Priorities and Time Estimates


Filtering in ClickUp is a great way to hide the tasks you don't need to see by adding one or more of the following filtering options in List View. 

This is the first step in drilling into what exactly we want to see. 

We recommend filtering to only see tasks that have an active status for how you work. For example, if the In Review status isn't actionable for you, you should filter out that status. You can also filter by relevant Custom Fields, tags, assignees, due dates, and more.


You can sort by Priorities and Time Estimates in List View. You'll need to enable the Priorities and Time Estimates ClickApp for the Space

  1. From a List View, click on the Priority column to sort your filtered list of tasks.

  2. Select your sorting option.
    • Sort this Group: sorts the tasks within a particular status group

    • Sort by column: sorts every task within each status by priority.

  3. Click on the Time Estimates column. Select the same sorting option as you did in the previous step. You cannot select both Sort this Group and Sort by column at the same time.

Whichever sorting option you select first will be given priority in grouping for the subsequent sorting options you select. 

When you select the priority sorting option first, and then the time estimates sorting option second, your tasks will be grouped in order of Urgent, High, Normal, then Low priority indicated by the colored

It will then display in order of which tasks take the least amount of time within each priority category.

Saving Filters

Once you have your optimal sorting in place, save your filter.

We recommend saving a Workspace filter using a template to give your Workspace members easy access to the most important tasks in your workflow.
