Reduce blank space in dashboards


Dashboards currently have extra space between cards on all sides, and text boxes have a minimum height, which leads to a large amount of blank space both vertically and horizontally. This is especially problematic when creating a dashboard that needs to be exported to PDF or PowerPoint.

Ideally, we need the ability to change the margins within cards and/or the padding between cards. If not, we need to have them reduced by at least 50%.

New spacing, margin, border capabilities are available in App Studio, this is the preferred tool to use when needing these type of capabilities.

    Two solutions that don't really solve your issue but might help. Using column widths, you can set the amount of width for a column. This includes making some fake filler columns. The other way is to use html table with a setting for padding. When I was looking for border styles, I came across a post talking about removing borders. The solution showed an html table with html code for padding. I never tried it myself, but that might work.

    100% agree the Domo style is very sparse. Even for dashboards that you're not planning to export to PPT or PDF, it's very difficult to create a page that doesn't require scrolling, where most dashboard guidelines recommend creating something that can fit on a single screen.
