Raise your hand if 2022 felt like its own decade. 🙋🏼♀️
Between the Superbowl half-time show, “the slap heard around the world,” and Don’t Worry Darling, it was an excellent year for meme content. So no matter how high inflation soared, we always had something to laugh about—besides our bank accounts. 🥲
All this to say, a lot went down this year—enough to keep the conversation fresh at the kids’ table for years to come! But whether you categorized it by the rise and fall of Wordle or Pete Davidson’s dating history, 2022 was one for the history books.
At ClickUp HQ, 2022 will be remembered as the year we turned five years old and made some serious moves in pursuit of our founding mission. It was a year of maturity, growth, and hyper-focus—guided by our core values and never losing sight of the big picture: saving people time so they can focus on the things that matter most. 💜
From expanding our global presence to forming new partnerships, feature releases, and industry recognition, 2022 was good for us. Now, we’re entering 2023 feeling grateful for all we’ve accomplished in the last 12 months and ready to play an even greater role in our users’ productivity.
Our Year in Numbers—AKA, ClickUp Wrapped
In the whirlwind year that was 2022, we stayed committed to growing 1% every day, both as a team and as a product. And when you add all of those percentages together, the outcome is pretty incredible.
We didn’t just release ClickUp Whiteboards and Docs 3.0, we never stopped improving them. And based on the 27,935,311 new ClickUp Docs and 1,117,125 Whiteboards created in the last 12 months—we can tell you love them as much as we do.
What sets these features apart from your average document editor and digital whiteboard software is the ability to convert text, shapes, notes, and more into action items. Maybe that’s how our users created over 654 million ClickUp tasks this year. 🤓
All that efficiency leads to more time spent away from the desk and back where it belongs—with the ones you love, finishing your passion projects, or playing pickleball!
As cool as it is to see these numbers on paper, our favorite part is knowing what our users were able to accomplish because of them. At ClickUp, we live for the thrill of streamlining new processes and powering through our to-do lists, but finding the balance between work and our personal lives makes it all worthwhile!
The real question is: Who are these people crushing their tasks and boosting productivity off the charts?
Nothing inspires us as much as our incredible customers. The wide range of use cases, businesses, and industries ClickUp serves is a testament to our product’s power and potential. Here’s how our customers used ClickUp to take the year by storm:
New Year and a Ton of New Features
Since day one, we’ve promised new features each week and we really delivered on that promise.
We put a ton of TLC into our Template Library, creating hundreds of new and completely free resources for teams of any size and use case. We also entirely revamped ClickUp University to create a vast course catalog, live training, certifications, and tips to help all of our users master their Platform in record time. 🏼🏾
Motivated by our users, we poured everything we had into our community of users to provide the best service all around. This started from within the platform, adding Portuguese, Spanish, and German localization features to reduce language barriers and connect teams from all over the world using ClickUp.
We then turned to our peers, seeking ways to improve our customer’s experience using ClickUp alongside other tools and devices. This translated into a heap of new partnerships, integrations, and updates including:
- Massive updates to our scalable, resilient, and innovative ClickUp infrastructure
- Hiring seasoned and competitive talent to round out ClickUp’s leadership team
- Furthering our commitment to protecting your data by achieving critical ISO certifications
- The official opening of our second US-based ClickUp office in snowy Salt Lake City
- Multiple new senior hires across our EMEA team to keep up with soaring European demand
- ClickUp task creation and reminders sent to your Apple Watch
- A one-of-a-kind partnership with Hubspot
- A newly upgraded Jira importer
- Acquiring Slapdash to enhance and drive our powerful new search function
Just to name a few. 😍🏆
Proud Mom™ Moments From 2022
You know you’re doing something right when other people start to notice, and 2022 was a major year for us regarding awards and recognition.
One of our greatest achievements of the year, we were proud to earn our place on the Forbes Cloud 100 list, the definitive ranking of the top private cloud companies in the world for 2022.
ClickUp also ranked highly among LinkedIn’s Top StartUps for the second year in a row, found a home among the best of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, was recognized on Quartz’s list of Best Places to Work for Remote Teams, and more.
All while climbing to the number one spot on G2 for Strategy and Innovation Roadmapping (Software teams), Marketing Calendar (marketing), and Project and Portfolio Management (PMO). These recognitions mean the world to us because they’re entirely based on your ratings!
We stayed dedicated to the seven core values that guide our work at ClickUp every day—especially, paying it forward with random acts of kindness. With this in mind, ClickUp has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations, food, and time to those in need of a helping hand.
Kicking Off 2023 Productive AF
Beyond the Platform, our content is another way we give back to our readers and users—because without you, none of this would be possible!
Plus, we don’t gatekeep! 😉
There is a wealth of knowledge to tap into with our ever-growing team of dedicated ClickUppers, and our blog and newsletter are two of our favorite ways to share it with you all. P.S., have you subscribed to WriteClick yet?!
The new year is the time to rethink your short and long-term goals, create personal action plans, and tap into your productivity. It’s also the perfect time to let go of the things that once held you back in order to push forward—and ClickUp has every resource needed to guide you on that front.
Companies are actively seeking new technology to bring teams together, regardless of whether they work in person, from home, or somewhere in the middle. This puts ClickUp in a unique spot because we’re not just in the business of project management, work management, or collaboration—we’re entirely centered around productivity.
“Work” looks completely different now than it did two years ago, and the only thing we can reliably predict going forward is the ability to pivot at any time.
We’ve taken this to heart and can’t wait to share what ClickUp has in store for 2023, starting with our third annual productivity conference, LevelUp, happening in February. 🙌🏼
A Heartfelt Thank You
Before we collectively toast our Negroni Sbagliatos in celebration of another productive year at ClickUp, we want to acknowledge that 2022 was an incredible challenge for so many people, on every level.
As fun as it is to look back on all of the good things that happened as a whole, 2022 was not without its trials and tribulations, many of which continue to plague the world even as we enter 2023.
In the spirit of the new year, new beginnings, and new opportunities, these hurdles have only reinforced the fact that we are a community. And a strong one, at that!
We support each other, push each other, and give back to each other. As an industry, we’ve all felt the wave of change, and it may not be over yet, but we will ride the tide together! 🌊
Change is the only constant, and at ClickUp, we choose to face it head-on and embrace it each and every day.
We are entering the new year feeling excited about the future of our product, energized by its momentum, and committed to delivering the best service to our community of productivity junkies.
Love you, nerds. 💜
