Open Approval Process Overview with expanded tree


i want the approval process overview to open with an expanded tree to see all steps without clicking the little arrow.

Many users don´t see the little arrow in sequence column to expand the tree.

Any ideas how to do it?

Best regards,

    one year is gone and i still have the request to expand the tree initially.

    When i open the tab "approval process overview" in a shopping cart, i want that the tree is expanded initially. At the moment i have to click on every arrow to expand it.

    I try to set the context attribute ITM_STATUS-EXPANDED with wddoinit, but it didn´t works.

    Any ideas?

    Best regards,

      Doing this change in WDDOMODIFYVIEW may introduce other problems like following:

      1. User sees the expanded view of the tree but then suppose he wants collapse one of the nodes. If he collapses the node and wddomodifyview is called, then it will get expanded again due to your code.

      you may check this scenario once.

    Are you talking about the approval preview in the portal?
