Chat view

  • Updated

Have you ever chatted about something, only to later find your comments lost... or even worse, not attended to? 

Now, you can keep your conversations alongside your work!

Many people replace Slack Channels with ClickUp Chats! 

Talk about items unrelated to specific tasks - in any view or location in ClickUp. These give you all the same power of attachments, notifications, unfurled task links, and even embedding.

Chat view features

Chat view conversations feature many of the same features as comments, including:

  • Mentions of people, Docs, views, locations, and tasks.

  • Watchers of this chat (who will get notifications for any updates).

  • Attachments.

  • Unfurled links.

  • Rich text formatting.

  • Emojis and reactions.

Chat use cases

Here are some creative ways to keep your team on the same page with Chat views.

Casual team chats 

Welcome new team members, share fun facts and trivia, chat about your weekend plans, or share an epic playlist with your team.

Discussing product

Chats are a great place to discuss anything your heart desires, especially your next big product idea!

Replace Slack channels

Slack channels are fine, but what happens when you're discussing a new project or initiative? Not only is the conversation buried under all the other noise, but you also have to go back and forth between ClickUp and Slack.

Managing Sprints

Create unique chats for each topic in a new release you're planning. For example, you might have a List called Sprint 2.0 with a chat about design, a chat about server updates, and a chat about what needs updating in your documentation!

Sharing Code

With code text formatting it's easy to discuss solutions to programming problems and ideas for bug fixes.
