Embed content in ClickUp

  • Updated

Embed interactive content from other platforms right into ClickUp!

You can embed content into tasks, comments, Docs, views, and Dashboard widgets simply by pasting a link to a YouTube video, Figma design, a Google sheet and more!

You can watch, read, and edit content from those platforms all without leaving ClickUp!

What you'll need

Supported Platforms

When you paste a link from the following websites, the content will be automatically embedded.

  • YouTube

  • Vimeo

  • Loom

  • CloudApp

  • Google Drive

  • VideoPress

  • Figma

Embed content using a website link

Content from the supported platforms will be embedded as an iFrame.

You can copy and paste a link, or use the /embed Slash Command and add a link to task descriptions, Docs, and comments.

Tip: You can turn off the auto-embed option from My Settings to use plain links instead. You can then convert plain links to embedded content.

Resize embedded content

Once you embed content, you can resize it!

  1. Hover over your embedded content.

  2. Click the ellipsis ... icon in the top-right.

  3. Select Show preview or Hide preview to resize your embed.

  4. You can also click on the corners of your embedded content to manually resize it.

Use an Embed view

You can also embed content as a view in your Workspace. View and work with external content right alongside your work.

Along with the supported platforms, you can also embed content if a website provides HTML code.

Tip: Having trouble editing an embedded spreadsheet? Make sure that it's a Google Sheet, not an Excel spreadsheet in your Google Drive!

Embed content on Dashboards

Add content from other platforms and websites to your Dashboards using our Embed widgets.

You can position and resize embed widgets right alongside your other widgets.

You can also embed content if a website provides HTML code.

Embed content using our Desktop App
