At Wrike, you can easily attach a file to a task or a Folder directly from several well-known cloud storages: Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and Microsoft OneDrive. With this powerful integration in the cloud space, you don’t have to worry about routine backups, toggling files between different devices, data syncing, and being able to access important documents from virtually anywhere. When all your files are instantly accessible by your team in one place, file collaboration becomes fast and easy.

To attach a file from an integrated cloud storage service:
  1. Click "Attach files" (paper clip icon). 1
  2. Select the cloud app you want to attach a file from2
  3. Log in to your cloud storage app account and select the files to attach. If it's your first time accessing the cloud storage service from Wrike, you’ll also need to grant Wrike access.

When you attach a file, a link to it appears in the task's attachment section. Attachments from cloud storage services remain stored in the cloud storage account and don't use Wrike storage space. Everyone who shares the task automatically has access to the online file.*
*Admins on Enterprise accounts may change Google Drive sharing settings so the files are not automatically shared. Learn more about Advanced Security Settings.


When working with Google Drive, you can also create a new document, spreadsheet or presentation in Google Docs directly from the “Attach files from Google Drive” dialog 3. Choose what kind of file you want to create and enter the name for it. The newly created document will open, and you can start working on it. When you save the file, it will be stored on Google Drive, with the link to the file available in the task.
