How can I make the Subtask Filter "Hide Done" in the new Issue Detail view default?

Hey there!


I have some big Issues with lot's of Subtasks to handle at the moment. There is this nice and option to "Hide Done" Subtasks which helps seeing what is still open while grooming the backlog.

The thing is, that this is by default off. Is there a way to configure this as default on?

Would love this feature aswell

Yes, please! :)

I would like this feature too.

Definitely, there should be a way, how to make "hide done" persistent. At least make it "sticky" - when set on particular issue, keep that for that user.

Agree, that it is annoying to have to hide them each time manually.

Any news here? Truly annoying ;(

Hello @Tiedemann Marc 

Currently it's not possible, please see the open ticket here

The issue described in the ticked actually works already. But only if there are open and closed issues in the list. Like you see in my screenshot. There is the option to "Hide done".

My question is regarding if we can set this filter as default enabled somewhere in the settings? 


So it does not always first load all subtasks but only the open ones. This would increase loading times drasticly.

Hello @Tiedemann Marc 

If I select this option "Show Open" for the sub-tasks of the user-story then this option is persisted if I open other stories in the "old issue view". But in the project level, I don't see an option to persist this across the project or at a global level.

@Tiedemann Marc I too would like to see this feature! Very annoying at meetings to have to always Hide the subtasks every time I open the Issue.


Would love this feature aswell!

hide done default.. why do I need to click this 500 times a day?

"Hide done" totally needs to be made sticky. Super annoying when updating tickets.

Please make it a feature! Ticking "Hide done" 500 times per day is very tiring :)

Should be the default

This would be a very welcome customer satisfaction feature.  The need to scroll and click twice to trim the story to only remaining work every time you open a story is the definition of Toil.  It doesn't take too long, and I do it mindlessly, but the number of times I do it a day adds up quickly.

I vote for that as well!

Why would hide done not be the default???  (This to me is not so much a feature enhancement as an error in the UI)

And some goes for me as well.

There is a ticket regarding this (needs to be voted up I guess)
Make the "Hide Done sub-tasks" option permanent

How hard can it be to make it configurable?

I want this too.  This is horribly irratating.

Yes, I too want this

hello, throwing my hat in the ring. would really love this enhancement pls.

Any update on this? I agree this is really annoying, if we are looking through stories we have to redo the setting everytime we open a new (or previously opened) story

I vote for that as well!

This would be a very helpful feature if the existing filter would simply stay applied when I refresh the page.
