ClickUp's native Automations also support workflows with external applications.
With the Calendly integration, when an invitee schedules an event in Calendly, you can automatically create a task in ClickUp with all of the meeting's information! This is great for organizing logistics and action plans with your team based off of scheduled events.
Note: Due to Calendly limitations, you must have a Calendly premium account to use this Automation.
How to enable Calendly
1. Open the Automation Center in ClickUp
Select the List you'd like to automate and open the Automation center. Click the Calendly option in the sidebar to see all of the Automations you can create!
Once you've chosen the Automation you want to create, you'll be taken to a new screen where you can add an account OR pick from any existing accounts that you have access to.
2. Connect your Calendly account
- Click on the Calendly Automation
- Name your Authentication
- Go to https://calendly.com/integrations to get your Calendly API token
4. Enter the token in ClickUp
5. Set who will be able to use this account to create Automations
Note: Once you save an account, you cannot edit it. The only way is to remove that account and re-authenticate it. Removing an account will not break any Automations that use that account. It will just make that account unavailable as an option when creating new Automations.
That's it! You're ready to set up Calendly Automations in ClickUp.
What you can do with Calendly Automations
- When an event is created
Actions available in ClickUp
Currently, the only action available in ClickUp when using a Calendly trigger is to create a task with the event information.
There are none available at this time.
Dynamically map data when creating a new task! Open the drop-down next to a field to see all supported fields from Calendly. Set static values if you want to do something like assign every task created to a certain person! Even more powerful is the ability to insert data from Calendly into text fields dynamically. This means you can have custom generated titles, descriptions, or more!
