Calendar View

  • Updated

It's about time that someone combines everything you need related to time in one platform! ClickUp's Calendar view is your place for planning, scheduling, and even resource management. 


Just like in List and Board views, it’s up to you how much of the hierarchy you want to see in the Calendar. Choose to view a single List, an entire Folder or Space, or even Everything. Choose how much time you want to see in your Calendar by clicking the Month dropdown to the far right of the tasks search bar:

  • Day: See scheduled tasks for any given day (those with set times, and all-day tasks as well)

  • 4-Days: See a rolling four day period 

  • Week: Visualize a whole week and move tasks around from day to day as needed. 

  • Month: Get a bird’s-eye view of your entire month

Note: Use the arrows (< >) next to the dropdown menu to skip between weeks, months, etc. Anytime you want to jump back to view “today”, just click on “Today”.

Schedule tasks

By default, any task with a start and/or due date will automatically appear on your Calendar. You can drag and drop them around the Calendar to adjust their dates!

To see unscheduled and overdue tasks, click Unscheduled or Overdue on the righthand column of your calendar.

You’ll see a sidebar expand with unscheduled tasks. Now, you can drag and drop them onto the Calendar to schedule them!

You can also see Overdue tasks to easily reschedule tasks that didn’t get done on time. 

Tip: If tasks have time estimates, they'll be scheduled automatically as you drop them.
