Comments are one of our most powerful tools for collaboration.
You can ask and answer questions, get feedback, provide approval, track quick wins, and format content with rich text, embeds, and attachments.
What you'll need
If your comment requires effort from anyone in your Workspace, simply assign it! This creates a new required item for the assignee to complete before the task can be closed.
Tip: Assign threaded replies as well so action items never get lost!
Mention people in comments
Simply type @ and the name of the person or team you want to mention.
Organize your task, image, and Doc comments by nesting your replies with threaded comments!
Threaded comments work by starting a completely new conversation right underneath a parent comment for a more focused discussion.
Soon, threaded comments will be available everywhere in ClickUp, like in Chat views and Dashboards. If you don't want to use threaded comments, simply turn off the ClickApp!
Keep conversations organized by highlighting text to reply to specific parts of a comment! This is especially useful if someone asks you multiple questions in a comment or there's lots of activity in your task.
Providing as much information as you can to your teammates ensures expectations are clear and tasks are completed as thoroughly and efficiently as possible.
Click and drag your cursor over text while creating a comment to reveal your editing choices.
You can also:
tag other users
mention another task
use emojis ✅
Create new tasks and subtasks from the rich text toolbar in the comments section of an existing task. This is a helpful way to organize your work so you can come back to it later.
Click and drag your cursor over text while creating a comment to open the toolbar.
Link to comments
Reference comments in ClickUp to share information with people anywhere.
Simply copy the comment URL from the ellipsis ... menu.
As long as the person has access to the task, they will be directed to the highlighted comment from the link.
React to comments
Give reactions to comments using one (or more) emojis to express exactly how you're feeling. 😄 Reactions quickly communicate acknowledgment and understanding whenever your colleagues update a task.
Set comment Reminders
Notifications piling up? Never forget about a comment again! Use the Remind me option on any comment to turn the text into a Reminder. The Reminder will live in your Inbox and appear on the date you select!
