    Single panel to organize whole organizations and departments. Helps keep everyone aligned on priorities and goals while providing clear, data-driven insights into ongoing projects and activities. Enables transparent information sharing across organizations. Digital HQ for all work-related topics and activities. You cannot work in 2023+ without a tool like ClickUp, if you do, you are shooting yourself in the foot before the race even starts. There are too many things to like, but it doesn't mean there aren't faults. On the contrary, there is so much room for improvement that future updates will only improve the product and hopefully fix the bugs. However, at the moment, there are some pressing issues: 1. Buggy across the board, too much functionality = more bugs and more strange interactions 2. Unbearably slow on occasions which happens more than not 3. Some Technical Design problems in functionality lead to behaviors that make 0 logical sense. (e.g Permissions and Access Control) 4. New functionality is nice, but make sure it works at speeds acceptable to the end user. Whiteboard recently added takes up to 2 mins to load fully. Modernizing digital working environment to enable collaboration and transparent information sharing. Enabling insights into projects, tasking and general working environment while enabling data-driven insights to help with decision making. Also, enabling our employees to move away from outdated technology like emails and various chat applications. Standardizing our internal way of communicating and working together. Similarly, we are using ClickUp to give clear insights into various accountabilities and responsibilities within the organization, enabling clear focus and prioritization. Further allows multiple departments to be aligned on the overall company goals. Hey Ronaldo! Thanks for the review. Your feedback is truly appreciated! We love hearing ideas for improvements from our users and we'd love for you to share your awesome suggestions on our feedback boards! Our Product team reviews every post and that's truly the best way for your ideas to be considered!

    I appreciate how user-friendly this platform is, it's Gantt chart function is the easiest to use and easiest for all stakeholders to read and understand. I have tried several different project management platforms and this is by far my favorite for project timeline management and work management. This platform has been popular with team members and business partners who have now begun to use this platform to manage their companies. Even better, is that ClickUp has a dedicated team of account support specialists to help our organization find the best ways to leverage the tool's various capabilities to help us succeed. The ClickUp team is constantly updating the application and adding new features, they are really listening to t heir users and addressing needs quickly. Their customer support team is responsive, fast, and great at resolving issues. I will continue screaming ClickUp's praises to anyone I can, this tool can help any organization. Thank you! I wish Clickup had more human resource capabilities to track teammate availability, the workload feature is helpful but does not yet account for holidays and individual time off. Absolutely take the leap, it doesn't take long to sign up and get started. If you have any questions, the ClickUp team has created a great deck of video resources to help you use the tool to its maximum potential. The biggest problem I have solved through ClickUp is creating Gantt charts that are easy to read and understand by team members, clients, and business partners alike. This is the first program and format that has been successful across all three groups. We have also leveraged ClickUp to successfully manage several different types of workflows across our organization and have had a lot of success implementing the system. It's been a fan favorite across all of our cross-functional teams. Hey, Shaelyn! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review! We're so happy to hear that you're enjoying a productivity boost with ClickUp! Don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything at all! Have an amazing and productive day!

    I love how clickup supports visibility and accountability. It's easy to collaborate on different projects and work within the platform. Click up can be set up for simple or complex use. They have a bunch of resources available to help you understand how to use and build within the platform. The only thing I can think of is when we used clickup to track paid time off. In calendar view the pto request (task) can not be closed because it won't appear on the calendar view. I also wish I could create sub folders. We use clickup for recruitment and I hate having to create different folders for our various tech teams, instead of it all living under one large tech folder with sub folders. Clickup is solving how we accept applications, tracking all personnel changes, onboarding and offboarding, employee reimbursements, agenda's for large meetings, and company goals. This benefits us because it streamlines all processes and supports visibility for those that need to be included. Hey, Melissa! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review! We're so happy to hear that you're enjoying a productivity boost with ClickUp! Innovation is also paramount, and we strive to deliver weekly releases that deliver game-changing features to boost your productivity. We value your feedback and want you to know we're listening. We would love an opportunity to assist you with finding workarounds that fit your needs! Please feel free to reach out to us via chat or email at help@clickup.com to discuss the available resources.

    The good side: 1. Many useful functions are available out of the box 2. You can customize architecture to almost any need 3. Everything revolves around the task, lists of tasks can be presented in different view options 4. There are basic possibilities for automating actions by configuring them in the interface 5. You can talk live with support and try to solve the problem. The bad, terrible sides 1. Works very slowly. According to our calculations, each our employee wastes about 4-5 (!) hours a week waiting for a response from ClickUp. 2. Notifications about events that have occurred almost never reach the recipient. If someone wrote you a message in the comment thread, then it is UNlikely that you will ever see it. 3. There is a separate notification window, but, with intensive work, in a couple of hours this window turns into a "trash can". You will never know what has changed in a specific task, if you do not look in the "trash can". You know - it will take a lot of your time ("notifictions" takes about 1-2 minutes to load (!), and you waste 10-15 minutes to find your notification - very bad architecture). 4. If there are many tasks in the list or folder, wait for 1-2 minutes for them to appear on the screen. 5. There are many "views", ie. different task views, but they are useless. The user cannot work normally with 70% of them, because buggy. Everyone knows about it. ClickUp knows about it. ClickUp developers add bugs to these "views" with each release. Example: Once we started to intensively use a calendar-view for day planning. On Saturday, the ClickUp developers updated the service. On Monday, we realized that the calendar-view stopped functioning. We wrote to them about the bug five times. After 2 months, the bug was fixed. It was a small interface problem that prevented users from using the calendar-view. Sad. 6. Do you think that if you pay, then your data belongs only to you? Service doesn't think so. Check out the list of 50+ services ClickUp shares information with: https://clickup.com/dpa/subprocessors. By the way, from YOUR browser, for YOUR money, ClickUp will send information to the Amplitude service and an ENCODED text to the "https://d.clarity.ms" address with every your action. Did you see that, in the link above, Microsoft is not listed? This is strange. You cannot unsubscribe from this. 7. You can talk to the live chat support. But you will curse everything while you explain the problem. Most likely, they will answer you with standard phrases or pretend that they do not understand that they are not answering the question. It is touching and annoying at the same time. The author of these lines has a long and tedious dialogue with support about twice a month. Each time I manage to explain the problem to them so that they understand. Every time they say they are just support and know nothing. Each time they say that they will contact the superbrain and it will fix everything. Nobody fixes anything every time. The superbrain may be sleeping on a sack of investment money in Hawaii. 8. There are reports (dashboards), but a report that will show at least something on the basis of which conclusions can not be drawn there. I've tried many times. And if you have an intensive work with tasks, then you don't even need to try to build a report, because it never gets displayed (slow service). 9. You cannot use ClickUp as a chat for employees, because everything is done in it to make this impossible. 10. We survived 3 different smartphone versions (native, made from web page and native again). Each of them cannot be used, because 1) the interface is not userfriendly 2) notifications are not received 3) the same comment is displayed three times in the task feed 4) ... etc. 11. My users hates ClickUp( At first it seems that ClickUp has everything you need and can be used in many different ways, but the devil is in the details. Literally every function has some kind of error that wastes your time. And the worst part is that each new weekly release can bring a bug to stable functionality. Sorry Zeb, I'm tired of saying the same thing for the 5th year in a row. We will look for alternatives. If your company employs up to 5 people and there is no strict NDA, everything will probably be fine. If you employ more than five people, you need to test this service on real data and people very carefully. Task management. ClickUp is a very slow, glitchy, but highly customizable task management tool.

    The features around workflow management, integrations with 3rd party services, and available automations are all top-notch. We were looking for one app to centralize everything, and ClickUp got us very close. We were very excited to migrate our team to ClickUp from Monday. The features were all better, there were many more integrations and automations, and it provided more diverse ways for us to manage our work. We were a little concerned about how slow it was after we migrated, but it was bearable and seemed worth the feature improvement. While it did get a bit faster over the 6 months we used it, we became less and less able to trust ClickUp as a work management tool. We had to deal with a lot of chaos created by bugs. In particular: Automations would completely fail every few weeks, and ClickUp did not do anything to ensure automations that should have happened in that window did happen,nor to alert us that this had happened so we would know to go figure out what was lost. The result was a lot of work falling through cracks because of automations that should have happened, but never did. We were never able to sort tasks in Kanban view. Well, we *could* do it, but it wouldn't stick. So then our employees would spend a bunch of time prioritizing tasks only to find upon next refresh that it was all lost. We discovered that our employees had started to manage their work outside of ClickUp to compensate! We were not able to trust that any data we entered would actually stick. We'd often find after populating a card with a ton of thought work that it just... didn't save. And if we changed two things on a card in quick succession (e.g. a time estimate and a status) that only one would save -- but since we weren't looking for this we ended up with confusing consequences and lost work. Again, we found that our employees had started using external editors to write the content they wanted to put into ClickUp tasks. Finally, there were a handful of significant outages that made ClickUp completely unusable for hours at a time. ~3 weeks ago we lost another round of work, discovered that *all* of our employees had been inventing their own additional systems to keep track of work because they didn't trust ClickUp, and it finally pushed us over the edge. We treated it as an emergency, suspended all operations, and migrated to a different service over ~3 days. Long story short: ClickUp prioritizes breadth of features over quality and has completely insufficient testing and deployment management. We were unable to trust it for essential business operations, and there is nothing you need to trust more when running a business than your work management tools. Note: This instability is a widely-felt experience (see the currently-top bug in their tracker, which has been at the top for months: https://clickup.canny.io/bugs/p/please-slow-down-a-little-bit-and-take-it-more-serious). We found that it created more ways to organize our work than some competitors, allowing us to re-think how certain things were planned, managed, and handed off. We ended up with better work management as a consequence.

    -built Integromat and Zapier connectors (that has since changed.) Ability to make a List View public (for client reporting needs) The ability to create and embed data in a ClickUp Doc that allows you to have pages. This is nice because you can create your own little reporting center that's organized by pages that is viewable from a simple link. (this is still the case, but embedding outside sources doesn't work so now we're out of luck.) I'm not even looking for awesome new features, I just want ClickUp to break what fixes and give enterprise-level customers (like me), some degree of added benefit. Their white-label feature is useless because it still uses the ClickUp loading icon. Using the software with any degree of automation whether with their own tools or through Zapier/Integromat is totally unreliable. Their support is pointless unless you have an issue that is extremely easy to fix. I loved ClickUp when I started using it 6-12 months ago. We use it for task management for our client campaigns. Almost all of these campaigns require the tasks to be created outside of the system but then placed into the system using Integromat or Zapier. These connectors worked great until they didn't. Now we're reliant on ClickUp and they won't fix the problems. This is the biggest issue I have, but I have another list as long as my leg with smaller issues. Go to their ClickUppers Facebook Group and you'll see how people have shifted on this company. If I sound mad, it's because I am. We trusted ClickUp to be the "app to replace them all", to be reliable, and to be something we can create company processes around. What happens when your company does all that (like we did), and ClickUp decides to focus more on new features and growth (to appease investors), rather than fix what breaks? You built a company on the backs of your customers, ClickUp, at least do right by them by fixing what breaks. Hey, Kevin! We truly appreciate the time that you are taking to share details about your experience: the good, the bad, and the ugly! We can take it, we promise! We know it's frustrating when anything falls short of expectations. We want ClickUp to be your go-to productivity platform, so when we miss the mark, we want to make it right. That's why we have a continued focus on hiring top-tier talent to expand our engineering teams so we can consistently deliver the delightful experiences you demand. Innovation is also paramount, and we strive to deliver weekly releases that deliver game-changing features to boost your productivity. We value your feedback and want you to know we're listening. It's a long road ahead as we work to make the world more productive. We would love another opportunity to assist you with your Zapier and Make integrations!

    Absolutely horrible - spend hours looking for guidance to get it to be a functional, useful product, but the only guidance is for complete beginners. Then, after all that precious time, it stops working. No easy way to rectify - I'm not signing up separately to a damn help centre. Awful product. Worthless.

    We used it very limitedly and only for a short amount of time. ClickUP did not work for our needs as promised. It was also time-consuming to use. We ended up going back to our old work flow management system.

    There is almost no comparison. With Trello, you basically only get the board view and it doesn't do recurring tasks. To me, it was basically useless. If you can't run your whole business using it, it's not useful. Teamwork Projects is more similar to ClickUp. However, Teamwork is SLOW! (hopefully they've sped it up recently) Also, Teamwork's organization and hierarchy is very strange. It's like they didn't start with the end in mind but instead just started extra features as they went. Teamwork is like $60/user compared to ClickUp, which is free for basically the same features (ok you can pay like $5/month for additional features and reports). The only substantial benefit to Teamwork is that Teamwork has a Gantt chart.
    ClickUp is great for basically every business. I think if you need recurring tasks, ClickUp is a clear winner as I don't think that is offered with Basecamp. Also, their free version is great! We just use the free version, even though the paid version is cheap, because it has everything you need. I think the important thing is to make sure you use it for everything in your business. As with any tool like this, if you integrate it into every part of your business and use it 100%, it will be great, if you only use it occasionally, it's basically useless.
    RECURRING TASKS - Their recurring tasks are great. There are all kinds of customizations you can use for how often tasks recur. Also, comments on recurring tasks get carried every time the task recurs, so you never forget anything. This was a big reason why we picked ClickUp over other tools. TASK STRUCTURE - It's very easy to use and keep everything into the correct tasks. Mentioning other tasks makes it easy to string things together. Also, it's great that we can assign comments, that makes it so we don't have to create quite as many tasks. Also, when a manager needs to review work, staff can just say "finished this draft, can you review?" and assign their manager. Their manager can mark it as complete once they've reviewed it. SO EASY CHROME EXTENSION - I love their chrome extension. I can click a button and create tasks in ClickUp without ever leaving my email, it also puts the email in the task as an attachment. I can also attach emails to tasks, which is great.
    List Templates - They have list templates, but the due dates get all mixed up whenever you use them. Right now you have to set specific dates and when you create the list using the template, you just set the first start date and all the other dates get moved according to that first date. However, usually I care more about the LAST due date, not the first. Also, they don't skip weekends or anything. I wish there was a way to set the due dates as "Day 1, Day 2" etc. and to have them skip weekends when they are created. Sharing Settings - They've kind of fixed this but before you could only control privacy access on the space level. Now you can set it on anything, however, there isn't a way to share lists, projects, or tasks with clients without them creating a login. They are planning to have this fixed soon though Documents and Files - You can easily attach files to tasks or lists, which is great. I would like it if you could also have an area where you could have files that pertain to the whole project, or the whole space, without having to be put in a specific list or task.

    Even though JIRA and Trello are very good software, they lack customizations and easiness of usage that ClickUp has. As well, Jira support is terrible, but ClickUp support is quick and effective. They will answer you back in less than a day and if they have no quick fix, they commit to [fixing] the issue as soon as possible. As well, ClickUp UI is much more friendly and updated than JIRA's one; easing the learning process for new members of the team
    I have used JIRA and Trello before as project management tools. However, they are limited in several aspects. Instead, ClickUp provides tons of customizations option that will always fit your needs. It does not matter if you have several projects or just one, the ClickUp system will match your requirements. As well, using it with colleagues is easy, its notifications system will make sure that everybody is always aware of the status of the work.
    Provide several task views depending on your needs Keep track of time budget and usage Migrating tasks from other platforms such as JIRA is very easy Their feedback system is great and they are very open to suggestions Their support answers back quick and it is very helpful
    Custom fields automatization should be easier to use and should have more options The UI may be slow sometimes or not load the whole information Their docs system is not stable. We have lost some information using it

    Compared to Monday.com and Asana rates, ClickUp offers all those services for free. It has super abilities to facilitate mass updates, make lists, organize tasks, assign tasks and collaboration. It's the best
    Tracking and organization of company projects is very easy and effective with ClickUp software. From simple lists to complicated projects, ClickUp software has been used to get things done as expected. It is a very effective software when addressing task management problem and tracking the progress of organization ongoing tasks and projects.
    This software organizes and categorizes different projects in an excellent manner. It allows color-coding of different categories of a project as main headers with subtasks underneath It allows sorting and filtration of tasks with priority. This enables the project team to work on urgent tasks first It supports mass editing of projects. This is achieved through the selection of multiple project lines, changing their due date, setting their priority and performing other modifications at the same time
    Although the color-coding feature is very useful, those colors are extremely light which makes it hard to notice them. More color coding options would make it better.

    In my current role, I would rate ClickUp as an invaluable tool for streamlining and improving our overall project management and productivity processes. In my role, a core aspect for me is the ability to have a clear overview of the organization's progress on strategic initiatives, ClickUp offers that through its Gantt chart view and calendar view. This would help me in determining the capacity of the particular team and plan the resources accordingly. ClickUp also provides the ability to set custom statuses, the ability to categorize tasks by different attributes, and the ability to filter and group tasks would provide me with a clear and granular view of the progress of a particular project, which is crucial to evaluate how the project is going and how to steer it in the right direction. Another aspect that would appeal to me is the flexibility of ClickUp, its ability to be used in many different fields, in our case, it would potentially serve as a central hub for all client projects, and its ability to customize the tool to fit specific needs would allow us to streamline our internal processes and workflows, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our teams. In addition, the fact that ClickUp offers integrations with other apps and services that we hope to make use of such as Trello, it would enable us to seamlessly bring together different tools and workflows, which would increase the efficiency of our teams. Finally, the ability to track time, and having a clear overview of the team's performance, would enable me to evaluate the performance of the team (for a particular project), and plan for the future. All in all, as an IT company, I would highly recommend ClickUp as a valuable tool for improving project management, team collaboration, and performance tracking.
    Well Suited 1) Project Management: ClickUp is well suited for managing website development projects with a lot of tasks and subtasks, the ability to organize tasks in folders and lists, and the ability to assign tasks and set due dates, would be a great help in planning, and tracking the progress of the project. 2) Time tracking: ClickUp allows for tracking time spent on tasks, this would be helpful for evaluating individual team performance, and for creating accurate project timelines and budgets.
    Gantt Chart and Calendar Views: ClickUp offers Gantt chart and calendar views that provide a clear overview of the team's progress (pertaining to individual projects) and workload. This helps me in determining the capacity of the team and plan the resources accordingly. Task Management: ClickUp offers a comprehensive task management system that allows individual departments and teams to easily plan, organize, and execute projects. The tool's intuitive and user-friendly interface makes it easy for team members to access and update task information, track progress, and collaborate with one another in real-time. Performance monitoring: The ability to monitor team performance and progress (on specific strategic initiatives and projects), would allow me to have a clear and concise understanding of how the initiative is progressing and how to steer it in the right direction.
    There is scope for better Reporting and Analytics. Whilst ClickUp offers some basic reporting and analytics, the options are somewhat limited in my view. Improving the reporting and analytics capabilities would provide more detailed insights into the individual unit's performance and progress, which would be helpful for decision making and resource planning. Time tracking options can be improved. Whilst ClickUp does offer time tracking, the options for tracking time are basic, for example, it doesn't offer a way to bill clients for time spent on a task, or detailed reports that reflect the actual time spent on a task compared to the estimated time, this would help in budgeting and resource planning. The mobile app experience should improve. Although ClickUp has a mobile app, it is not as feature-rich as the web version and has some usability issues. Improving the mobile app experience would make it more convenient for users to access and update task information while on the go.

    ClickUp is more sophisticated than Trello for managing projects as they have recurring tasks, the ability to set dependencies, sub-tasks with individual due dates. The comment options are about what we see in most tools, the notifications are really overwhelming. There are 3 nice ways to view the tasks and projects: board, list, calendar (time).
    We have tried three project management tools. Trello was too manual, ClickUp is more sophisticated, and Asana is geared most toward projects but has plenty of its own difficulties. ClickUp is simple to use, is a good communication tool, has the ability to set dependencies, sub-tasks (with due dates), recurring tasks, and has 3 views in the basic tool.
    We were using Trello but found it doesn't have the same capacity that ClickUp offers as far as allowing watchers on different projects/tasks and providing more views (board, calendar, list, and even Gantt chart if you have the premium version). We love the ability to create recurring tasks especially for the email team and their weekly build. In many cases the tools we have used previously are good for tasks, but not for projects. We can create dependencies and sub-tasks with due dates under a project and that has been extremely useful.
    There is a filter and a search bar labeled "filter" that's confusing. I would assume it would just be "search." The filter also states that you can list sub-tasks however it only displays one sub-task when this particular card has 4. The one it displays is also third on the list, strange functionality. If filtered by sub-tasks when you click on the card, it only goes to the sub-task not the project as a whole. The amount of notifications is super intense. I turned them off because I was getting a notification for the creation of a card, any changes made to the card, upcoming due date, past due date, comments made, etc. There are notifications that need to be set for Comments, Tasks, Dates, Apps, and Integrations for Email, Mobile, Web (in-app) and Browser. It took quite some time setting this up.

    Clickup is a great software for Scheduling Meetings and Delegating Tasks and While integrating with google Calendar it can really boost efficiency and make Scheduling easier than ever. And with Zoom meetings, we can Schedule Meetings and With Integrated google Calendar it makes the process hassle-free and We can Focus on more priority tasks.
    Pros: What I enjoy about ClickUp is that it's a highly potent tool that enables my team and I to keep track of projects, brainstorm ideas, generate documentation, content calendars, and planning, exchange tasks and documents with clients, and many more things that we are currently learning about every day. Cons:There may be some users who find ClickUp's workspace organization process a touch daunting. In my situation, I had to register on the ClickUp University website to learn about specific capabilities, but there was no explanation of how to produce the material from scratch in their lessons, which already had several workspaces with dummy data in them. Fortunately, I came across a few YouTube videos that demonstrated how to construct knowledge from scratch while using simple examples from our daily lives.
    The ability to easily follow an application's progress is great for gathering client feedback and departmental communication pertaining to a particular client. It is advantageous for agencies to add Guest users for free to individual projects. You can flexibly configure the notifications you want to receive for updates. Avoid spam.
    It doesn't support Epics which I really miss coming from Jira the desktop app doesn't update and I have to reload it all the time. There may be some users who find ClickUp's workspace organisation process a touch daunting.

    It's awesome, honestly. My teammate (Executive Assistant and Projects/Events Coordinator) can see my list and add/revise as needed. (I've given her that permission.) I can create tasks for her -- and it notifies me when she completes them and nags me to prompt her if she doesn't. We can have threaded conversations about a unique task - so it keeps everything tidy. (We honestly need to remember to do this more often. It would eliminate threads of emails that aren't attached to tasks!)
    Clickup was MUCH stronger in integrating emails, attachments, start dates, team assignments, and more. No comparison. Manual movements in iOS. iOS comparing to Web/Windows apps. Speed. And favorable price comparison too!
    ClickUp updates its interface across multiple devices instantly. It looks exactly the same on the web as it does in Windows - and functions exactly the same in iPhone. It lets us do recurring tasks (with incredibly exacting control over exactly how those tasks recur). We can "email a task" to ClickUp from Outlook and finally clear out our inbox (so we don't fall into the trap of using our inbox AS our to do list - which is deadly, because one's inbox is not easy to prioritize. Who KNOWS what lies beyond the deep. With Clickup, we just go to the task, grab the unique address link for that individual task, then forward the email to the that unique address link. And it's so FAST. Nearly instantly, that email's contents and any attachments now become part of the threaded conversation (and attachments) to that task! That's EXACTLY what we would have designed if we were inventing our own task management app!! We can create a "start" date for a task. (In other words, please get this out of my sight until March 20th, 2024. On that date, start nagging me that this task needs to be completed by April 1st 2024!) Then we can forget about it for now. It's the ulimate stress-reliever. Most everything is super quick, too -- even though we have scores of tasks. The iOS app is available offline if you've viewed it. And the desktop app integrates with Outlook, they say (even though our own Outlook Exchange server hasn't given us the power to integrate outside apps, sadly). Tons more features
    There's not a lot. I guess if I'm going to be picky, it feels awkward to me once my list has like... 50 or 70 items in the stack, to find the item I just added and try to move it manually around the list to some level of prioritization. Granted, I should probably only allow 10 things on my list, but ... if I have to do 70 things and they're all high priority, what am I supposed to do? There's a dropdown box upper right that supposedly lets me assign it a numerical priority, but it doesn't appear to work -- at least to me -- because I have my filters set up to keep dates in mind, I guess? Honestly, I've never made time to ask the company why it doesn't work. So even if I say I'd like the item to be number 5 in a list of 70, it still shows up after item 65. But I'm sure it's just me. It's still not a huge deal to grab the little 'handle' on that item and slide it up in priority. (I'm just glad it lets me manually assign the priority - both in the Windows app and on iphone.) Honestly, I can't think of anything else I'd change. (It's really that good.)

    In overall clickup is a very powerful software capable of making the task of managing complex projects an enjoyable experience. Clickup can be used both in business and personal life. When there is a marketing campaign to be run it can be distilled down to number of tasks that run both sequentially and parallel to meet the end goal of successful campaign. The content making for a blog and youtube channel can be broken in to several tasks that can be assigned to team members to accomplish and finally put together a high quality content that generates a lot of business leads. The different views makes it more meaningful to work with and view the whole process.
    The first and foremost thing that I like about the clickup is the customizability of the whole platform. It does not have guide on how to tailor your project so you can track it on clickup, what they give is a guide on how to customize the Clickup to track and manage your project whatever that might be. The complexity in anything comes with a price. You do need to know what you're doing and only use what you need without making it over-complex. Hence you can look at it a blessing as well as a difficulty. Therefore the beginning inevitably comes with a steep learning curve on how to use this powerful tool. Clickup is not only for the businesses and organizations. It's versatile and broad enough to be used for one's personal life management. Since we all know failing to plan is planning to fail, it makes no difference when it comes to one's personal life. The functions in it can be easily adopted to make personal routine t to run according to a timetable of your own. Personally I prefer to spend more time on clickup than on social media since it's much more realistic to see how one's own life unfolds than anyone else's. The advantage of using clickup for personal day to day management is that it's free for such purposes for life. It offers 5 workspaces on the free package and it's more than enough to track day today personal plan. If the payed version is needed this is not costly as well.
    The first thing I dislike is that the software comes with a lot of notifications enabled by default and no intuitive description where it can be configured to understand what it will do if I enable them. When you have an extensive number of tasks and projects defined the notifications can fill up your phone's notification bar, email inbox and desktop if you haven't decided on what to disable. This can be made easy if the notification configuration is made more intuitive and also making the content of the notification with more content that can be expanded if necessary. Another modification that could be done to the way it defines the time and date for a task. Currently the time is selected with a long drop down menu which makes it very difficult to select the time when there are lot of tasks to define. It quickly becomes whole lot of repetitive scrolling to get to the time slot. This can be simplified by inserting a configurable clock face instead of the drop down list. The arms of this interactive clock face can be made to select the hour numbers and then minutes. Just with two clicks the time is defined.

    My overall experience has been fantastic. ClickUp has been a great tool that did exactly the things that I wanted. I want to view each project by it's Kanban Board, but then view each day's tasks in a list. ClickUp does that. I have totally different status flows for Marketing Projects than I do for Design Projects, and another totally different status flow for Print Production. ClickUp let's me set project specific Statuses - so my marketing project can be "Running" and my print project can be "At Printers". This is HUGE in my world. I want to assign Priorities within a project. Done - Priority Flags are native in the free version. I want to make a checklist that repeats on every marketing campaign, so that we have a QC checklist before we hit go on any campaign. And I want to save that checklist so I don't have to retype it on every project. Done - Checklist templates are native in the free version. I want to have nested tasks that have to be completed before other tasks can be cleared, and I want to see what subtasks are blocking projects. Done - task dependencies are native in the free version. I hope by now you're noticing a pattern here. If you're at all unhappy with your current Project Management Software, try ClickUp. It probably fixes the exact thing that you don't like about your current software.
    My Quick Rundown of Pros - Very Robust System. Has tons of functionality - Fully Customizable. With a bit of tweaking it becomes your own custom project management software. - Great Customer Service. Very responsive with tons of help to get everything customized just for you. - Keep Adding New Features. What was already a robust system keeps getting new tools and features. - High Quality Free Version. They don't skimp on features for the free version. Most everything is included. The ClickUp Team basically took all of the things I hate about other project management tools and fixed them. Some tools only allow Done/Not Done. Some are only Board Views. Some are only Task Views. Some don't have a chat feature. Some don't let you make your own categories. On and on it goes. ClickUp does everything. Literally everything. And it's all customizable. Everything can be tuned to exactly the way I need it. If you like board views, you can have board views. If you like list views you can have list views. If you want a project status called "Waiting for Margaret's OK" you can do that. You can set ClickUp to fit your exact, custom needs. It's really incredible. The ability to customize everything to exactly what you need makes all of its robust tools actually work for your specific situation.
    The best thing about ClickUp, full customization, is also it's Achilles Heel. There is a lot of stuff to customize and set up in order to get the software really running optimally. You can do just a simple Done/Not Done set up, but that seems like kind of a waste considering the options you have available. All that set up takes time and a lot of tweaking and adjusting even after everything is set up.

    We use ClickUp as an internal project management tool to structure and distribute pending tasks. We also track time, monitor the status and progress of tasks, integrate relevant documents, plan to-dos, assign, report and communicate through ClickUp. The tool can really do a lot and has helped us structure processes better and work on projects more consistently and efficiently. I also like to use it to plan and structure my tasks and feel I have a good overview of everything. The advantage is quite clear that project-related communication is done centrally. Then, the creation of a task list is not so tedious, because it can be done relatively quickly by assigning times. A task list is then automatically created from this - collaboration is now easier!
    With ClickUp, you have quite a few functions in one place and you can use the tool in various ways. Whether it's project management, time tracking, archiving, document management, content planning, or briefings, ClickUp is really extensive and you can work in teams on different to-dos, assign tasks, enter times and deadlines, and so on. This way you can also see who is working on what and how busy the team is. ClickUp can be designed quite individually and I don't think you have to be tech-savvy to find your way around the tool. While there are a lot of features, nothing is really complicated. You can display different views, create to-do's as recurring, create dummy cards or even entire projects as templates, and much more.
    Since there are so many functions, in my opinion, setting up the tool is quite time-consuming and complex. Sometimes things get lost and are not so easy to find again. It is better to be aware in advance of how you want to work with the tool and how it should be structured because it will grow quickly and become independent.

    Clickup has contributed to the establishment of our own system, based on cooperation among all members to achieve success in managing our projects. Now with Clickup, every member is a participant in planning and preparing schedules, knows his tasks accurately and knows the dates for their completion, and he can also ask for help if he needs it through the distinctive notification system that works efficiently with e-mail and through the phone application.
    It's great to be able to have a semi-free platform to help you set deadlines, priorities, and specific people to work on any of your projects, which Clickup can do very efficiently. Clickup will help you customize tasks so that your team's functions become more visible. It is a powerful software that contributes to better project scheduling and enables all team members as well as stakeholders to know what needs to be done and when it needs to be completed. I enjoy Clickup's easy-to-use interface and options as well as the perfect view of the programs, plus it also acts as a master database for the project where you find all the documents and data that team members have shared among themselves during task updates. It may only take a few days for you to get used to all the features.
    There is not a lot of negative in ClickUp, as there is no doubt that the positive things overwhelm it, it may only take a few days until you get used to all the features, and you and the rest of the team members can achieve the best scheduling and follow-up of all the tasks you are working on.

    Overall, I have found ClickUp to be a valuable tool for managing projects and improving team productivity. Its flexibility, collaboration features, and integration capabilities make it a strong choice for many organizations. However, the cost and learning curve may be a drawback for some users.
    We were looking for a more comprehensive project management solution. It's ability to switch projects to different views such as gantt and list views, robust communication and collaboration features and the speed is what made us ultimately decide to make the switch.
    Flexibility: ClickUp offers a wide range of customizable features, allowing me to tailor the platform to fit the specific needs of my team and projects.Collaboration: ClickUp makes it easy for my team to collaborate and communicate, with features such as real-time updates, commenting, and file sharing.Integration: ClickUp integrates with a variety of other tools, including Google Drive and Trello, making it easy to incorporate into our existing workflow.Productivity: The platform offers a variety of productivity features, including the ability to set deadlines, track progress, and prioritize tasks, which has helped to improve the efficiency of our team.
    Cost: Depending on the size of your team and the features you need, ClickUp can be a bit pricey.Learning curve: It can take some time to fully understand and utilize all of the features that ClickUp offers, which can be a bit overwhelming for new users.
