Auto-calculated row numbers in LookML Dashboards

dashboards
#1

We have a very long LookML Dashboard (~300 rows), and it’s extremely tedious to make any modifications to the layout. For example, if we need to add a new section in the top half of the dashboard, that requires an update to every single tile below it with a new row number. This makes our development cycle painfully long.

Instead, some auto-calculation of the row number would save so much time and effort, and make this a scalable dev solution. Without it, I don’t see a great path forward for continuing to use LookML Dashboards (but I definitely want to use it, as we need version control / deployment pipeline for these dashboards).
