How to enable Slack Unfurl

Step 1: Authorize Slack from the 'Integrations' page

Note: only team admins have access to integrations. 

Go to the Integrations page in Team Settings; click the button and you’ll be redirected to Slack to grant ClickUp access. 

Step 2 (Optional): Get team to authorize Slack

This allows you to unfurl ClickUp links in:

  1. Direct messages
  2. Private channels

ClickUp makes it easy to do this by automatically posting a message in your Slack team's #general channel with a link to authorize Slack:

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.
