Moving Tasks

Create tasks anywhere in your Workspace, then move them to other Lists in your Workspace.

For example, you could build a project plan in a single List, then move tasks into separate Lists to represent each project phase, or move tasks that belong to other teams into their Lists.

What you'll need

  • You can move tasks on any ClickUp Plan.

  • Guests with Full permissions can move tasks between Lists that have been shared with them. 

Move a task from task view

You can move a task you're working on right from task view.

You'll see the task's location in your Workspace displayed as breadcrumbs at the top-left.

  1. From a task:

    • Click the Move task button to the right of the location breadcrumbs.

    • Click the task settings ellipsis ... and select Move.

  2. Select a new Space, Folder, and List.

  3. Your task will move to its new home!
