Person, Doc, Views, and Hierarchy Mentions

  • Updated

With the power of the @ symbol, mention a user, Team, task, Doc, views, or any level of the Hierarchy to quickly reference or tag members in your Workspace. 

 

Task URLs referenced in a task's description or comments are automatically recognized and stored in one convenient location on each task.

 

Task URLs are unfurled and automatically create a connection between the task you're viewing and the mentioned task.

 

Mention a Person or Team

In the task description or comments, you can type an @ symbol and a person's or Team's initials. This quickly returns anyone with those initials!

 

If you don't know the initials, you can type the @ symbol, or click the @ shortcut below the comment field to bring up the person selector. You can also mention assignees or followers directly using @watchers and @assignee.

 

Mention Spaces, Folders, Lists, & Views

Space, Folder, List, and view URLs are unfurled and automatically create a connection between the task you're viewing and the location you've mentioned!

 

Quickly embed a Folder, List, or View by pasting the URL and select the Embed from the Link Unfurl menu.

Task & Doc Unfurl

Simply use @@ to mention tasks and @@@ to mention Docs in a task description or comment field. Choose a task or Doc to create an unfurled link.

 

When searching for subtasks to mention, we'll always show the parent task so you can easily find the right one.

Mention a Doc

Doc mentions allow you to quickly open a Doc to make edits.

Tip: Give your Doc a unique emoji or icon as a page identifier to display alongside the page name anywhere it's mentioned.

 

Drag and Drop

Quickly move task and Doc mentions around to reorder them. This is especially useful when you are trying to create a priority list of tasks.

 

Hover

Hover over a task mention to see a task's location, title, status, and priority. You can open a task in a new tab, copy the link, or remove the mention.

 

One-Way Linking

When you mention a task in another task, linking occurs behind the scenes. 

 

Now, when you go back to the task that has been linked to, you'll find a mentions area in the bottom of your task window.

 

This counter shows how many other tasks are mentioned in this task. You can click to expand the list and quickly jump to each mentioned task.

Unfurl Goal links

Copy and paste a Goal link anywhere in ClickUp to automatically unfurl it.

 

Unfurl Block links

Copy and paste a Block Link from Docs or task descriptions anywhere in ClickUp to automatically unfurl it. You'll see the Doc or task title, along with a short preview of the block itself.
