Intro to mobile notifications

Keep track of your ClickUp notifications on the mobile app.

What you'll need

  • Notifications are available on all ClickUp plans.

Notifications are automatically grouped by date. Tap any notification to open it in full screen and see additional details.

Notification details

To the right of each item in your Inbox, you'll see the total number of individual notifications related to that item.

If you have been mentioned, you'll see an @ icon to the right of the notification.

If you have been assigned a comment, you'll see an assigned comment icon to the right of the notification.

For task notifications, pie chart icons to the left indicate task progress.

Mark notifications as unread

You can mark notifications as unread from the Inbox:

  1. Swipe right on a notification.
  2. Tap the mail icon to the left of the task name.

Alternatively, you can mark a notification as unread after opening it:

  1. Tap a notification to open it.
  2. In the upper-right corner, tap the mail icon.

Stop receiving notifications

To stop receiving notifications for an item:

  1. From the Inbox, tap a notification to open it.
  2. In the upper-right corner, tap the bell icon to stop receiving notifications for the item.

Snooze notifications

Snoozing allows you to temporarily hide notifications from your Inbox until a specific date or time, or if there's an update.

To snooze a notification:

  1. From the Inbox, tap a notification to open it.
  2. In the upper-right corner, tap the snooze icon.
  3. Choose a date and time.

Clear notifications

To clear a notification, swipe all the way left on it.

Alternatively, tap the notification to open it and select Clear in the lower-right corner.

Clear all notifications

In mobile 2.0, you can clear all notifications at once. 

To clear all notifications:

  1. Open notifications.
  2. In the upper-right corner, tap the filter icon.
  3. At the bottom, tap Clear all notifications.

Pre-load notifications tasks in mobile 2.0

If you often open tasks from notifications, you can save time by enabling the pre-load option in your mobile settings.

Once enabled, tasks that you have in your notifications are downloaded in the background so that they load significantly faster. 

To enable pre-loading of notification-related tasks:

  1. In the left Sidebar on the mobile app, tap the settings icon in the upper-right corner.
  2. Under Notifications, toggle on Pre-load notifications tasks.

Because task information is being downloaded, enabling this setting takes up more storage on your device (1-2 MB per uncleared notification), uses more network data, and takes up more battery life.
