Truncate Member Type list into a Dropdown Menu

My Directory is for a Church, which has branches in different places listed below:

– Ikoyi
— Greater Lekki
— Maryland
— Ogba
— Ikorodu
— Abuja
— Ibeju Lekki
– Epe
— Ikeja
— SangoTedo
— Festac
— Delta/Asaba
— Owerri/Imo

If I am to list all of these Member Types as Directory Views on the Members Page, it will be so long that the Page cannot contain all of them.

Then on Mobile, it will be so long, that it will take a lot of scrolling down before a User will be able to see the website's Members, as you can see here--

This will be a very bad User Experience.

What I believe should be done, is to:

There should be a Global Setting in BuddyPress Member Types, that allows us to truncate the Member Type on the Directory Page at a certain number of Member Type, into a Dropdown Menu.

What I mean is this: I can't list all my Member Types on the Directory view.

There should be a Member Type General Setting in BuddyPress that says "Truncate into a Dropdown".

Then "Number to truncate".

If I add a number, let's say 3. Then it will list only 3 Member Types, and others will be wrapped into a Dropwdown Menu.

See a sample here--

Now, Youzify has a Code Snippet for that. See it here---

Can we have this feature soon in BuddyPress?
