Examples

Here are a few examples of how we use Embed views at ClickUp!

Content Management: Google Sheets

At ClickUp, we track landing page versions and updated dates in Google Sheets. That's why we added a Google Sheets Embed view on the List that contains tasks for optimizing our site's pages! 

Instructional Videos: YouTube

We work on features in Lists in ClickUp. Instructional videos are added alongside the task list via Embed views whenever we plan a new feature to give people more information.

Roadmap: Google Sheet

In our roadmap Folder, we've added an HTML Embed view with our feedback board that lets us check for updates, review comments, and make changes for our audience without leaving ClickUp.
