Positioning of ClickUp as personal todo app
I have been looking for 'The' to do app and I stumbled upon ClickUp when I searched on Todoist - I have tried a few for a period of time but none was really 'The' app. To start with I was using Awesome Note (paid), Wunderlist, Microsoft Todo, Google Keep and finally ClickUp. My requirement was rather simple: - I need a cross device app (which is the reason why I switched from Awesome Note) - Synchronization consistency across device (iOS Google Keep failed big time) - Sub-list (expanded under a main list) and sub-task - Synchronization with Google Calendar - Custom recurring tasks (repeat every x day/weeks/months) Google Keep was promising but the support was non-existence - to which I'm pleasantly happy with what I have been seeing from ClickUp. This coupled with the fact you guys listen to users, to me is the best selling point seriously. Another feature I really like is the ability to change due date upon close instead of piling up all the closed repeating tasks. Ok, now come to some of my wish list. I am a to-do mobile app user so ClickUp maybe sort of an overkilled app, but I find that ClickUp have a strong business case and ecosystem if you start to position also as a personal to-do mobile app (competing against Wunderlist/Todo, Google Keep etc.) - Team default assignment is set to self automatically, currently I have set my ClickUp desktop as personal team layout so that is okay. However on mobile app it is still not assigned to anyone and I need an additional 2 clicks (UX consistency) - There is no badge showing on the mobile app for overdue tasks (consider this very important feature to have) - Ability to sort by priority/due date on mobile - Ability to set recurring tasks on mobile - Ability to have proxy set up on desktop app according to the IE internet setting, currently it just never load up. - Ability to set reminder/notification a week before due date (while there are currently two other alternatives, one is to set the task with start date but the downside is the calendar view will have quite a few 'rows' blocked up visually; the other is to set on the settings for notifications, but in this case I only wish to set on a particular list, not the entire space). One use case is birthday reminders, I'd like to be reminded a week before contacts' actual birthday. - Ability to set yearly repeat on a particular day of the week (such as 2 weeks before Mother's day) - When setting recurring tasks, the default date should be the due date (currently it is the date I'm editing which made me changing both the due date and recurring date all the time) For personal and mobile app use, perhaps you can consider strip down the activity view and watchers to simplify the UI. That's all from me and I'm happy to be using ClickUp regardless :)
How does ClickUp use ClickUp?
I’m constantly impressed (amazed even?) with ClickUp’s ability to deliver quality, innovative software at such a fast pace. I would love to see a blog post(s) outlining your process (SDLC, project management, team structures, etc.). How does ClickUp use ClickUp? 😃
Stellar effort - thank you
Just a casual thanks to the team for being super receptive and fast at listening to the users on the feature requests. Having previously worked for a large SAAS company I know how just signing off on a feature takes plenty of work and validation. But so far the updates and feature releases are epic. Kudos to you guys. Totally reaffirms moving to Clickup.
ClickUp - Definition of Customer Service
I wanted to take a moment to commend the amazing team at ClickUp for their tremendous customer service, transparency, and dedication to producing an amazing application. The progress over the last several months has been stunning, and I am extremely excited for what the future holds. I also thought it was worth distinguishing ClickUp from Asana in this regard. As a premium member of Asana, what has consistently driven me crazy is (1) the slow rate of development, and more importantly (2) the complete lack of transparency around development and the product roadmap. Thanks to the team at ClickUp for this refreshing change.
What exactly does the canny planned status mean internally to ClickUp?
When a feature or bug gets marked as planned from Canny. What exactly happens internally at ClickUp? Do these task ALWAYS get put on a schedule, or is it more of a status meaning good idea. Or in other words, we will get to this at some point down the road, but who knows when that will be. If it is actually loaded into a tentative schedule, it would be nice to know when the task is expected to move to in progress as a comment to the status change to planned. With the plethora of feature requests on ClickUp now, sometimes it feels like some feature requests marked as planned are locked up in limbo even though I imagine that is not the case.
ClickUp Team is amazing 💜
I just want to say.. not always do you come by a SaaS as awesome and polished as ClickUp.. and even more rarely.. do you come by a team that is so positive, responsive, attentive and in-tune with their community and customer base. You guys literally rock 🚀 and I can truly say, I'm excited about the platform and am thoroughly looking forward to working with you guys!! Cheers 🍻 https://media.giphy.com/media/csVGeuMES3vOtsSZrT/giphy.gif
Is it wrong that I'm more excited about sharing ClickUP than actually being productive?
But seriously though! I've been messing around with productivity software for 10-odd years now, and this is the first time I'm this excited about new software after trialling it properly. I felt this same type of joy the first time I got my task management feet wet with Toodledo and Producteev. I used Nozbe until my projects got big (and I saw their price tag). Trello was grand for a while but I just couldn't stay on top of everything. Even Asana wooed me with its big graphs but couldn't hold my interest. I loved ToDoist for years until I met this attractive ebullient purple young thing. She was young and had flaws but she was so honest about them and so excited to grow I couldn't help but be intrigued. Then she showed me how flexible she was, how intuitively she could be used and how incredible she was at attending to my every little concern, and my little productivity bubble of joy blew wide open. ClickUp team, I don't know how long this honeymoon feeling is going to last, or when the next great solution will come around. But I will say this: Your product is world class, and the warmth, professionalism and capability of your support is monumental. I've found solutions to personal productivity issues in your young app that have been plaguing me for the best part of a decade. ClickUp is the first project management tool I've come across that combines complex functionality with ease of use (and a gorgeous UI) quite so elegantly. I'm sure it's a little weird that I get quite so excited about a simple productivity app. But then again, making project planning for a card-carrying A.D.D. user as enjoyable as it has been thus far is hardly a simple thing, is it 😊
Use of Custom Fields in Free Version
I know I am limited to 100 'uses' of custom fields, but unsure what that means. Also, is there a way to see how many you have used of this and other limited functions. Thanks
Be able to mark holidays and events on my calendar view without it being a task to complete
A part of my marketing team is having events and creating content around specific holidays. It would be great to add events and holidays into the calendar to prepare for and to look back on without it having to be a tasks to cross off. When creating this events and holidays as tasks to use for that specific reason, it ends taking up space on my list view and cluttering my "overdue" section that actually needs attention for actual incomplete. tasks
