Single sign on (SSO) via Google lets you login to ClickUp with your Google account to save you time and provide peace of mind.
Note: Google SSO is exclusive to the Business Plan and higher. To learn about our different plans, click here.
Note: If you are using a secondary domain in your Google Workspace and you would like to use both domains for SSO to the same ClickUp Workspace, you will need to use our Custom SAML SSO option instead, which is an Enterprise Plan feature.
Logging in with SSO
To login with Google SSO, you will first need to link your Google account to your ClickUp account. Note: to use Google SSO, your account must be associated with a Google Workspace organization.
If SSO is required, all of your existing Workspace members and guests will need to login with SSO and their accounts will be linked. Note: the Enterprise Plan offers the ability to exclude guests from SSO by selecting "all SSO except guests". When this option is selected, guests will not be able to log in via SSO, they must use their ClickUp username/password.
New people can sign up using the SSO link. This will create their ClickUp account already linked to their SSO account.
Existing Workspace members can also manually link their ClickUp & SSO account in their Preferences.
As an admin, visit your Workspace settings page and tick Google as the SSO provider

Your Google Workspace organization is now linked to your ClickUp Workspace
Customizing Security Settings
Workspace admins will be able to control if Google auth is required, as well as if members of your Google Workspace team will be automatically invited when signing up.
If Google auth is enforced, current Workspace members will be prompted to link their Google account to ClickUp. If they are already logged into a Workspace requiring SSO, they'll be prompted three times to set it up before it being forced to do so. At any time, you can check which people in your Workspace have linked their Google account.
When logging in, people will be forced to sign in with their Google account in order to access your Workspace.
If you want your colleagues to automatically be added to your ClickUp Workspace, be sure to tick that option. Then have them sign up with SSO (below).
