How to expand all issues from List View

This morning my team-managed business project view expanded all issue types:

Now, it's collapsing all as I open the list view:

I haven't changed any settings. All of a sudden, it's just collapsing by epics. How can I change this back so that the default view is an expanded view?

Hi @Victoria Inman , I have been attempting, unsuccessfully, to default to an expanded view of issues under the list view. I assume that is the view you are looking at?

Hi @Jack Brickey 

Yes, that's what I'm trying to do, and the view worked for me this morning and all of a sudden for no apparent reason, it has changed. Thoughts?

Hi @Jane Yeoh - Did something change with being able to save the expanded view? 

Jack Brickey Community Leader Jun 08, 2022

@John M Funk , how do you save expanded view. I have not found any means of doing so.

@Victoria Inman , I have never opened the list view where it was expanded. I have had to expand after opening the view. With that said I have not used the list view much.

John M Funk Community Leader Jun 08, 2022

I think that's the point - you can't save the view where you left it the last time.

Ok that is consistent with my findings/understanding.

For the last 2 weeks I've been using this list view and it's never defaulted to a collapsed view of epics. Only today did the change take place. It's not useful and I'd like it to go back. Was wondering if anyone had a solution to it.

Maybe contact Atlassian Support for input? I guess it is possible that a change was rolled out changing the behavior.

Hi @Victoria Inman ,

Thanks for reaching out. It looks like the view you are seeing now is the nested view (Epics > Tasks > Subtasks) which we recently shipped while in your previous view, you were seeing Epics and their tasks un-nested. 

We are working on a quick expand all/collapse all capability so you can choose if your view is expanded or not. This will take a few weeks for us to implement, so we thank you for your patience while we work on this!
