Feature Idea: Insights dashboards - Character truncation, scrollbars, adjustable columns



I’m not sure why this isn’t possible in the existing product but these are pretty much rudimentary features in most any kind of dashboard application. The Insights dashboards/queries provide limited data in the place that we should see the most data. Particularly when it comes to large result sets and field values that extend beyond an arbitrary character limit (URLs would be an example of this).

  1. There currently exists no option to show the entire field
  2. The columns are not adjustable so you cannot drag/move them to see more data
  3. There is no scrollbar available for additional results in the set (other than to ‘expand’ the dashboard)

Hi @Michael.Sleep! I hear you: the lack of visibility here is frustrating. I have passed your input along as well as created a poll so our community can also chime in. Thanks for sharing that helpful image with us, too!
