Show More Data with 12-Column Dashboards

12-column dashboards give you even more control over data layout, but you can still make 9-column dashboards if you want. 12-columns or 9, dashboards created this release have rows that are half as tall as dashboards created previously. Previously created dashboards retain their original row height.

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

Why: More columns and shorter rows means more components and more layout options in the same space.

How: To switch between 12 and 9 columns, create or edit a dashboard. Open the dashboard properties by clicking the properties icon (Properties). From the Dashboard Grid Size section of the properties window, choose 12 columns or 9 columns.
