Building an all-new data connector is challenging, especially when you are already overloaded with managing & maintaining your existing custom data pipelines. To fulfill your business team’s ad-hoc ClickUp to Snowflake connection request, you’ll have to invest a significant portion of your engineering bandwidth.

We know you are short on time & need a quick way out. This can be a walk in the park if you just need to download and upload a couple of CSV files. Or you could directly opt for an automated tool that fully handles complex transformations and frequent data integrations for you.

Either way, with this article’s stepwise guide to connecting ClickUp to Snowflake effectively, you can set all your worries aside and quickly deliver time-sensitive campaign data to your data-hungry business teams in 7 nifty minutes.

How to Connect ClickUp to Snowflake?

Exporting Data as CSV Files

ClickUp allows you to export data from all its features in CSV files. Let’s see how you can get started with ClickUp to Snowflake integration and download your CSV files from all the ClickUp locations:

ClickUp Workspace Data

  • Step 1: Go to the Settings page and click Import/Export in your sidebar on the left. 
  • Step 2: Click the Start Export button to download all your workspace data as CSV files.

List and Table View Data

  • Step 1: Go to the List or Table you want to export and click the ellipsis … menu present in the upper-right corner. 
  • Step 2: Click the Export View option. Choose the elements you want to export and CSV as the file format.

Loading CSV files in Snowflake

  • Step 1: Log in to your Snowflake Account and select the database where you want to upload the files. Use the Create or Replace FILE FORMAT command to create a named file format for CSV. 
use database test_db;
create or replace file format new_csv_format
  type = csv
  field_delimiter = ','
  skip_header = 1
  null_if = ('NULL', 'null')
  empty_field_as_null = true
  compression = gzip;
  • Step 2: Assuming no destination table exists, use the create or replace table command to create the new table.
CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE test_students (
student_ID number,
First_Name varchar(25),
Last_Name varchar(25),
Admission_Date DATE
);
  • Step 3: Now, load the CSV file into the staging area of Snowflake using the PUT command.
put file://D:\test_stud.csv @test_db.PUBLIC.%test_students;
Step 5: Load the data into your target table using the COPY INTO command.  
copy into test_students
from @%test_students
file_format = (format_name = 'new_csv_format' , error_on_column_count_mismatch=false)
pattern = '.*test_stud.csv.gz'
on_error = 'skip_file';

This 4 step hands-on approach is a great way to effectively replicate data from ClickUp to Snowflake using CSV files and SQL Queries. It is optimal for the following scenarios:

Step 5: Load the data into your target table using the COPY INTO command.  

copy into test_students

from @%test_students

file_format = (format_name = ‘new_csv_format’ , error_on_column_count_mismatch=false)

pattern = ‘.*test_stud.csv.gz’

on_error = ‘skip_file’;

This 5 step hands-on approach is a great way to effectively replicate data from ClickUp to Snowflake using CSV files and SQL Queries. It is optimal for the following scenarios:

  • One-Time Data Replication: When your business teams need this ClickUp data only quarterly, yearly, or just this one time, then the manual effort & time is justified.
  • No Data Transformation Required: This approach has limited options in terms of data transformation. Hence, it is ideal if the data in your spreadsheets is clean, standardized, and present in an analysis-ready form.
  • Less Number of Files: Downloading & writing SQL queries to upload several CSV files is a time-intensive job. It can be especially tedious if you need to generate a 360 view of the business and merge spreadsheets containing data from multiple departments across the firm.   

Though, if you want to leverage the power of complete data from multiple sources apart from ClickUp, manually downloading & transforming the files doesn’t make sense. You would need to develop custom connectors and manage the data pipeline always to ensure a no data loss transfer. It also includes you continuously monitoring for any updates on the connector and being on-call to fix pipeline issues anytime. With most of the raw data being unclean and in multiple formats, setting up transformations for all these sources is another challenge. 

A great alternative is to try out a No-code tool that completely automates the ClickUp to Snowflake ETL/ELT process and manages it for you. 

Automate the Data Replication process using a No-Code Tool

Using manual scripts and custom code to replicate data from ClickUp to Snowflake is cumbersome. Frequent breakages, pipeline errors, and lack of data flow monitoring make scaling such a system a nightmare.

An automated tool is an efficient and economical choice that takes away months of manual work. It has the following benefits:

  • Allows you to focus on core engineering objectives while your business teams can jump on to reporting without any delays or data dependency on you.
  • Your business teams can effortlessly enrich, filter, aggregate, and segment raw ClickUp data with just a few clicks.
  • The beginner-friendly UI saves the engineering teams’ bandwidth from tedious data preparation tasks.

For instance, here’s how Hevo, a cloud-based ETL tool, makes ClickUp to Snowflake data replication ridiculously easy:

  • Step 1: To replicate data from ClickUp to Snowflake, you can first configure ClickUp as a source.
