Within Teamwork, each project item you create has a unique ID number associated with it which can be used to quickly identify and locate the item.

Items with unique IDs:

  • Projects
  • Task lists
  • Tasks
  • Subtasks
  • Sub-subtasks
  • Messages
  • Milestones
  • Files 
  • Notebooks
  • Links
  • People
  • Companies
  • Teams
  • Comments

For all items with unique IDs, you will find the ID in the URL for the individual item.




Task IDs

To see an individual task's ID number, you can hover over the task name in the List view of your project.
