Hi @Virtus Gavan
I hope you're well and safe!
You'll have to open the Report/Sheet and change it there, and then it will show in the Dashboard.
Did that work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe, and have a fantastic week!

Feel free to contact me for help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or anything else.
that doesn't do what i want it to.
my flow was
go to dashboard
select widget to edit (table)
attempt to resize the column. this will not allow me to.
i can adjust the overall table size but not the individual columns
Aha! You want to have different sizes on the cell level.
Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment, but it's an excellent idea!

thanks for responding!!! what determines the column size do you know? (smartsheet 1)?
also what determines which columns are shown? in the main report i have way more (smartsheet 2)
sorry about this but i have inherited this dashboard!
Happy to help!
The size is automatic, but you can change it in the report and hide/unhide/move columns around, showings what you need in the Dashboard.
yes but how? please.
You'd have to open the Report and drag the borders of the columns or double-click on it if you want it to adjust to the column name.
are u talking about the report itself or the widget? i can adjust the report columns but not the widget columns.
how do i select which columns go into the widget report form the actual report?
appreciate your time on this! thank you!
You're more than welcome!
Yes, you'd select what should be shown and how in the report. There isn't a way to do it through the widget.
Sometimes you'll have to play around with it to get the columns to show in the best way.
"you'd select what should be shown and how in the report." how do i do that?
What you see in the Report is what will show.
yes it does. thanks. im working off an old report which shows a selection of columns not all of them in the actual report. no idea how to select which columns i want to show as i dont want to show all, nor do i want to set up a separate report just for the dashboard widget as i'll have to link the two.
You can move the columns or/and right-click on the column name to hide columns.
