Have you ever chatted about something, only to later find your comments lost... or even worse, not attended to? 

Now, you can keep your conversations alongside your work!

Pro Tip: Many people replace Slack Channels with ClickUp Chats! 

Talk about items unrelated to specific tasks - in any view or location in ClickUp. These give you all the same power of attachments, notifications, unfurled task links, and even embedding.

How We Use Chats

Discussing Product

Chats are a great place to discuss anything your heart desires - and our heart always desires our own product :)

Replacing Slack Channels

Slack channels are fine, but what happens when you're discussing a new project or initiative? Not only is the conversation buried under all the other noise, but you also have to go back and forth between ClickUp and Slack. Not anymore! 

Managing Sprints

We create unique chats for each topic in a new release we're planning. For example, we might have a List called Sprint 2.0 that has a chat about design, a chat about server updates, and a chat about what's changing in our documentation!

Sharing Code

With code text formatting it's easy to discuss solutions to programming problems and ideas for bug fixes. Go ahead, try it out!

Have suggestions for chat views? We'd love to hear about them here!
