Adjusting Column Width

You can adjust column width in table reports.

If you adjust the width while viewing a report on the dashboard, the adjusted width is preserved only while you are viewing the dashboard. The width will be reset to the previously set value when you refresh the page or visit the dashboard next time.

To save the adjusted width, do one of the following:

  • Open the report in the Report Editor, adjust column width, and save the report.
  • Open for editing the dashboard where the report is used, adjust column width, and save the dashboard.

Adjust and Preserve the Column Width per Measure Across Attribute Values

You can resize a column and preserve the adjusted column width for any columns with the same measure across attribute values that may be added to the report in the future.

Example: You have a column with a product sliced down by multiple measures (price, number of sold items, and so on). In the beginning, you may only have just a few products, but with time you add more. If you preserve the column width while resizing, then whenever another product is added to the report, the columns with the measures are automatically resized to the width that you have set before.

Steps:

  1. Hold Alt, and hover over the right side of the column header until a horizontal split cursor appears.
  2. Drag or double-click the column line.
    The column is resized.
    The adjusted width is saved and becomes default for the measure that is displayed in the resized column. When a column with the same measure is added to the report, it will be automatically resized to the same width.
