Task - "Header" Fields - Redundant After Creation of Task/Subtask

Hi Team,  Yep, I'm back with more issues with Light Speed.  Screen real-estate, like a 1/4 acre block of land in the middle of Melbourne [AU], comes at a premium price.  

In the case of "Lightspeed" it's worse.

What were the UaT staff thinking when they decided to have this data visible at all times, in particular when all you want are the CUSTOM FIELDS displayed.

In the example above the fields from "Importance" thru "Time Spent" are static data that really does not change for the benefit of anyone using the task day to day.  Maybe fore back end reporting etc.  but 99% of people DON'T need it.  

So this 'real-estate' of 9 x fields is taking up 1/3 of my screen, stolen, and thus I'm missing critical Description Field or  Comment/Event data below.

So, let's try to show less, it works, but then ALL my CFs are also hidden.  

In the screen shot below, there are three toggle items.  Thanks Lightspeed [Not]

[1] Show "More Fields" - shows/hides CFs.  Great.  Very cool tool. [did i really day that - surprise surprise]

[2] "Less >>" Hides CFs and system [9 field] data.  ok, but not ideal.   The "Less" should apply to the SYSTEM 9 fields above.  This is what 99.9% of people would want hidden.   Please correct the logic in this element.

[3] Show fields on side bar.  This just condenses the task/sub-task data even further and puts ALL fields to the side pane[pain].

The logic is just now quite right.

Consider the option [2] above to hide the system data ONLY, and leave the option [1] above "More" to toggle CFs on/off display.

Cheers.

Thank you for another detailed post with your feedback on the Item view Peter Tisdall

Could you tell me if you've tried using custom item types? They allow to customize the view and hide/show specific fields.

Thank you Lisa, but I don't want reports, tables etc.  our work is TASK driven, and WITHIN the task elements or CFs are key.  

St this stage no one can tell me WHY these header fields are not lumped within the typical user interface.  These are BoH (back of house) elements and not needed.  As was the case in the 'pre-lightspeed' interface, they were visible as small elements on the top task ribbon bar.  But they are superfluous in the new design.

Can YOU or Dev team please tell the COMMUNITY why they are not located in the full header screen of each and every task ?

Hi Peter Tisdall, thank you for your reply. Custom item types are task or project-based, which means that you will be accessing your (custom item) tasks directly - not through reports or any other tools. 

Custom item types were designed to provide users with the possibility of rearranging and adjusting items according to their needs. You can even hide system files. Feel free to learn more about this feature here

We appreciate your feedback on this topic as it helps us better understand what other improvements might be necessary. Here is a good example of how we work with your feedback 🙂

Please, let us know if you have any additional questions 👍
