Drag new element onto a workbook page

  • Describe Feature
    On a workbook page, when you go to add a new element (Data, UI, Control) onto the page, it will add the new element next to whatever element is active on the page. It would be nice if instead I could hold+drag the new element from the left-side pane onto the workbook page. This would allow better ease-of-use to the layout of the page.

  • What is the use case?
    Adding new elements to a workbook page.

  • How often would this feature be used?
    Every time a workbook is created.

  • What is the impact of this feature on your organization?
    There are obvious work-arounds: either add the new element and drag it to the spot it is needed, or change the active element and then add the new element to the page. But for improved ease-of-use, being able to drag the new element in would be helpful

We’re working on updating our workbook layouts, and this is one of the improvements we hope to get in.
Let me know if you’re interested in giving feedback, once we’re at that stage.


thanks @erica! would love the opportunity to provide feedback (for this, and for other new features too if needed)
