Ability to freeze column headers in reporting crosstabs

The feature in dashboard crosstabs to freeze column headers is excellent, and should be replicated as well in the reporting environment. This is a long standing user request that is very difficult to achieve today.

    This is a claim, since this was possible in 10.2.2 and got lost. It is "planned" since Dec 2018, "High" priority. When will this be available? Now is April 2020.

    I agree with Stephen. Could you please clarify when this change will be implemented? 
    This functionality should be available in Interactive mode and dashboards. 

    Thank you.

    Can this be clarified to include the freezing on both column AND ROW headings, i.e. to replicate the Cognos Analytics dashboard behaviour fully and to ensure it is available in interactive mode.
