Our Favorite ClickApps & Integrations for ClickUp

March 20, 2023

If you use ClickUp as your day-to-day project management tool, you know it’s amazing for just that. But did you know you can take it to the next level through ClickApps and integrations?

Before we dive in, let’s back up a minute to explain what we’re talking about.

What are ClickApps?

According to ClickUp, ClickApps let you customize your experience within your Workspaces.

By utilizing these different tools, you can:

  • Save lots of time
  • Reduce juggling between different apps
  • Streamline processes and communication
  • Keep assets organized and in one place
  • And so much more!

To activate new ClickApps, all you have to do is go to SETTINGS > CLICKAPPS to get to work.

And if you’re not sure where to start, we’re breaking down our favorite ClickApps and integrations below!

ClickApp: Automations

Automations are really what take your ClickUp to the next level, especially if you're working with a team. With ClickUp Automations, you can set up triggers and actions to make your workflow smoother and more efficient. It's like having a personal assistant that does all the boring stuff for you!

ClickApp: Dashboards

ClickUp Dashboards let you make your own perfect view of your projects and tasks. So, you don't have to sift through irrelevant information anymore. You can get real-time updates on what's happening in your projects, all in one place. No more bouncing between different spaces, folders, and lists to find the latest info so you can focus on what matters most and reach your goals faster.

ClickApp: Screen Recordings

ClickUp screen recorder is a great way to show and tell without all the hassle of scheduling meetings or writing long emails. Just record your screen and share it with whoever needs to see it. Whether you're explaining a complicated process, giving feedback, or presenting a new idea, ClickUp screen recorder makes it easy to communicate clearly and effectively. Plus, you can do it all without leaving your workspace!

ClickApp: Email in App

With ClickUp's in-app email, you can keep all your communication in one place, making it easier to find and track important messages. No more hunting through your inbox for that one email you need!

So what's the difference between ClickApps and Integrations?

ClickApps and ClickUp Integrations are two different ways to extend the functionality of ClickUp.

ClickApps are built-in features and tools that are developed by ClickUp themselves. They are essentially add-ons that enhance the features and capabilities of ClickUp. ClickApps are available to all users and can be used without any additional setup or configuration.

On the other hand, ClickUp Integrations are third-party tools or services that connect with ClickUp to provide additional functionality. These integrations allow users to connect ClickUp with other apps and services they use, such as Google Drive, Gmail, or Slack. ClickUp Integrations can be installed from the ClickUp marketplace, and users may need to set them up and configure them to work properly.

In summary, ClickApps are features developed by ClickUp, while ClickUp Integrations are third-party tools that can be added to ClickUp to provide additional functionality.

Let's go through a few of my favorite Integrations!

Integration: Cloud Storage

Through the Cloud Storage, you can connect your ClickUp to various storage tools, like:

  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox
  • OneDrive
  • Sharepoint
  • Box

So, if you store documents and assets in one of these places, you can link directly to them in ClickUp! For example, DaSilva Life uses ClickUp to manage our entire YouTube creation process, but we store all of the assets in DropBox. Through this ClickUp Integration, we can integrate our DropBox folders and attach them to tasks so they show up automatically!

As a result, we save tons of time clicking back and forth between the two apps.

Integration: Zapier

Zapier is one of our all-time favorite integration tools. Think of Zapier as an integration that has more integrations. That’s because Zapier itself is an integration tool that allows you to connect thousands of apps beyond just ClickUp.

We use Zapier to integrate ClickUp with:

  • Google Calendar (which is super helpful for scheduling meetings and time-blocking)
  • Gmail
  • Google Docs
  • And more!

But don’t let that be your limit – Zapier can connect your ClickUp to Microsoft Teams, Zoom, your time-tracking tools, and so. much. more!

Integration: Slack

Tons of businesses usually use a communication tool to keep teams on track. Our pick for that? Slack!

When you use ClickApps to connect your ClickUp and Slack, there’s so much you can do! For example, say you get a message in Slack about something that you want to delegate, assign, or save. Instead of writing it on a piece of paper or trying to remember it (who has time for that?!), you can add it to ClickUp without ever leaving Slack! Here’s how:

Once you integrate Slack and ClickUp, all you have to do is right-click in Slack to:

  • Create a task: Search for the right task list, then fill out additional details as you want, like description, assignee, due date, and priority. Then your new task will be automatically populated in ClickUp!
  • Attach comment: Again, search for the task you want to add a comment to, and it will turn your Slack Message into a comment in ClickUp! (And your ClickUp comment will link back to Slack!)
  • Save to notepad: If you have a running list of to-dos, brain dumps, or anything else stored in your ClickUp Notepad, you can add Slack messages to them! Just search for the Note Name and voila!

And if you want to make this integration more robust, you can connect ClickUp and Slack through Zapier, too! This integration will send Slack messages to appropriate team members and channels whenever a task status changes.

For example, if you change a task in ClickUp to ‘Ready for Review,’ it can automatically send a message to that assignee to let them know! This adds another layer of communication to fellow team members or clients, so nothing slips through the cracks and inboxes don’t get crowded.
