Why would I click "Hide" to ADD or VIEW additional columns in list view?

I am stunned at this UI decision. As a note, I’ve been using Asana for years and am very familiar with its capabilities. I know it is possible to add additional columns in list view. I know there are tags and projects and I want to view them.

I had to go to the help center to figure this out. Insane.

In what world would I ever think to click an item labeled “Hide” when I want to SHOW or add a column? It’s like someone followed a UI rule “only label buttons with verbs” but didn’t actually think about whether it made sense in this case. In the column headers, of course, there is a “+” icon but for some mysterious reason that only lets you add columns if you are creating a new field or property… you can’t add an existing one.
