Two-way integration is a perfect solution for enhancing team alignment around priorities. It lets anybody see how important are the tasks in your ClickUp backlog and what is the best order of completing them.

NOTE! To sync Ducalis task ranking, you must have unlimited use of Custom
Fields in ClickUp, which is not available in the Forever Free plan.

To turn the sync on, you need to create 2 custom fields in ClickUp where Ducalis will write its ranking.

You need to have a text field called 'Priority 🚀 Ducalis' and a text field called 'Alignment 🚀 Ducalis.' The emoji in your fields' names depends on your Ducalis board emoji. You can change it before you create the fields if you want another one.

There are two ways to add the fields:

  • add them to the whole workspace making them available in every task

  • add them to one or a few spaces only.

Here we'll focus on how to create fields for a separate space. If you want to add them to the whole workspace making them available in every task, please read this article.

To add fields to a separate space:

1. Click three dots next to the space name to open its settings.

2. In the menu, click Custom Fields.

3. Click New Custom Field.

4. Choose Text.

5. Copy the name for the field you're creating from your board setting in Ducalis.

6. Paste the name in ClickUp Custom Field name.

7. Click the Pin icon and click Create.

8. Create the second field and set it up the same way.

9. When both fields are ready, Click Refresh in the Ducalis board settings and turn the sync on.

Priority ranking will be visible inside any task in the space you've set.

The Alignment link leads to the teammates' estimation scatter analysis.

The sync happens automatically every planning day, but you can run it manually anytime by clicking Sync Scores Now in the settings.

You can add these fields to other spaces if needed, by choosing them from existing fields.
