The Basics of Items

Your monday.com boards are made up of groups of items. An item is an individual row (or line item) in a group. The content of an item is totally up to you and will depend on what the board's plan is — from a list of projects to weekly tasks.


Adding an item

To add an item to a board, simply click into the box which says + Add and type what you want the item to say.  Then press Enter.


You can also add an item below an existing item by clicking on the drop-down arrow to the left of the item and select "Create new Item below".



Duplicating an item

Save time by duplicating an item. To do this, just follow the steps below:

  1. Click the dropdown button that appears to the left of the item.
  2. Select Duplicate item 


If you'd also like to duplicate the updates section of an item, just select the Duplicate Item & Updates option.


Deleting an item

To delete an item, you can simply:

  1. Highlight the item you want to remove.
  2. Click the menu button that appears to the left.
  3. And then select Delete.


If you have accidentally deleted an item not to worry! You can restore the item within 30 days from the Recycle BinYou can also archive an item instead of deleting it, in case you would like to restore it at any point. 


Editing an item

You can edit the name of an item (task or project) anytime. Just follow the below:

  • Hover over item title.
  • Click the "Pencil" image.
  • Type new title.
  • Press Enter.


You can also edit and several items at once by using batch actions
