Responsive Design??

Hi guys! As I am working in home office right now, currently without second external screen, I need a solution to have multiple windows open and visible at once on my laptop. So I use the MS windows option to move windows, i.e. a browser, to the left or right hand side of the screen. "half screen view mode" by pressing WIN+LEFT/RIGHT.  See also the screenshot. The bad thing is, that PD is not really responsive... There isn't even a scrollbar to move content horizontally. I only see the left part with information about the account/contact. But nothing is left to show interactions, like emails, activities... 

What do you think about it? Is there a workaround? What do you think of responsive design?? How should it look like?? Please share your thoughts! Thanks.

    I think the problem is the minimum width: the layout of PD IS responsive but - as usual - there is a minimum width (set by developers), below which it is not possible to change the layout. My2Cents :-)

    Hi @Sascha Briest 

    @Marco Govoni is right, nonetheless, I'll pass on your post to our team to take a look if we can improve this experience!

    Confirming - on a Mac, Pipedrive reacts responsively until about 60%, then starts cutting off the right side as you shrink below that.

    Thanks @Chris Rozon I've spoken to our PM looking after our UI/UX and he's taken note. Hopefully we can improve the experience in the future.

    Great Points raised here by everyone!

    I experienced the same issue and would add to it something I saw on my iPad Pro which does not exist on desktop => zoom function +- which I would like to see on desktop = basically it reduces the whole zoom % of complete window like most of the modern browser support. However on iPad Pro it has only 2x zoom steps.

    If there would be a slider with which the user can adjust the zoom % of window then we are able to customize our viewing experience seamless in relation to our screen / windows sizes.

    @Martin Pfeiffer all browsers usually support zooming natively. What browser are you working on and what product do you use? Desktop, ipad?

    using Chrome, Firefox, Safari & Desktop with large screens and iPad Pro.

    From the browser side it is OK to adjust. What I mean is rather having zoom slider, or fit/fill option to easily adjust it inside Pipedrive directly rather than tweaking the browser window. Addressing the responsive design I guess is the right way forward as it will ultimately look into all cross platform viewing situations, for example a portrait styled iPad Pro / or desktop browser window...

    Gotcha, passing that on to the team, thanks for clarifying @Martin Pfeiffer 🙏🏻

    At home I work on a 49" 4K QLED display. It's the only way to go IMO.  2 full size windows open side by side full screen mode on a Mac. Then with the spaces feature sliding across multiple desktops, it's a dream.
