New Board View - Collapsing Status Field

I will assume the answer to be yes :)

Will the new board view have (and if yes, then when) the same functionality as the old board view where one could collapse a particular status in order to reduce the space taken by having the category showing?  For example, I want the ability to move an active task to the completed status, but I don't want / need to see the tasks in the Completed status.  Having to keep it open clutters the view, draws attention to tasks that don't need it, etc.

I may as well continue my feedback here 😀

Also, I'm not a fan of the new split pane behavior.  I have to keep my Board View in full screen (34" monitor) to be able to see all of the (non-collapsed status fields).  Previously, when I clicked on a task, the details appeared in a pop up in the center of my screen and then disappeared when I clicked anywhere behind the popped-open task.

Now, when you click on a task, the task details pane opens persistently and requires you to move your mouse to the very upper right-hand portion of the screen to a tiny X to get rid of it.  It might be tolerable, since I am blessed with a big monitor, to leave it open at all times, but I can't since I need the full screen to see all of my statuses.  If, pertaining to my original post, I was able to collapse statuses, then leaving the pane open all the time would be tolerable.

I like the new format and flexibility but feel like it's come at an efficiency cost for the end-users' interactions with the data (so far)

I agree on this point by Lena. I don't like that you can't collapse the fields down smaller. With most workflows, there are too many columns to show on the screen and you have to scroll back and forth. This is very inefficient; enough so that it doesn't make this view worth the effort for me at this time. Bring back the collapse and it would be better.

Thanks for the comment Jason Pontius.  I've continued using the view, but I have to use every inch of my 34" monitor and collapse the navigation pane!  I do really like the "time in status" option and that you can expand and collapse subtasks.  I'm hoping they intend to bring back collapsing the workflows soon as it will make the view perfect for me!

1,000% YES! Please give us the ability to collapse columns in the new Board view, just like the classic view allows us to do! Just discovered this missing feature yesterday when a coworker and I were trying to set up a new workflow for a new process. There are statuses/columns we need as part of this new workflow, but some of them will rarely be used so we would like to hide them to reduce clutter, but they still need to be there for the full process to visualize reality for the team + leaders. :) Thank you!

I also just noticed that when you do click on a card and have the details come up on the right, you cannot scroll the board on the left. As soon as you click on the scroll bar the details pane goes away. So it's impossible to scroll across the board while a card is open for editing. This is not workable.
