Overcomes Primary Challenge for Managing Projects in Digital
Workplace with Enhanced Views, Calendars, and Dashboards

Wrike, the collaborative work management platform for high-performance
teams, is helping project managers gain greater visibility and control
over collaborative work in the Digital Workplace, overcoming a key
challenge for completing work at scale. The newly enhanced viewing
options, which include a Gantt chart, list view, board view, and a new
file view, as well as new calendars and dashboard features, also deliver
increased transparency and improved accountability for responsible team
members. The flexibility in how information is viewed, combined with
real-time visibility into work across projects and tasks at all levels,
provides enterprises with the data needed to track activity to strategic
goals.

"We're very excited to be gaining even more visibility into work and
workflows within Wrike," says Hootsuite Vice President of Marketing
Jeremy Woods. "The Calendar feature in particular will allow us to align
all of our tactics, not only throughout the regions, but also within HQ,
from marketing pushes to product releases, feature releases, and partner
integrations. Allowing us to align everything makes our messaging a lot
clearer for our customers."

According to a report on digital workplace technologies by Gartner, "by
2022, 70 percent of organizations leveraging collaborative work
management systems will report that their teams are significantly better
performing." These features represent Wrike's focus on customers' needs
and helping them transform how teams collaborate in the Digital
Workplace, as well as the company's commitment to continuous innovation
and pushing to further define collaborative work management. All of
these features are available in the browser version and the Android
mobile app, as well as the award-winning desktop
application
of the Wrike Platform, allowing users to benefit from
these advanced capabilities regardless of how and where they work.

"Project management is no longer reserved for certified Project Managers
in the Digital Workplace," said Wrike CEO Andrew Filev. "Work today is
often more fluid, and different users sometimes require different views
into the same data. These new features allow teams to be nimble and
better visualize hidden work, while simultaneously delivering leadership
with the high-level visibility across all projects and portfolios needed
to visibly track work to strategic outcomes. "

The features include:

  • New and Enhanced Views - Gives users the ability to see and
    interact with projects and tasks the way they want:
    • Board View - Ability to sort tasks by ‘Date,' ‘Importance'
      or ‘Title,' allows users to understand top priorities and ensure
      movement is within the right workflow;
    • File View - Not all work is centered around tasks and
      timelines. The new File View makes it easy to quickly find,
      access, edit, and share digital files;
    • Gantt Chart - Critical path analysis to reduce project
      uncertainty and missed deadlines; interactive snapshots available
      to share with internal and external stakeholders; drag and drop
      functionality to rearrange the priorities, dates, and hierarchical
      relationship;
    • List View - More viewable tasks, dates and project
      statuses; improved drag and drop functionality; and better mass
      editing to update multiple tasks and projects at once.
  • Wrike Calendars - Top-level view of work helps users plan and
    strategize more easily. Connections to underlying projects and tasks
    means calendars always reflect the most up-to-date plans and
    schedules. Users can:
    • Manually plan and track critical work;
    • Automatically track specific work for projects, teams, or folders;
    • Color code work by status, channel, audience, and more;
    • Layer calendars to get a bird's-eye view of deliverables across
      the organization;
    • Share Calendars with real-time information internally and
      externally.
  • Redesigned Dashboards - Simplified sharing and navigation, as
    well as enhanced overall look and feel:
    • Easy customized sorting enables users to manually adjust based on
      listing preferences;
    • Create Dashboard widgets directly from Dashboard view;
    • Ability to create and view multiple dashboards simultaneously.
