Docs | Synced Blocks / Text Mirroring
Synced blocks enclose any section of text/images/etc. that can then be copied elsewhere and can be edited in multiple locations and it updates everywhere.
For example, if I write out a goal that I want to keep in front of me, I can add it to all relevant docs and task descriptions and if I make changes to it, it'll update everywhere else as well.

Hey all! Just wanted to provide an update that we will be working on this! I'll keep you posted on the progress.
Justin Hunter: awesome!!! please do not limit this functionality to the docs area ;)
Justin Hunter: Fantastic! Thank you!
Justin Hunter: can you confirm if this will be limited to docs? Or if it's (hopefully) part of a larger 'universal blocks' idea??
Stephanie Henry: Yep! The idea is to apply sync blocks to all areas where the editor powers content: Docs, Tasks, Comments, Notepad, etc. I'll be sure to update everyone on this as we begin work, though!

Justin Hunter: Will this also apply to whole page (+ sub pages)?
Florian de Vries: The current plan/design allows you to make a whole page or subpage a sync block. You could then use it anywhere else.
Florian de Vries
Justin Hunter: Sounds great! I'm really looking forward to this feature!

Ability to create “synced blocks” in docs
Notion allows you to include a block of text from one document into another, with the text in all locations being updated when edited.
It’s great for re-using set pieces text, eg “mission statement” in various company documents, and ensuring it is up to date in all locations.
Yeah even Microsoft is doing this now with Loop. Would be great to have it in ClickUp as well. Ideally in comments, chats, etc. too! Single source of truth that's seamlessly everywhere without having to link to it is a game-changer for collab.

+1 yes please, I used it a lot in Notion and it's not in ClickUp :-(
A must have feature if click docs wants to stay relevant for users note app
Yes please, would save us from creating weird hacks to make it partially work across multiple places.
This is crucial to our workflow. Please implement!
Coming from Notion here - will probably be returning because of this.
This would be a game changer for documenting projects, and feature requirements
