Is it possible to display another name for a field instead of its name in tooltips of a column chart

Hi All,

I have a column named FR_Revenue which is calculated Measure ('New Measure') on the Values section of the Column chart.

I want to dispalay Revenue instead of FR_Revenue in the tooltips.

Can i do it?


Thanks in advance




As @Seth_C_Bauer said, it's not supported to replace data field with different name in visual. And currently, the only workaround is duplicating another one with different name. Please submit a feature request on Ideas:



@taumirza There is no functionality that I am aware of that allows you to replace the actual field names with different one's in the visual. Since this is a measure, you could just rename it. But I understand the need for, and would also like, a way to use different names in a visual.
