DO NOT Remove List View

Removing List View from your product makes no sense. Why remove a functionality that works very well? What is the gain by taking away an excellent method for managing projects? The new view is restrictive and cumbersome. That said, go ahead and add it, if you feel you must, but do not remove a valuable interface that works great. Truly, if you are simply changing it for change's sake, it is a mistake. Do not refresh the app for vanity and sacrifice functionality... please!

LEAVE LIST VIEW. DO NOT REMOVE LIST VIEW.

Hi Gregory Gulley, welcome to the Community! First of all, I'd like to say a big thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Please rest assured that it will be passed on to our team shortly. 

While we are planning to sunset List view, we're bringing more functionality to the New Table view, which is really a combination of List and classic Table. For example, it's now possible to mass edit tasks and projects in the New Table (it wasn't possible in the classic Table). 

Having said that, we strive to make sure the transition is smooth. Could you please share more details on what you like about the List view so I could provide some recommendations?

Ok, apologies for the delayed response. I have tried multiple times to submit a comment, but the page repeatedly freezes up and disallows copying my text before ultimately crashing. I have typed these in another application in order to (hopefully) get them posted.

 

Problems with New Table view:

  1. Row number column – unneeded and seemingly persistent. I do not need any additional diminishment of available real estate width for managing the tasks, which this column needlessly does. If it has to be there, please make it possible to hide it.
  2. Assignee now gets a whole column? Unnecessary and, again, eats up page width where the previous format using the icon was absolutely sufficient. Please bring that back and remove the assignee column or at least make it hideable.
  3. All the extraneous column width makes task titles severely truncated… harder to see what we’re looking at.
  4. Lack of customization to show/hide unneeded columns is a huge issue, especially for those of us working on a laptop, where screen real estate is scarce to begin with. It’s ok when in a fixed location, but try using new table view on a 15” laptop when traveling… it’s a dreadful UX.

Lastly, I am curious as to the rationale for eliminating two perfectly usable views and attempting to meld them into one? It is difficult to imagine a reason that is worth disabling options for users.

 

Thanks for getting back to me. I hope the feedback makes its way to open ears & minds who can improve on some of these significant feature omissions in the new view. If we have no option but to accept the coming change, it’d be great to be able to continue to do our jobs as efficiently after the change as we were able to prior.

Hi Gregory, I agree qith you in general, but I have to say that it is acually possible to hide any colums, exept index and name, so you should be able to hide the assignee column! The advandage of this colums is that you can use it for sorting and for edititing and copying, so I really like it. But the appearance like in the list view should stay available!

It would be better if we could move the index column. It is of no use to me and simply gets in the way.

Also, I cannot seem to select date ranges using the due date column.

And, it seems the ability to select a group of tasks and change all their statuses at once is no longer present.

Thanks a lot for jumping in Florian Kislich 🤗

Gregory Gulley Thanks for providing more context! Let me address your points 👇

1. You're right it's not possible to move or hide the Row number column, but it's actually needed for the mass actions you mention in your last comments - you can hover your mouse over them and you'll see a checkbox. If you click on it, you'll see the available mass editing options, including mass editing statuses:

2. The assignee field can be removed using the "Fields" menu:

Also, you can narrow the column to just display the profile image, and the table will remember the state, which means the next time you open it, the width of the column will be as you set it up previously:

3. Same goes with any other columns (= fields) - you can adjust their size.

4. Any fields can be hidden through the "Fields" menu:

I hope this is helpful, but please let me know if you have any additional feedback or questions 🙌
