          HI Nirmal

           

          I'm not necessarily going to be the one to provide an answer to you, but please provide a bit more clarity on what you're actually asking.  Is this about maximising how the reports get displayed when viewed on server  or something else?  Include as much detail as you can, including the version of Server you are using and any screen shots if relevant that highlight the problem.

           

          Thanks

          Donna

              How a report is displayed on server is dependant on a variety of things

              - the settings applied to the dashboard when authored through Tableau desktop (did the author fix them, or set them to automatic - fixing is usually recommended ) - Size and Lay Out Your Dashboard

              - the resolution of the machine displaying the report - while one person may see the report taking up all the screen, another may find they're having to scroll due to differeing resolution...

              Typically the size of th dashboard to present needs to give consideration as to the main purpose of the report.  I typically choose an A4 landscape fixed size by default so I know if someone happens to want to print, it will, but if I run out of space for what's required I will adjust it, unless I absolutely know the report has to be printable.
