Microphone permissions (not recording audio)

If you do not see that pop-up (Chrome):

If you do not see that pop-up (Firefox):

  1. Try recording a new Clip, it may ask you again if you would like to use your Microphone, like this:

  2. If it does not ask you, then start recording a Clip and press the microphone icon next to the URL. Then click the 'X' next to 'Blocked' in the Microphone section. This will allow ClickUp to ask you at the start of the next Clip you record

  3. Record a new Clip and allow permissions!
