Resize Columns to Fit Your Content

If truncated data and unused white space in columns aren’t your favorite things, wave goodbye to them. You can now adjust report column widths in Lightning Experience report builder and the run page.

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

How: To resize a column width, hover over the column header’s right edge. When the resize cursor appears, drag the edge until the data fits right for you. When you’re done, click the cursor to set the new width.

Columns don’t retain new widths in some instances, such as, when you:

  • Switch browsers, browse in incognito mode, log into different accounts, or clear browser’s local storage.
  • Change the report format from tabular, summary, or matrix to joined or historical tracking reports.
  • Change the order of blocks in joined reports.
