Expand/Collapse All Envelopes

To have a Expand All and Collapse all when in Envelopes Summary page. The idea is to have easy access of envelope information. Currently when you have many categories of envelopes, you still have to individually expand the category to view the envelopes under it. A one click Expand All or Collapse All link would come in very handy.

Hi Karim,

Thanks for the suggestion. At the moment you can set all your Envelope groups to be expanded by default. To do so, head over to My Account>Household Preferences and choose to "Keep Envelope Groups Open."

But you're right, an option to expand or close all on the Envelope Overview page might be handy for some users. I'll add that to our requested features tracker, thanks!

It seems the preference option for this has changed, and it sounds like the behavior has changed as well.

Under My Household>Household Preferences, I see an option "View Envelope Groups", which I'm guessing enables/disables them entirely.

I use this feature extensively so I have a lot of groups. What I really want is to have them either collapsed by default (maybe the old default behavior?), or a way to quickly collapse them all.

This would REALLY help for demo'ing the product to my friends. If I show them what I currently have-- 44 envelopes in 10+ groups-- they're *not* going to understand why this makes me feel LESS overwhelmed and MORE in control of what's happening. Viewing only the top-level groups though, it looks very manageable, and expanding those groups is more of a "drilling down" operation.

Hi Stephen, 

Thanks for the feedback and suggestion! You're right that un-checking the 'View Envelope Groups' box will entirely disable that feature. 

I can see why having a 'Collapse All' button (or collapsed by default) would make GB seem more manageable when showing others. I've added your thoughts to our request features tracker for future consideration.

To clarify, we don't have plans to work on this now. Feel free to check out our Roadmap to stay updated with what we are working on. 

Thanks!

Rather than collapsed by default I would prefer the ability for the software to remember the last screen session so that when loaded it remembers which groups were collapsed and which were not. A collapse/open all button would be useful as well.
