Saving Timeline Layout With Collapsed Sections

I’m running into a bit of a confusing situation using ‘Save Layout As Default’ when coming to Timeline versus List view, and I’m not sure if it’s a bug, a deliberate choice, or something that I’m doing wrong.

In List view, when you’re working on a project with multiple sections, you can collapse sections with the triangle next to the name, and if you save the layout as default then they remain collapsed when you come back to that view or project. However in Timeline view, you are able to collapse sections to hide the tasks that are there, but even if you save as default, if you change views or leave and return, then the collapsed sections are expanded again.

Is there a way to make this work, or a solution that allows me to have the relevant section of a project expanded while collapsing the others?

To give context, I am working on a few projects for products, and each section are tasks that need to be done to consider a particular step ‘completed’ in the development. In List View I just have the current section expanded and everything else collapsed, so that it’s not too busy. However each of these sections and tasks inside the section have date ranges and due dates in order to give a better long term view of the development cycle, even though some are not yet relevant as we’re not onto that stage. I could go through and manually collapse the irrelevant sections each time to make it clearer, but this feels like a waste of time for something that works on another view in the way I’m using it.

I’m the project owner, and we’re on a Premium subscription, so if there’s something I can change elsewhere that might be relevant happy to do so.

Hi @Josh26, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

At this time, it’s not possible to save your Timeline view with Sections expanded/collapsed. That said, I’m going to move this post to #productfeedback so folks in the community can upvote it and so our developers can get a better look at the needs of our members.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates!
