What Does "Unfurl" Mean?
Unfurl: When task links are posted in Slack, they'll be instantly enriched with details. Users will also have the ability to perform actions on the task.
How to Enable Slack Unfurl
Step 1: Authorize Slack from the Integrations Page
Note: Only Workspace admins have access to integrations.
Go to the Integrations page in Workspace Settings. Then, click the Slack button. You’ll be redirected to Slack to grant ClickUp access.
Step 2 (Optional): Get your users to Authorize Slack
This allows you to unfurl ClickUp links in:
- Direct messages
- Private channels
If for some reason you miss this message, you can always copy the authorization link directly from the ClickUp Slack integration page and send it to your team:
If you don't perform this step, ClickUp links will only be unfurled in public Slack channels.
