    Hi Michael

    thank you for your message.

    You are correct, the current logic is designed so that each report reflects the level of detail of the drill downs as they are displayed on the screen when you do the export. It is designed like this in order to give more granular control over what Work Items should be included in the report. That being said, I fully agree that the current implementation is not ideal for those who just want to get an export of all levels/hierarchies.

    I also really like your suggestion to add an expand-all / collapse-all button to improve this experience, so I added this to our backlog (ID: #34428 ). I don't have an ETA for this yet however we will keep everyone updated on this thread. 

    Thank-you again for your feedback!

    Have a good weekend,

    Hi Andrea,

    Just checking in on this item. Every week when I have to manually expand about 40 nodes I think of the existing experience ADO gives in all their backlogs with the little + and - buttons!! :)

    Thanks!!

    Hi Michael,

    we were discussing this just yesterday. We haven't got around working on it yet because although on paper this looks like a simple UI improvement there are some technical implications which we need to consider. Namely, there is a concern around the load on our backend if a user expands a list  with many items at once. With that in mind we are wondering whether in cases like yours getting access to the data directly via API may be a better way to go about this, providing this is an acceptable solution for the majority of our users. Bottom line, we need to do a bit more research on this before we agree on the best way forward. In the meantime if you have any thoughts about this please feel free to let us know!

    Kind Regards,

    Andrea
