ClickUp is a project management platform that aims to combine project management and calendars, eliminating the need to use multiple apps to manage your projects and time.

One missing feature of ClickUp is that you can’t 2-way sync ClickUp with Outlook Calendar. If that’s the case, this article will be a lifesaver, as we’ll explain how to two-way sync Outlook with ClickUp.

Why Doesn’t Outlook Calendar Sync With ClickUp?

ClickUp has a 2-way sync feature that allows you to sync your ClickUp tasks with the desired calendar. The sync is 2-way, meaning that tasks created from the ClickUp Calendar View will be reflected in your Calendar and vice versa.

Unfortunately, although you can connect Outlook and Google Calendars to Clickup, this feature is only available for Google Calendars.

With Outlook, you can only sync one way, which means you can view your scheduled ClickUp tasks inside Outlook but not in ClickUp Calendar View.

How To 2-Way Sync Outlook Calendar with ClickUp

Since ClickUp doesn’t natively support 2-way syncing with Outlook, the only way to two-way sync Outlook Calendar with ClickUp is to use a Calendar Sync Tool like OneCal.

Calendar Sync Tools allow you to sync Google Calendar and Outlook Calendars in real-time, allowing you to leverage the Google Calendar to automatically sync the ClickUp Calendar to Outlook as well.

To sync Outlook Calendar with ClickUp, we’ll leverage a Google Calendar, given that ClickUp supports 2-way syncs for Google Calendar.

We’ll connect that Google Calendar to ClickUp and then sync it with your Outlook Calendar using OneCal.

If you don’t have a Google Calendar, you’ll have to sign up for a Google Calendar account, as it’s required to sync it with your Outlook Calendar. The Google Calendar will be connected to ClickUp, as it’s the only way to make a 2-way Calendar Sync possible.

This is how you’d sync Outlook Calendar with ClickUp using OneCal:

  1. Sign Up to OneCal: You can sign up For OneCal for free without needing a credit card. You can Sign Up with Google or by email.
