With ClickUp's client-friendly features, you'll be one step closer to managing your entire business in one project management platform. Check out the tips below to start setting up a CRM directly in your Team!
Setting up the Hierarchy
Create a separate Space called "CRM" to hold all of your client-related tasks. You can make this Space private if needed, and create another Space for your other project management action items.
Use Projects and Lists to organize your clients. This could be as simple as creating a Project called "Client Information", with Lists for each month of the year. You can add to these Lists as you on-board new clients each month.
Add tasks titled with your clients' names, and place relevant details in the tasks' descriptions.
If you don't want to create a whole new Space to manage your CRM, you can just create one CRM Project within your regular project management Space!
Use your Lists as "mini projects" entitled "Leads", "Clients", etc.
Title your tasks with the names of clients and prospective leads, particularly if you intend to use Custom Fields.
Keep in mind that you can make this Project (or its Lists) private if you only want to share it with select members of your Team.
