I'd like to be able to group tasks in the list and kanban view based on a dropdown field.
I just deleted all my tags assuming I could group based on custom fields, oh welp..
It never crossed my mind it wouldn't be possible as ClickUp can do almost anything, it seemed such a logical thing to be able to do.
Use case: What I tried to accomplish: I like to use custom fields to create a 'blog category' field for my editorial calendar and group my list view based on 'blog category' as it is less bloated and way more organized than tags ✌️
Yes agree this would be a great step towards ClickUp giving even more flexibility to users ability to view tasks as they see is most useful. I think ClickUp has a great chance to provide a good User Story Map view in the boards, and the fact that we can at least set up columns by tag, and not be limited to just status, is a great start.
In addition to Custom Fields, being able to "turn the board on its side" to have lists as columns would also be very useful I think. With this capability, you wouldn't even need to add custom fields to be able to view lists in a board "matrix," which I think has a lot of benefit.
That would be super, super useful feature to have!
i thought i read somewhere that this is planned already (in the CU2.0 docs??), but it does not show as planned (yet) here?
@Matthias Thoen: Oeh, I hope so 🙏
I wish I could vote twice for this.
I believe it would be an amazing feature if we could Group by Custom Fields in List View. It opens up many possibilities, and with the new "Views" feature it can result in some ultra-fast insight, resource allocation & task assignment!
This feature is something available in a couple of other PM-lite SaaS products, and it's really invaluable.
Right now I'm accomplishing this somewhat with tags but it's clunky and not scalable.
@Smokie Lee: I am on the same boat. Having to assign a tag just to be able to group by custom field is....a bad way to do things.
@Jan Dvořák: I am glad something exists in ClickUp at least. One place where everyone's favorite Kanban SaaS falls far short than other similar services imo.
@Smokie Lee: Yep fudging it with tags - one of the weaknesses with tags is cannot order the stacks which I hope you could address with custom fields
