Web Portal Column Widths in List view RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently upgraded from Reporting Services 2008 to 2017. When you display the web portal in List Mode rather than Tiles the column widths for Modified Date and Modified by are huge and the Description column is too narrow to read all the content. In the 2008 web portal the Description column was the largest width and the Date and By column were auto sized to the smallest width. Is there a way to adjust the Description column width or make these expandable in 2017? It would be nice for our users to be able to read the full Description column. I know they can click the ... next to the report name to read the full description but it would be nice to display more of it in the portal.

  • Hi SEAKCoder,

    Out of some kind of consideration, the SSRS development team has made the web portal more fixed that previous version for SSRS 2016/2017.  We could unfortunately not change web portal layout very freely. 

    If you really need this feature, I suggest you submit the requirement at https://feedback.azure.com/forums/908035-sql-server.

    If the requirement mentioned by customers for many times, the product team may consider to add this feature in the next SQL Server version. Your feedback is valuable for us to improve our products and increase the level of service provided.

    Best Regards,
