Grouping: indicate whether the results of a grouping should be collapsed or expanded using text mode

You can indicate whether the results in a grouping should display collapsed or expanded in a list or report by using the standard report builder. The results in a grouping display expanded, by default. For information about creating a grouping, see Create groupings in Adobe Workfront.

  • When you manually adjust groupings when viewing a list, Adobe Workfront remembers your manual preference until you log out. When you log back in, the list displays according to this setting.
  • The results of a grouping always display expanded after accessing them from a chart element.

You can also indicate whether a grouping should display expanded or collapsed using text mode.
