Views Bar

You can use the Views Bar at the top of any Space, Folder, or List to customize the way you view your tasks.

What you'll need

Create a view

Each Space, Folder, and List you create will have a List and Board view by default. You can choose which views are included by default in the default view settings.

To add more views:

  1. Click + View in the Views Bar. 
  2. Optional: You can check the Private view box if you don't want anyone else to access this view or the Pin view box if you want the view to always display in your Views Bar.
  3. Select a view or use the search bar. 
  4. Once the view has been created you can give the view a name and customize it using the Customize menu on the right.

Once a view has been created, right-click the view in the Views Bar to open the View options modal.

Group views by type

You can customize the way your Views Bar is organized by changing the view grouping settings. By default, views will be shown in the order they were created.

To group views based on type:

  1. Click the ellipsis ... icon beside the Space, Folder, or List name. You can do this in the header of the view, or using the Sidebar.
  2. Select More settings, Folder settings, or List settings depending on the location.
  3. Toggle on Group views by type.

You can also access this setting by opening the More... menu in the Views Bar. You'll only see this icon if your Views Bar is full.

If there are multiple views of the same type in your Views Bar, they will be grouped in a single heading. Click the number next to a view's name to see the view group.

  • View options: Access the View options menu.
