Connect tasks and Docs with pagelinks to create relationships between your content and work.

Relate Docs and pages to each other to create databases of internal knowledge and public solutions.

Mention and link tasks and Docs to reference information and action items.

Viewing Relationships

You can see all the related content and links for the current page or entire Doc from the Relationships & Backlinks section of the right sidebar.

Pagelinks

Relate pages and Docs with other pages, Docs, or tasks in your Workspace.

Pagelinks are great for creating relationships between content and work, without referencing that relationship in the content itself.

Backlinks

ClickUp automatically creates backlinks to keep track of related content when you mention or copy and paste links to tasks and Docs.

External Links

Links to websites outside of ClickUp are shown together under the Relationships menu in the right sidebar.

    • or click on the Relationships & Backlinks icon from the quick access sidebar

  2. Select Current Page or Entire Doc

  3. Search for a task or page by searching for keywords

Accordion

Accordion is the default display option and appears below the title and above the page content. This option is perfect if you have very relevant items and want to display them front and center for your team.

Simply click the arrow icon to expand or contract the Relationship section.

Dialog

Relationship information can be found by hovering above the title of your page and selecting the Relationships button.

This option is more discreet, but still accessible to your team.

Off

Pagelinks only appear in the Relationships tab of the right sidebar.

If you're not relating a page to other Docs or tasks, or if related content is taking up too much space on the screen, you can use this setting to hide them.
