Intro to the Slack integration

ClickUp's Slack integration allows you to do more than just chat with your teammates. Maximize your team's productivity by taking action without ever leaving Slack.

What you'll need

  • The Slack integration is available on every ClickUp plan!

  • Only owners and admins can enable the Slack integration.

  • Guests can't use the Slack integration.
  • A ClickUp Workspace can only be connected to one Slack workspace at a time.
    • A Slack workspace can be connected to multiple ClickUp Workspaces at the same time.

Enable the Slack integration

Only Workspace owners and admins can enable the Slack integration.

To enable the Slack integration from the App Center:

  1. Browse for and select Slack.
  2. Click Connect.
  3. Click Add to Slack.
  4. Create or sign into your Slack account.
  5. Review the permissions required to connect ClickUp and Slack.
  6. Click Allow to grant ClickUp access.

Authorize personal Slack notifications

Once the integration has been enabled by a Workspace owner or admin, every user must personally authorize Slack notifications.

The user that enables notifications must be a member of the Slack channel in order for the channel to appear for the entire Workspace.

From the App Center:

  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click + Add notification.
  4. Select a Space, Folder, or List.

There is no limit to the number of Slack notifications each member can set up. If two members set up the same notification, you will see duplicates.

Troubleshooting

If you're unable to see all of your available Slack channels when enabling the integration, be aware that: 

  • The channel must not be deleted.
  • You must have joined the channel. 
  • Any new channels you create or join may take 5 minutes to sync and appear in ClickUp. You don't need to log out and log back in for new channels to be displayed in ClickUp.
