Is it possible to hide or minimize certain columns on the Agile Board, just for my own view?

My team uses a 7-column format for our Agile Boards, which can cause the text on the individual cards to become truncated or mangled. On most days I only really use the first 3-4 columns anyway, so it would be great if I could hide or minimize the last three columns just in my browser without actually altering the project's settings, which obviously would disrupt my coworkers.

Hi @Shaun T Smith,

I use JavaScript like you see below to make my Closed column disappear.

This first block is my bookmarklet:

javascript: (function () { var jsCode = document.createElement('script'); jsCode.setAttribute('src', ''); document.body.appendChild(jsCode); }());


This is what I store in a file located at :

javascript: (function() {
var closedColumnNameParent = $('h2:contains("Closed")').parent();
var closedColumnID = closedColumnNameParent.attr('data-id');
