Why Wrike and Teams?

Wrike is a powerful project management tool that helps teams stay organized, track progress, and collaborate effectively. On the other hand, Microsoft Teams is a popular collaboration platform that allows teams to chat, meet, and collaborate from anywhere.

By integrating Wrike with Teams, you can bring the power of project management and collaboration together in one place. This integration streamlines communication, eliminates the need for switching between multiple tools, and enhances productivity.

The first step is to install the Wrike app for Microsoft Teams. Open the Teams application and navigate to the Apps section. Search for “Wrike” and click on “Add” to install the app.

Once the installation is complete, you will see the Wrike app added to your Teams sidebar. Click on it to get started.

Step 2: Connect your Wrike account

Before you can start using Wrike within Teams, you need to connect your Wrike account. Click on the Wrike app in Teams, and you will be prompted to sign in to your Wrike account.

After signing in, you will need to grant permissions for Teams to access your Wrike account. This is necessary for the integration to work seamlessly.

Step 3: Configure Wrike notifications

Once your account is connected, you can customize the notifications you receive from Wrike in Teams. This allows you to stay updated on project activities and important tasks without leaving Teams.

You can choose to receive notifications for task assignments, due dates, comments, and more. Select the notification settings that suit your preferences and team’s needs.

Step 4: Collaborate on Wrike tasks and projects within Teams

Now that everything is set up, you can start collaborating on Wrike tasks and projects directly within Teams. You can create new tasks, assign them to team members, add due dates, and track progress – all without leaving Teams.

When you create a new task in Teams using the Wrike app, it will automatically sync with your Wrike account. Any updates made in Wrike will also be reflected in Teams, ensuring that everyone is on the same page.

Additionally, you can use the Wrike command in Teams to quickly search for tasks, view task details, and update task statuses. This makes it easy to stay organized and productive without switching back and forth between tools.
