🧹 Keep your project tidy with auto-archive

As long-lived projects accumulate items over time, many users set aside time to archive old items to keep their projects focused on what matters most. Today we are introducing the public beta of a new workflow to archive items automatically so that you can get back to the things that matter!

Configure which items you’d like to archive by heading to the Workflow page, selecting Auto-archive items, and updating the filter. We support is, reason, and last-updated, and you can verify archived items by copying the filter query into a table view.

Set it up today to spend less time on pruning projects and let us know what you think in Discussions!

⚙️ Configure board column visibility

In addition to auto-hiding board columns with filters to customize your view, you can now hide a column directly from the column menu to populate the filter bar and configure which board columns are visible.

This can also be configured through the + menu, so you can now easily toggle which columns are shown or hidden on the view in addition to adding a new column.

✨ Bug fixes & improvements

Other changes include:

  • Adding hovercard functionality for links in the side panel
  • Fixed a bug that didn’t allow for assignees to be copy/pasted into a field for draft issues
