monday.com board top section

Here in the Views Center, under Installed Apps, you’ll find Unlimited Subitems. You can rename the view to whatever you like, or you can leave it as Unlimited Subitems. This is where you’ll be able to create and edit your custom hierarchy of subitems.

The concept

Unlimited Subitems is an app that lets you create as many levels of child subitems as you need, sitting below the native monday.com subitems.

We’d love to be able to bring you this experience straight into the Main Board view, but apps are unable to modify the core monday.com experience within the Main Board. This means that the hierarchy of subitems you create with Unlimited Subitems can only be viewed from the Unlimited Subitems view, that you need to add to you board.

Whenever you browse your work in your usual monday.com Main Board view, any child sub-items you’ve created in the Unlimited Subitems View will appear as regular monday.com subitems, all at the same level. In other words, you won’t be able to view your custom hierarchy. However, you will be able to interact with these subitems in all the usual ways, from updating their columns to deleting and moving them.

Creating new child subitems

In the Unlimited Subitems board view, you can add child subitems in the same way that you would on the monday.com Main Board view. Simply click the > symbol in front of any subitem, which will open up a blank new child subitem row for you to complete. You can also provide updates on each child subitems.

Moving and reorganising subitems

In the Unlimited Subitems board view, you can reorganise your subitems by simply dragging and dropping them to where you want them to be. Please note that you can only rearrange subitems that are in the same group.

Editing in the Unlimited Subitems view

You can edit any item or subitem in the Unlimited Subitem view with the pop-up card whenever you click directly on an item. You can also do this by selecting the ... icon that appears to the left of a row when you hover over it. The item pop-up card lets you view and edit all column details about a given item. You can also add, edit or delete new columns from the Unlimited Subitem view. If you need to update many rows, or carry out a bulk update, this will be easier to do in the Main Board view.

Moving items in bulk

Sometimes, you might need to move more than one subitem at a time. To do this, in the Unlimited Subitems board view, simply check each of the subitems you want to move, then select the new parent item you want to assign them to. If you have a lot of subitems, you can use the search function to find the one you’re after.

Storage boards

All the subitems created with Unlimited Subitems will be stored in a new board that the app will automatically create. This storage board allows you to create an infinite amount of child subitems without having them interfere with the reports in your native monday.com board.

Display themes (light, dark and night mode)

We want you to be in control of how the platform display looks according to your preferences. For this reason, USI is compatible with the monday.com themes you want to choose! Getting tired of looking at a bright screen? Choose dark or night mode and give your eyes a rest!


Column Compatibility

Unlimited Subitem columns are only compatible with the following: checkbox, country, color picker, creation log, date, dependency, dropdown, email, file, hour, item id, last updated, link, location, long text, numbers, people, phone, rating, status, team, tags, text, timeline, time tracking, vote, week y timezone.

  • Unfortunately not. Due to a technical limitation, we are unable to carry over your custom subitems to the new board when you duplicate your board. They will carry over as standard monday.com subitems, but your custom hierarchy will be lost. We're hoping to resolve this when the full version of the app is released.

  • Due to a technical limitation, we cannot make changes to the fundamental structure of the main board. This means we have to present your custom subitem hierarchy in our own dedicated app view. However your custom subitems will still appear in the main board - you just won't see your bespoke hierarchy. You can use the main board view for an overview, and the Unlimited Subitems view when you need to drill down into the detail.
