Ability to customize table headings without creating new measures/members


It’d be great to be able to customize the titles of Measures/Dimensions, Calc Measures/Calc Members, in the report UI, without having to create another calculated member or measure just so that the right text appears in the report. Currently, we create a variety of calculated measures and members pointing to the same measures/members, just to display the right title for the metrics used in the report.


Hi @ekarra!

I hear you on this one! That would definitely be a helpful improvement. It has been discussed before and I added your vote to the backlog item.

Meanwhile, we are working on Report specific measures (this should be part of eazyBI version 6.1) which would help with creating the renamed measures only in the context of particular report.

We reviewed this feature and closed it after the solution to build report specific measures was released with eazyBI version 6.1. ​

Report-specific measures are available for any user who can create and save reports. We suggest starting to work on a report with report specific measures. The changes in measures during reports/measures development will be faster.

We save those measures only at the moment when the report is saved. Remember saving the report if there are any changes in report-specific measures you would like to have in the report.

I would suggest creating shared measures for cases when many reports start using the same specific measures, and they proved to work as expected and are useful for many reports.

Here is a list of all recent changes: Changelog - eazyBI for Jira
