Inbox helps you keep track of important updates in Wrike. You receive Inbox notifications when

  • You are assigned to a Task or added as a Project owner.
  • You are @mentioned on a Task, Folder, or Project.
  • A Task, Folder, Project, Calendar, Report, or Dashboard is shared with you.
  • Tasks which are assigned to you are deleted, restored, or their importance is changed.
  • A Project where you're the Project owner is deleted or restored.
  • A task assigned to you is in a dependency chain and its immediate predecessors are completed*. A notification is only sent if: 1) the dependency between tasks is finish-to-start and 2) the next task has “active” or “deferred” status. 3) You are not @mentioned on the task within an hour of when the predecessors are completed.
  • All subtasks are completed, cancelled, or deferred, but the parent task is still active and you are assigned to it.*
  • You're assigned to a Review.
  • You're the Review creator and the last reviewer makes their decision (Approved or Changes Required).

*Optional notification which can be disabled. Wrike sends these type of notifications once an hour, but there is a separate notification for each task.

  • Notifications disappear from Inbox after four weeks.
  • Notifications are automatically marked as read (even if you do not open the notification from Inbox)  when: 1) You open the related Task, Folder, or Project or 2) You open the email notification about the change.

  • Notifications related to the same Task, or made on the same Folder/Project info panel are shown on the same card.

Navigate Inbox

Inbox is divided into four sections: Incoming, Sent, and Archive.

  • Incoming: shows unread notifications and notifications which have not yet been archived. Cards are sorted by date and remain in this section until you move them to the Archive section*. Cards with notifications from today appear at the top of the list and you can scroll down to see notifications from previous days.
  • Filter tasks: click the filters icon and select "all updates" or "only unread" depending on what you want to see. 
  • Sent: Shows cards with comments (including @mentions) which you left on Tasks, Folders, and Projects.
  • Archive: shows cards which have been archived.
  • If a card has unread notifications: a blue dot appears in the card’s upper right-hand corner.
  • If an active task is overdue or due today, you'll see its due date on the notification card. 

A number, indicating how many unread @mentions or task assignment notifications you have, appears on the right-hand side of the Inbox tab.

Please note, notifications remain in Inbox for four weeks, after four weeks pass the notification is not visible in either the Incoming or Archive sections.
