Can I change the label for an axis?

Is there a way to change the label displayed in a chart axis to something different from the column name in the datasource?

I don't believe so, but you can change the actual dimension name when editing the data source.

 

If you don't want to do that, you can uncheck the "Show axis title" in the style tab and just add a text box with your desired label. Not the most elegant solution but it's easy Smiley Happy

That seems right (and will do). But it's too bad. It would be a nice feature.

WHat I have been doing is "Creating a new metric" and then just taking the exact metric I want a new label for, and multiplying it by 1.. and then naming it what I want.. its a silly way to do things, but the only way i could figure out how to get it done.
