Structure of Structures - no data just an index with link to the relevant structure
I would like to create a Structure of Structures for structure navigation, whereby specific child elements allow you open the referenced structure. I have many structures that contain the same data, just displayed differently for different user groups.
The use case is in essence:
Parent - Folder (a name listing a group of similar or related structures)
Child - New Structure Link - simply a mechanism to either open or navigate to the referenced structure - includes description.
Is it possible to add a new Structure element into the "Add" Dropdown called "New Structure Link". (i.e. New Issue, New Folder, New Memo, New Structure Link) allows the building of an index structure.
First iteration could allow manual creation only, but with use of metadata in future could allow auto generation.
Check the comment, please

Thank you for your request! We already have functionality which can help you: Structure Inserter (https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Structure+Inserter) which allows you to add one structure into another. So, you can add a folder and the structure in it, to be able to collapse-expand issues from another Structure.
Also, please check the quick transformation feature: it allows you to save the filter/grouping/etc., so you can see the structure from different perspectives, https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Quick+Transformations
Hope this helps,
ALM Works team.
