ClickUp automations save me so much time. No need to hook anything up to Make or Zapier.
I conjure a workflow in my head and 9 times out of 10, I’m able to build it inside ClickUp.
This is a ClickUp automation example that uses templates. It helps speed up the process of creating blog posts.
When I make a new content creation task, I can tag it as a blog, video, newsletter, etc.
When a task is tagged as a blog, ClickUp automations kick in and add all the subtasks for me.
These are split between creation and publishing. Each subtask also has its own checklist.
A real timesaver is that links to useful websites I use are included in the checklists.
I ran this blog post through Hemingway and it highlighted a few problem areas. If I didn’t have my automation, I might have forgotten to do this step.
Saving time while also writing better content is the goal. And ClickUp automations is the feature that helps me do this.
