Tabbed Dashboard Not working on Some tablets

Hey Everyone,

What triggers the tabbed dashboard view to happen? Its not happening on all of our tablets here,

We have a bunch of
Galaxy Tab s3 Model Sm-t820 (These ones stay in dashboard view but the screen is far to small for this view so you cant navigate it.

We also have a bunch of Galaxy Tab S5e’s. These ones switch to the tabbed dashboard view and work perfect.

Is there anything I can do to force the tabbed dashboard view on the s3?

I believe it’s based on screen size/pixel width/some other measure because if you take a browser of your app and shrink the width, eventually it will turn into a tabbed dashboard. I don’t know a solution just what is probably causing this, sorry.

Yea, it is ever so slightly wider, may .5 inch.

It’s likely based on some pixels as a percent of screen size or something.
Heres a feature request that you might want to vote for.

Is there anything That I can force the tabbed view with Context(“Host”)??

As far as I know there is not a way to manually trigger the tabbed view on a dashboard since you aren’t able to enable tabbed view on desktops.

A theoretical solution is to filter your main tabs using show ifs possibly. I don’t know if you can use Context(“View”) in a show if of a view but that is an extreme possibility of a work around to show “tabs” using the bottom section.

Better explanation of what I mean is depending on what view you choose out of the menu you could show different sets of views on your primary views

This would be an excellent use of CONTEXT(), actually.

Austin’s approach is a good one.

I have good ideas on occasion.
You would need copies of your views for the menu and the primary views which technically provides a bit of clutter but it’s not that bad since they’re grouped together. I use Context(Host) to decide whether or not my users land on my mobile view or my dashboards and hiding the appropriate options so I can attest to the clutter being useful.
