Dynamic canvas size

Would it be possible to have the multi-chart canvas and its contents scale with the window size, as opposed to specifying its size in pixels? I currently have a client who is keen to show their dashboard on a wide range of screen sizes, and due to the limitation of dashboard layouts, they've opted for a canvas to display several charts on one screen. The problem with this is that the canvas doesn't scale with the window/dashboard size, leaving it cut off on small screens and poorly laid out on large screens. Could it be changed so that the canvas scales to the available space, much like reports do when dropped into a column on a dashboard?

Hi Ashleigh,

Apologies for the delay on this.

I can understand the need for canvas dynamic size, which is something we will discuss in the future, but not something that is currently planned.

However what is currently planned is the ability for a free-form dashboard layout.

In Yellowfin 7.5 (released around May 2018) we will have the ability to create your own dashboard layout :) .

If there are any updates on the dynamic canvas, I'll update this idea.

In the meantime, please let us know if there was anything else you were after.
