Question

Views in a dashboard do not resize correctly when viewed from different screen sizes. For example, some views in a dashboard might be cut off when viewed on a smaller screen.

Environment

Tableau Server 8.0 - 8.2

Answer

Option 1

Set the dashboard size to Fixed.

Note: This option will result in a dashboard that does not resize automatically. The dashboard will not be optimized for all screens and might display considerable white space on larger screens, while on smaller screens, you might need to scroll to see the entire dashboard.

Option 2

Set the dashboard size to Range and only specify a minimum size. The dashboard won't resize for small screens but will expand automatically for larger screens.
