Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very configurable
Many configuration options.
Pro Can create events on Calendar
Tasks can create events on your calendar if you set a due date and time. It also syncs the state (completed).
Pro Syncs to Google Tasks
Pro Easy to add complex tasks
The setup page of a task takes only a single page, which makes it fast and easy add one. But there are still a lot of options available, like:
- date and time
- priority (four different colors)
- reminder (by time or location, different ringing schemes)
- hide until
- add to calendar
Pro Full featured widgets
Widgets can be truly customized. You can set a filter by automatic list (today, recent, uncategorized) or tag or list. There is a light, a black and a dark theme, plus a color setting. The opacity can be set, as well as the font size. Then you can decide to show the header, the settings, the due date, or the checkboxes.
Pro Import from Astrid
Tasks allows you to import your data from Astrid.
Pro Easily share tasks and projects with others online
Wrike helps you organize all the tasks and jobs you have to do and tasks can easily be shared between team members.
Pro You can manage your tasks through email
You can create tasks via email or update task by email as each individual task can be directly targeted (each task is associated to a specific email address)
Pro Google Docs, Dropbox, Box integrations
Pro iPhone and Android apps
Pro Interactive timeline (Gantt chart)
Pro Instantiation of fully detail process
You can describe a process in detail (every individual step, linked together). You then attach your template to a form. When a user fills the form, the full template is instantiated with all the parameters required for that instance of the process. Roles are attributed. And using the declared subtask dependencies and the due date of the process, Wrike computes a retro planning and tells you when the process should be started.
Pro Lots of different views for your projects/tasks
List, table, Timeline (Gantt chart), Stream, Timelog.
Pro Plenty of ways to organise yours projects
Hierarchy of folders, project, tasks, subtask.
Pro Could easily replace Producteev
Producteev was in advance of its time for years. And yet, after it had been bought by Jive Software a couple of years ago, the development of the tool stopped. Wrike does everything that Producteev does, and much much more.
Con No syncing
Unlike most to-do apps, Tasks features no form of synchronization with other devices.
Con Freakishly expensive
Con Task management missing some key task relationships
Several wrike features (example the gant chart) are missing many task relationships found in other project management software. For example, no way to have a delayed lead in (ex. start 2 days after this other task begins/ends), and you are forced to add dates to tasks BEFORE you can set relationships meaning template features constantly require date changes.
Con Only good for developers
Good for developers, but if you want to use it for running projects besides IT, it's too complicated.
