Wrike Android app is available for all types of users on all subscription types. The features in the app are available in accordance with your subscription type.


Wrike’s Android app allows you to stay on top of your projects and connect with your team on the go. The application is available as a free download and supported by Android smartphones and tablets running version 5 or later.

Please note that Wrike does not support mobile browsers; hence our [Android/iOS] App is the best option for using Wrike on mobile. 

Navigate the App

By default, in the bottom menu of the app you can switch between the following sections:

  • Inbox allows you to keep up with updates. You can find all incoming, sent, and archived notifications there as well as the Activity tab.
  • Starred contains your starred folders, projects, and tasks.
  • My to-do shows the tasks you are assigned to.
  • Browse allows you to navigate between your spaces, search for items, and access all other projects and folders in the account. To find a task, folder, or project, type its name into the search option at the top of the screen.

Customize the Bottom Menu

  1. Tap on “More” in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
  2. Tap on the arrow icon above “More.”
  3. The “Navigation settings” is open. From here you can:
    • Drag and drop items to delete them from your bottom menu.
    • Drag and drop items to add them to the bottom menu.
    • Hide titles in the bottom bar by tapping on the slider.

Please note: “More” can’t be removed from the bottom menu.

Navigate Spaces

  • Tap on “Browse” in the bottom menu to see the spaces you’ve joined earlier.
  • Scroll down to find “Explore Spaces” and tap on it to see the list of spaces in your account.

*Users who have an account with the Wrike for Professional Services package and Wrike Resource add-on can track time on the go in the Android app's Timesheets. Wrike connects your Timesheets with Google Calendar to easily add time spent on meetings and other scheduled tasks. The app automatically offers to integrate your Google Calendar when you open Timesheets. Additionally, in Timesheets you can see billable and non-billable time totals, a weekly summary of tracked time, and highlights for tasks that require your attention.


Activity is a special mobile version of the Stream tab that contains additional features, allowing you to track detailed changes and make timely adjustments on-the-go.

With Activity, you can stay on top of all your running assignments to make sure you don’t miss any updates in active tasks. Activity shows you:

  • Dates and status changes (including the info about the previous status)
  • New comments including those that don’t @mention you directly
  • Approval updates
  • Changes in attachments
  • Other updates in tasks you follow. If a task is irrelevant to you, swipe it to the left and Wrike will stop showing it in Activity.

By default, Activity will send you a daily push notification with all your latest updates consolidated in one place. You can disable the push notifications in Settings > Activity notifications.

In the daily Activity digest you can:

  • Get an overview of all your running tasks and decide whether or not you need to act on some updates
  • Quickly review all updates including the ones that don’t show up directly in your Inbox
  • Reply to new messages in your tasks

Once you open Activity, all updates are marked as read.

There are a few ways to access Activity:

  • Click the daily push notification to go directly to Activity.
  • Click More in the bottom menu and find Activity on the list.
  • In your Inbox, click the Go to activity button on the banner at the top. You can hide this banner by swiping right or left. Alternatively, go to Activity or Settings to hide it forever.

Try Activity for a week and leave feedback to help us adjust the experience for your needs. To do this in the app click More > Feedback.

  2. Select “Dashboards.”
  3. The name of the dashboard is listed at the top of the view, and the name of the widget is displayed in blue underneath the dashboard’s name.

Working Offline

View Information

When working offline you can access folders, projects, and reports of which data has been stored on your phone. This means that you can access folders, projects, and reports which you've opened during your current session (since you last logged in)*. You'll also be able to open tasks (but not task description fields) that live in those folders and projects, even if you didn’t open a particular task.

Create and Edit

Once offline you'll be able to work with cached data and make changes as you normally would. When you connect to the internet again, your changes are synced.

While offline you can:

  • Create tasks, folders, and projects.
  • Edit existing tasks (add dates and assignees) in folders and projects you opened while online.
  • Edit descriptions of tasks you opened while online.
  • Submit requests.
  • Reorder tasks in folders and projects that you’ve opened while online to change their priority (sort tasks by priority to do it). Your changes are synced when you connect to the internet again.

All changes are synced when you connect to the internet.

Review changes you made while offline

When you're working offline, once you make at least one change in a task, folder, or project, you'll see this message at the top of the view: "Task/folder/project has X change(s) waiting for sync." This message will appear in the Task view and project or folder info panels of each item where you make changes while offline.

To review all changes that you made:

  1. Leave the Task view or the project/folder info panel.
  2. Wait until you see the pop-up "X changes waiting for sync" above the bottom navigation panel.
  3. Tap the pop-up.

The "Pending changes" view will open. It contains the list of tasks, folders, and projects that you made changes to while working offline. You can tap an item in the list to view your changes in its Stream. You can also tap the "Remove" button on a task, folder, or project in the list to cancel all changes you made before they're synced.

Note! When you only make changes in the description field of a task, folder, or project, you won't see the message at the top of the Task view or the project/folder info panel, and you won't be able to open the "Pending changes" view. But the changes that you make will still be synced when your internet connection is restored.

Android Widgets

You can add any, or all, of our app’s Android widgets to the start screen of your smartphone:

  • The Inbox widget shows the most recent Inbox notifications.
  • The Task List widget that works like a Dashboard widget helps you focus on a specific list of tasks.

Project Progress

Project progress is available on Business accounts and up.

Project progress allows you to see how well your projects are doing and which of them require attention. Wrike automatically calculates your project progress based on selected metrics and updates it in real time.

This page describes how to enable and access project progress in the Android app. To read more about the progress metrics and how they’re calculated, visit the Project Progress overview page.

Note: In the Android app, progress is displayed only for projects that have a start and finish date and have enough tasks to calculate progress.

Where can you see progress?

In the Android app, project progress is enabled for all projects in the account by default. You can see it in two places:

  • The “Browse” view under the project’s name
  • The “Starred” section

Access Project’s Progress Panel

  1. Open a project. 1
  2. Tap on the progress bar. 2


Enable or Disable Project Progress

In the Android app, all users who have access to the project can enable or disable project progress.

To enable, disable, or change the calculation of a project’s progress in the Android app, you need to enable or disable all or some of the progress metrics. To do that: 

  1. Open the project’s progress panel.
  2. Tap the slider buttons next to “Number of completed tasks” and “Duration of completed tasks.”

When the slider button is grey, that means that this metric is disabled for this project. The blue slider indicates that the metric is enabled.

Project Health Color-Coding

To enable color-coding in the Android app:

  1. Open the project’s progress panel.
  2. Tap the slider button next to “Color coding.”

In the app, project health has the following colors:

  • Green: Project isn’t overdue and has zero risks.
  • Yellow: Project isn’t overdue and has at least one risk but not all are risks.
  • Red: Project is overdue or contains all risks.
  • Grey: Project cancelled, completed, or on hold or its dates are incorrect (e.g., its finish date is earlier than its start date).
