How To Create A List On ClickUp

Do you want another place to hold different sets of tasks on ClickUp? Or are you trying to organize your work as much as possible? Either way, you can create new lists on your ClickUp workspace whether you’re using the free plan or not. Check our guide below, and we’ll cover the steps to do so.


There are different levels in the organizational hierarchy in ClickUp. This level of organization allows you to easily track your progress as your work or project expands.

The fourth level in the hierarchy on ClickUp is “lists.” Lists on ClickUp hold all your tasks within the workspace, and they can’t exist outside of lists.

To organize different tasks, you can create more lists in one of your spaces or folders. Here’s a quick guide to help you do it on your account.

How to create a new list on ClickUp

A space or folder on ClickUp can contain multiple lists. Lists can contain a lot of tasks, so you can create multiple ones to separate your work on the app.

You can create lists on ClickUp from their web, desktop, and mobile app. Follow our tutorials below to learn how.

On your computer:

  1. Open the ClickUp desktop app or visit their web client and sign in to your account.
  2. Hover your mouse pointer over one of your spaces or folders and click the plus icon.

  3. On the menu that appears, select “List.”

  4. Choose a name for your new list and click “Create List” to confirm your decision.

For those on the Free Forever workspace plan, you can only create up to 100 lists and folders within your workspace. On the other hand, workspaces on the Business plan and above have a limit of 400.

On your phone:

  1. Open the ClickUp app from your home screen or app drawer and sign in to your account.
  2. Tap the three lines on the top left corner to open the menu.

  3. Expand one of your spaces or folders where you want to add a list and tap the plus icon.

  4. Tap the Create a List option from the menu.

  5. Choose a name for the new list and change its settings. Tap Create on the top right to confirm your decision.

That’s how you create new lists on ClickUp. You can find your new lists from the sidebar and the other view options you have on the app.

Please note that only admins, owners, and members can create a list on the app. Guest users won’t be able to create, edit, or delete lists on your workspace.

To wrap things up
