Display Full Text of Mentioned Tasks Everywhere
The 'Display Full Text of Tasks in Docs' is very nice, just need to apply this when tasks are mentioned in task descriptions and comments as well.
Also, in public view, please can it just show the task title in plain text rather than text saying 'You don't have access to this Task'.

Task names display in full everywhere now!
Eric Wightman: great, very happy that task names are being extended where you've done it!
Unfortunately there are still at least two places where task names don't show in full, so not sure this ticket should be closed:
- Global search
- Task mention search
See attached screenshot for examples. At least in the global search there's plenty of room for the task title to run onto the next line, just like task descriptions already do.
The cutoff of task names in the task mention search is particularly bad because so little of the task name is displayed before it's cutoff. This sometimes makes it quite hard to identify the task you want and I often find it faster to paste in the URL of the task instead of searching for it by name.
Hi Waleed Elaghil, would love if you could provide an update here. Really would help the daily Quality of Life in ClickUp if you could see the full name of linked tasks.
Waleed Elaghil, if you have a moment, wanted to ask if you guys have any further thoughts on this. Again, per Brandon Carl below this appears to be an easy fix. Really hurts my team as we cannot understand the tasks that are mentioned because they are so cut off, unlike in Docs.
Also I created a similar request here:
As there is the same issue with this new feature (which is very nice I might add!).
I appreciate any time you can spend jumping in here with insight as to your guys' thinking here!

Brendan W: Great to see this is in the works, really needed! The Notion feature shows how useful this can be when you can actually see the full name of the task...not to mention when you can see it here in ClickUp in Docs, too!
Also would like to point out that it's useful to have extra info here around the task, like its location or ID at least. Otherwise as your ClickUp instance grows, you can not easily identify what the task is about. Notion does this well too as it highlights where the Pages are in Notion db's:
Waleed Elaghil, Notion now has Backlinks, so catching up you guys, and the display in their entirety, it's discussed nicely in this article:
So I'd say until you guys fix this, Notion just leapfrogged you here!
Please address! I too need this, use @mention of tasks extensively and this really limits us.
Muazam Rafique would love to get your support on this one!
Hey John Jones! Thank you for your feedback! I would love to understand what you think about hovering over a long text to solve for this (as seen in picture). This will help us understand the best way to solve it 🙂
Waleed Elaghil: Thank you Waleed for chiming in here! As I understand, this is the current functionality. It would be much more useful if you could see the full task name when it's embedded. Exactly like Docs handle it right now. When you move the mouse and hover, and get the full task name, you get a lot of other great info like ability to copy the link, etc. What's more, you can also change those attributes without opening a new window, which is terrific, too.
All that said though, there is no substitute for being able to see the full task name while glancing at the Task Description, without the need to move the mouse and hover over the individual mentions. You guys did great with this on Docs and I'd like to simply see the same in Tasks.
Could you have a look at Brandon Carl explanation below that this might be an easy CSS fix? I'm not a developer so I can't vouch for that, but just hoping it's not that hard for you guys to implement.
Waleed Elaghil: Waleed, many thanks to you guys for moving this along, can't wait to see it in practice!

Show full task title in mentions
There are times when truncating task titles makes sense. But for us at least, it's much more common that we'd want the full task title.
An example I'm working on now is attached. Those tasks are what we're working on, and we wanted a reference list for a client call. Now I have to hover over each one to get the full title, while on the call.
So at the least I'd love some sort of option that lets me show the full task title. But really I'd vote for the opposite — an option to truncate, or only truncate in certain rare situations (super long task titles? only when viewed from the inbox?).

Improved display of tasks created/mentioned in Docs
I love being able to create and embed follow up tasks within docs, but I wish I could make the embedded task mentions wider so that they convey the whole task title, or at least most of it. For example, when using ClickUp docs for project meeting notes, I want to turn my list of follow up items at the end into tasks and have those be immediately readable and understandable to collaborators, without them having to hover over the text.
Ideally, I would like to have the due date appear on the embedded task display as well, so that the task mention better captures the "who will do what by when" of project meeting follow up.
Gavin Carvell, here is a great example from Fibery how they are doing it - you can even customize to show assignee, status, etc. Would really love to see this here soon in ClickUp, for all kinds of entities, not just Task -> Task mentions:
Gavin here’s another instance of this!
Yes! Gavin Carvell there are a few more repeats of this across the board, I just pinged both Ivan & Nick hope they get to this. Huge pain point of mine & was psyched to see implementation in docs as hope that its coming to tasks. Also would love to see some customizable attributes you could add in the link:
- task ID
- status spelled out. Not every user on my team knows the status colors.
