Level 2 Sprint 3 Activity: Build Distribution Summary Dashboard
Here is a picture of the sketch of the Distribution Summary (aka 1. Distribution Center Review) dashboard:
Note that it shows two module grids(SYS07 and SYS08) and a text box ('SKU Details") all simultaneously adjacent to the DAT01 grid's right edge. I think this is a great layout aesthetically and I'd love to be able to build my dashboard in a manner entirely consistent with this sort of placement.
Because of the way Anaplan manages grid element sizes, however, I do not believe that Anaplan actually supports building this sort of relative placement.
Is anyone out there able to "trick" their dashboard builder interface into achieving the above relative placement? I suspect that it may involve the placement of ancillary blank text boxes, but I also have a feeling that it might actually be impossible. I'd of course love to be proven wrong.

Well, it turns out that I'm incorrect. I can actually achieve the necessary relative positioning, it's just a rather involved process involving putting the bottom left grid to the left of the rest and then moving up above it everything that needs to sit above it.
It's a lovely, user-friendly, intuitive process. Clearly I'm just thinking about things in a rare, edge-case kind of way that few if any others share.
