Always expand expression in formula tool

When we edit formula tool, only first expression is expanded. I prefer all expressions are expanded as a default. When I want to shrink them, I want to 'expand all' icon like attached snap shot. This icon is toggled same as each expression's expand icon('expand all' <-> 'shrink all')

HI All, 


I look forward to the Alteryx Keyboard shortcut for expanding all columns with Formula, instead of doing it manually as like present. 


Thank you

Status changed to: Revisit

This is not approved for the short term, but we will revisit this in the future.

Status changed to: Under Review

Designer Product team is currently investigating inclusion of this idea in conjunction with other requested new functions for the Formula tool... Stay tuned!



Status changed to: Implemented

Ability to expand all/collapse all formulas has been added to the Formula tool as of Designer version 2022.3! You'll see the new toggle in the upper left corner next to Output Column header that will allow you to quickly expand all or collapse all formulas. Happy Alteryx-ing!
