Visual Display Name for Measures

Hello,

 

I am wondering if there is option for a secondary or display name for measures. For example I have several measures for actuals that are absolute value of actuals, or a change sign of actuals. I'm wondering if there is option to have the display name for all of these measures to be same without renaming each measure on the visual pane.

 

If there isn't an option, is there a current poll to vote for it?

Re: Visual Display Name for Measures

Hi @rtaylor ,

In most visuals,  it displays the legend on the side that make us distinguish clearly. How do you want to implement ? Do you want the effect like the picture?  If so, it is not supported for now. You could submit your request in  Power BI Ideas an vote it up.

Re: Visual Display Name for Measures

Thanks for your response. I'm refering to header information when you using a measure or column name.  Please see below to my header information for the matrix. Notice how some of the headers have are based on a naming convention? Chg_Sign Budget is really just a Budget, but with a different method of calculation. I would like to know if there is way I could name all my variation Budget, without have to change the header for each visual?
