Add relationship columns to tasks

Relationship columns (formerly Rollup fields) display task fields from related tasks.

What you'll need

  • Relationship columns (previously called rollup fields) are available on every ClickUp plan.
  • The Relationships ClickApp does not need to be enabled to use Relationships.
  • Everyone, including guests with edit or full permissions, can add and edit relationship columns in task view.

Relationship types

All standard task fields can be added as relationship columns for:

  • Dependency relationships
  • Linked tasks relationships
  • Tasks Custom Field
  • Custom Relationships, including Any task in the Workspace and List to List relationships.

Only List to List relationships support using Custom Fields as relationship columns.

Tasks with one or more relationships will display all relationships in the lower-left corner.

Different categories of relationships are separated into tables, and rollup fields can be added to include relevant details from the related task.

To see relationship columns in Task view:

  1. Open a task that has an active relationship.
  2. To the right of the Activity section, click one of the relationships icons to see tasks with that specific type of relationship (blocking, waiting on, linked, or custom).
    • Alternatively, click one of the relationship types on the left above the task description.
  3. On the right, you can add or edit columns for each relationship table.

If you don't see the Custom Field you're looking for in the column options, you'll need to create a Custom Relationship using the tasks from a specific List option.
