Intro to notifications

Notifications allow you to keep up with the work that you and your team are doing.

Notifications are specific to each Workspace, so you'll only see updates about the Workspace you're actively working in.

You will not receive notifications for actions that you perform. 

What you'll need

  • Notifications are available on all ClickUp Plans.
  • Everyone, including guests, can use notifications.
  • To report on notifications, Unlimited Plans and above can use the Who's Behind Dashboard Table card
  • Your own actions cannot trigger notifications for yourself.

New notifications

When you receive new notifications, you'll see a badge with the number of new notifications in the Sidebar.

  • Custom Fields changes.

Report on notifications

On Unlimited Plans and above, you can see who hasn't been clearing their notifications with the Who's Behind Dashboard Table card. This is an easy way to track your team's productivity!

Who's Behind reports:

  • Total uncleared notifications
  • Total overdue tasks

Both columns can be calculated by sum, average, or range. The total uncleared notifications and total over total overdue tasks are current so there's no need to filter by time period.
