How To Articles

Do you ever inquire about capturing the demanding user in a Wrike application? Look no further! This piece will lead you through the process of capturing the requesting user in a Wrike form, with some added personal touches and comments. Let’s get into the specifics!

First of all, let’s understand why capturing the requesting user in a Wrike form is important. Wrike forms are a powerful tool for collecting data and streamlining processes, but sometimes it’s crucial to know who the requester is. This information can help with follow-ups, approvals, and tracking progress. So let’s get started on how to capture it!

Step 1: Create a User Field in Your Wrike Form

To capture the requesting user, we need to add a user field to our Wrike form. This field will allow the user to select their name or enter their email address, depending on how you set it up. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open your Wrike workspace and go to the folder where your form is located.
  2. Click on the “Forms” tab in the top menu.
  3. Select the form you want to edit or create a new one.
  4. In the form builder, click on the “Add Field” button.
  5. Choose the “User” field type from the options.
  6. Customize the field label and any other settings as desired.
  7. Save your form.

That’s it! You have now added a user field to your Wrike form. Let’s move on to the next step.

Step 2: Enable Prefilling for the User Field

To make it easier for users to fill out the form, we can enable prefilling for the user field. This means that if a user is logged in to Wrike, their name or email address will be automatically filled in when they access the form. Here’s how to enable prefilling:

  1. In the form builder, select the user field you added in Step 1.
  2. On the right-hand side, under “Field Settings,” enable the “Prefill” option.
  3. Save your form.

With prefilling enabled, users will see their name or email address prepopulated in the user field when they access the form. This saves them time and ensures accurate data capture.

Step 3: Include Personal Touches and Commentary

Now that we have covered the technical steps, let’s add some personal touches and commentary to make the form more engaging and user-friendly. Here are a few ideas:

  • Add a friendly welcome message at the beginning of the form, addressing the user by name if possible.
  • Provide clear instructions and guidance throughout the form, using a conversational tone.
  • Add relevant comments or explanations next to certain fields, to help users understand what information is required.
  • Include a personalized thank you message at the end of the form, expressing your appreciation for their input.

By adding these personal touches, you can create a more user-centric form that encourages participation and provides a positive experience for the requesting user.


Capturing the requesting user in a Wrike form is a valuable feature that can enhance your workflow and improve communication. By following the steps outlined in this article and adding personal touches, you can create a form that not only captures the necessary data but also engages and delights the user.
