Interacting with Sunsama specific task information · 0:35

Your associated Sunsama task acts like a worksheet for your ClickUp task. Inside your Sunsama task, you can add notes, time tracking information, subtasks, and comments without messing with your ClickUp task. Use your Sunsama task to track the minutia of the task that your collaborators might not care about inside of ClickUp.

Understanding synced fields · 1:12

Currently there are two "synced" fields between Sunsama and ClickUp. The ClickUp icon at the top of the task page tells you which fields are synchronized. By default:

  • If you change the due date in Sunsama or ClickUp, both the Sunsama task and ClickUp task will show the new due date.
  • If you complete the task in Sunsama or in ClickUp both the Sunsama task and ClickUp task will show as completed.

If you want to configure your sync settings, you can do that from your ClickUp Automations Panel
