So far, we have been using Asana to manage activities and tasks. Asana has a simple but sophisticated home page, shortened home, where you can customize the division of tasks. I divide the daily tasks according to urgency, periodicity and so on (see attached). This feature is really missing me here in ClickUp. Please, focus the development on. Visual features that support getting things done. Visual features are nice to have; however, ClickUp is a productivity tool.
When I view "My Work" on my Home screen, it makes more sense to me that if any of my tasks are on the Overdue list that they should appear before the Today list to show the proper sense of urgency. I want to take of my overdue tasks before anything else. If I have enough items in my Today list, I won't even see the Overdue list until I start checking off some of my Today tasks.
Either having the ability to reorder the My Work lists or even if it is just another toggle option in Preferences, I would like to see Overdue listed first on my screen.

NEW** Modernized Dashboard
I feel that the side panel can be a bit crowded and overwhelming sometimes, with a cleaner interface option, it seems this would perform a lot better for our team. Clickup is more advanced than a competitor I found, so I'm sticking with Clickup. HOWEVER - I would love if Clickup added on to the Glassmorphism trend and a user dashboard for each employee to view their current tasks, tasks coming due, and be able to customize their personable dashboard. I've included a screenshot below so you can see a great idea to improve the Clickup experience and surpass your competitors.
Hey Zach - ClickUp . New Home from LevelUp looks good so far.
I had a few thoughts for the Home screen after watching.
- One thing that comes to mind is that I would also like to be able to see "My Focus" tasks from multiple projects separately from each other.
Right now, it looks like they would have to go on the same list - "My Focus". But I would really like them to be on separate lists that I can name myself.
So I could have a "My Focus - Project 1" card, a "My Focus - Project 2" card, a "My Focus - Project 3" card, etc. (And also be able to name them what I want.)
That way, I can keep track of/see certain items from different projects on the home screen and keep them separate in my mind.
I work with projects that are wildly different from each other, so seeing them in the same list is not useful for keeping the mind clutter-free and focused.
- One other thing is it would be great to be able to add Folders and Views to "My Focus".
This because sometimes an entire Project is my focus, not a particular task. So being able to keep it top-of-mind and easily accessible would be great.
The new "Overview" page shown in LevelUp would be a good candidate to be able to go in to this "My Focus" area.
- Lastly, it would be great to be able to customize what is shown on the agenda - so which tasks are pulled in from which locations - and preferably be able to have multiple agenda cards.
The reason for this is I really want to have a generic Timetable of my day shown (akin to a school timetable), which just gives me high-level topics to work on between particular times, but not particular tasks. So between 1-3 I work on area A, between 3-5 I work on area B, etc.
But then also have another card for actual items that are happening today at a particular time.
I think it would be super cool to have a welcome dashboard for each team member like this and be able to show the team what they should be working on for the day and and also improve the kanban feature. More customization, a more personable experience.

Lily Martinez: Thanks for the mention here! Just dug into that tool pretty heavily and found some great ideas!
Zach - ClickUp: Thanks for the response! Super excited for 3.0. You guys are awesome.
To quote myself from below, but still 100% valid:
You can't fit everyone's needs, so instead of anticipating too much, please make
Home a flexible Dashboard (or better multiple with tabs, e.g. per team or topic) and a clever defaults.
You can't fit everyone's needs, but you can provide the tools for the user to build / customize it. That's what ClickUp is great at with its flexible structure.
Home currently is too oppinionated and inflexible, change that by improving Dashboards, Dashboard Widgets, Dashboard Templates and Dashboards filters and use that for Home.
Don't reinvent the wheel. It costs more time and confuses users. Otherwise the next question at Canny will be, "why can't I use Dashboard widget X on Home" or vice versa... One clever, flexible solution, that's the ClickUp way :)
Build better and more flexible dashboard widgets and improve dashboards. Allow multiple dashboard tabs as home and make people happy
(and save a lot of developer time for other tasks) ;)

Julian Pustkuchen: Thanks Julian, this is a great note and definitely something we're talking about as a team!
I couple of things:
I have never needed my subtasks to carry the same status as the parent task. I would really love to be able to just mark them as done instead of having to open the list of parent statuses to select complete. Can you make subtasks NOT adopt the parent statuses?
Also, I would love the ability to be able to add tags from the home screen without having to open the task.
I love how you can hover over the task description icon to be able to quickly see the description content, but I would also love the ability to be able to update those notes without having to open the task.
It would be very helpful to be able to quickly create tasks in some sort of inbox and then be able to decide what folder they go in later. Sometimes, I need to be able to quickly add tasks and add notes, etc which I can't do with the reminders function. I love the simplicity of reminders, but sometimes I need more than that on that go but don't want to have to make a decisions about task locations, etc which trying to just offload what's in my head.
Would be cool to hide Home completely and give the user an ability to decide where Clickup loads once opened. Example: After opening the app, the user ends in the sprint task list.
