Planview Customer Success Center

Customize Grid settings



This feature is in Beta  / Controlled Availability. To request early access, contact your Customer Success Manager. Planview, at its own discretion, reserve the right to accept or reject a customer request to enable a feature that is in Beta / Controlled Availability (i.e. “Beta software”) state. If a customer’s request is approved,  an addendum to the Planview agreement will be required prior to the enablement of the feature in the customer environment, to address legal terms related to the use of Beta software.


The Grid view lists all items that are currently on your board. You can group the items by state, importance, or any Picklist fields. Some examples of how you can use the grid include:

  • Create a Sprint picklist for your Task module, where you can view the Tasks grouped by Sprint on the Team board.
  • Group board data for a specific period (such as a sprint or specific month) by importance so that your team members can quickly identify the most important tasks to be worked on when they’re available.
  • Create a list of future items, to use as a backlog to track tasks that you want to do in the future, which helps your team prioritize their work and cleans up your board’s to-do column.

The Grid can only be set by the Owner or Editor for the board. Viewers cannot configure the View settings, but they can add columns and modify the default columns set by the Board owner. The current user's settings are saved during their session.

The grid is supported in the following boards and entities:

Board list Board item Details
Portfolios, Project, Milestones, Tasks, and Cases Portfolio, Project

Configuring the View

  1. In the Grid view, click the View settings button.

  2. In the View settings popup, set the default sorting and grouping for the view. Note that you can group the rows by any Picklist custom fields.
  3. In the Column Order, select one or multiple columns and move them to Your selection area.
  4. Drag the Freeze bar so that you can define how many columns are frozen for the board. To remove the freeze column option, simply move the Freeze bar to the top of Your selection area.
