Some tree items in Maps can not be expanded



Some items in the Tree view in Maps are collapsed and I can't figure out how to expand them. Example in this image: https://thegowschool-my.sharepoint.com/:i:/g/personal/jpoblocki_gow_org/EbNvjCtwHuVOuopOj5McI-MBNoVWstu2TQIln_QURiuUHg?e=aDdnV7

Hi there,

The Treemap Objects in the Maps are depending on the current treeview under "Devices". There is no functionality to expand/collapse the devices/groups in the maps. We currently have an internal ticket to add this functionality, but when it will arrive is unknown as it needs a bigger rewrite.

Best rregards.

Seems like it's still not possible. Are there any news?

Hello Timo,

No. While it was unclear back at Dariusz's response, I can tell that it is expected behavior and I don't expect it to be changed in foreseeable future. The reason is that we look into a new, more modern map designer at present.
