Working with a Tablix where you are setting the Row or Column Visibility of a Row Group or Column Group, you have a couple of options:
First is a radio button selection with three choices: Show, Hide, and "Show or Hide based on an expression". This last option, though very powerful, is difficult to understand and can be make 100% more clear to the developer simply by changing the verbiage in the dialog box. There is no indication what the expression must equal, should it be "Show", should it be "Hide", should it be True or False, and if so, True = what? Show it or Hide it? 

The second option is the "toggle item". This is a list of ALL Objects on the report, with no real discernible sort order, grouping, or any logic that I can see.

THREE YEARS ago the comment came back from Microsoft that they were not going to fix this. Yet here it is three years later and the item is still listed as "ACTIVE".

Honestly, Microsoft, when you add a comment like that, TAKE SOME ACTION on the item, mark it as "Won't Fix" so I can figure out what to concentrate on.

Side note: All that this entails is some re-wording on the user interface. That's IT. Change a LABEL for crying out loud.

Thank you for submitting this feedback. After carefully evaluating all of the suggestion items in our pipeline, we are closing items that we will not implement in the near future due to current higher priority items. We will re-evaluate the closed suggestions again in the future based on the product roadmap.
Thanks again for providing the product suggestion and continued support for our product.
