Within Teamwork, you can manage your board view columns to set them up in a way that works best for your project.

Click the options button (three dots) to the right of the relevant column name and select Column Settings from the dropdown menu.

From here, you can:

  • Edit - Change the column name and colour.
  • Filter - Show a search filter at the top of the column so you can show only cards that match your search term.
  • Delete column - Remove the column from the board - any cards on the column will be returned to the backlog.
  • Add multiple tasks - Quickly choose multiple tasks from your project and add them to the column.
  • Archive completed cards - Hide any cards that have been marked as complete from the board (you'll find the option to show archived cards under the main board options menu in the top right of the screen).
  • Quickly sort cards - Sort cards currently in the column by name, priority or date created. This sorts the cards but allows you to manually update their order by dragging them.
  • Column settings - Access more options for setting an automatic sort on the column, and choosing details to show on cards.
  • Collapse - This will minimize the board column to a narrow column with just the column name displayed vertically, giving you more room on screen to work with other columns.

Default task list

In the column settings, you can select a default task list for the column. If a default task list is selected, when a new card is added to the board on the current column, the task for that card will be added to the task list you have specified.

Likewise, if you add a task to a task list in List view, it will add the task as a card to the corresponding board.

Automatic column sorting

You can choose an attribute to automatically sort the cards in a column, and choose the sort order (ascending or descending).

When you set automatic sorting on a column, the cards will be grouped by that attribute, in order.

Choosing card details

You can choose which details you want to show on the cards in your column, by selecting one of the presets or choosing the Custom option and selecting the checkbox for individual options in the column settings screen.
