Natural Language Processing for Dates and Times

  • Updated

ClickUp can magically interpret dates and times without having to type out the full thing!

How it Works - Examples

When you're setting a start or due date for a task or if you're adding manual time, simply type as you would speak. Try things like this: 

  • tomorrow at 3pm  or tomorrow 3pm   

  • four hours  or 4 h  

  • next week or next tues

  • next month 

  • 2m , 2 months 

  • fri 2pm

When adding manual time, try things like:

  • 1h = 1 hour

  • 2m = 2 minutes

  • 3s = 3 seconds

  • 1h2m3s = 1 hour, 2 minutes, 3 seconds!

All you need to do is press enter to save!

Autofill and Other Interpretations

Save even more time and let ClickUp determine the words you're using. 

Examples:

  • tom => tomorrow 

  • tod => today

  • wk => week

  • y, yr, yrs => year

  • p => pm
