My Work Customization: Add or hide ANY column to view & show parent Item name for Sub items

Totally agree that “My work” should allow for way more column customization. It is frustrating when having the same sub-item (task) for various parent items but unable to see (at a glance) what parent item it is relevant to. The ability to customize the columns should also exist e.g. organize the columns in your preferred order, expand columns etc. This feature should get a lot more attention as ultimately it should be the go-to when having multiple boards with a great amount of sub-items (tasks).

I agree with posts above. I imagine that being able to customize My Work would benefit most teams. As it is now My Work is basically useless for our team, which is a shame considering that it could save us a lot of time if only we could customize it.

Adding custom columns (especially status column), filter and sort options as well as item-subitem view (same as on boards) is essential.

Agreed! Not being able to view the parent tasks on subtasks/to tag the subtasks with their parent task - or to include them on integrations like Google Calendar or Tasks - makes the subtasks useless. When I’m looking at the tags in my calendar and all I can see it “Send email,” that isn’t helpful! And having to write the parent task into each subtask line not only makes no sense but is time intensive and clunky. I think this failure will make me an Asana user… :pensive:

Years later and it looks like this is still an issue - and would be somewhat of an easy fix!

Please, please add in the ability to bring in other columns to the My Work space - it would be transformative to those of us that want to use this, but currently can’t!

Our company recently switched to Monday and it is kind of ridiculous that this is not an option.

Agree! At a minimum, add a second status column. We use two status columns for sub-items, one for task status (working on it, ready for work, etc.) and one for task priority (low, medium, high). We want to see both status columns in MyWork, not pick one or the other.

So many improvements to make regarding the My Work feature… and 2,5 years further still nothing.
Also really needs an option to sort by start date instead being stuck to items sorted by end date, which is an illogical design choice; When you put something in your agenda you plan an item for when you have to attend it not when it is planned to be done… :person_facepalming:

The My Work function in Monday is fabulous! I did notice the mandatory columns cannot be changed. For instance, the Priority column is there and none of my projects have a priority status. Therefore it’s useless.

I would like to request the ability either to hide/delete it, or better yet, the ability to customize the columns.

Thank you for your consideration and if anybody else would like that function, vote it up! :slight_smile:

I can’t believe this comment was put in Sept 2021 and monday.com still hasn’t addressed properly. IT’s the whole point of organizing your projects and activities!

Yes!!! MyWork is starting to become useful, but still could use some more improvements like this.

I’m noticing this as well, how many votes does it take before Monday acknolwdges requests? This is years old at this point and some of this is very basic.

People have been asking for My Work to include the parent item of subtasks for at least two years? How is this not currently possible?

i voted as well.
my team needs a way to see everyone on the teams tasks regardless of what board they are on. our account only allows us to connect 10 boards to a dashboard which honestly that would just be mine lol.

To add, I would like to be able to save these customizations in My Work and to be able to be apply them to a certain dashboard or board for team visibility.

when can we see this feature launched?

I agree that adding the parent item as a column option here in “My Work” would potentially eliminate hours of manually adding the project name to each subitem. I would love for this feature to be added!

Any update from Monday? When can we customize My Work? It’s a gamechanger! This should be a priority.

Not allowing for viewing the items Parent Task and only the Subtask in “My Work” makes the page entirely useless, when it could be the most useful page in Monday.

Should the community expect this to be resolved at any point?

Allowing for greater customization of this page would be beneficial, as well, after it’s made useable.

I have just rolled out Monday.com to my team. The number 1 complaint I receive is this very issue. It’s causing a lot of confusion. Is there any update on wether or not this will be added to the platform? I imagine that this causes issues for many workflows.

If youre not working with the timeline-column (yet) realise that My Work uses the end date of that column. So if you might use that column in the future for a Gantt view or planning related boards that will make a mess out of My Work; you want users to see an item at the start date not when it needs to be done. Maybe drop a vote here if you agree: My Work and Timelines - Feature requests - monday Community Forum
