[TABLEAU] Fixed Size Dashboard



Fixed Size Dashboard

By default, the views in a dashboard automatically scale to fill the entire window. This means that the size of the dashboard can vary from machine to machine, depending on the screen resolution and the size of the window. While sometimes you want the dashboard to scale automatically to fill the window, you can ensure a consistent layout by specifying a fixed size for the dashboard. The size of the dashboard is displayed at the bottom of the Dashboard window. 
The dashboard below is set to automatically fit to the window, which means that each view is scaled smaller when it is displayed on a small screen. To ensure that the dashboard looks the same on all screens, you can specify a fixed size.



Specify a fixed size
 
Step 1
Click Edit in the Size area of the Dashboard window.


Step 2
In the Page Setup dialog box, select one of the following behaviors:
  • Automatic - the dashboard automatically resizes to fill the application window. This is the default behavior.
  • Exactly - the dashboard always remains a fixed size. If the dashboard is larger than the window, the dashboard becomes scrollable.
  • Range - the dashboard scales between the specified minimum and maxium sizes, after which scroll bars or white space are displayed.
  • At Least - the dashboard automatically resizes to fill the application window, but does not scale smaller than a specified minimum size.
  • At Most - the dashboard automatically resizes to fill the application window, but does not scale larger than the specified maximum size. When the dashboard is viewed larger, white space is added.





Step 3
Select one of the following types of sizes:
  • Standard - select from a list of common sizes, such as 800 x 600 pixels.
  • Custom - Specify a custom width and height in the text boxes.





Step 4
When finished, click OK
