Tips for collaborating

Tips for collaborating

We all want better collaboration. Here's how ClickUp does it:

  • Add watchers to your tasks Watchers are people that are "watching" (or "following") a task. These people receive notifications when tasks they watch are updated.
  • Comment on tasks - With ClickUp, you can include attachments, task links, people mentions, and even rich text formatting all within a single column!
    • Did your comment contain an action item? Assign it !
    • Create a Team to assign or mention multiple people at the same time
  • Mentioning (linking) tasks - Regular links  and task URLs referenced in a task's description or comments are automatically recognized and stored in one convenient location on each task. Task URLs are unfurled and automatically create a connection between the task you're viewing and the mentioned task. 
  • Change task statuses - When one phase of a task has started or finished, change the status to represent the tasks's progression. Leave a comment to make it clear what you accomplished and if there is anything else someone should know about the final work or outcome.
  • If you still use email, check out our email task creation feature, our Chrome Extension (Gmail Integration) , and our Outlook add-in .
