Expand subitems as default view

Is there a way to keep subitems expanded when navigating away from a board and then returning? Seems like there should be a default setting or a view that could be saved to avoid having to re-expand every time.


YES! I just came on here to look for the answer to this question. Almost all of our boards have subitems and it is frustrating and a waste of time each time we reopen a board to have to go in and click each item to expand each group of subitems! I am hoping someone has a soluation!


Hey @nasmith and @destinygozero! Thanks for posting about this :slight_smile:

I can definitely understand how it would be helpful to leave subitems expanded and would prevent unnecessary clicks/re-expansion. I would recommend posting feature request for this here! Feature requests/feedback - monday Community

It is a bummer that we can not expand all subitems as a view. Is this feature being added? Or is there a workaround?

Please add this feature. I have over 100 items on a board, each with subitems, and I want to be able to scan through all subitems as tasks as an option on a board.

Yes please! Upvote! We have opening checklist for our clinic managers and need to make it as easy as possible. Using a seperate column for each task wasn’t feasible (due to the volume of tasks)

Yes please! My team1 have to generate 5-10 items a day, and team 2~4 should open each 30-50 subtaasks a day. What a loss!

This is driving me absolutely nuts as there isn’t even a clear visual indicator that your item has any subitems so I keep thinking I’ve forgotten to add sub-items and then realising I have already. Please add this!!!

It’s been a year since this was mentioned, just set the sub tasks as expanded by default instead of the opposite!

@TWX Hi. Can you kindly advise where on Monday.com I have to go to set the sub tasks to be expanded by default?

New to the community too. Did this get added as a feature?

No, not that I’m aware of :frowning: This is a big inconvenience.

Please, add this feature. This would literally be a reason why we decide to choose another product for our team. I have too many projects I manage to have to expand the sub-items every time I log in or refresh or change anything.

@TRB-monday.com is there an update? It’s been over a year now.

Hey @TRB-monday.com , adyen really needs this to improve internal communications
