Expand / collapse All eSpace Elements

Service Studio
Not right now

Every time I publish a given eSpace, I make sure that all elements across Service Studio have been properly collapsed so that any other developer that comes across that eSpace will find it as I would like to.


This forces me to run across Processes, Interface, Logic, and Data to make sure everything is collapsed.

It would be nice to have an option, to collapse everything before we hit Publish.

Hey André,

Do you know that you can use CTRL+Click to expand/collapse all the child elements in trees?

With a single click you can expand the full tree.

Cheers,

Changed the category to Service Studio


I Vasco.


Yes, I am aware of that. What I meant, however, is a similar functionality but for all elements across Processes, Interface, Logic, and Data.

Changed the status to

Hey André,

Although this might save you some clicks, this use case is not that common and doing it automatically would possibly annoy several other users.

Because for this, we don't have plans to this in the short term.

Keep the ideas coming!

Hi Vasco.


Thank you for the reply.


About this idea, my intention is to have this automatically applied to all publications. That indeed would be kind of annoying for some developers.


I meant it just to be available, that´s all.


Kind regards



Merged this idea with 'Right click on an element and expand/compress all subelements in the tree' (created on 21 Dec 2018 10:05:44 by Nordin Ahdi)

Problem:

Sometimes you open up your eSpace in Service Studio and you see that a lot of elements in trees of one of the Application Layer Tabs are expanded. This normally results in you clicking on a lot of small arrows to compress the subelements. If you have a lot of elements (f.e. flows, webscreens, (input)variables, (screen)actions, entities) , this would slow you down in finding the right one you want to work on.

Idea:

In order to speed up drilling down to a specific element (Action/(Input)Variable/Entity etc.) in the tree, I would love to be able to right click an element (f.e. a Flow element) and expand/compress all subelements (f.e. webscreens with their actions and variables).

In addition, right clicking on the eSpace itself and having an option (underneath "Remove Unused Dependencies") to "expand/compress all elements" would make a developers' life easier in my opinion. Especially being able to compress all elements would keep the Application Layer Tab nice and tidy and a good starting point for your drill down to the element you're looking for.

Feedback:

I would love to know what you all think of this idea!


Kind regards,
Nordin

Hey Nordin,

Thanks for your idea!

This was already reported with some variations.  Do you know that you can use CTRL+Click to expand/collapse all the child elements in trees?

https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/11/Getting_Started/Service_Studio_Tips_and_Tricks#Expanding_and_collapsing_trees

I'll merge the idea with a similar one

Hi Vasco,

Thanks! I didn't know about the CTRL+Click option!

Merged this idea with 'Collapse/Expand all actions, screens, entities, etc.' (created on 29 May 2019 12:36:01 by Ricardo Monteiro)

There should be some keyboard shortcut to collapse or expand all actions, screens, entities, etc. inside an espace or between Processes, Interface, Logic or Data tabs.

Sometimes it's not easy to navigate between tabs when we work with many actions and leave them open. Would be nice to have this in Service Studio.
