Change card label

There are no formatting options available for cards, and I can't find a way to rename them. A count is labeled "Count of some_numb". I know renaming the field will change the "some_numb", but I can't get rid of "Count of". Ideas?

Re: Change card label

You create an implicit measure by dragging a numerical field..Try create a measure based on that field..and the card will have the name of the measure - can be any name..

@RWhiteman As far I know and used Power BI, formatting options are NOT available for card and gauge visualizations. Thanks

Re: Change card label

when other objects can be changed, it's not logical that cards object can't be changed, in this moment we can only change the background.

Hi Konstantinos,

 

I'm pretty new using Power BI. Could you please explain what you mean by "create a measure based on that field" ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Change card label

Power BI seems to have a simple way of changing card labels. I have tried this in Power BI service but it should work on Power BI Desktop too. 

 

The first chart below shows the original labels that are populated based on the name of the measures. Follow the steps listed below to change the labels on your chart.

 

  1. Click your chart, and click the small triange next to the measure name on fields tab. 
  2. Click the rename button and type the new Label that you want to show on the chart.
  3. Legend label is automatically updated with the new label value.

I hope this helps!!
