Hide middle Section & automated change of Context

(1) Is it possible to hide the middle part (see picture)?

If not, I don’t find the favorites convenient compared to task field (always visible).

(2) Is it possible to change contexts automatically (triggered by date)? For instance, waiting for could change at a specific date, because you need to follow up on it, as you haven’t heard back yet.

Some thoughts about that?

Greetings

Not really an answer, but I personally use due dates for this so it turns up in Forecast view.

Makes sense! I am just afraid that I clutter my forecast view.

I personally give it the context it will be, such as “calls” or a person-specific context, and then put a defer date on it. When I’m just working it stays out of my attention unless time has passed. When I get calls and I’m seeing if there is anything else I want to talk about, I look at remaining tasks in my scan so I can pick that sort of deferred task up.
