Cloud Storage: Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive/SharePoint & Box

  • Updated

Connect Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive/SharePoint, and Box to ClickUp to quickly attach files and even create new Google Files from ClickUp!

Cloud storage is available on our Unlimited Plan and above. Cloud Storage integrations are available for use with the web app only.

People can authorize a single Google, Dropbox, OneDrive/SharePoint, or Box account per user per Workspace. This means you can use a different account for each Workspace you're in! 

How to Enable/Disable Cloud Storage

  1. Visit your Settings page

  2. Click Cloud Storage 

  3. Toggle the integration of your choice 

  4. Authorize the application for your Workspace

Note: When removing your Google account, it will be removed from the entire Workspace for security reasons. This will impact sending email from ClickUp, integrating your Google Calendar, and uploading attachments from Google Drive. You'll need to re-add your Google account to continue using these features.

No need to leave ClickUp to access your Google Drive files. View Slides, Docs, Sheets, and so much more directly in your tasks!

Why is a Paid Plan Required?

ClickUp's business model is centered around storage. With cloud storage, a Workspace would never reach their storage limit rendering our business ineffective, and we need to stay in business so you can keep enjoying ClickUp!
