How we use docs

Feature details

Lists in ClickUp often represent a feature. We break this feature down into steps and each page details what needs to happen for the feature to function properly. This really helps everyone on the Workspace understand what they're working on, and it makes writing documentation for the public easy when we're done!


For example, we create a doc view for each of the custom templates you're able to use in ClickUp. This makes it simple for our users to understand what they're looking at and how things are structured in a glance. We even throw in some tips for getting the most out of these templates. 

Contact Information

We've created a Workspace contact list with everyone's details. This makes it easy to get ahold of anyone in the Workspace, even if they're not online. 

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