Create and edit Spaces

Spaces make up the highest organizational level of your Workspace and hold all of your Folders and Lists.

Some settings, like ClickApps, are implemented at the Space level. 

Other settings, like statuses, privacy, and Custom Fields, can be set at the Space level, but are overridden and further customized at levels below the Space. By default, all Folders and Lists inherit settings from their parent Spaces. 

The settings you choose when creating a Space can be changed anytime.

What you'll need

  • Spaces are included in all ClickUp plans.
    • Workspaces on the Free Forever Plan have access to 5 Spaces.
    • Workspaces on the Unlimited Plan and above have access to unlimited Spaces.
  • Guests cannot create, edit, or view Spaces.
  • On the Enterprise Plan, you can share Spaces with Teams.

Each time you create a new Space, you have the option to start from scratch or copy existing statuses, views, Automations, and Custom Fields from any other Space.
