Marie, is there any updates on how we manage finished tasks within section?

Not at the moment, but I’ll keep you posted in Archive a Section in a Project :slight_smile:

Hi Leonarce,
If you are referring to being able to hide or archive sections containing only closed tasks, I came up with a workaround here, which might help?

Thank Robin, not an elegant solutions but perhaps it would solve the problem for now.

Everything seems much brighter (color-wise) this morning. Tags are bold, palette is brighter…something is up!

@Shawn_Holmes, keep an eye out for an official announcement in the #announcements later today :slight_smile:

Wondering why the colors for the fields changed? It used to be all the same font color, now it’s some in black and some in white. It’s not very pleasing to the eye! Is there an option to change this?
