Hide sidebar items

Hi. Could we have an option to customise the side bar. Eg to remove items that we don’t use?
For example I don’t use goals or portfolios or reporting or My Tasks. So it would be good to hide these items.

Hi @Tim_Jasper, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

While this isn’t on our current roadmap, hopefully it’s something our Product team could introduce in the future! I’ll keep you posted :slight_smile:

In the meantime the workaround is to use a Chrome extension like Stylebot with a custom CSS to hide what you want :slight_smile: but that is an unofficial hack.

YES!! I was just looking for a way to do this. Those items take up so much space that its hard for me to see my projects list on my small screen laptop. Hope these options are available soon!

100% agree. I can’t believe you can’t hide items in your sidebar. So many things there I don’t want to see.

Also, maybe there is a way to get rid of the “Invite teammates” and “help and getting started” at the bottom, but I haven’t found it and find it incredibly annoying.

Is there a way to customize the sidebar to remove "Reporting,’ ‘Portfolios’ and ‘Goals,’ etc.?

Hi,
No this is not possible :confused:

I’d like the ability to hide(minimize) the section in the upper part of the left sidebar and/or reorder the sections on the left sidebar.

Given that 99% of my time is spent in projects/teams, I find that the upper part of the sidebar (home, my tasks, inbox etc.) eats up an unusual amount of space and I often end up scrolling or having to click ‘show more projects’. Favorites don’t help either as I need to see the entire team folder more often than not.

Hi @josh_hinden, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback :slight_smile:

We do have an existing request for this in the #productfeedback already so I’ve gone ahead and merged your post with this existing request to consolidate feedback :slight_smile:

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if this is something our Product team implements in the future :slight_smile:

It’s frustrating having the team members circles and ‘invite’ link taking up so much room in the sidebar. I would hate to think how cluttered it must look when there are a lot of team members assigned, and for me it’s only me so I never use the functionality.

Hi @Lisa_Coulson, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback!

Hopefully this is something our Product team can implement in the future. I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

Agree with all comments here. I HATE the left sidebar as it is now. So much real estate is taken for things I 100% don’t need to see and makes it much more cumbersome to get to the things I use all the time.

Please remove (or give us the option to remove) items we may not use. In my case, I don’t need to see portfolios and goals at the top, Invite team members, and help should be moved to the top right corner (where is a ux best practice and where users look for help options).

Seriously, it is so frustrating to be prescribed what is important to me. Technically, this should be easy functionality to include, so I’m assuming that there is some reason Asana keeps choosing not to make this customizable.

Same thing here. On a 14 inch monitor, the sidebar is almost not usable any more. Great for Asana to launch new features, but bad news for those users who don’t use these features and now have a completely clogged view
