I’ve noticed that on the web dashboard, the header and footer never move as you scroll and they always take up space on the screen regardless of what part of the page you are viewing. Is this really necessary or beneficial?
Here is a screenshot that shows what the dashboard looks like when viewed from my phone in landscape mode.
As you can see, the main content of the dashboard is reduced to just a sliver due to the phone status bar, browser UI, and dashboard header and footer all taking some space.
I’m not a huge fan of sticky elements on websites, especially when viewed on a mobile device.
My suggestion is to make the header and footer not sticky so that they scroll with the rest of the dashboard, leaving more room for the main content of the page on the screen. This is just my personal preference. What does everyone else think?
