Disabled containers can still be expanded

Most of the time I use containers to help structure and layout my workflow, as well as then enabling or disabling different parts of it. It would be nice however to still see the tools within a disabled container but have the container greyed out or hashed out?

Agreed, would be nice to enable/disable workflows seperately from minimizing/expanding them.

Thank you for the idea and feedback!


We really appreciate all the UX feedback we get on how we can improve the canvas experience for all our users, especially the recent surge of UX ideas across the idea boards that I'm seeing.


If you haven't be sure to like any other ideas that you would find helpful as it helps our product team gauge interest and impact.

Status changed to: Implemented

Thank you for suggesting this! Containers can now be disabled without being collapsed starting in the 21.3 release.

Just some additional feedback - It would be nice to also have the option to collapse disabled containers.  Perhaps I can do this now in 2021.3?
