Views in ClickUp

Views are the secret sauce in ClickUp! 

Each view provides a unique perspective on your work: visualize tasks on a List, Board, or Calendar; see their interconnectedness on Gantt view; or even take a look at how work is distributed among team members in Team view or Workload view.

Each view is grouped by type. For example, if you have multiple List views in one Folder, all the List views are in one tab. This allows teams with a large number of views to quickly find what they want without searching through an endless row of views, simply click the container to expand and select your view.

Pin the views you use most for quick access! You can drag and drop pinned views to reorder them.

If you no longer need a view, you can delete it. Deleting views other than Docs and Whiteboards is a permanent action. Docs and Whiteboards can be restored from Trash up to 30 days after you delete them.

Widgets were renamed to cards on March 9th, 2023.

Task views

Task views are different ways of viewing tasks. 

They give you completely unique views to visualize your tasks. With different ways of grouping, sorting, and filtering, you get complete control of how you see your tasks. 

Plus, you can save your views for everyone else to see!

List view:
The most common way to easily manage and prioritize your tasks!

List view is a required task view provided for every Space, Folder, and List in ClickUp. It's the most flexible view in terms of grouping, sorting, and filtering. 

Board view:
Board view is the go-to view for agile teams, but every user can utilize the convenience offered!

This view lets you visualize tasks by status in a pipeline for drag-and-drop usability. This allows you to easily move tasks through your workflow.

Calendar view:
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 resource management. Sync your Google Calendar and more!

Team view:
Team view gives you insight into what people are working on, what they have done, and who needs more tasks or has too many.

This is great for project managers to keep their team on track!

Gantt view:
We heard you! We built our own beautiful Gantt view so you can plan out projects, manage time spent, and dictate deadlines. You can even track Milestones and export your Gantt as a PDF!

Activity view:
Wonder what activity is going on in a List, Folder, or Space? Add an Activity view anywhere in your Workspace to get an aggregated view of all activity across that location. Filter for people and type to get granular with the activity you see.

Timeline view:
Visualize your schedule linearly with flexible organization - perfect for things like roadmaps, planning, and resource management! Easily group by assignee to see tasks per person and show how booked a person is each day. Group by priority to see tasks overlapping and quickly slide things around. You can even group tasks by tags, custom fields, and more!

Workload view:
Toggle on this ClickApp for your entire Workspace to visualize team capacity and manage resources. Set capacity for each person so everyone knows exactly what they're working on. Quickly see overburdened staff and re-allocate to those showing unused capacity.

Mind Maps:
Visualize your Workspace hierarchy or create your own free-form Mind Map for planning and organizing projects, ideas, or anything you can imagine. Link tasks between any List and create, edit, and delete tasks (and subtasks) right from your view!

Tip: Check out our new Mind Map feature in Whiteboards!

Table view:
In Table view, every row is the same height, every field is a column, and by default, there is no separation by List or status. Overall, Table view offers a more condensed view - great for analyzing a ton of information at once.

Map view:
Looking for your next job location, real estate listing, or delivery address of an upcoming task? Coupled with the Location Custom Field, Map view allows you to clearly see where your tasks are located! Pins can be customized to display the color of the task status, priority, or even a custom dropdown field.

Page views

Page views let you use additional resources alongside your tasks. Here we'll discuss each type of page view.

Whiteboards view:

Whiteboards are collaborative work areas you can add at the Everything, Space, Folder, or List level as views. 

Chat view:
Chat views are where you'll keep in touch about items unrelated to a specific task. These give you all the same power of attachments, notifications, unfurled task links, and more with the extra power of adding as many as you like to any location in ClickUp! Also available as a Dashboard card!

Doc view:
Create, collaborate, and keep all of your work in one place by creating wikis and docs for whatever you're working on.

Each Doc view has rich editing and an unlimited number of pages leading to endless possibilities for you to create! 

Embed view:
Share interactive items or content from other platforms right within ClickUp! 

All you need to do is paste a trusted URL or HTML link, and we'll automatically prompt you to embed! Use this to streamline your use of popular internet tools like Twitter, YouTube, Google Calendars, and more!

Form view:
Streamline your intake process with Form view! Build unlimited Forms to collect information and automatically create tasks in ClickUp.

The quickest way to add a Form view is from the Sidebar. This will create a new List called Form and set the Form as the default view.

Drag-and-drop fields to quickly create a Form and start gathering data. Easily share your forms with anyone by copying the direct link or embed code to insert the Form directly into your website!
