Put More Data in Less Space with Compact Components

Compact components usher in a new era of data-dense dashboards. Any component can be a compact component, but metrics make the most sense. Dashboard editors can now add one row by one column (1x1) components to dashboards. Previously, the smallest possible component was 1 row by 2 columns.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

Why: Compact components let you group even more related metrics together.

This dashboard features a row of 1x1 metric components showing important details opportunity pipeline (1). The dashboard also features 1x2 and 2x2 metric components detailing the opportunity pipeline (2). The 1x1 metric components don't show a title or a source report link.

How: To compact a component, first edit a dashboard. Then select the component you want to compact, grab the corner, and shrink it.

To see a compact component's title and source report link and a larger view of the component, expand it by clicking the expand icon (Expand).
