It's not just all expanded vs all collapsed.
The nature of the grouped view in NEW vs OLD TrackVia is completely changed. In the new version, you have headers repeating in each group, you only do calcuations (such as sum totals) within the group but not for the entire list of records ...
... and not only are you repeating headers, but you repeat footers for each group -- so the overall effect is really awful from a UX design perspective. If I compare old vs new view in my test app, in the new view, on the first page (i.e. above the fold), of 22 rows of visual stuff, only 5 rows are my actual DATA. So what you're looking at is 78% "chrome" and 12% my data (i.e. the stuff that's actually important).
As opposed to the same thing in the OLD view style: of 25 rows of stuff, 16 is my data. So 36% chrome, 64% my data.
It's all a wee bit maddening.David Zarnitzky shared this idea ·
