Google Docs to ClickUp setup steps
1. Select Google Docs
Click the Google Docs icon to select it as your source of tasks and events.
2. Connect Google Docs
Note: Google Docs setup requires a two-step process to 1) connect your account, and 2) authorize access to specific Docs.
Grant permission to connect TaskClone to your Google Drive/Docs account. You will authorize access to specific Docs in a later step. Be sure you're authorizing the specific Google Docs account you want to use. When you are returned to TaskClone, click "Next" to continue.
3. Select ClickUp as your destination
Click the ClickUp icon if visible or select ClickUp using search field. Click “Next” button to save and continue.
4. Register your TaskClone Email Address
We send your tasks via email and they require our sending address be registered in their system by adding it as a 'guest' to a specific list. Our setup wizard will display your TaskClone email address which you can copy and paste into their system to complete registration. Learn more
5. Find your ClickUp Email Address
Login to ClickUp in different browser tab, locate and copy the unique email address where ClickUp will receive and process the tasks we send. Learn more.
6. Enter Destination Email for ClickUp
Paste unique email from ClickUp in the Destination Email field that appears in the TaskClone setup wizard. Be sure to remove any bracket, quotation marks or anything else except the email address itself (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
Click Finish button. You're now connected, but there is one more step.
8. Authorize Individual Google Documents
Because Google Docs requires granting access to each specific Doc you want us to process, we've built a simple Google Docs Add-on to make that easy from within Google Docs. Install our Google Docs Add-on just once (see instructions) and then use the add-on whenever you want to grant access to one or more Google Docs (see instructions).
