Sync ClickUp activity with Slack channels

Using the integration with Slack, you can receive activity messages about new ClickUp tasks, status changes, new comments, new attachments, or assignee changes without ever leaving Slack.

What you'll need

  • The integration with Slack is available on every ClickUp plan.
  • Guests can't enable Slack activity messages.
  • The integration with Slack must be enabled before Slack activity messages can be enabled. 
  • You can only integrate one Slack workspace with ClickUp at a time.
  • There is no limit to the number of Slack activity messages you can set up. If multiple people in your Workspace set up the same activity messages, you won't see duplicates.

Sync ClickUp activity with Slack channels

Decide which activity messages are sent to Slack.

From Slack in the App Center:

  1. Next to Sync ClickUp Activity to Channels, click Add.
  2. Select a Space, Folder, or List.
  3. Select a Slack channel to send the activity message.

    You can only select public channels you're in or private channels with ClickUp access for activity messages. You can give ClickUp access to a private channel using the /invite @ClickUp command.

  4. Customize the activity messages:
    • Assigned to me: Only send activity messages for tasks assigned to you.
    • Include Private: Include private tasks, Lists, and Folders.
    • Types of activity messages: Select what type of task activity messages you want to receive.

Tasks in multiple Lists will only create Slack activity messages if their home List is included in the selected location. 

You can create a separate #clickup channel in Slack for these updates.

Give ClickUp access to private Slack channels

Before you can select a private Slack channel for activity messages, you must give ClickUp access to the channel.

To give ClickUp access to a private Slack channel:

  1. Right-click the Slack channel and click View channel details.
  2. Click the Integrations tab.

  3. Select Add an App.
  4. Search for ClickUp.
  5. Click Add.

The channels that appear when creating Slack notifications are determined by which ClickUp user set up the integration. All Slack channels that the user is a member of will appear.
