How to scale Jira Gadget

scale jira gadget.JPGHi There,


I am looking to scale jira gadgets from their original size. 

For example the Task gadget leaves a lot of extra space below the text. I want it to ideally scale to the size of the text. 

At a minimum if i can scale the height manually that would help.

Hi Colin,

It is not possible out of the box to resize gadgets in the dashboard, the reason being is that the sizing is set when the gadget is developed so to make any changes would require creating a new custom gadget.
