A view placed on a dashboard is compressed/distorted ("scrunched") and has no scrollbar.


Tableau Desktop


  1. Navigate to the dashboard
  2. Click the view on the dashboard to select it
  3. In the dropdown menu in the top toolbar that says "Fit Height" or "Entire View" select either "Standard" or "Fit Width"


The "Fit Height" or "Entire View" fit settings tell Tableau Desktop to force the entire view (or entire height) to fit within the box that contains the view on the dashboard. The fit setting for a view can be different for the view in its worksheet tab and the view on the dashboard.
