1 the accordion is a web trick to hide/show information. FM is not web software except to publish layouts via Web Direct.
2 there are interface tricks in FM to show menus/lists in a hierarchical fashion with hide/show toggles.
3 there are interface objects and functionality to show/hide objects on a FileMaker layout.
Do you have examples of what you would like the do?

Thank you for your post.
I'm not familiar with a method for doing this (it's not a standard feature of FileMaker Pro), but (as beverly suggested) I am going to move this thread from the FileMaker Community Feedback Space, which is specifically for input on the Community itself, to the Discussions Space where you should receive more views and potentially more feedback on this topic!
You should look at the techniques used in the demo file used in this video.
Desigining in tight spaces from Devcon
He has a few tricks you can use using layout parts to simulate an accordion setup.
Yes, after the 42 minute mark Matt Petrowsky shows his accordion implementation.
I will look into that, it looks promising. Ideally the user would be able to have multiple panels open simultaneously, like here: Buy iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus - Apple
But I am asking too much.
