My Work is a great way to see everything you and your team need to accomplish in a convenient, easy-to-use space. It works by showcasing all tasks across your monday.com account that have been assigned to you. Visualize all your work in one place and stay on top of your tasks wherever you are with My Work mobile! 📆
What is My Work?
My Work collects all of your assigned tasks so you can take a look at all items in one place. Rather than having to jump between boards and dashboards to check what's happening, My Work centralizes this information for your convenience. You can also customize it according to your needs! 🎊
How does it work?
To access My Work, click on the "My Work" calendar icon at the bottom of your screen.
Here, you will find all tasks assigned to you from relevant boards in your account. You can choose which boards you want My Work to pull tasks from by clicking the "Boards" button at the top of your screen. From here, you can use the search bar to search your boards, and you can select or deselect these boards to choose which ones show items here.
In order to see items appear in My Work, it is crucial that you have a:
- People Column and make sure that you are assigned to the items you wish to see
- Date Column to help My Work categorize your items by date
- Status Column to help filter completed items from those in your to do list (This is optional but strongly recommended)
By selecting List View mode, all your My Work items will be shown as a list. This enables you to see your tasks in a more compact way, showing more items on the screen. The list toggle, at the top right-hand side of the screen allows you to switch between the 2 types of views: the cards view and the list view
You can also see tasks assigned to anyone else in your account by choosing them in the "Following" filter section in the upper right hand corner of My Work.
How do items appear?
Items are categorized into six sections at the top of your screen according to date (or no date) and there is a number in each group that indicates how many items are in each section:
Hide done items
While My Work is a great place to see everything in the entire account that has been assigned to you, you may find it more helpful to view only upcoming tasks you have yet to complete. For this reason, we've added the option to hide done items! Click on the "Hiding done Items" filter option and My Work will take your Status Column into consideration and filter out any items that have been marked as "Done".
What information can I see here?
My Work shows the item's name in bold on the top line. Below is the name of the board, followed by the name of the group, Status Column, and Date Column.
For more information, click on the three dots at the top of the item to open up the Item Card in full screen! Here, we can see all of the item's columns and even make changes directly from this screen! You can edit anything right from the Item Card, including Updates, and changes will be automatically reflected on the board.
If you want to view the board that the item belongs to, click the name of the board and the group the item is in at the top of the item card:
Add and edit items directly from My Work
There's no need to maneuver back and forth between My Work and your boards to add or edit items! You can edit items straight from My Work by clicking any of the items to open the Item Card! You can edit anything right from the Item Card, including Updates, and changes will be automatically reflected on the board.
To add a new item, click the blue plus sign at the bottom right corner of your screen, and then type the name of your new item into the field in the pop-up window. Next, you can select the board and group you'd like to add this item to and edit the item as you wish in its Item Card. 🎊
