Scroll Data Table Widget

Please add support for scrolling within a Data Table Widget. This could be as simple as support for the mouse wheel scrolling when positioned over the widget (great for touch devices too as a gesture could be used). Or alternatively, add the traditional scroll bar (but please, a very thin one). I see a scroll bar briefly appear when the widget is refreshed, so i assume scrolling functionality is there, but for some reason you disabled it.

    This would be a great way to put a bunch of Data Tables all in one place on a Dashboard and give a user that elusive "one stop shop" which they so often request.

    Thank you for your suggestion!

    In a typical case, Dashboards are designed for showing a brief look at the data, so there is no point to show very long lists here. But we'll think about adding a scroll bar as an option.

    @Vladimir I would really appreciate it. Your common use case may not need to be a long list, but my company has a ton of applications where scrolling would be amazing or where the short list cuts off just one or two entities I wish to have displayed. Really glad the developers for this product listen to the users and provide feedback, you guys are amazing.

    @Vladimir : maybe this wasn't the original intent of DB's, but here are some examples, in hopes that it clarifies and speed up implementation:

    1. Tasks and Events are data tables you want your users to constantly look at, so you put them on the dashboard. If they can't scroll they either will miss tasks and events or alternatively you can set it to auto adjust height, but then it can take up too much real estate on the page.

    2.Approvals or any other data table that requires action - same as above, you want the user to have one place to go and see all there actionable items.

    Btw, the scroll is already there when a widget is smaller than a certain height [see attachment] so looks like all you have to do is extended the range and add a setting to enable scroll or not per widget.
