'Freeze Panes' Functionality When Scrolling in a Module within a Dashboard

'Freeze Panes' Functionality When Scrolling in a Module within a Dashboard

The ability to freeze the rows or columns when scrolling within a module that has been published to a dashboard.  In some instances, when you cannot trim the module to be user friendly on a dashboard and scrolling is required, it is easy to lose your spot as to where you are within the rows or columns of the module.  A 'Freeze Panes' type of functionality, as it exists within Excel, would be incredibly helpful and has been requested multiple times by a client.

One technique I use on dashboards to limit the need for scrolling is to create a Master Module and a Detailed Module. 

 

The way this works is the top module would be the master with the list in rows and the most important line items shown in columns.  Then below publish a second module with the list as a page selector and the relevant additional line items in rows.  This allows a user to see the primary data in the main grid but then select an item to see detailed information about it below. 

 

An example is the Master module could have products and then line items to plan units by time, the detailed module would have the product attributes such as style, cost, price, etc.

Definitely in need of this functionality, especially the ability to freeze header rows on a dashboard!

This seems to be a feature in the New UX. Are there plans to introduce it to the dashboard in the classic?
