Redesign the task view
It would be nice if we can customize the task view or if you can redesign the task view. Including the ability to see the task in both full and split screen.
Being a ClickUp user is having to learn about patience. And I'm out of it.
Hey everyone! Im the VP of Product at ClickUp and we thought this group would have good feedback on how we display icons about the task on the task name column in list view. Could you please fill in this survey: https://click-up.typeform.com/to/OaSUnhfA ?
This will help us design the best solution for you! It will take less than 2 minutes to fill in and we will be eternally thankful for your feedback.
Finally the new version 3.0 of click up did not showed any side bar for task ? I was surprised ! Did i missed something ? It seems the topic is on for sooo long, people tried things, were promised actions ? Please enligth me
Chris LATOUR: There is a sidebar option for task view in 3.0.

When you send an email to a task, it becomes totaly visable, incl. alle attachments (also logo's, grrr). Plz make the comment side of a task more like an overview (collapsed) instead of fully visible. I like the feature very mutch but lose my overview when I send multiple emails to the task. Thx
Canny no longer allows comments with links Ruben van Bochove, but please vote on the "Stop Saving Pictures from Email Signatures within Tasks as Attachments"!
Ruben van Bochove: Email threads definitely need a tidy up as well, especially when the email contains a quote of all the previous emails...
It would also be nice if we were able to create different sections for different custom fields (like in smartsuite). If possible also with the option to create 2 columns.
Gives more flexibility in creating a working layout for every branch of businesses. This would go so great with custom task types as well

Hey Ivan Villa it's been exciting to test out the new split screen task view! I'm sure you're already working on this, but I'll toss this in in case helpful. The task window hides several columns on the list you're viewing (rather than resizing the list to fit), and that makes it mostly unusable for me. The value of the split screen for me at least is being able to view/edit the detail of a task while being able to "see the whole board" - i.e. glance back and forth at the the other tasks I have in that list, their tags, their due dates, etc. The overlap makes it so I still need to click and flip between screens like with the classic task view.
Jon Hanover: I was just about to comment the same thing! This would make the sidebar view much more functional for me in most cases. Like having the option to "pin" the sidebar versus having it floating over the main part of the screen? :)
Sarah: Glad I'm not alone! I like that "pin the sidebar" framing
Jon Hanover: I totally agree. If you consider most other task management tools out there eg Asana it does not hide content when the split screen task view is operating. This needs to be fixed in Clickup!
Jon Hanover: yes! this is on our radar and something we plan on improving :)
Jon Hanover: I agree with this as well.
Hello Everyone 👋
We have a quick question regarding comment actions and would appreciate your feedback. If you have a minute to spare, your input would be greatly appreciated!
Ivan Villa: I was about to participate the survey above. But I could not understand what 'On comment' and 'In Comment Menu" meant. What's the difference?
Harry Lee: Hopefully this Gif Helps, The on comment is the actions we show right on the comment, and the in comment menu is the ones we show in that drop down menu
Ivan Villa: Just wanted to say that Less is more.
So Like and Reaction could easily be joined and let it work just as in Slack. If you don't want the extra click you could... one click directly applies :thumbsup: and opens a small popup with alternatives. If you don't need an alternative just ignore the popup or auto close it after 5 seconds without activity in the popup area.
Ivan Villa: I prefer the Like/React at the bottom where it currently is. Many times the comments are very long and would require scrolling back to the top to add a Like/Reaction, very inefficient.
Also, I second the idea that Like/React can continue to be combined.
Brendon McCarthy: I agree. It makes sense to put all the response options together at the bottom (reply, react, like). Maybe they can be at both the top and the bottom though.
Ivan Villa: Chiming in to agree with Brendon and Ben: response actions belong at the bottom of the comment, not in that row of 'on comment' actions. So I'm not going to answer the survey because that'd give a false idea of approval.
Thanks Everyone!!! and to answer some of the comments here, we are considering moving the like and comment actions to the bottom as well.
Ivan Villa: I don't get it. Couldn't you just give us the ability to rearrange them ourselves in-app? Or make it a rollover type thing and they all slide out of the button, or drop down from the rule. not sure why the ellipsis menu is even needed really.
Ben Porter: eeehh I think one locashe.
Ivan Villa: I get a message that says This Maze is No Longer Available.
Ivan Villa: If it helps, I would keep all action buttons in generally the same place, whether visible or behind ellipses. So not some above and some below.
Grace S: Perhaps we were too late to the party, because I'm getting the same error message. (Screenshot attached)

Hi Ivan Villa
Maybe you can do as Didier Varlot did where he created a separate thread for everyone to send in feedback after the beta tested,see here https://clickup.canny.io/feature-requests/p/swimlanes-beta-feedback
For understanding my feedback, please check my attached screenshots and read my comments below
- Bullet 1: Add collapse & expand all
- Bullet 2: Confucius once said: What you hear you forget, what you see you remember. It means that we remember and recognize things quickly when we see them. We use checklists much more than sub-tasks. The more subtask added, the more time spent clicking and finding content on the task list.
Adding a checklist here on the left side of the task description field will let us quickly add, edit or update the checklist, or see what is the first, next and final step we need to do to complete the task.
We don't have to scroll up and down between the task description and the checklist fields, the less scrolling the more time-saving and effective we can work
You might ask why we don't just use the checklist command "/checklist" in the task description field.
The answer is: Checklist in Task-description field doesn't have task progression tracking indicator and assignee features. See my request here https://clickup.canny.io/feature-requests/p/mention-checklist-in-tasks-description-field-comment-field-and-page
If you somehow can embed the Checklist section inside the Task Description field then we will use it.
- Bullet 1: same here, in "sidebar view" add checklist section here as well
- Bullet 1: Currently the task view page can only be expanded max 50% of the screen, the larger it can expand the better it is.
- Bullet 2: Please give us the option to expand/resize the page view to 75% or more so we can hide other data fields in the background we don't want to see on the list view. The larger the page view is, the better for our eyes to be focused on the task view page only instead of our eyes getting disrupted by all kinds of info, text, color, or data in the background
Kim Hoang (BF): Hey Kim we do have one! the link is here https://clickup.canny.io/task3, you can also access it any time by clicking on the feedback button in the bottom left corner in the task view beta. There are some other folks that share similar thoughts so feel free to check it out and add to the beta convo. :)
