Layout types

Simple Layout

Simple Layout is our recommended style. All your Spaces, Dashboards, Docs, and more are condensed in your Sidebar. Click each tab to expand or minimize it!

Modern Layout

Modern Layout allows you to collapse everything into a narrow Sidebar, giving you even more screen space. With no division between Spaces, Folders, or Lists, it's the easiest way to find your work.

Clean Layout

Clean is a more condensed layout where Home, Favorites, and notifications can all be found to the far-left above your Spaces. The separation between views is also more defined.
