Task Types and Custom Field Manager

One of the most exciting features of ClickUp 3.0 is the introduction of Task Types. Task Types allow you to manage different project types beyond regular tasks, providing a more granular approach to organizing your work.

Use task types when “task” doesn’t fit – in your CRM (lead or person task type), in your hiring list (candidate task type), in your inventory tracker (item task type), etc. This means that you can use ClickUp for more than just keeping track of tasks. Use it as a lightweight CRM, an applicant tracker, an inventory database, to manage client work, and more.

It’s easy to assign task types in bulk to update already existing tasks. Set a default task type for a list to ensure all newly created tasks use that task type. Plus, you can use more than one task type in a list, so you can have a candidate task type with a tasks task type for your subtasks. Use task types in filters, grouping, and automations, which makes them very powerful.

In addition, the Custom Field Manager empowers you to view and manage your custom fields in one place. Add, edit, reuse and remove custom fields with this easy to use feature. View all your custom fields, filter to see certain ones, and quickly edit them. Plus, add descriptions so that when your team members hover over a custom field they’ll see a brief message explaining how to use it.

Advanced capabilities such as merging, converting, and moving custom fields are available in the higher plans.
