ClickUp destination

Send your event data from RudderStack to ClickUp.

ClickUp is a productivity tool that lets you set up project workflows and tasks, and enable smooth cross-team collaboration.

RudderStack supports ClickUp as a destination where you can seamlessly send your event data.

Find the open source transformer code for this destination in the GitHub repository.

Getting started

Before configuring ClickUp as a destination in RudderStack, verify if the source platform is supported by ClickUp by referring to the table below:

To learn more about the difference between cloud mode and device mode in RudderStack, refer to the RudderStack Connection Modes guide.

Once you have confirmed that the source platform supports sending events to ClickUp, follow these steps:

  1. From your RudderStack dashboard, add a source. Then, from the list of destinations, select ClickUp.
  2. Assign a name to the destination and click Continue.

Connection settings

To successfully configure ClickUp as a destination, you will need to configure the following settings:

ClickUp connection settings
  • API Token: Enter your ClickUp API token.
  • List ID: Enter your ClickUp list ID.
For more information on obtaining your ClickUp API token and list ID, refer to the FAQ section below.
  • Mapping to add custom fields while creating a task: Use this setting to map a specific RudderStack event property to a ClickUp Custom Field.
For more information on using this setting, refer to the Adding custom fields section below.
You can provide multiple ClickUp custom fields associated with different lists. However, note that the custom field name must be unique within a list to successfully create a task.
  • Client-side Events Filtering: This setting lets you specify which events should be allowed to flow through to ClickUp.

RudderStack will discard the events not included in the allowlist.


You can use the track calls to create a task in ClickUp.

A sample track call is shown below:

  "Product Viewed", {
    "taskName": "Whole Foods Market",
    "tags": ["plan", "proposal", "marketing"],
    "timeEstimate": 10800000,
    "status": "Proposal",
    "dueDate": "2023-02-25T13:39:21.032Z",
    "startDate": "2022-01-20T13:39:21.032Z",
    "industryKey": "Retail",
    "paymentStatus": "Reject",
    "label": ["Transformer", "QA", "Testing"],
    "location": {
      "lat": -28.016667,
      "lng": 124,
      "formattedAddress": "New Orleans, Louisiana",
    "phone": "+12025550146",
  }, {
    "externalId": [{
        "type": "clickUpListId",
        "id": "199314977",
        "type": "clickUpAssigneeId",
        "id": 61205104,
        "type": "clickUpAssigneeId",
        "id": 61229682,

RudderStack uses the ClickUp task endpoint to create a task within a list.

To successfully create a task, you need to specify the List ID in the dashboard settings. You can also pass the list ID through externalId, as seen in the above sample snippet.

RudderStack gives preference to the list ID passed via externalId over the list ID specified in the dashboard.

Adding assignees to a task

While creating a task, you can assign it to a Team(Workspace) member by specifying a userId. You can also pass multiple userId in an externalId array:

  "context": {
    "externalId": [{
        "type": "clickUpAssigneeId",
        "id": 1232
        "type": "clickUpAssigneeId",
        "id": 88765

Adding custom fields

You can pass the custom fields to ClickUp by specifying the mapping in the Mapping to add custom fields while creating a task dashboard setting:

ClickUp custom field dashboard setting

You can specify the ClickUp Custom Field Name corresponding to the custom field you created in the ClickUp dashboard and the RudderStack Payload Property corresponding to the event property present in the payload.

RudderStack uses the custom field name to retrieve the id using the field endpoint.

Supported custom fields

RudderStack supports specifying the following ClickUp custom fields in the dashboard settings:

Custom FieldNotes
URLMust be in a valid URL format.
EmailMust be in a valid email format.
PhoneMust be a valid phone number with a country code, for example, +1 123 456 7890.

DropdownRudderStack uses the dropdown option name to find the UUID using the field endpoint.
LabelRudderStack will use the label name to find the UUID using the field endpoint.
For more information on the above-mentioned fields, refer to the the ClickUp Custom Fields API reference.

RudderStack currently does not support specifying the following custom fields:

  • Tasks
  • Users
  • Automatic Progress
  • Manual Progress

Note that when sending the custom fields to ClickUp:

  • You can provide multiple custom fields of different ClickUp lists in the dashboard.
  • To successfully create a task, you need to provide a unique custom field name within a list in the custom field mapping.

Supported mapping

The following table lists the mappings between the optional RudderStack properties and the ClickUp properties:

RudderStack propertyClickUp propertyData type
when context.externalId.type = clickUpListId
properties.taskName / message.eventnameString
when context.externalId.type = clickUpAssigneeId
properties.timeEstimatetime_estimateInteger (in ms)
(Only fields mentioned in the dashboard mapping)
