This is my first time on stack exchange so please excuse me if I've posted this in the wrong place, tagged it incorrectly, or missed anything else. And although I feel that I know civiCRM fairly well, I'm not at all a computer whiz, so forgive me if my tech language/terms aren't accurate. :)

Here goes... is it possible yet to collapse a set of built in/core fields, via the UI? I know how to do it for custom fields, but it'd be really helpful if I could do it for sets when I'm adding a contribution, for example.

I found this topic on the civiCRM Community Forum from 2012... https://forum.civicrm.org/index.php?topic=26273.0

Sounds like Lobo thought it would be a good little project, but I haven't found any updates.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

UPDATE: Specifically, when recording a New Contribution, I'd like to collapse the Soft Credit fieldset, and expand the Additional Contribution Info fieldset. It would speed up my data entry if I didn't have to tab through the fields within Soft Credit or reach for my mouse to expand the Additional Contribution Info section.

  • Good first question :) Could you be a little more specific about what fields exactly you'd like to do this to? Maybe a screenshot of them?

  • What about your programming skills? Are you able to set up a little extension with a javascript file and collapse what you need to collapse?

  • Unfortunately my programming skills are non-existent. However... I do have a guy. I will pass your note onto him. Thanks.
