I have to create the UI for a new dashboard. Most of the sections follow "single column, multiple records" policy. E.g. one section lists all the dates where attendance data is missing. So, it has only one column called "Date" which can have as many records as possible.
Currently I am using a grid with just one column, which wastes a lot of space on screen.
I am trying to figure out what is the more sensible approach here to design the second table. Should I try creating n number of labels instead?
Page has about 15 such sections. Two sections require only one column. The grid control is an existing one which do not support orientation feature. I tried reducing the size of the grid controls, and placing two next to each other, which seemed like a right idea. Other than that, I tried placing n number of labels too, both of which seem like a good enough idea.
There is no requirement of interaction other than clicking on the link in first column in some tables.
