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! 🎊
How does it work?
Head over to your left panel and click "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.
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 as a subitem icon next to the parent item, or a number depending on how many subitems are attached to that parent item. When clicking on the icon or number next to the item you will see "Subitems of..." followed by the list of subitems.
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.
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!
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 only view 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 filter out all items marked as “Done”, or with any other status label defined in the status column settings as completed.
If you wish to manually mark items as "done", hover to the left of the item and click on the downward arrow to access the drop-down menu. You can then select "Mark as done" as seen below:
Customize what you see in My work
From choosing which boards appear to the specific people and columns that are showcased, you can customize your My work settings based on your preferences. To open the customization settings menu, click the "Customize" icon and choose the boards, columns and people you'd like to see.
You can select whose assigned items you want to appear in My work. Choose yourself or any of the team members or guests in your account!
You can choose to display or hide items from certain boards in your account! By default, all account boards are visible in My work. To hide a board, just click the blue box to the right of the board's name.
- Status and Date Column
If any of your boards have more than one Status or Date Column, you can use the drop-down menu to choose which ones you'd like to see in My work for each of your boards. If any of your boards have only one Status or Date Column, it will be automatically selected by default.
Add items directly in My Work
For efficiency and ease, you can add items from within your My Work page. To add an item, click on the "New item" button at the top left-hand corner of the page. From here you can name your item, select which board and group to add the item to, and select the date for the item.
Edit items without leaving My work
There's no need to maneuver back and forth between My work and your boards to edit items! You can edit items straight from My work by clicking any of the sections to make changes or by clicking the item's name 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.
