Release 2.97

Improved Desktop App

Ready to be at the top of your productivity game? You just scored with our improved Desktop App! 💪


That's right—we took extra care to squash a bunch of bugs & add new features to provide you with a far superior Desktop experience! 💃


Here's a rundown on the new features we've added:

  • Create a new task from anywhere! 📝 CMD + E/CTRL + E

You can be in Chrome/Safari, checking your email, or anywhere! Simply hit CMD + E on your keyboard and you will immediately be taken to the quick create task popup in the app. Prefer a different command? Easily change the command from your Desktop settings!

  • Quickly find exactly what you need! 🔍 CMD + F/CTRL + F

If you're looking through a long Doc, large list of tasks, or even a comment chain, you can now search for specific text and be taken right to it!

  • Instantly see how many unread notifications you have! 🔴

Busy day with lots of meetings and tabs? We've added a notifications badge to the Desktop App icon to give you a quick glance at the number of notifications that are waiting for you!

  • Launch on Startup! 👩‍💻

Jumpstart your productivity! Adjust your Desktop settings to have ClickUp launch as soon as your computer boots up!

  • See time tracked anywhere you go on the menu bar! (Mac OS only) ⏰

For our time tracking power users, you can now see your timer in your Mac menu bar no matter where you are on your device.

  • Sign in to your Google account!* 🔐

A long-time annoyance is now solved! You can sign in to your Google account directly from the Desktop app to sync your Calendar, send emails, and attach files from Google Drive to tasks.

*Attaching files from Google Drive and other cloud storage services is available on the Unlimited, Business, and Enterprise plans.

  • Get notifications on your desktop! 🔔

Now you can close ClickUp on your browser and still get notifications, ensuring you don't miss anything important!

  • Lots more features rolling out over the coming months! 🥳
