"COLLAPSE (or re-expand) ALL SECTIONS" button needed

I’ve written a program to handle stuff like this — I’ll get it packaged up in a Chrome extension and let ya know when it gets approved by Google.

Is this extension available yet?

Not yet. Will update folks once it is. We’re trying to pack as much functionality into it as possible to resolve a lot of the issues folks have with Asana currently that Asana’s development team doesn’t have the time/resources to address themselves. Bear with us — we promise we’ll get it done faster than the 2+ years we’re all used to here though! :nerd_face:


:slight_smile: @Skyler . Thanks for your effort. As @Adamya mentioned It’s killing our work time without that button too. Please, keep us in the loop.

Hi, team. One more vote here for the ability to collapse all sections in one :computer_mouse: click. Thank you.

@Skyler How’s that extension comin’? We are looking for solutions – free if possible but definitely paid if needed – and would love to take a look at what you are building.

Hi there,

I might have found a helpful solution for this. If you collapse all sections once and save that as the standard view, then it will always go back to a collapsed version once you refresh the page. Maybe that helps.

Best regards, Carl

Indeed, that is quite new behavior (few weeks ago).

That’s good stuff right there Bastien & Carl.

Will there ever be a way to minimize quickly without having to use a workaround?

No idea, maybe one day they’ll have something like “close a section with Ctrl key pushed and that closes everything”. @Rebecca_McGrath should we have a dedicated product feedback for that keyboard shortcut or do you consider as being the same as the current thread?

Hey @Bastien_Siebman, I’d recommend keeping all these feedback together in this thread :slight_smile: Thanks for checking!

This would be super useful. Holding a modifier key when collapsing a section is perfectly acceptable (I don’t need a dedicated button!)

+1 to this idea.

For the stopgap solution, how so you save as standard view?

How to create a bookmarklet (per user @m1ket):

Create a bookmark and add that code snippet as the URL. Then simply click the bookmark button when you’re on the List page.

After reviewing the comments on this topic that spans several years I think we can all agree that ASANA is not the productivity help app that it claims – moreover, it seems as if we the customers are fools for expecting any support or attention.

Hear Out loud. We need this feature urgently… It’s some serious unproductivity without being able to collapse sections

I tried the Bookmark technique in my Chrome browser but it not work. Are there any more instructions or tips?

Also, this thread has been going on for a long time. I am surprised that Asana has not stepped up and made this part of the application. I am having the same experience and frustrations as reported by the community. To me this is critical for productivity and a positive UI/UX experience. I hope they are listening and will take care of this.

Hi @Max_Michaels , the bookmarklet works for me to collapse all sections.
To expand sections, we need to change DownTriangleIcon to RightTriangleIcon.

Sectionts 2

If we want to collapse and expand all sections with one bookmarklet, use conditional branching like this:

	const firstButtonIcon = document.querySelector('.TaskGroupHeader-toggleButton .Icon');
	if (!firstButtonIcon) return;
	const firstTriangleClassName = firstButtonIcon.classList.contains('DownTriangleIcon')? 'DownTriangleIcon': 'RightTriangleIcon';
	document.querySelectorAll(`.TaskGroupHeader-toggleButton .${firstTriangleClassName}`).forEach(buttonIcon => buttonIcon.parentNode.click());

Editing the bookmarklet:

Update in July 2022: I created Introduction to Asana bookmarklets to discuss more about bookmarklets and show more examples.
