Google Single Sign On

Single sign on (SSO) via Google lets you login to ClickUp with your Google account to save you time and provide peace of mind. 
Google SSO is exclusive to the Business Plan and above. To learn about our different plans, click here.
Note: If you are using a secondary domain in your Google Workspace and you would like to use both domains for SSO to the same ClickUp Workspace, you will need to use our Custom SAML SSO option instead, which is an Enterprise Plan feature.

Logging in with SSO

To login with Google SSO, you will first need to link your Google account to your ClickUp account. Note: to use Google SSO, your account must be associated with a Google Workspace organization.

  1. If SSO is required, all of your existing Workspace members and guests will need to login with SSO and their accounts will be linked. Note: the Enterprise Plan offers the ability to exclude guests from SSO by selecting "all SSO except guests". When this option is selected, guests will not be able to log in via SSO, they must use their ClickUp username/password.

  2. New people can sign up using the SSO link. This will create their ClickUp account already linked to their SSO account.

  3. Existing Workspace members can also manually link their ClickUp & SSO account in their Preferences.

Enabling SSO

Admins and owners can enable SSO for your Workspace. To enable SSO:

  1. In the lower-left corner, click your avatar.
  2. Select Security & Permissions.
  3. Next to Single sign-on, select Google
  4. Click Continue.
  5. Log in with your work Google account.
  6. Your Google Workspace organization is now linked to your ClickUp Workspace.

Customizing Security Settings

Workspace admins will be able to control if Google auth is required, as well as if members of your Google Workspace team will be automatically invited when signing up. 

If Google auth is enforced, current Workspace members will be prompted to link their Google account to ClickUp. If they are already logged into a Workspace requiring SSO, they'll be prompted three times to set it up before it being forced to do so. At any time, you can check which people in your Workspace have linked their Google account. 

When logging in, people will be forced to sign in with their Google account in order to access your Workspace. 

If you want your colleagues to automatically be added to your ClickUp Workspace, be sure to tick that option. Then have them sign up with SSO (below).

Signing up with SSO

  1. Click Sign up with SSO 

  2. Click the Sign up with Google button

  3. If your admin has automatic invitations enabled, you will be automatically added to your ClickUp Workspace.

How to check who in your Workspace is using SSO

Admins can easily see who all on their Workspace has linked their Google account to ClickUp. 

  1. Open your Workspace settings

  2. Go to People

  3. People with a Google icon have setup SSO

Removing Google from your account

To manage your linked accounts, go to your profile settings, and scroll to the bottom. You will then see a list of the SSO accounts you have associated with your ClickUp account. From here, you can unlink your account to remove it.
