My Work

 

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 with My Work! 📆 

 

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! 🎊 

 

Tip: Are you using My Work on your mobile app? Check out our My Work mobile app article here for some helpful information. 😊 

 

How does it work?

Start using My Work by clicking on the calendar checklist icon located in your left panel. When you hover over the icon, it will say "My Work".

Here, you will find all tasks assigned to you from all the boards in your account. This means that in order to see items appear in My Work, it is crucial that you have a People Column and you are assigned to the items you wish to see. 

Note: You can also see tasks assigned to anyone else in your account. This is done in the customization settings!

 

What information can I see?

The items and subitems in My Work are formatted similarly to how they appear on your boards.

Your subitems will appear like the rest of your items with some key differences. In the "Board" section, you will see "Subitems of..." followed by the name of the board it is associated with. Additionally, you are able to see the original parent item it corresponds to by clicking on the subitem icon next to its name.

Note: There is a limit of 50 boards and 1000 items that can be showcased in My Work and subitems are considered as part of the original item. You will receive a pop-up notification once the limit is reached.

 

How do items appear?

Items are categorized in six sections according to date (or no date) and there is a number next to each group that indicates how many items are in each section.

See the categories
  • Past dates - All dates that have passed
  • Today - Today's date
  • This week - Dates coming up in the current week, excluding today's date
  • Next Week - Dates in the upcoming week
  • Later - Dates following the upcoming week
  • Without a date - No assigned date

 

Note: Items will appear in the "Past dates", "Today", "This week", "Next week", and "Later" sections based on the date assigned in the Date Column. However, it is not mandatory for items to have a Date Column to be shown in My Work and items without a date will be showcased in the "Without a date" section.

 

Search for items in My Work

If you're a little overwhelmed by the number of items you see in My Work, you're not alone. Some items are not always relevant, so we've added a keyword search bar for you to narrow down your items and easily find what you're looking for!

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 a "Hide done items" option! When you click this box, My Work will take your Status Column into consideration and filter out any items that have been marked as "Done".
