The Cons or Disadvantages of Clickup
There are plenty of features to the point where you may be asking yourself as to what’s the point of having so many features. During setup itself you start seeing all of them. THe learning curve can be a bit too high andyou may find yourself asking how to use all these features.
There are also too many customization options.
THe disadvantage is if you want the tool to perform as you like you need to customize in a lot of things. That will result in optimal running. You cannot simply choose between done or not done.
The calendar is not intuitive meaning you need to click a lot of butotns to get a simple thing done. The UOI also needs to be improved.
The colors are faint and text size miniscule.
Tasks cannot be sent directly to gmail filters either. That’s one reason Clikup developers are working hard on. You can send tasks from Gmail filters to clickup directly by using a third party device.
