If subtask is updated, then update the parent task as well - Click Up


So, I am trying to create an automation between ClickUp and Make. For example, if the subtask’s status changed to any active status, then the parent status will be updated automatically to ‘In Progress’.

  • watch tasks (pooling)
  • Edit tasks

and the edit tasks screenshot:

Although, it works fine when I run it on demand, but when I schedule the scenario, I get an error from edit tasks:


Validation failed for 1 parameter(s).

  • Missing value of required parameter ‘task_id’.

In General, what is the best approach to watch the subtask changes such as (date, status,…) and then update its parent task accordingly?



This is happening because the mapping is not correct. You should map the Task ID in the Task ID field instead of Parent.

Hi @Ayrinn,

Yes, you can try the following steps:

1- Get the tasks, or list tasks
2-Create a filter to check if the ‘Parent’ field exists (if it does, then it is not empty, and it is surely a subtask)
3-Next, you get the task data using the previous ‘Parent’ value as a Task ID
4-Finally, you can add more conditions or just update the parent task by adding (Edit a task).

Good Luck!
