The business requirement that I have is that I need to present the users workload to them.  Am doing this via a single category view embedded onto a page.  First category on the view if the users name, so that is the single category to be displayed.  Unless I do some fancy coding the embedded view opens expanded - not what they want.  This is because Collapse All has the effect of appearing to empty the view. (Credit where its due I have found a workround to this from, thanks Chris) .
The view in question has user name, workflow stage, unit, responsible person as categories.
What we want to be able to do is (a) open it collapsed & (b) open with workflow stage & unit expanded.
So how about enabling us to control whether an embedded single category view opens expaned or collapsed.  Plus lets have the ability to open a view with a number of categories expanded (0,1, or more)  so that we can provide a better user experience.
Lastly, apologies if this has already been posted as a request.  T'internet is not playing at the moment & I'm having trouble opening anything on this site.

If I recall, embedded views on xPages can do this. Check the 8.5 forum -- it's one of the extended properties.

IBM have confirmed that this is fixed in 8.5. (I tried reporting as a bug too.)
They plan to add to 8.03 release.
They plan to add to 7.04 release.

The fix is in the client. For me thats important as it means I have to plan to package up a new client & install on the Citrix servers once the appropriate release is available.
