Collapse Lists

You can save space in your view by collapsing the Lists you're not using. To collapse your Lists, click the caret icon next to the name of any List to hide it from view.

Me Mode

By default, you'll see tasks assigned to everyone in your Workspace in List view. If you want to only see tasks that are assigned to you, activate Me Mode.

Once activated, you will be prompted to choose to include or exclude tasks where you have assigned comments, subtasks, or checklists.

Show subtasks

Customize how you display subtasks by clicking Subtasks in the upper-right corner. There are three different display options:

  • Collapse all: Hide all subtasks from view. Click the subtask icon to expand them in place.

  • Expand all: Expand subtasks directly beneath their parent tasks.

  • As separate tasks: Display subtasks as separate items from their parent tasks. This option also makes subtasks visible in your filtering results. 

Resize columns

To change the size of any column in List view, at the top of the column click and drag either side to the size you want.
