User story

As a PRTG user, I want to be able to quickly expand or collapse all or some of my device tree.

Details of user story

In order to drill down to certain devices which require a lot of nesting in our device trees we frequently have to click + to expand parts of the device tree. This tends to leave us with a lot of expanded sections in our device tree. When we then scroll up/down in our view it tends to get somewhat cluttered, with some sections expanded and other collapsed.

It would be excellent to add an option to the right click menu to "Expand/Collapse" a section. In our view this would then expand or collapse all sub-sections.


Right click on "Root" -> "Expand" option: This expands all collapsed sections under "Root" Right click on "Root" -> "Collapse" option: This collapses all expanded sections under "Root" Right click on "Root -> Local Probe -> Training" -> "Expand" option: This expands all sections under our "Training" group

Acceptance criteria

Ability to quickly expand and collapse all or part of the device tree.
