Most people use Lists in ClickUp to group together related tasks, and often there is information that applies to all those tasks.
List Info gives you a convenient place for details like List description, you can add a List owner, priority, comments, attachments and more!

You can add the following details to any List Info:
Start Dates: Indicate a date to begin working on tasks

List Info and Portfolios
Sections of List Info are highly relevant in Portfolios and Portfolio widgets, which are great for a high-level overview of the progress of tasks by List! In Portfolios, you are able to show List Info details such as start date, due date, priority, assignee, and more!
Who has access to List Info? Can guests see it?
Anyone that has access to a List will also have access to the List Info. This includes guests. List info is not available to people outside of your Workspace, for example, someone viewing the List through a publicly shared link.
Guests will not be able to edit List Info, but if they have full create & edit permissions, they can comment and upload attachments. Additionally, if you hide Time Tracking or Time Estimates from guests, they will not see that information in List Info.

When added as a List watcher, you’ll receive in-app notifications when updates occur in the List Info section (i.e. an attachment or comment is added, priority changed, etc.).
