From a Profile

To create a reminder from the My Work section of a Profile:

Create a reminder from a comment. Reminders created from comments are independent and unrelated to the comment or task the comment is located in.

From the Command Center

To create a reminder, open the Command Center:

  1. In either ClickUp version from anywhere in your Workspace, press Cmd + K on Mac or Ctrl + K on PC.
    You can also open Command Center by clicking Search located in the toolbar.
  2. In the Command Center search bar, type create then select Create New Reminder

Set up and save your reminder

Once you've created a reminder, you'll set up the following options:

  • Reminder name: Name your reminder.

  • Attachments: Add files that are related to your reminder.
  • There is a 1 GB file size limit for attachments.
  • Reminder date: Set the date for the reminder. It is set to today by default.
  • If you have a reminder that needs to be repeated, you can create a recurring reminder.
  • Assignee: By default, a reminder is assigned to you and remains private. You can delegate a reminder by changing the assignee.
  • Notify me: Customize notification options for your reminder. Options include:
    • On due date
    • 10 minutes before
    • 1 hour before
    • Custom...
    • Don't notify
  • To save your reminder, click Create Reminder. 

Mobile users with Apple devices can also create ClickUp reminders with Siri.

See your reminders

You can see all your reminders in the My Work section of your Home or Profile.

They are also shown in the Agenda section of your Home or Profile if they are set to notify you at a specific time.

Reminders are connected to your account, not a specific Workspace. If you have multiple Workspaces, a reminder created in one will appear in the Home view of any other Workspace. If you need to create something for a specific Workspace, convert your reminder to a task instead. 

Reminder options

Hover over any reminder in Home or Profiles to access the following options:

  • Done: Mark a reminder as complete.
  • Snooze reminder: Change a reminder's due date and time.
  • Add to List: Convert a reminder to a task by adding it to a List.
  • Delegate: Assign the reminder to someone else.
  • Delete: Permanently delete the reminder.
  • Warning: Deleted reminders cannot be recovered.
  • Notify me: Adjust the reminder's notification settings.
