Reporting Specialist Superbadge: Step 7 - Create the Solarbot Dashboard : The 'Solarbot Pipeline by Stage' component is the incorrect size or in the incorrect position.

Hello, Team,

I think I would have read all the responses in the various communiities to try and solve this error -  The 'Solarbot Pipeline by Stage' component is the incorrect size or in the incorrect position - but two days of efforts have been unsuccessful.

I removed the picklist values that were not required by deactivating them for this challenge. It did not helpr. In a couple of posts there were suggestions to place the component on the upper right and tried out that too.

I do not see a "Sort by rows" option for formatting the dashoard. 

This is how my dashbord formatting window looks like:
Error message on first dashboard challengeAnd, that is how my component appears:
Componnent 1
Hope to understand where/what I am missing. 

Thanks in advance for your help with this!

Hello, Jega, 

Thanks for trying to help. I had tried all that out actually before making the post. Incidentally, without making any further changes, it worked and I was able to complete the challenge. Regards, Shyamala

Thank you very much, Harsha, you also helped me. I would like to add that when it is required " X coordinate 7" it means 7 empty cases before inserting the graph.
