    Agreed.ย  We have LOTS of folders and projects within them.ย  Scrolling up to close all of them in the left navigation bar is distracting.ย  Wrike - Can you fix this?ย  UpVote!

    Absolutely a big yes from me. ย Iโ€™ve been suggesting this for over a year. Itโ€™s the major drawback of the system and makes using the dashboard frustrating and slow. The button would need to be at the top near the search bar so it doesnโ€™t disappear when a lot open. It could also be an option via mouse right click in that area.

    Agreed. We would definitely appreciate being able to collapse the folder structure instead of collapsing individual folders and sub-folders. Up-voted.

    I have been asking for this for YEARS!ย  ย I don't understand why it's not a simple thing toย do...As the owner of a software development company, it still baffles me. It'sย VERY time consuming to have to go and open dozens of subfolders every time it resets to collapsed.

    As well, why can't we expand all comments in a task string as opposed to having to click "more updates" over and over and over again?!ย Thisย is such basic stuff and while I love Wrike for forging ahead to add awesome and complex features, the fact that some of the most fundamental functions have been ignored is frustrating...

    Yes please! What would be best for me is if the app would just leave the folders in the state that I lastย used them - either open or closed.ย  I've got so many projects that its time consuming to collapse the ones I don't need at the moment. This is also true for folders in the Gannt chart view.

    Another upvote... we're in the deployment process now, and having to manually expand every folder/subfolder to ensure we've got consistency is quite tedious.

    Giving this one a big up-vote! Definitely would be helpful to be able and collapse-all so you can look at the top level folders in the folder tree.

    Another upvote. We are finding it frustrating to have to keep collapsing individual Space and folders from our pre-existing structure every time someone refreshes the page.ย

    @Tania Hi, thanks for bumping this thread! I think it's a great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    It's not on the Product roadmap at the moment; please ๐Ÿ‘ the idea - the more votes it gets, the more likely it is that the Product team will consider it. Please check out this post for info on Product Feedback Statuses.

    Happy posting!

    I would like the expansion settings to be SAVEABLE. I dont want to open all my folders or close them with individual clicks - we have too many! i just want to have a couple of them open at a certain time and Id like to be able to save those settings so i dont have to close a hundred folders every time to see the ones i want. This is something that any basic user would find irritating and quite frankly the fact that there are people that recommended changes more than two years ago appears to show that WRIKE isnt being very responsive when it comes to the feedback. Its taken almost two years to even put this on the "product roadmap"? That's pretty poor considering the first feedback on this issue came at the beginning of 2018! There are now a number of programs that do what WRIKE does so they certainly aren't indispensable as a product.ย

    Please add feature! We have over 700 users and over 10K folders and projects. This would be a huge time saver and help with load times.
