Hi @Ayman_Alam , welcome to the forum :wave:

I also noticed this the other day. The tooltip does not show up on hover anymore, which was useful for long custom field names that get truncated within the task details panel.

Hi @Vanessa_N do you know whether this a temporary issue?

Hi @Ayman_Alam and @Richard_Sather, thanks for flagging this! I’ve consulted our team and they’ve confirmed that this is intended and part of an experiment, so not everyone will see it. I’ve passed your feedback along so they can take it into consideration before making their final decision.

Hi, this is affecting some of our users too. The tooltip is essential for our workflow. Removing it will be a major headache for us. Please do not remove it.

This is a huge issue for me and my affected users. Take my vote for not removing it…or make the entirety of the field and tooltip visible without having to hover.
