Since this is marked complete, and it is not, a new request has been created here:
If you are interested in this feature, please go there and vote.
I don't think it is fully completed.
User should be able to open ANY task and Not only recently loaded tasks.
For that a Local copy of Full Database having All tasks should be used.
Please mark this as not complete. Take it back - I should have said "Limited" progress has been made. I can now look at my tasks offline, but I cannot edit anything, even for updating later when reconnected. So If I am offline, I can look at my tasks, but if I am on a six hour flight and complete a few of my tasks, I need to write them down on a piece of paper so I can mark them as complete later.
Zeb - Progress has been made, but as far as I can tell, you are not done and this is not complete. It looks like the desktop app will bring up your tasks when launched offline and the iOS app will do the same. However, the website will not load if there is no internet connection, so it needs to be opened before you lose a connection. Not good.
Your description of how this feature works in the article is also very unclear - you need to update it so that it reflects the user experience.
@Zeb: cool this is complete? Any announcement details to refer to?
@Zeb Northbooks: Yep! https://docs.clickup.com/en/articles/3161134-offline-mode
@Zeb: zeb to zeb messaging is amazing!
@Zeb Northbooks: Inception!
@Zeb: this is *not* complete. Or at least, if this is what you consider "complete" then I need to give up on Clickup and commit to an alternative. At the moment *some* pre-designated tasks are available to *view* offline. We can't edit tasks offline at all. This is totally inadequate. A fully functional offline mode, with a complete syncing copy of the database, is desperately needed. This has been standard with other PIM type software since the 90s!
@Zeb: I think you mean in-zeb-tion.
I'll see myself out.
@Smokie Lee: 😂
Of course, hugely important! And for android!!!
I really think the current way working offline works needs to be improved, and pretty drastically.
I was on a 2 hour train ride over the weekend, wanted to work on some tasks using ClickUp, but I couldn't, because the train's WiFi was terrible. I could not access any tasks, I could not create new tasks, I could not add to tasks.
The idea of opening tasks in advance, or docking them, is very limited in practical application. I work 99% on a desktop. On the road, I use a laptop. It will almost never occur to me to load up ClickUp on my laptop, and open any task I might want to interact with. Further, I simply won't know all the tasks I want to interact with. Am I meant to open or dock every single task I have just in case I work on it?
More than that, I could not create tasks offline. Once ClickUp reconnected, all the tasks I made disappeared, and I had to make them all over again.
While I appreciate the forward movement in this area, I really think ClickUp needs as full an offline access capability as possible to really be useful as a full task-management system. I could deal with not having access to files and images, but tasks, and any text within them is an absolute must, as is task creation, manipulation and interaction, which syncs when back online.
I understand this might not be possible in a web browser, but using the ClickUp desktop app should definitely have this functionality. Otherwise, what is the point of a desktop application?
@Guy Mannerings: Hey there, Guy! I'm sorry to hear that the current offline functionality was not what you were looking for. We are certainly planning on adding more to Offline mode in the future, and I really appreciate your feedback. As for your new tasks not being created when you were back online, did you see the sync popup at the bottom left of your screen? When you came online, did that popup indicate that these tasks were synced? I'd love to get this resolved!
I don't think it is fully completed.
@GS: I agree. Only being able to open recently-loaded tasks is not that helpful. We really need offline access to all tasks, even if it is just their basic text contents and not things such as pictures and attachments.
I used the Desktop app and would have thought this would be a benefit of using it, as it can store a database on your computer.
@GS: Also we need to be able to EDIT tasks offline. Not just view them!
This has been completed in 2.0, https://docs.clickup.com/en/articles/3161134-offline-mode
@Zeb: Sorry, I didn't specify. On android. My phone is my go to laptop when am not at my desk. Cheers.
@Rosalia Bolo: Coming soon!
@Zeb: Like many other people have said, I don't think this feature request has been completed. You can't open any task you like, can't add subtasks and can't even view newly added tasks in their lists.
What has been implemented is more of a cache than an offline mode. The only situation where I can think the current implementation is useful is when using an intermittent internet connection. Anything less than that and ClickUp is pretty much unusable offline.
@Zeb: This isn't completed. From that post it appears that you can (a) open *some* tasks offline (is there any way to know for sure in advance which ones?), and
(b) create new tasks offline (which will probably be synced - is this robust against eg closing the browser?)
But that you can't edit existing tasks!!!!! This is *not* a credible offline mode. It may be all that's achievable in a web app - which is fine, and which is why we have a desktop app. The desktop app is currently, so far as I can tell, just a wrapper around a web browser, but it doesn't have to be that way....
Absolutely a necessity. Don't know much about the rest of the world but am not always plugged to the internet in E.G. It is either at home or work. Period.
