This view is where you'll find ClickUp's powerful, drag-and-drop interface containing active tasks in your workflow. Board View is the go-to view for agile teams, but every user can utilize the convenience offered in this view. Check out what makes ClickUp's Board View unique:


If you've used Trello, been part of an agile team, or even used a whiteboard to organize tasks, you know the value of a good board.

  • Visualize work
  • Limit the amount of work in progress
  • Manage your team's workflow
  • Continuously improve your process

ClickUp expands functionality to boards by allowing you to delegate tasks, set due dates, and view subtasks' statuses. Additionally, instead of arbitrary and overwhelming column names, ClickUp's columns are simply the statuses associated with each task. 


Custom Statuses

The true strength of ClickUp's Board View is found with accurate statuses for each step in your tasks' life cycle. With custom statuses set, each column is a stage in your workflow and each row is a task that can be manipulated with ease. 

Simple Statuses

Prefer the simple open or closed tasks? Board view with simple statuses fixes a Project's Lists as columns the on your board. This allows you to make use of drag and drop functionality without any unnecessary clutter. 

Handy Actions
