Hide 'Uncategorised' column in Kanban view if no uncategorised records

Wow. No Airtable response to this thread for over a year. I would love to see this too. Assumed it was a setting I was missing

Still no hide functionality. Pathetic they can’t add such a simple and highly requested feature.

Absolute joke! Still no fix. Why can’t I just delete or completely hide it? So strange and unnecessary. Renders the Kansan view completely useless for my work.

And at least allow uncategorized to go sidewise on IPad Pro. Not sure why we can’t get a response from developers. . .

Agree with everything Jamie said.

The ability to filter and customize the Kanban view (including the columns themselves) seems like such a no-brainer. Would love to at least understand why this hasn’t been addressed in nearly five years.

Is it a technical challenge? A little hard to believe – if columns can be collapsed, surely they can be hidden.

Is there something in Kanban philosophy we’re all missing that says you must have the Uncategorized column and it must be to the left of everything?

Interestingly: Asana has the exact same problem. You can move sections around, but can’t hide them. Wonder if they’re all working from the same codebase :laughing:

This made me laugh so hard! I don’t mean to give anyone a hard time - but five years into a conversation about the inability to rename or delete the “uncategorized” column has produced some cracking banter.

+1 for hiding uncategorized AND being able to hide columns/lists by filtering that status (or category). Is anyone at Airtable going to let us know if this is ever going to happen?

Please Airtable team can you add the ability hide/filter out uncategorized. It’s such a crucial feature.

+1 So many times we have empty stacks that just need to be hidden. Please.

+1 Need the ability to hide Uncategorized completely. To have a default column appear when there are no uncategorized records is simply unnacceptable. Please AT deal with this issue in the Kanban view. Thanks

+1 The people have spoken, and we want to hide stacks! This is a huge issue and it’s making people turn to Trello.

Meep Meep! :raising_hand_woman: Adding another +1 for the option to hide categories in a shared view, or at least hide the
default Uncategorized section when it contains no entries. Thanks!

Adding another +1 for this. This is one of the main reasons I am considering other solutions like Coda. It’s pretty surprising that this has been an issue going on four years now…

I’d like to throw in my request for this functionality as well. I’m not like, angry, about it or anything. But I have 0 desire to see that “Uncategorized” column (and would prefer to make it impossible not to have a category, supplying a default instead).
