Teams in ClickUp should not be seen as teams in a traditional sense. ClickUp teams help group businesses into teams such as finance, marketing, growth, etc. This tool summarises a business using the word “Teams”. This is actually every department within a business. Spaces, on the other hand, are where different business departments operate independently. All spaces belong to the same team. A business team may comprise a number of spaces.
Businesses using ClickUp to run their entire business may likely have separate spaces for quality assurance, marketing, and development. Several businesses may have just a space in their team. Projects in ClickUp are more for grouping projects rather than projects themselves. Lists coordinate a few tasks that help businesses move towards finishing said list.
The idea of this whole list may seem confusing by just reading articles about it, but it makes a whole lot of sense when you play with the tool. Tasks are steps in a project that pushes businesses to finish the associated project once they are completed. This tool uses the OKR in setting and achieving goals. Goals are broken down into targets, which are necessarily measurable parameters in a business. If a business wants to set a goal for generating more leads, they could set a number of targets that will help them reach that goal.
