Intro to Me Mode and the People sidebar

ClickUp views will always show tasks assigned to all Workspace users by default. But with the People sidebar, you can select exactly whose tasks are shown in your current view or Me Mode to only show you the tasks that you're responsible for.

What you'll need

  • The People sidebar and Me Mode are only available on Workspaces with more than one person. 
  • The People sidebar and Me Mode are available on every ClickUp Plan!
  • Guests cannot see tasks assigned to other users when using the People sidebar.
  • The People sidebar and Me Mode cannot be used on the following views:

Use Me Mode

Me Mode allows you to see tasks that are assigned to you, or that need your attention.

Turning on Me Mode applies to every view in your Workspace, but it won't change any views for other people.

When you have Me Mode enabled, creating tasks will automatically assign them to you.

To use Me Mode:

  1. Enable Me Mode:
    • In ClickUp 2.0, in the upper-right corner of your view click Me
    • In ClickUp 3.0, in the upper-right corner of your view click Filter then Me Mode.

Me Mode options

To customize what you see in Me Mode, you can select from the following Me mode options:

  • Comments: Tasks with comments that are assigned to you.
    • Me Mode will not show comments assigned to any teams that you are a part of.
  • Subtasks: Tasks with subtasks assigned to you.
  • Checklists: Tasks with checklist items that are assigned to you.

To select or deselect one of these options:

  • With Me mode enabled, from the Me mode modal select or deselect an option.

In ClickUp 2.0, this modal displays by default. If don't see it, click Me to disable Me Mode then click Me again. Once Me Mode is enabled again, the modal will display.
