Feature request: Wallboard mode (fullscreen, TV-friendly)

Hi, I just discovered Google Data Studio and got very excited. Finally I can build good looking dashboards for Google Analytics data that are easy to share. However, while the dashboard designer is very powerful, there seems to be no way to create a tv-friendly, fullscreen view of the dashboard that one can project on a wall in the office. Please add "wallboard mode".

YES, YES, YES! I've been Chromecasting the s... out of my Data Studio reports and all my clients are thrilled. But we do need a wallboard mode asap to make it look even better.

It had one before, which I used, but this functions seem to have fallen away.  Was pretty helpful to make screen-cuts of the whole sheet though ...

Hey there! Curious about how you're doing this. How are you looping different data studio reports or pages within a report?  Also, are you able to get the reports to automatically update the data? Thank you!

I've been using a Chrome extension called 'Data Studio Fullscreen' to project a report on a TV monitor at work and it works pretty well. Just a suggestion, hope it helps until this feature becomes native.

Thanks for the suggestion Drew! I just tried the extension and looks like it doesn't work correctly, unfortunately. It zooms in too far, resulting in the dashboard being cropped.

Maybe its the layout dimensions? I have mine set for a TV with 1920x1080 resolution as 1920w*990h and it's perfect.

I don't think that's related - the extension is supposed to fit whatever's in the canvas into the current screen size. I tried playing with the canvas size and it didn't have any effect.

Bummer. Hopefully Google will add this feature soon as it kind of just makes sense. Good luck!
