Within Teamwork, you can use table view to easily view and manage tasks on your projects.



Switching to table view

To view tasks in table view, select the Table tab from the project's navigation menu.

Note: If you do not see Table as an option, it will need to be enabled by a project admin or site admin via the project's settings.

When viewing the Table area on a project, your tasks will be displayed in table form with each task on a separate row. Each related task property will be shown in different columns.

Creating and managing task lists in table view

Depending on your project permissions, you will have an option to Add Task List in the top right when in table view.



The options button (three dots) in the top right provides additional options:



Task list options

To access the options menu for a task list in table view, select the relevant task list from the left navigation pane.

While viewing the individual task list, click the options button (three dots) in the top right to access the task list options.




In the All Lists view, click the three dots to the right of the relevant task list name.

Note: Tasks must be grouped by task list in the All Lists view in order to access the task list options.




Customizing table columns

In tasks table view, you can choose which columns to display by clicking the options button (three dots) to the right of the column headings. This will open a dropdown where you can toggle on and off individual property columns.

You can also drag and drop selected columns to reorder your view. Click and drag a column heading and drop it to a new position in the table.

Note: The task name column is fixed to the left of the table and cannot be reordered or hidden.

You can also adjust the width of certain columns in table view (title, description, tags, board column, repeats, custom fields).

To change the width of a column, hover to the right of the column name to display the left right arrow. You can then drag and drop the arrow to expand or contract the column size.

Scrolling table view

Depending on the number of columns you have enabled for the table, a horizontal scrollbar become accessible to allow you to scroll to view the remaining columns.

Note: The task name column will remain fixed on the left.

You can also scroll vertically through the tasks or task lists.

Filtering options

Filter options can be accessed at the top of the tasks table view.



  • Quick search - filter based on task name or task list name.
  • Tags - filter by one or multiple tags.
  • Assignee - show only tasks assigned to you or tasks assigned to everyone.
  • Tasks - view incomplete tasks, completed tasks, or all tasks.


Sorting options

In table view, you can sort tasks by task list or by certain task property columns.

To group or ungroup tasks based on their associated task list, click the options button (three dots) beside the Tasks heading at the top of the view.

Note: This option is only available in the All Lists view. New tasks can only be created when All Lists is set to Group tasks.





To sort tasks based on a particular property, click the relevant column heading at the top of the table. Clicking the column heading multiple times will toggle the tasks between ascending and descending order based on that property.

To clear your sort selection, hover over the active column and click the additional arrow option, then select Clear sort from the dropdown menu.
