Click Up the Slack

Click Up the Slack

If you love Slack, you’ll love the ClickUp app on Slack. You can do three freaking awesome things:

1. Create new tasks!

Save time creating tasks directly inside of Slack – schedule tasks without switching apps!

Simply type “/clickup new” then press “enter” in any comment and Slack will generate the new task creator.

2. Improved Unfurl tasks in Slack!

Get more context around a task the moment you post a link in Slack

Unfurling ClickUp tasks in Slack instantly sheds light on the status of any given project so that you can communicate fully with your team!

Instantly get more context around task management the second you post a ClickUp link in Slack by integrating the two tools and posting the link to a ClickUp task, in Slack!

This is great for real time collaboration and allows quick access to file sharing!

Create to-do lists for your team within existing Slack channels.

  • Unfurled subtasks are now linked back directly back to parent tasks.

3. More Specific Slack Notifications

These are going to rock your productive world!

Notifications can now be turned on for specific ClickUp Lists or Projects and designated to channels within Slack – meaning as a project manager, you’ll never miss important activity with your team!

These task driven notifications will be available on both desktop and mobile apps. To learn more about Slack notifications please see this doc!
