I wanted to request the ability to collapse tiles or sections in the dashboards. If these could flow through to how the PDF displays that would be great.

Hey @Falreign, we haven’t added this feature yet. If you can expand on your desired use case here, I can bring more detailed feedback to the product team!

And/or the ability to facilitate “hiding” panels if the query returns no results

@sam I can see using this feature to make navigating dashboards much easier for users. Right now I have text tile bars acting as “dividers” between different sections of a dashboard. Using a hypothetical Product Usage Dashboard:


Section 1: Product usage overview (i.e. growth of users over time, other summary charts)

Section 2: Details on features used, sessions, etc.

Section 3: Geo detail (users by geo, country, etc.)

Section 4: Additional attributes (company size, length of relationship, etc)


It would be great to be able to collapse the charts/visuals associated with each of these sections so users can easily find the information they are interested in. While my bars are clunky, and other dashboards creators may make different dashboards for different users using the same data, this would make it much easier to keep it all in one dashboard that can service many different users.

Great idea !!!
Would be glad to collapse tables with no results in my dashboards

I would also have a lot of use for this, does anyone have any further news on whether this feature was picked up?

Hi @seanmcewen, this is a good idea; I’ll be sure to pass your idea along to the product team!

Hey @sam, did we ever add this feature? If so, how do I set up my tiles for this?

Hey @sam,


My contribution for this is that my users really want a one stop dashboard for their KPIs ; which are in different time segments.


If they could quickly collapse the “daily” views, which actually have some different calculations than weekly or monthly, they wouldn’t have to scroll and wait for all of these to run.


The current dashboard is set up like:

Daily Header - single number KPIs

Daily details, with drill downs - over longer time periods (much bigger queries)

Weekly Header - single number KPIs

Weekly details, with drill downs - over longer time periods (much bigger queries)

Monthly Header - single number KPIs

Monthly details, with drill downs - over longer time periods (much bigger queries)

Bumping this again. This is also something we would be interested in.

This feature is requested 4-5 years ago, any news?

If you need to collapse a lot of things in your dashboard, doesn’t it call for separate dashboards? (and if you send it out, perhaps you need a coincise version for that purpose?)

Hi :) 
 

I’m doing a lot of alert and monitoring dashboards, so if a look is empty it means no errors or flags had happened. In that case, I would like that look to collapse, resulting in easier overview of today's alerts..

Makes sense, even though the fact that we need dashboards to do alerts/monitor data seems like a wrong turn for me but of course, we have no other options. For this reason it would make sense to collapse it, my comment actually was to the people commented earlier but your use case does make sense. I just wish we could build a alert queries rather than setting up alerts on Dashboards
