Wrike Announces Integration with Microsoft Teams
a work management software for high-performance teams, today announced
with Microsoft Teams, the chat-based workspace in Office 365. The
integration allows Wrike to offer powerful collaborative work management
tools to Office 365's 85 million monthly active users.
Teams users will be able to easily create tasks and manage workflows
directly from the chat-based interface, making conversations in Teams
more productive and actionable.�They will also be able to access a

share content within the context of work. With Teams and Wrike, Office
