Table View in Wrike

Table 1. Availability - Legacy plans


Use Table view to see your tasks, folders, projects, or spaces in a spreadsheet format. Business and Enterprise users can also use Table view to add custom fields to their tasks, folders, projects, and spaces.

Using Table view gives you:

  • Upgraded custom field management.

  • Enhanced project support: Edit project attributes directly from the view.

  • Sticky column sorting and width settings (your changes stay in place when you leave and come back to the view).

  • Grouping the field's value to easy visualisation.

  • Adjustable display density.


Navigate the view

Tasks are grouped based on the folders and projects they reside in.


If a task is tagged in multiple locations, then it appears under each folder/project that it’s in.

Adjust display density

You can select from two view options. Compact mode increases the overall amount of data displayed at one time so you see more tasks. Default mode is the default view.

  • Compact mode — See more on the screen at one time (the extra space between items is removed)

  • Default — A more comfortable view for viewing data in a spreadsheet


You can adjust the width of any column in Table view. Just click the border of the column and drag it to the left or right. Release your mouse when you're done.

To adjust the display density click the three-dot menu button 1 in the toolbar and select an option from the list 2.


Expand or collapse items

You can expand or collapse items (tasks, folders, and projects) to see or hide their content (subtasks, subfolders, and subprojects).

  • Collapse an item: Click the caret icon to the left of the title 1.

  • Expand an item: Click the caret icon to the left of the title 2.

  • Collapse all items: Click Subitems 3 on the toolbar and then select Collapse all 4.

  • Expand next level subitems: Click Subitems 3 on the toolbar and then select Expand next level 5.

  • See all projects: Click Subitems 3 on the toolbar and then select Expand to show projects 6 at the top of the view.

  • Expand all items: Click Subitems 3 on the toolbar and then select Expand all 7.

You can choose to hide or show empty folders while preserving the hierarchy. To do so:

  1. Click the three-dot menu button 1 in the toolbar.

  2. Click on the Empty projects and folders 2 from the list to hide.



If you select to hide folders, projects stay in place. To hide projects you can use project filters.
