Intro to Reminders

Never forget anything ever again with Reminders!

Use reminders to quickly create smaller action items that don't require a task. You can create them for yourself or delegate them.

What you'll need

Create a reminder

You can create reminders throughout the platform.

  1. There are several ways to create a reminder:

    • From anywhere in your Workspace, use the r hotkey.

    • Using the Quick Action menu:

      • ClickUp 2.0: In the lower-right corner, click the Quick Action menu, then click Reminder.

      • ClickUp 3.0: From the toolbar at the top-right, click the Quick Action menu, then click Reminder.

    • From the My Work section of any Profile, hover over the relevant section and click + Reminder.

    • From the quick create modal in ClickUp 3.0: In the upper-right corner, click New, then click the Reminder tab.
    • From a comment.

      • Reminders created from comments are independent and unrelated to the comment or task the comment is located in.
    • Using the Command Center.
  1. Customize your reminder:

    • 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.

    • 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

  2. Once you've set the parameters of your new reminder, click Save to finalize!

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

View your reminders

You can view all your existing reminders alongside tasks 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 mark it as complete, convert it to a task, and more.

Options include:

  • 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.
