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.

Customizing table columns

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

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.

You can choose which columns to display by clicking the plus icon to the right of the column headings. This will open a dropdown where you can toggle on and off individual property columns including existing task custom fields. Depending on your permissions, you will also have an option to create new project-specific task custom fields directly from this menu.

Site and project administrators can also enable a shared table view for all members of the project.

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

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

You can also access your existing saved filters via the Saved filters button in the bottom left of the filter options dropdown. Clicking a saved filter will apply it to the table view.


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.

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