    Connecting your calendar & scheduling apps with ClickUp

    Step 1 - Log into the web version of ClickUp

    Step 2 - Click your personal avatar in the bottom left corner


    Step 3 - Select my settings


    Step 4- Select Calendar


    Step 5- Choose between Outlook and Google Calendar

    Note - Connecting to Outlook is a one-way sync meaning that a task from ClickUp will show up automatically in your Outlook calendar but items you add to your Outlook calendar will not show up in ClickUp. For Google Calendar, you can choose to have items moved from Click>Google Calendar, Google Calendar>ClickUp, or both. You want all Google Calendar events to be connected with this Google Calendar integration. It will add all events created as a new task in ClickUp.


    Step 6 - Select Google Account and Calendar, Task location, and task assigned to you


    IFTTT (If This Then That) is a popular automation service that enables users to connect online services and applications together. For example, with IFTTT you can connect your calendar app to ClickUp so that tasks and calendar events added in one automatically show up as a new task in the other. This Google Calendar integration helps users save time by removing the need to switch back and forth from the ClickUp app to Google Calendar.

    What is IFTTT

    IFTTT (If This Then That) is an automation service that enables users to connect different online services and applications together. It works by creating Applets, which are simple connections between two apps and services. These Applets allow users to automate tasks like sending reminders, sharing content across platforms, or triggering other actions based on events. With IFTTT, users can create chains of commands that are triggered when certain conditions are met. For example, a user could set up an Applet where when they tweet something with a specific hashtag it will then add a task to their ClickUp account automatically.

    Ifttt also offers integrations with popular calendars such as Google Calendar and Apple Calendar, allowing users to easily sync their events from one platform to another. With IFTTT, small business owners can save time by connecting various apps without having to manually switch between them. It's free to join so start automating your business today!
