No more notification overload for you! We've reimagined what notifications should be in project management - and ClickUp is the only app to give you complete control over every notification you receive on every platform. 

Granular Notifications

You decide which actions in ClickUp trigger notifications and on which platform! 

Notifications are either on (purple), off (grey), or required (asterisk). Required notifications ensure important activity isn't lost by any member of your team, and ensures some consistency within the app. 

Important Note: Granular notification preferences are set at the user level. All team members will need to proceed to their Settings page to determine which notifications they want to receive.

Channels

  • Email - Choose what actions to receive emails for. Send yourself a daily Due Dates summary email at a specific time of the day. A great way to know what's going to be important in the day ahead
  • Mobile - Choose what sends push notifications to your Android, iOS, or Fire device - with or without sound!
  • Web App - Many items here are required to prevent the loss of accountability, but there's still plenty of customization to be made. 
  • Browser - Desktop/browser notifications can be enabled or disabled for any activity in ClickUp

New Tasks and Subtasks

By default ClickUp won't notify you of new tasks, however, you're able to make a few decisions here. 

  • Be notified of new tasks
  • Go all-out and be added as a watcher for every new task

Another handy option is being added as a watcher of parent tasks you're watching. After all, there's a reason you're watching the parent task right? 

Smart Notifications

ClickUp knows when you're active in the app and can hold notifications from alerting you through other platforms (mobile and email) for a custom period of time. This gives you time to clear updates at your own pace without any notification overload.

Any notifications you clear in-app, will not be sent to your devices. 

Daily Digest

Receive a daily email with tasks due today, tomorrow, and all overdue tasks. You can choose what time you want the email sent! 

We'll send you an email only when you have tasks due today, tomorrow, or tasks that are overdue within the past 3 days. On weekends, we'll only send you emails if you have tasks due on the weekend. 

Scheduled Notifications and Reminders

  • Due Date before overdue reminder: Be reminded before your task is due! You can choose to be reminded from 5 minutes up to 3 days before your task is due!
  • Due Date after overdue reminder: Your safety net! You can be notified up from 5 minutes up to 3 days after your unfinished task goes overdue. 
  • Start Date before start reminder: Be reminded before your task is scheduled to start! You can choose to be reminded from 5 minutes up to 3 days before your task starts!

You may also select whether to receive the following notifications for all tasks you're watching or just the one's you're assigned to.
