Grid nesting Totals & stay at top


#1

Hi,
It would beneficial to have totals to appear at the top of each hierarchy node once the user has expanded. At the moment when you click on the “+”, you lose the visibility of the total at the top i.e.:
Collapsed Hierarchy:

  • Node 1 | 100
  • Node 2 | 300
  • Node 3 | 500

When user expands:

  • Node 1 | 100
  • Node 2
    + Subnode1 | 150
    + Subnode2 | 75
    + Subnode3 | 75
  • Node 3 | 500

Notice that Node 2 line has no totals, so its difficult for the end user to see the overall total once expanded.

Also, it would be advantageous that once the node is expanded, the totals remain at the top when the user scrolls. So if there were 50 subnodes, Node2 and its totals would remain at the top as the user scrolls down.

Thanks,

Jon

HI @JonKemp,

One of the reasons the feature was originally designed without subtotals was in preparation for a potential future improvement - in-line charts (which might look something like the attached image).

Our research showed that the charts were simpler and easier to interpret without the subtotal.

HI @Tim.Leonard ,

I am not seeing the attached images, they appear to be broken?

Thanks,

Oops - can you try again? thanks.

Thanks @Tim.Leonard,

I will pass this feedback to the end user. As they are finance orientated, I may be back as they are numbers people. I like the inline charts approach, but would be nice to have a switch to provide both options?

When will inline make its debut?

Regards,

Jon

@JonKemp inline charts are still in the design stage - they haven’t been placed onto the road map yet, so I unfortunately don’t have a specific release date.
