Why Use the Tray

  1. Priorities aren't always 100% accurate.

  2. Tasks with overlapping due dates aren't ideal.

  3. Tracking tasks through the notifications feed can be overwhelming.

Use the Tray with Docs

Put Docs you're actively working on in your personal Tray, right next to your minimized tasks!

Use your Tray to keep Docs and tasks handy you search your Workspace for information or have conversations with your team.

Minimize Tasks to Tray

You can also conveniently send a task to your tray from many places in your Workspace!

From a task window: locate the minimize button in the upper-right corner of the window and click to dock the task into your tray 

From Notifications: hover over the notification and select the button shown below

How to send a task to your tray via your Notifications

Don't fear tasks being misplaced!

  • Opening ClickUp in a new browser tab will retain your docked tasks for further use!

  • Minimizing (or closing) a task with a partially written comment will save the comment as a draft.

Reordering Items in Your Tray

Rearrange the tasks in your tray with the following task handle - great for lining them up in the order you want to tackle them!
