What’s In ClickUp 2.3?
ClickUp 3.0 is due to release very soon! Will you be attending their "LevelUp" event in February? You can find out more about it here: LevelUp by ClickUp™
While we all eagerly await version 3.0, we have version 2.3 released this week with some neat upgrades.
- Filters in the automation manager
- More intuitive dashboards
- Speed and performance improvements
- UX enhancements
- New templates
- Bug fixes
Let’s take a quick look at each of them.
Automation Manager Filters
Automations are one of the reasons I moved my project and task management away from Notion and over to ClickUp. They save me a lot of admin time each week, especially with tasks like household chores.
So it’s great to see them getting a little upgrade here. Now, you can filter your automations by:
More Intuitive Dashboards
Dashboards are something that don’t get enough love in my ClickUp workspace. They’ve always been a little buggy with their refresh times. And I find them clunky to use when you have multiple boxes that can be scrolled in.
Saying all that, they’ve now got a new UI, a new widget toolbar, and reliability upgrades. I played around with them before writing this post.
Widgets feel smoother to resize but the refresh bug I submitted a while back still seems to be around. The UI is pleasant but still feels a little awkward when you’re in dark mode.
Speed and Performance Improvements
Speed has never been a word associated with ClickUp. I saw a meme on Reddit that gave
Cmd + R as the most used keyboard shortcut in ClickUp. Those custom fields do not like to update sometimes.
I’ve just moved from a beefy Windows gaming PC over to a MacBook Pro as my main PC. The first thing I did was install the ClickUp app for Mac. As someone who is used to using the web page in Brave on Windows, there was a noticeable speed performance using the Mac app. Is that because of version 2.3 or because I’m on a new computer? I’m not sure. But it’s faster than it used to be!
Activity view is something that used to take forever to load. And I mean forever because sometimes it just wouldn’t load at all. That’s now been “drastically” improved.
ClickUp release UX enhancement every single week! They say they’re “on a mission to build the most loved productivity platform on earth”.
In version 2.3 they’ve done a couple of small changes. One of those is adding a
Date done field as a standard field.
Another is renaming Box View. It’s now called Team View! I never understood why it was called box view. It’s a handy view and tool to use. Hopefully this makes more people aware of it.
Templates. I love them! I make them all the time. I even have a free one available here: Holiday Request ClickUp Template
ClickUp comes with lots of templates built in too. The new ones they’ve added include:
Of course there a bug fixes included. Here’s a rundown of all the bugs they’ve fixed with this release: ClickUp
I enjoy how transparent ClickUp are with their updates. And I can't wait for the release of 3.0! What are you most looking forward to in the next version of ClickUp?
