Change your Layout

  • Updated

Try alternative designs that change the size and style of your Workspace layout.

Switch between Simple, Clean, and Modern Layouts.

On Clean and Modern layouts, you can also choose between Compact, Default, and Large text and icon sizes.

Choosing a layout only applies to you personally, but it is reflected for any Workspace you own or join.

What you'll need

  • Every Layout is available on all ClickUp Plans.

  • Guests can use Layouts to customize their experience.

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. 


Switch Layouts

You can easily switch between layouts and decide which you one prefer from the Sidebar settings menu.

You can also change Layout size & style settings by clicking on your avatar in the lower-left corner.

Note: Portfolios and Reporting are only available on Clean and Modern layouts.

To change your Workspace layout:

  1. Hover over the top-right of the Sidebar.

  2. Click the settings cog icon.

  4. Select your preferred layout.

  5. On Clean and Modern Layouts, pick your icon and text size.
