Hiding columns on your board

The functionality mentioned in this article will give you the option to hide columns in your board and save them as a new view. This will help you focusing on what's important and will save you time of scrolling through all the columns to find what you need.  

 

How to hide columns 

Open any of your boards and click on the "Hidden Columns" icon at the top of your board:

After selecting "Hidden Columns", you will see that all of your columns are automatically selected, meaning that they are currently all displayed on your board. To hide columns, simply deselect the ones that you do not want to appear on your board, as so:

Note: changes made to column(s) in one group will apply to the whole board.

 

Save it as a view 

Saving your filters is a great way to access to what you need to see in just a few clicks!
Let's say that we are only interested to see a few columns on our Sales Pipeline board including the sales representative, their contact and phone number. After hiding the unnecessary columns, we can save it as a "new view" as below:

Next, we will rename our filter as "Sales rep details" so we can easily identify this simplified view for future access:

Et voilà! 🥳

You will be able to access all your saved filters, as well as any other board view, anytime from the top of your board:

Impact on Automations

Hiding a column can interfere with the automations you have created on your board that includes that column. 
For example, in our board we have the below integration:

If we decide to hide the column "content" or the column "designer",  the automation will no longer be working and will be automatically disabled.
