Flexible formatting for 14.7 Dashboard Reportlets

You took my lovely dashboard widgets and shrunk them all down into a uniform, small size, which more often than not makes the individual reportlets useless to me because they're too small.  Allow me to size my reportlets across 2 and 3 columns again!  Or else give me the option to turn off the % of all column inside the table-view reportlets, so that my descriptive columns have more display room.

Good news: You absolutely CAN resize your reportlets! When you mouse over them in the editor (i.e., make sure you've clicked "Open Editor" when viewing the dashboard and have the reportlet options down the left side), you'll see arrows appear, allowing you to expand the size of the reportlet up, down, left, or right (depending on where the reportlet lives on the page). Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

Better yet, use the new 14.7 dashboard layout just for people who need/click a "print-friendly format" button.

And while I appreciate (and now see) the option to resize the reportlets, my canvas in which to work is still smaller.  And my screen is taken up with unnecessary formatting if I'm not interested in printing.  Seriously, I don't need all that white space.  I don't need to see the Omniture/my company logos multiple times on one webpage, and I certainly don't need multiples of all that legal footer text. 

 

Just give me my reportlets, and nothing but my reportlets!

That makes sense. Note that the "legacy" v14.6 dashboards are preserved so you can continue to use them. We'll leave this up for others to vote.
