Allow “Mass Collapse” of all parent tasks that are 100% complete

Allow “Mass Collapse” of all parent tasks that are 100% complete

We have large projects that can be thousands of lines long. As a general rule, there is not a daily need to look at the fine details of completed work. I can spend many minutes collapsing all completed tasks to whittle down to a view that shows me the remaining work. Given that workfront does not save the state of my collapsed tasks, I have to do this over and over again throughout the project in order to make the project readable (and speed up the display). I don’t want to use a filter to remove completed tasks as it is beneficial to see tasks in the context of the whole project. It would be nice to have a ‚Äòmass collapse’ feature that allows me to one-click collapse all parent tasks at 100% complete.

Our task lists are much shorter, so I never would have thought of this kind of "auto collpase"...and wow, what a great idea and a nice QoL suggestion!

While I do not work with thousands of lines of tasks like Scott, my studio adds multiple batches of tasks over time and this feature would definitely be helpful in keeping our projects cleaner. As batches are completed we could collapse select groups of tasks to leave the focus on the current/open tasks only. Would love to see an option for this implemented!

Just an FYI - this can currently be accomplished by using a Filter called "Incomplete Tasks" or whatever you want to call it. The Text Mode code for it is:


statusEquatesWith=CPL

statusEquatesWith_Mod=ne


I think this accomplishes what you're asking (unless there's a piece I'm missing).
