to have milestones change based on dates that affected the timeline Wrike solves that problem. Wrike allows you to invite key players outside of your network as collaborators this function keeps everyone on task and update on the project.
Wrike has been an amazing tool that has made the process integration for our company that much smoother. And with individuals that work off site it helps keeps us connected and on task with our project lists.
Business decisions happen at the speed of light, and most managers don’t have time to wait around for their project management software to keep up. Wrike is a real-time collaboration and project management solution that allows organizations to work more efficiently and transparently.
By connecting popular business apps and providing tools like workload management, document collaboration, time tracking, dynamic Gantt charts, and customizable reports, Wrike keeps professional teams on the same page with fast-moving projects. Users can prioritize assignments, offer personalized feedback, and monitor progress updates that appear in real-time activity streams.
Wrike can be tailored to anyone’s needs, from independents freelancers to multi-national corporations. The company has worked with users in many different departments and industries, but focuses primarily on co-located and distributed teams.
Wrike is a management and collaboration solution that delivers real-time project insights to its users. Built with the goal of making day-to-day work easier and more transparent for professional teams, Wrike serves as a project hub where users are able to discuss tasks and ideas, manage schedules, and store files securely in the cloud.
Teams that use Wrike are able to organize all of their projects and related tasks in single, unified workspaces. Uploaded files are accessible to all team members at any time. Managers are encouraged to assign tasks to specific employees, adjust for scheduling changes using interactive Gantt charts, and host collaborative group discussions in real-time. This real-time element is an important part of Wrike. The solution aims to give its users up-to-the-minute updates based on the status of their projects. Live updates are distributed to users through group activity streams, while built-in analytics tools provide an instant visual of the progress of any project.
Wrike provides its users with streaming activity feeds that look and function similarly to Facebook newsfeeds. Activity feeds are populated by the tasks that have been assigned to employees or created by them. Users can filter their feeds to remove extraneous tasks that involve unrelated departments, or they can comment on specific items within their feeds to share their points of view.
To share your thoughts and ideas with colleagues, simply type those thoughts into the box atop your activity feed. Your comments will appear in the activity feed for every user at your organization. To make your comments even more impactful, you can attach files, as well.
Dynamic Gantt charts help users visualize plans and projects in real-time. Wrike automatically converts project schedules into interactive Gantt charts. As new milestones are added and tasks are rescheduled, users can adjust dependencies to ensure their timelines stay on track. Team notifications are automatically sent out whenever adjustments to a Gantt chart are made.
To review a timeline as a dynamic Gantt chart, click on the folder panel and the “Timeline” icon at the top of the page. When you look at your Gantt chart, you’ll notice that completed tasks show up in green, overdue tasks show up in red, and active tasks show up in blue. You can convert any task into a milestone on your Gantt chart by clicking the “Convert into milestone” link. This removes the start date and duration from the task.
Distributing files via email is a process that is wrought with complications and prone to error. Instead of relying on email, Wrike encourages users to upload files into the cloud. Files are connected to individual tasks, and they can be edited online without having to be downloaded first. This ensures that the most recent version of any file is always available for the group to see.
To attach a file to a task or folder, click the paperclip icon and tell Wrike where the file is coming from. Wrike lets you upload files from your computer, along with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box. Once your file has been uploaded, you can work on it with colleagues using Wrike’s version control tools.
Without knowing how many hours a group has spent working on a particular task, it’s virtually impossible for managers to accurately bill their clients. Wrike provides users with time tracking tools that can be used to track the minutes and hours spent working on individual tasks. Users can also create reports based on the time spent working on groups of tasks.
To create a time report, click on a task and then start the timer. When you’ve completed the task or decided to take a break, pause the timer. Wrike allows you to add detailed explanations of what you were working on. These entries are then added to your time logs.
Using Wrike’s workload management feature, managers can create interactive charts to monitor their teams’ workloads and adjust schedules or allocations when necessary. Workload management tools help users handle resources that are in flux, and ultimately lead groups to work together more seamlessly.
To see your team’s workload, click on the project folder and the person icon at the top of the page. The interactive chart you see is your workload management schedule. The names of each team member will appear next to that person’s upcoming tasks. You can focus on specific times or days by adjusting the zoom level.
Wrike can be integrated with any app through its API. The platform has several main integration categories in place, including Gmail, Apple Mail, Outlook, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Excel, and the Google apps marketplace. Besides, integration with GitHub is coming soon.
In particular, Wrike’s Outlook and Apple Mail add-ins can be especially beneficial for users. Teams that use Outlook or Apple Mail for email can automatically turn their emails into tasks. Those tasks can then be edited via an interactive tab that appears within the email client.
Wrike offers a SaaS pricing model, with a free version for teams of up to five users. For larger organizations, the company’s Professional plan starts at $49 per month for teams of up to fifteen users. Enterprise solutions are also available for organizations with thousands of users, with custom pricing based on individual needs.
