How To Use airfocus Custom Views to Supercharge Your Workspace
By Tomas Prochazka

Here at airfocus, we're always working to improve our service and bring you the best features.

And in this post, we're going to touch on one of the features that make airfocus so great:

Custom views.

Custom views determine what you see when you open airfocus, bringing the most important information to you. 

So let’s dive in!

The benefits of using custom views:

Get a better overview of different parts of the project

Using custom views gives you a better overview of the different parts of a project. Specifically, it allows you to view the parts of a project that you care most about. 

You can customize what’s displayed and how prominently, and you can customize the view of each project. This is a great way to save time because you can quickly gather all the key details you need.

Better track status and progress

Custom views let you track the status and progress of each of your projects better than before. You can choose what each view displays including task status and progress.

You can also see who is responsible for the various tasks involved in a project, giving you a comprehensive idea of what needs to be done, when, and by who. 

Compare items

Custom views also make it easy to compare items. You can choose to align various tasks, projects, or goals side-by-side in airfocus.

This allows you to quickly scan for progress comparisons, key differences, stakeholders, and more. It's a great way to contextualize your various projects and tasks at a glance. Just another one of the reasons why the custom views feature is so helpful!

Display items on a roadmap or release plan

You can use custom views to display items on a roadmap or release plan. This allows you to view a particular project and its components in a way that makes sense to you and your team. 

It's a feature that conforms to how you work, rather than the other way around. This is essential in product management and gives you instant oversight at any time. 

How to use airfocus custom views

Using airfocus custom views is easy! 

First, you just create a new workspace. You can do this from scratch or with one of our built-in templates

If you decide to go with a template, you can flip through the default views available in that template. If you're starting from scratch, then just go into the Views settings and choose the views you want to add.

Once you've added the views you want to use, you'll start to see your workspace taking shape! Continue tweaking it and adding different custom views until it's just the way you like it. 

What views can you use?

Table views

Table views give you a scoreboard where you can quickly gauge each team member's progress, performance, and engagement. 

Chart views

Use chart views to get an idea of your quick wins and low-impact projects. This is useful for quickly seeing what you can do right now to make progress and what you can save for later. 

Board views

Board views give you a kanban display of various to-dos in a list. This is great for tasks that don't necessarily have a fixed deadline and can be completed at any time. 

Timeline views

The timeline option is for looking at tasks that are due at a specific time in your roadmap. It's also helpful for understanding the order in which tasks must be completed. 


Finally, there's the Inbox custom view which works with the airfocus Insights app. This view is useful for checking your notifications, progress, and other key items in an organized way.

Get the most out of airfocus with custom views

Now that you know how the different custom views work in airfocus, you're ready to start using this powerful feature!
