"My Week" is a great way for you to see everything you and your team need to accomplish this week, next or even what is overdue. It works by collecting all the tasks across your monday.com account that are due in the current week. 📆
How does it work?
You will find My Week in the left pane of your monday.com account as below:
This feature works by collecting all tasks assigned to you and/or your team members across the account. My week works with tasks assigned through the People Column. To make that feature even more efficient, we recommend using a Date or Timeline Column for each of the tasks on your boards.
When clicking on my week, you will see by default all the tasks assigned to you for the current week.
You can also change the date range by clicking on "Previous week" or "Next week" at the top of your screen as below:
My week settings
- Date Type
In the My Week settings, you'll be able to decide if you want to see deadlines or tasks with dates that are not in deadline mode. For this, toggle between "Only Deadlines" or "All Dates", as shown below.
- Assignments without a date
We know that some tasks just don't require a date or deadline but you'd still like to see those tasks in the My Week view to keep yourself organized; so we added this as an option in the settings as well! Tasks will show here whether the board has date columns with empty values, or no date columns at all:
Ensure the "Show assignments without a date" option is checked to have those date-less tasks appear in My Week as well under the "Without a date" section:
Filter what you see in My Week
Have you ever noticed that some items that appear in your My Week aren't necessarily your upcoming tasks? For example, at our ice cream shop, we assign one person as our flavor tester, and one person as our ice cream maker. Each flavor will appear in both people's My Weeks, but only the ice cream maker needs to see the flavor prep in their upcoming events.
In order to filter what we see in our My Weeks, we've set the flavors with a deadline combo!
We've connected the date that the flavor will be released in stores with the status of its development and the ice cream maker. This way, when we toggle to "Only Deadlines" in My Week, we will only see the flavors we're in charge of making, not the ones we need to test.

Hide specific boards
Being a part of multiple boards, can make My Week a bit overwhelming. Now, you can choose to hide tasks from specific boards if you don’t want to see them in My Week. To hide a board, simply click on the eye icon next to any assignment from that board.
In each of your board, you can choose the labels that define a status as done. Click on your status column and pick "column settings". From there, click on the label color you want to pick as "done".
View your team's tasks
To view what is your team up to, click on "following" located on the upper right of My Week. From here, choose which team members' tasks you want to see in your My Week.
Once done, go back to My Week. You will now be able to see all the tasks of the team members you've followed. You can also use the filter by person to view the tasks of one specific person.
Update your tasks from my week
You can update any of your tasks directly from My Week. Simply click on the person icon and a card will open as below:
A card will show you all of the information of the linked item in your Client board. You can update information in the card and the item in the Client board will update automatically with these changes.
This card will show you all the information related to this item. You can update information in the card and this will automatically update the board the item belongs to.
