The Explore product team is happy to announce responsive dashboards available in the beta dashboard builder.
This announcement answers the following questions:
What’s changing and why?
We heard feedback from our customers that the current view of the dashboards is too small, especially on bigger screens. While building dashboards, users could add components and extend the dashboard vertically, but the horizontal layout was hardcoded and not responsive. Because of that, dashboards did not use the full width of the screen, and sometimes the data in the components was hard to see.
We’re implementing responsive dashboards that fit the width of the viewer’s screen. That way, the dashboards utilize the whole screen and are viewable on different devices.
How will this affect me?
From now on, new and existing dashboards that were built using the beta dashboard builder will support the responsive layout.
The width of the dashboard and component size will adjust based on the user’s screen size. The maximum supported width is 2k resolution.
What do I need to do?
This feature will be automatically activated in your Explore instance, and you can take advantage of it in the beta dashboard builder.
Some of your existing dashboards might require you to adjust the sizes of components to better fit the new layout. The best way is to do this is to see how the dashboard layout appears on your screen size and adjust accordingly, if necessary.
We recommend creating a copy of your dashboard and adjusting it to fit the new layout to be sure your original dashboard is not lost or disrupted while you’re making the changes.
