Merge tasks to combine and consolidate similar items.
You can combine task descriptions, assignees, comments, attachments, and subtasks.
At ClickUp we merge tasks to manage bug reports. Multiple people often report similar bugs. We merge those tasks together so our team can capture the details about a bug in one place.
What you'll need
When you merge two tasks together, specific information is added to the second task.
For example, if we merge task A into task B:
Task B keeps its title
Task A's description is added to the bottom of task B's description
Task A's assignees are added to task B
Task A's comments are added to task B
Task A's attachments are added to task B
Task A's subtasks are added to task B
Task A's Custom Field values are only added to task B if task B doesn't have any information in the same Custom Field
If task A has a Custom Field that isn't available on task B, we'll prompt you to either:
Add selected CFs: Adds the Custom Field to task B
Do nothing: merge the tasks without retaining the Custom Field
