Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

Allow incomplete response hierarchy in views (Category: Make classic applications great again)

Some time you need to display responses in their response hierarchy but do NOT show the main document of a thread in the same view. This is currently impossible to do. Examples would be: Show all responses to the chosen main document in an embedded view but in correct hierarchy. 

I will try to clarify this: 

Today it is easily possible to make a view look like this ( \/ = Open Twisty, > = Closed Twisty): 

\/ Main Document 1

\/ -- Response Document 1

----Response to Response Document

> -- Response Document 2

\/ -- Response Document 3

----Response to Response Document 3

> Main Document 2

 

Main documents and the complete Response Hierarchy are collapsable.

If I now want to have an embedded view within the Main- document, then I ALWAYS have to include the Main document itself in the view. But I would like to create a view that looks like this:

\/ -- Response Document 1

----Response to Response Document

> -- Response Document 2

\/ -- Response Document 3

----Response to Response Document 3

But today as soon as you exclude the main documents from the view, it will not show ANY document anymore if response hierarchy is enabled...

 

EDIT: There IS an option for this in the view properties (information tab) called "Show Partial response hierarchies". But this option is Eclipse- only. And I want to have this for "normal" views as well.

    You can use main document instead of response. You still need to maintain the parent / child relationship manually but it should be possible to show all the child of a parent in an embedded view.

    Yes, but then you loose the possibility to open / close the trees with Twisties: You cannot make a non- hierarchy- view collapsable (yes, you can use categoires, but that is not the same)

    Could you perhaps attach a picture to explain how you wanted the view to look like ? I am a bit confused since your idea mention displaying response without their parent docs but your comment mention twisties (which only display if parent docs are displayed).

    THAT is exacty the problem: You cannot have twisties / collapsible views without a view hierarchy. But that only works if you show the complete hierarchy. Check the edit in my post to make it clear
