Task views are different ways of viewing tasks. 

They give you completely unique layouts 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. 

You'll start with just List view to keep things simple, which is the only default required view, but you can change this at any time! You can even customize how they're built by default.

You can name views, drag and drop them, set them as defaults, and even protect them so no one makes unwanted changes!

How to add a Task View

All views are added through the + in the Views Bar. 

  1. Click the +  
  2. Choose your view  

List View

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. 

  • Group your tasks by status, assignee, priority, tag, or due date and choose the order of these groups
  • Show all subtasks under their parents, by themselves, or just keep them hidden. No more sorting and filtering to see subtasks
  • Add calculations to your columns. Have a column of time estimates? ClickUp will tell you the sum, average, or range of all estimated time in that column
  • Drag and drop columns to re-order your List View
  • Export all tasks in List View or just the ones you've filtered for. We even let you choose the date format in the export file

Board View

  • Group your task columns by status, assignee, priority, tag, or due date and choose the order of these groups
  • Show all subtasks under their parents, by themselves, or just keep them hidden. No more sorting and filtering to see subtasks
  • Show Custom Fields on tasks

Box View

  • Easily see who is overloaded and who needs more tasks
  • Manage workload and distribute action items by dragging and dropping

Calendar View

  • Visualize your tasks in a traditional calendar
  • Sync tasks to Google Calendars
  • Set up a view so that you always come back to the same date
    - Perfect for planning a conference in the future

Gantt View

  • Visualize tasks and dependencies in a timeline 
  • Gantt View is now built around the location you add the view in the hierarchy
    - This is great when you want to see a gantt for a specific Folder or List

Tons more coming very soon!
