I'd like to be able to group tasks in the list and kanban view based on a dropdown field.
Hey Clickup Team! Is this nearly due? Last comments in early December said, 'this month'....?
I am also eagerly awaiting the release of this feature.
I have looked over 20+ apps to get to the following functionality, that i think would give a unique combination of overview and detail in a single view, without finding it. Please give us the possibility to create:
A (meta) Board view where columns represent Spaces/Folders and Trello-like "cards" represent lists.
But unlike in Trello WITH the option to show/hide Tasks (>Sub tasks/Checklists etc) ON the Cards in the same view - rather than zooming in on a Card (List) hiding the board.
This would look similar to a bunch of color coded, tagged lists in Google Keep, but WITH the ability to drag-drop Columns left-right (left = higher priority).
AND drag-drop "Cards"(Lists) up-down within Columns (Up = higher priority). (Dito drag-drop Sub-/Tasks up/down in lists.)
This way the TOP LEFT Card will be highest priority at any time and nearby Columns/Cards will include best candidates for next highest priority. All with highest priority Tasks at the top of each List - visible in the same view letting you quickly prioritize by drag-dropping Columns/Cards in one view.
The ability to see the next level down in hierarchy on each card without switching view AND quickly expand/hide levels all the way down the hierarchy and "zoom" the board from Everything via Spaces to Folders would allow a unique combination of overview and concrete detail.
Bazinga! Rite? :)
OK, the guys over at startinfinity.com now HAVE now built a board view where one can: sort in columns by label, drag drop columns right/left, drag drop "cards" up/dn in columns or between columns (automatically changing label of card), show subtask/checklist on card in board view.
Unfortunately they don't seem to have the needed resources for a project like this. Haven't been able to finish GDrive or GCal integration in over a year. Sooo.. just had on over there for some inspiration yeah? ;)
Just like filtering has all fields (hasn’t it?) ;-) please allow all fields to be used for grouping! If you want to be extra generous, add sub grouping (just like the sort function does) too. Thank you.
Please can you add the option to group by created date, updated date, custom fields etc.
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.
