In response to the most popular feature request in the community, we’re excited to introduce Scalable Dashboards! Scalable dashboards enable you to design a single dashboard that scales to fit the size of the device you are viewing.
Creating a new dashboard will default to using a Scalable Dashboard and will prompt you for what type of device you’re targeting (which adjusts how many ‘columns’ wide the dashboard is).
After creating the dashboard, you can also adjust how many columns wide a dashboard is in the Dashboard Settings. You can switch back to the legacy ‘Reflowing’ (Tile Width) sizing approach by tapping the small link in the creation dialog or by editing the Dashboard Settings after creating the dashboard.
Converting Existing Dashboards to Scalable
- Open your Dashboard Settings
- Change the Sizing Approach to Scalable (Row Width)
- Adjust how many columns wide you want the dashboard to be
- Save the Dashboard Settings.
Scaling and Tile Header / Footer sizes
Various elements of your tiles will automatically scale as your dashboard scales. This also means that some things that were previously a ‘fixed’ size like tile headers and footers will now scale along with the size of a 1x1 tile. So if you manually adjust your column width to be a bigger number (which will shrink the size of tiles), you may want to use Themes/Styles to set a custom header or footer size.
Reference Column Sizes
These are designed to roughly match how many tiles wide would have fit at the default Tile Size of Normal (160px). As noted above, you can always adjust the number of columns in the Dashboard Settings.
