Feature request: Flattened row headers, mass expand/collapse hierarchy
See picture for reference.
I have a need that could be described two different ways (or maybe it is two different needs). I would like for there to be a way to flatten row hierarchies similar to the flat form layout option but only applying to the row headers. A visual example from Tableau is here
I know that OLAP cubes are not designed to display flat table data in this way, but the performance of your component is so good you don’t seem to have a problem dealing with it. By supporting it solves other reporting needs. It really becomes a user experience pain to click expand on every row to make the nested data display. Ideally there is a view option that flattens this data out similar to flat form, but then I find myself often wanting to expand an entire hierarchy level and not wanting to click on each row to do it. A right click on row header menu option to expand all / collapse all could possibly meet both needs.
Thank you for writing.
Currently, we don’t have flattened row headers. We can suggest a way to mass expand/collapse hierarchy. Please check JSFiddle demo with added right-click to expand all / collapse all: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/9feqzm1m/
You have mentioned that such right-click could possibly meet both needs. Please let me know what you think.
That will work for me. This seems like a common need and I’m surprised it isn’t core.
