Docs Home: Display documents in a list view with rich attributes
See screenshot for a proposal.
It would actually be ideal to allow the user to select attributes to display.
- columns would need to be sortable & filterable and one should be able to drag them left and right...
- make the numbers clickable meaning hoovering over them or clicking them would provide more details.

For those who didn't see LevelUp yesterday, we're working on a large overhaul of the Docs Home (and adding Dashboards and Whiteboards Hubs). Here's a sneak peak at what we've got in store for you.https://www.loom.com/share/89de42eb27da4d8aa25d7bf7c790ec9b
I hope this is a step in the right direction and thank you for your patience!
I'd rather just have a custom item type for docs (once the custom item types feature launches) so we can organize docs into the already existing and powerful list system feature.
I had a similar request - to organize docs by Folders or Collections. This isn't on the roadmap yet, but in speaking with support I stumbled on to what might even be a better solution.
Within each doc is the ability to add multiple pages. Instead of creating multiple single docs, consider grouping them together as new pages within a single doc. You can make the lead page of that doc a summary or cover page to provide further clarity.
This is a great strategy for things like a project wiki, or tracking information from multiple emails or stake-holders for a project.
I've attached a screenshot to illustrate what I'm describing.
So to summarize, think about docs more like "books" and less single "documents." Add as many sub-pages to a doc as you'd like to give it further context and organization. Each "book" can stand alone or be added to a space in the way I did above with my wiki example.
Freedom to organize the documents like lists - particularly in the sidebar view is critical to visibility and management. The DOC space is not intuitive/helpful and prevents our staff from using it.
All of those attributes would be great as columns that could be added. In the default list view, I'd like to see Doc name and Path (Space/Folder/List/Task/Subtask), and then maybe the date edited or the last editor.
Perhaps radical, but I'd love to see Docs just become an Item Type in ClickUp.
ClickUp deities, is this or any Docs Home improvement slated for the near future?
I'm on the verge of converting the whole I company I work for to ClickUp or Notion. I really want to say ClickUp wins outright but the docs/knowledge/wiki side is pretty underdeveloped (totally understandable considering how beefy everything else is!) and thus I basically have to use Notion + CU.
Thanks for the continued ass-kicking development and updates!
Being able to build a database of docs within a list and use automations for fields in docs would be a killer feature, "Notion On Steroids"! Docs Databases is the only reason why I still continue using Notion, on other aspects Clickup is pretty much killing it. Hopefully Clickup will invest more in the Knowledge Management side in the future. At this point it is not even about editing features as it is already pretty good but more about the docs hierarchy & organization when compared to tools like Notion or Roam.
We are planning improvements to docs and would love your feedback on this feature. We take your feedback to heart! Take the 60 second survey here:
