Dashboards overview

  • Updated

Dashboards are the best way to build high-level views of everything going on in your Workspace.

Create a visual representation of work for your entire team. You can track sprints, epics, high-level initiatives, projects, portfolio management, and more!

Customizable widgets are the building blocks of Dashboards. Use common charts, specialized widgets for time tracking and sprints, add rich text blocks, conversations, and embed anything.

You can also view Dashboards using our ClickUp Mobile App.
