For every project without exception, I put a great deal of attention towards streamlining the workload. This includes project management and team communication as well. Wrike’s Google Chrome extension had a massive impact in the way I communicate with my collaborators. For those of you unfamiliar with it, let me try to explain it in the simplest possible way: It can bridge your Wrike project management center with any in-browser tool you use. You can create a task directly from the resource page and the hyperlink is copied to set task alongside other important information related to it. This is the fastest way to bookmark and discuss resource pages with your team. Let me outline a few advantages of using Wrike’s Chrome extension.

Sharing the knowledge

Like many of you, I am constantly learning new things and formulating new ideas. Whenever I stumble upon something interesting or something worth sharing, I simply start a discussion directly from that page. Wrike’s extension also allows me to individually pick the people to discuss a certain page with. This makes it great for pointing out specific pages to specific people. Nesting these bookmarks under a label also provides an excellent way of backtracking resource pages.

Item tracking

Keeping track of purchasing and items on watch lists has always been a multi-tool task. Now, I simply organize and direct items from the browser to purchasing list. There is even a snapshot option that allows me to keep track of items and its details which makes controlling the watch lists a lot easier. Adding information to the snapshots and highlighting the part of an image can also be very useful and simplify the item tracking of any sort.

Manage my management

Wrike is a project management tool, but I also use the extension to manage custom timelines and reports within Wrike itself. A unique URL is assigned to every item within Wrike, and since that address is copied when I create new items from the extension, I can use it to point out time delays and progress reports to specific people. This makes inner team communication a lot easier and significantly speeds up problem-solving and team collaboration. You can basically do management within your management and simplify the transfer of information.

Wrike’s Google Chrome extension is free for all existing users.  It is very simple and straightforward to use, even for those unfamiliar with any type of experience using similar extensions. It is one of my favorite tools and certainly one that I use quite often. In addition to business, I use it to organize a lot of personal resource pages and my “to read” lists.
