I was in communication with Syntevo support regarding the ability to collapse folders. And through the use cases we discussed, one of the reasons I cited why collapsing would be helpful is the ability to stage a folder. The example is you have a folder with sub folders and files. There are a large number of files. You are determining which folders and files you want. But because there is no collapsing, there is a lot of clutter.
More importantly and the basis of the Header is that if you want to Stage a folder and all it's contents, there is no easy means to do this. In the Repository view, right click does not give an option to Stage. The tool bar for Stage is also dimmed. The only way to do this is to select all of the files in the File view.
Support suggested I open a RFE for this.
