I want the text name as 'IVM 2017' instead of '%gt IVM 2017', is that possible?

Re: remove '%gt' from a column name in matrix visualization

Hi @hnoriega,

 

I also tried to recreate your problem, I tried to rename a measure where I added something like "%gt"

X is also a measure like in your problem.

When I renamed it by just right clicking on it "rename"

In my dashboard the column name automatically changed when I removed "%GT" from my measure

So I am not sure why it won't work with you, maybe it is a bug ?

@hnoriega,

 

Did you create a Quick measure to show the percentage? If that is the case, you can right click the measure in your Fields and click rename to type any name you want.

Re: remove '%gt' from a column name in matrix visualization

Hi, yes its a measure. but I already have the name as the one I want.. the problem is that when I calculateas a percent of grand total is where I have that error.

 

I only want to remove the '%GT'

You've got the answer in your picture already 🙂

 

You can simply double click %GT IVM 2017 to rename the field.
