Preview and edit website links

When linking to websites outside of ClickUp, choose between embedding the link, hyperlinking, or creating a Bookmark Card.

When you hover your mouse over hyperlinks, you'll see a preview of the linked website content.

Create a Bookmark Card to display your links in a clean box that includes a snippet of text and any available images.

This is a great way to display articles, tweets, or anything from the web in your Docs and tasks!

Hover to Preview, Copy, and Edit Website links

Simply hover over a website link to see a preview of the website's content, including the title, description, and an image (if the linked website provides this information).

Edit, copy, or delete the hyperlink using the icons shown on the top right of the preview window.

Note: Users with view-only or comment permissions will only be able to copy the link to their clipboard

Automatic embeds

Some website links (such as YouTube and Figma) will automatically embed content when you paste them into a task or Doc!

If you'd rather just paste the plain hyperlink, simply use these handy keyboard shortcuts instead.

Mac: CMD + Shift + V
Windows: CTRL + Shift + V

Tip: You can disable automatic embeds using the plain text links setting which can be found under My Settings.
