Choose Sections to Automatically Open Minimized

Hey, I’m a Product Manager in my organization and I find this problem that keeps bothering us.
We manage a large backlog of tasks in certain projects for future updates of our products, and I would very much prefer it if I could set sections of my choosing in a given project to be automatically minimized when I open the project.

Hi @Itamar_Shai , welcome to the forum :smiley:

What you are looking for can be easily achieved in Asana! Simply collapse or expand your sections in your list view as you like and then click on the ‘Save layout as default’ from the … menu in the top right corner.


Then the next time anyone loads the project, your sections will be expanded or collapsed as you set them. You can reload your browser window to test it (or if in the desktop app, leave the project and come back to it).

:bulb: The same applies to any sorts or filters - to save them as you set them, use the same ‘Save layout as default’ button.


What if you don’t have “Save layout as default” option?

Welcome, @Jem. Click that icon with the blue dot! It has moved.


I just saw that. Facepalm moment!
