I'd like to be able to group tasks in the list and kanban view based on a dropdown field.
what is the ETA on this? my group cant really embrace Clickup until some of these critical features are implemented.
@Aaron: Hi Aaron! We are planning to get it out this month. It won't be in the next release, but hopefully in the one after 🙂
@Ivan Villa: Will this feature also allow us to view lists in kanban view? We would like to setup each project as a list and then view all lists in kanban view. My engineers like to view each project as a list in Kanban view. Currently I do not see a way to organize Kanban view by grouping lists.
@Aaron: That would probably be https://clickup.canny.io/feature-requests/p/swimlanes-in-board-view
Ability to group tasks by custom fields.
Hi Clickup team, there seem be 100's of requests for variations on the 'group by' functionality; some asking for group by location (folder/list), some by custom field, some by other fields. Best implementations are airtable and zenkit I think for allowing kanban boards to be grouped by any field. At the moment we are duplicating our folder structure into tags, and then using tags to create a board by 'subject' which we use to communicate to management as it's much more visual than a list. But is inefficient, and means we can't really use tags for anything else. This would be a massive productivity boost. When, please, when? Can I suggest that you look to merge all the very-similar requests which might then push this up the priority (just search on 'group by' and you'll see. Thanks, Dominic
Any idea when this will be implemented? Asking, as I am setting up a database now and it would be great to be able to use custom fields to group elements. For now I am using statuses and tags - but this is not great, as I need them for different aspects. I am finding my way around for now, just wondering how deep in those workarounds should I dive in - as if it is just behind the corner, then it would be worth simply waiting. Any clues? @Zach Blodgett . @zeb-1
@Joanne: Hey Joanne! This feature is most likely going to be coming out in Q1 so keep an eye out for it!
I agree, this would be a very useful feature and was one of the first functions I noticed was missing when I started using Clickup.
I'm a new ClickUp user, and it's a MAJOR bummer for me that this isn't currently feasible. Each week I like to plan out my tasks in detail — what I'll do each day, and the order in which I'll do them. I don't want to use due/start dates for this because these aren't true start/due dates, and I want to reserve those fields for actual data. I'm using tags right now to do this, but as someone else has said, it's really cumbersome — especially since the tags aren't universal across the whole platform. To reschedule a task from Monday to Thursday, for example, involves multiple clicks plus some scrolling to find the task after it moves itself to a new group when I add or remove a tag. With grouping by custom field, I could accomplish the same thing in one click. I'm thinking about giving up on this and just going back to planning my week on paper. Like I said — a real bummer.
it's a great idea
+1 folders are essentially a form of a Custom field. Lists are as well. Expand the way labels work in clickup to allow tasks to be visible in multiple lists and folders depending on user preferences. It still is one task but visible in multiple views
