Please change horrible combined pages and scrolling lists

When selecting items from a list such as dashboards or device selection for widget properties, the interface is a horrible mixture of pages and scrolled lists.

Can you think of a better way to present the selection?

Hi @mantracourt ,

Thanks so much for reaching out about this and sharing your perspective. Could you please explain or share with us an image of the interface you mentioned? Do you have any specific recommendations on how we can improve this process?

I’m sorry to hear that the current interface is confusing in those cases. This requires a considerable change, so I will pass your feedback to our Product team so that they can consider this moving forward and weigh it against our current product roadmap.

Please tell me if there’s anything else that I can help with.

There is only one solution I can think of and that is just a single scrollable list of available items.
I assume that there were technnical reasons why this would be broken down into pages.
It just feels wrong to scroll, page, scroll again etc.

Just try and select a dashboard when there are 30 or 40 in the list to feel how clunky it is. I can’t see why you could not just have a single scrollable list.

I guess the other solution is to not offer a page size but each page always loads enough to fill the available view port. At least you just be paging with no scrolling.

Hi @mantracourt ,

Thank you for your response and for sharing your suggestions regarding the changes you will make.

I’m going to pass along your request to our product team so that they can consider this in the future. In the meantime, I’ll be sure to reach out to you if there is any update.

Thanks again for your suggestion
