In List View, you can view all of your tasks in a list. Task lists can be separated in sections, sorted or filtered to meet your needs.

How to view your tasks in List view
Task lists are typically used to display your tasks in one of two ways:
- List the tasks in all of your projects
- List the tasks in a single project
In the first method, we’ve clicked on Tasks in the left side panel. (See image below.)
Note that we now see a list of all tasks in all projects that you have access to.. Project names are also listed above their respective tasks.
In the second method, we select an individual project from the Project menu (In the example below, the project is called “Campaign”). Here we only see tasks belonging to that project.
Managing your tasks in List view
Once a task is selected from the list, you can edit the task details. This includes adding or editing a task description, sharing discussions with team members, adding subtasks, adding files related to the task, and managing followers of the task.
You can also set the status of a task, set a due date, or track the time spent working on that task. In the upper right hand corner of the task details, you will find clickable icons to access these features.
When the list is sorted by Priority you can change the priorities of your tasks by dragging-and-dropping them to different positions in the list.
You can also access a number of options by selecting the pull down action menu (3 dots) in the upper right hand corner.

When your tasks are sorted by priorities you have the option to reorder your tasks. Simply select your task, press and hold down the mouse key, and drag and drop it to the desired position.
When the list is sorted by Hierarchy you can add a section to your task list by clicking on the drop down arrow besides the Add Task button.
If you have tasks set up in different sections, they can be dragged and dropped to different positions within a section or to a different section altogether.
