How to stop table column widths auto resizing in dashboards
We have produced a tabular report that is then displayed in a dashboard that is refreshed every so many seconds to provide a near real time update on user status.
The users can select an Unavailable reason in the client app that they use and the description of these statuses can vary in length. When agents choose a status the "Status" column either expands or shrinks automatically to match the longest length description. This is slightly annoying as the table columns are constantly resizing themselves. Ive attached a small mp4 file that shows this using only 2 members of staff but in real life this could be 50 - 200 users all changing status.
We have tried setting the column width in the report column data formatting, turning off word wrap and setting the max number of characters but nothing seems to stop the dashboard from auto resizing the columns.
The only thing that came close to making a difference was padding the the column header label out with additional characters from "Status" to "----- Status -----"
This seemed to improve things slightly although the dashboard seemed to add some additional padding on the widths of the columns.
