    fixed color legend on the top left side corner of a chart

    naveen.yanamadala

      Hi,

       

      I have 4 charts in a tableau dashboard and if i display all the legends for all the 4 charts on the bottom it looks busy so I want to include the legends on the top left corner of all the charts.

       

      To achieve this. I make legend as a floating object and placed them left corner of the chart. Myy floating objects move around the dashboard  when end users view my  dashboard on a device with different screen resolution or with different size of a dashboard.

       

      Please let me know  how to fix the legend  on the chart regardless of change in the size of the dashboard.

       

      Thanks In Advance.

          Hello Naveen

           

          Floating dashboard items aren't fixed and will move around as users view your report with different screen resolutions. You have two options:

          1. fix the size of your dashboard to the lowest resolution screen it'll be viewed on (i.e. don't let it automatically resize)

          2. Don't have the legends set to float, maybe try and rearrange how they appear (single row etc.) so they use up less space:
